Hector’s doble transplants-Heart & kidney

Hello! My name is María Vélez, my son Ettienne Muñiz and I started this fundraiser for My husband Hector Andrades who was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) six years ago. This condition started affecting his heart and significantly worsened after contracting COVID-19 last year. He now suffers with cardiac insufficiency, more commonly known as heart failure. Dealing with these two conditions and their complications has not been easy on him, despite fighting for his life like a warrior from day 1. Since early this year, we have been working at a distance with a group of specialists in organ transplants from Mayo Clinic Jacksonville Florida regarding a simultaneous double transplant of heart and kidney. We are nearing his moment to transfer to Florida to continue treatment and eventually move on to his surgical procedures. This incurs exorbitant expenses for which we humbly call on your generosity. We kindly ask for your help to raise money for his transplants. My husband is an incredible, lively and kind man. His only wish is to be in good health and be able to engage in activities his conditions no longer allow him to do. God will surely bless you. We will be eternally grateful for any help you give us. Whether it be financially or simply sharing his story!

Hola mi nombre es Maria Vélez, mi hijo Ettienne Muñiz y yo comenzamos esta recaudación para  mi esposo Héctor Andrades quien fue diagnosticado con insuficiencia renal en estado terminal  hace 6 años esta condición le comenzó afectar su corazón y se agravó cuando se contrajo COVID-19 el pasado año ahora mi esposo padece de insuficiencia cardiaca. Lidiar con estas dos enfermedades y sus complicaciones no ha sido fácil para el a pesar de estar batallando por su vida como un gran guerrero desde el primer día. Desde principios de año hemos estado trabajando a distancia con un grupo de médicos especialistas en transplante de órganos en Mayo Clinic Jacksonville Florida,para un doble transplante simultáneo de corazón y riñón. Es momento de su traslado a  Florida para continuar tratamiento y eventualmente su doble transplante. Esto incurre en gastos exorbitantes por lo que hacemos un llamado a su generosidad para que nos ayuden a recaudar el dinero que necesitamos para sus transplantes. Mi esposo es un gran hombre y su único anhelo es gozar de buena salud y poder llevar a cabo actividades que hoy su condición no le permiten realizar. Dios le bendecirá y nosotros les estaremos eternamente agradecidos por la ayuda que nos puedan brindar, ya sea monetaria o compartiendo nuestra historia.
