My Name is Carlos Montoya ,

I grew up in Tavernier Fl , a small town where everything has to do with the ocean . I moved to Orlando when I turned 18 to attend college with my best friend.  I am 34 now. Many years later I found out I was diabetic and had high blood pressure /Hypertensive . Little did I know, the affects it was taking on my body physically and medically . In 2013 I was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure and was immediately put on dialysis. A few months later it had progressed to stage 4. The treatment has been compared to Chemo therapy for cancer patients. Everyday becomes a struggle , my entire Existence is being challenged by my health . I have gone through many steps towards getting a kidney transplant to extend  my life , but the financial aspect of it is quite expensive . My current insurance pays for 80% of my bills. I am left with the other 20% plus living expenses . My insurance estimates 300k for the procedure with 3% saved (because i can't work 6-8 months), 20% out of pocket medical expenses and medicine costs . So I am not only working but trying to live and save so that in the end I can pay for my kidney transplant whether it’s a Year from now or longer. But, I know I can't stay on dialysis for ever. My body will not last. 

I appreciate your time and I am truly grateful that you have taken the time to read my story. 

Carlos -

Carlos will have to have surgery soon because the arm he uses for dialysis has developed two aneurisms and could potentially burst. The longer he goes without a new kidney the worse his condition is.
