Help us keep a mother alive

Donation protected
Today I created this GoFundMe account in order to help my friend, Rey David Arias, stay with his mother, Albairis Arias, 55, in the Dominican Republic, and pay for her life-saving kidney transplant. She started suffering complications in 2016 and since 2018, she has receiving peritoneal dialysis treatment in her home in hopes that she would regain health and continue living. In March 2020, her doctors concluded: "Chronic renal failure in peritoneal dialysis secondary to diabetic nephropathy and secondary anemia." Her only hope is a kidney transplant, but fortunately, one of her children, Jonathan Santos Arias, 31, is compatible and will be her donor. The family has been devastated financially by this misfortune, and due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it has been even more difficult to cover expenses from previous treatments, depleting all their savings. The government of the Dominican Republic does not pay for kidney transplants and the family has no private health insurance. We are hoping my friend won’t lose his mother because they could not afford a kidney transplant. I empathize for my friend's plight and ask for your help in his stead. Please donate if you are able; if not, please share. Thank you all. God Bless. Español Hoy creé esta cuenta de GoFundMe para ayudar a mi amigo, Rey David Arias, a quedarse con su madre, Albairis Arias, de 55 años, en la República Dominicana, y pagar su trasplante de riñón que podría salvarle la vida. Comenzó a sufrir complicaciones en 2016, y desde 2018, ha recibido tratamiento de diálisis peritoneal en su hogar con la esperanza de que recupere la salud y continúe viviendo. En marzo de 2020, sus médicos concluyeron: "Insuficiencia renal crónica en diálisis peritoneal secundaria a nefropatía diabética y anemia secundaria". Su única esperanza es un trasplante de riñón, pero afortunadamente, uno de sus hijos, Jonathan Santos Arias, de 31 años, es compatible y será su donante. Esta desgracia ha devastado financieramente a la familia, y debido a la actual pandemia de COVID-19, ha sido aún más difícil cubrir los gastos de tratamientos anteriores, agotando todos sus ahorros. El gobierno de la República Dominicana no paga los trasplantes de riñón y la familia no tiene seguro médico privado. Esperamos que mi amigo no pierda a su madre por no poder pagar un trasplante de riñón. Siento empatía por la difícil situación de mi amigo y le pido su ayuda en su lugar. Por favor done si puede; si no, por favor comparta. Gracias a todos. Dios bendiga.
