￼￼Hi, we are trying to raise money for our dad Stephen Otto to have a private Kidney transplant.
He was an energetic dad to 4 children, and enjoying life and work. He was diagnosed with mouth cancer back in 2000. He overcame this and thought life was back on track. Unfortunately he was then diagnosed with diabetes which has in turn caused his kidneys to fail. He found this out rather late and they are now only functioning at 5%. He desperately needs a transplant and all his children are willing to be live donors.
Unfortunately the NHS timeframe and process has not even been started although they know how eager we are. He will shortly start dialysis at home however long term this isn't affective as his kidney function is so low.
As a family we are now trying to raise money to get his kidney transplant privately as feel this would be quicker and in all honesty we're running out of time :(
If anyone could find it in their hearts to donate even the smallest amount we would all be so greatful to you :)
After researching the costs involved in a private transplant after contacting Imperial College London and Bupa, it's approximately £60,000 unfortunately.
I doubt we can raise this much but we can try!
