Help Raise Money For My Sick Mother

Hello,
My name is Rolyn Williams and I am here with my uncle, Easton Flemmings. We live in Ottawa, Ontario and we are seeking help on behalf of my mother Merlyn Grant. She resides in Jamaica. She is 56 years old and was recently diagnosed with a type of renal failure known as Parenchymal disease. Her right kidney measures at 6.6cm and her left at 7.2cm. Presently her kidneys are only functioning between 2-4%.

There are only three government funded dialysis machines on the entire island of Jamaica. It also happens to be that Jamaica has one of the highest rates of kidney failure in the world. As a result, the waiting list for the publicly funded dialysis machines is extremely long, with over a minimum of 300 people ahead of her at any of the government funded sites.

My mother is so ill. She can no longer work or care for herself. I now have to employ an in home care worker to help her with her basic everyday needs. I am her only provider and her only chance at getting her the care she needs. Each visit to a private dialysis clinic costs a $100.00 CDN. Her monthly treatment cost is a minimum of $1,200.00 CDN. That amount does not include the injections, medications and the transportation she needs to get to her dialysis treatment three times per week.

I desperately want to help my mom, but I also have a wife and children to provide for here in Canada. I am pleading for any help that I may be able to get, whether it may be a dialysis machine donated to one of the hospitals on Jamaica, or financial help with her treatment, medications, or any of the other expenses.

Alternatively, one of our relatives residing in Jamaica confirmed that he is generously willing to donate a kidney to my mother if I can pay for all the tests and procedures that are required. Unfortunately, I do not have the extra money at this time.

I am asking you to please, kindly open your heart for me and my mom and donate whatever you can so she can live a long and happy life. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please… and thank you again in advance.

Sincerely,
Rolyn and family
