Rodrigo's health

Hi, I'm Edna Korn and this is  my nephew and godson Rodrigo, a fun, humble and beautiful person. On June 6th, his life took a turn when he was diagnosed with a kidney disease that progressed so quickly we didn't have time to act. As of today, his kidney only has 10% of function. The disease is known as IGA nephropathy. It has no cure and he will need a kidney transplant. In the meantime, he will need dialysis. Unfortunately, he currently does not have health  insurance and can not apply for it until November of this year. Also, because he's not a permanent resident of this country yet, he would have to pay for dialysis out of pocket until he becomes insured.  We're asking for any donation to help pay for current medical expenses.Thank you, and God bless!

Oi, este é meu sobrinho Rodrigo, uma pessoa amada, honesta e amiga. Dia 6 de junho sua vida mudou, quando ele foi diagnosticado com uma doença de rins que progrediu tão rápida deixando ele com somente 12% de função renal. A doença chamada nefropatia por IGA, não tem cura e levará ele a necessitar futuramente de um transplante. No momento ele irá precisar de hemodiálise. Não sendo residente permanente no país ele não qualifica para o tratamento. Os fundos recebidos irão cubrir a cirurgia para colocar a fistula para receber a hemodiálise assim tbm como alguns tratamentos. Eternamente grata por cada ajuda e por favor lembre-se dele em suas orações. Deus abençoe!
