Two years ago Manuel was diagnosed with kidney failure. On top of that he’s a type 2 diabetic. He’s been undergoing dialysis treatments 3 days a week for the last 2 years. As you can imagine this has taken a physical and emotional toll on him and his family. The good news is doctors see him fit and ready for a kidney transplant. However, before moving forward with the procedure there are financial and housing requirements he has to meet. Your donation to Manuel will go towards temporary housing in Portland, OR near OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University), meals for him and 2 full time caregivers as well as transportation. He will be required to stay within a 20 drive from OHSU for the next 3-4 weeks in case of any medical emergencies after the procedure as well as regular office visits (2-3 days a week).
As soon as we provide evidence to OHSU that Manuel can afford housing and meals while he recovers, they will move forward with the transplant.
Thank you for taking the time to read Manuel’s story and we greatly appreciate your help.
