This campaign is manage by Nika Brown, using my Facebook page. Hello, Hiram. You can contact Nika at Nikabrown on Twitter. If you want more information, please send message to verify that the campaign is real and for the purpose exposed here. Hurricane Maria survivor in Puerto Rico. After the Hurricane things in Puerto Rico are not the same, no hospital to do transplant operation, because power come and goes, and there is fewer donations. He is trying to move from PR to TX to get a better life (Pay rent until I get housing aid), also to buy a car. Here I can't move without a car, everything is so hard to do. My girl helps me with my treatment, doctors appointment and getting help to do my chores. As you can read your donation will be used to the things I mention, nothing more. Please donate. I will be posting information about me so you can feel that your donation is in good hands. Now, let me tell you my story. My name is Alberto Silva Mendez. I am from Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico. I was a freelance basketball coach in my town. I did it because I like basketball and wanted young people to get off the streets. Many young people in my hands turned in stars and good men. Town folks know me as Silva. I always help people, I am a painter too. Painting motivates me, relieved my burden and above all helps me to leave a legacy for future generations. This is my hobby, but always people cooperate paying for the paintings. Since 2009 I am on dialysis. Despite having exercised all my life, I had a heart attack that caused me to lose my kidneys. The cost of a transplant operation is very high and between treatments and medical appointments I spend money. Here in PR you have to pay for a transplant, I have to travel a long distance (2 hours) in order to get to my transplant appointments , without a car is hard to make it, so everything is money. Currently, I take care on my condition and live $ on my paintings, which I sell them no more than $100. So if you want, you can donate to my cause. ¡Thank you! And as I say to young people: ¡Do not give up!
