Move Dialysis from neck to arm

33466828_1538605242404556_r.jpegOrlando Moya woke up one day and his kidneys stopped working.  The first morning, he was feeling weak and disoriented.  As his health did not improve, multiple exams were made until the results showed a lack of kidney function.

The solution for Orlando is to be on Dialysis.  He is taken from the small town of San Manuel Cortez in Honduras, to San Pedro Sula, at a city hospital 3 times a week.  The Dialysis treatment is currently being applied through his neck.    The treatment during each session is for 4 hours.

Orlando needs the funds as soon as possible.  There is a high risk of infection due to the wound around the neck area.  This area makes it harder to maintain  the wound area clean, since the weather in Honduras is very humid.  His current residence lacks an air conditioner system.

The funds raised will help pay for the procedure to move the Dialysis valve from the neck area to the arm.  This will make it easier to clean and keep the area from getting infected. 
The funds will also help with transportation costs.

Finally, I would like to ask you to pray for Orlando.
