Husband's Kidney Transplant

Husband is a Software Developer. He is a father of 3 beautiful kids. The eldest is an inquisitive 4-yr old who talks non-stop and is a great big sister to her 2 siblings. The 2nd child is a girly 2-yr old who loves anything yellow and pink and loves to follow her elder sister around. The youngest is a 5-month old baby boy who, according to his big sisters, is the cutest thing ever.

My husband is a great dad to our kids. He’s in charge of taking care of our kids when I’m busy with work or when I’m already sleepy since I sleep at daytime. As parents, we always make time for our kids despite our busy schedule. We love weekends since we get to spend most of our time with our family.

My husband loves soccer and gets to play with his team every Saturday or Sunday afternoon. But since the diagnosis, he has not been able to play again.

Early June, he was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5. Doctors recommend that he gets a kidney transplant this year since he is still very young so he can still enjoy life. 

I want my kids to remember growing up without their father being sick all the time. I am hoping and praying you will help us raise funds for the kidney transplant.

Why this picture? I uploaded this privately on my Facebook account while my husband was confined in the hospital. Our kids miss their Daddy so I took this photo and showed it to our kids.
