Oscar's Kidney Transplant

Hi everyone! My name is Ana Salgado Dennery. My dad has kidney failure and has been on dialysis for a year and a half now. My sister, karen, has been undergoing testing over the past year to see if she could donate a kidney to him. Luckily, we found out just a few days ago that she is a match, and they will both be having transplant surgery on nov 14th. My dads health insurance covers most of the cost for the procedures, but there is an out of pocket cost for some of the anti rejection medication that he needs to take immediately after surgery. These medicines are very expensive but without them, he can lose the new kidney. My sister works full time as an ICU nurse, has 2 kids, and is the main bread winner of the househole, including both my parents. She will be out of work for at least 6 weeks and unfortunately the temporary disability benefits will not cover all expenses. Between my mother, brother, sister, and myself, we will do as much as we can, but we are asking for your help. Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated❤ ¡Hola a todos! Mi nombre es Ana Salgado Dennery y yo creé esto para ayudar a mi padre con los costos médicos en los que incurrirá debido a su trasplante de riñón. Ha estado en diálisis durante un año y medio. Después de muchos examenes, mi hermana Karen descubrió la semana pasada que es compatible y que va a donar uno de sus riñones. La cirugía será el 14 de noviembre de este año. Aunque tiene seguro de salud, no cubre todos los medicamentos contra el rechazo que deberá tomar durante un mínimo de 3 meses después de la cirugía. Cualquier donación ayuda ya que mi madre sola no puede pagar todos los medicamentos. Tambien ayuda a mi hermana a pagar los bills ya que ella tiene que dejar de trabajar por dos meses. Por supuesto que yo, al igual que mis otros hermanos, ayudaremos, pero no podemos hacer mucho. Gracias a todos y que Dios los bendiga!
