Artie Ponce's Kidney Transplant

Hello, my name is Maria Ponce and my son, Artie Ponce, suffers from renal failure. He is in dire need of a second kidney transplant. He has been doing peritoneal dialysis from my home for about 2 and a half years. Artie has been blessed to have a family friend donate him a kidney. Artie will be going back and forth to Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for the next three months to undergo treatmeants to prepare him for a second transplant. Artie received his first transplant when he was 6 years old. We have been saving to offset the costs for his procedure and his donor. Any money given will be greatly appreciated and used towards expensive medication after surgery, housing to stay in LA for about 3 months, gas, food and anything else that may help offset our costs during this time of need. We truly appreciate any assistance in this time of need. God bless you, The Ponce family.
