Tiara's Life Support

$9,348 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 120 people in 1 month
Two weeks ago my beloved Fiancee' Tiara was admitted to the hospital in Indonesia for Kidney failure, an enlarged heart, and dangerously high blood pressure. As some of you are aware the level of medical care is not up to expectations in that part of the world. She has been to four hospitals in the last week and we're planning to take her to Jakarta to a better hospital and better specialists this week. However; her condition has deteriorated to the point that she cannot move under own power and in all likelihood cannot travel by airplane to Jakarta this week if she doesn't get prompt emergency care now. Indonesian hospitals require payment for care prior to being discharged, even if you have insurance. To date her care has been extremely expensive and there are no available funds left to pay for further diagnoses and treatments.

We're anticipating that the costs associated with dialysis this week and perhaps a kidney transplant will be more than we can burden in a very short time. Her condition is grave and unfortunately the only way to get medical help is to pay for it at the time of treatment and discharge.

As many of you have followed us for years, you know that are relationship is special and that she is one of the kindest and most giving people that you can meet. Tragedy has befallen her and her situation is critical. 

Please, if there is anyway that you can help and save my future bride, I would be very grateful. Any amount would help to defer costs associated with treatments immediately. If you want more details or would prefer an alternative payment plan before you commit then you are welcome to private message or call me and I will be more than willing discuss. 

Thank you in advance for your understanding and any contributions.

ALCON,

SITREP: Tiara is stable. I will be suspending this account because for now we have been able to cover most medical costs and we feel we can manage the rest as it presents itself. Unfortunately she will need long-term management of her condition that will most likely deteriorate with age. Moreover, we are waiting for the results of a cancer condition and one other problem that will require invasive surgery. The situation is fluid but we have a plan to move forward and expect a positive outcome.

Thanks again to everyone that donated and wished us well. I hope to repay the favor and pay it forward.

ALCON,
SITREP:
After 9 Doctors at 7 hospitals between Bali and Jakarta, we can safely conclude that Tiara is in late stage four Kidney failure and on the cusp of stage five, dialysis, and probably a kidney transplant.
This is only one of four ailments and diseases that she has. Two of the other three conditions may be tied to the kidney problem and the fourth is unrelated but also very serious if not checked. At this point we are knocking down the near targets first and sequentially addressing the other issues.
Tiara is on her feet and spirits are up; though she knows that she is still deep in the woods. But we are fighters and its not over until its over. Right now we are leveraging everything at our disposal and feel like we can get through this together and with everyone's help and support.
Thanks again to everyone for the well wishes and donations. Your benevolence and contributions are noted and we hope to repay everyone some day; and for sure we will pay it forward to the next person that needs help.

ALCON,

SITREP: We are now back in Bali and completed first of two Doctors appointments today. Tiara is up and about; and she is feeling more confident about the future. At this point she has four major systems pathologies that may or may not be interrelated. All will require separate management. We are addressing each issue by priority and hopefully get her health as quickly as possible. Tomorrow we will consult with a Dietician to understand what she can and cannot eat. We know she cannot have any animal products, salt, and potassium rich food. That pretty much wipes out 90% of her normal diet. By Friday she will take another series of tests to assess her status and determine what protocols t follow.

Lastly, we just learned today that her insurance will not cover her medical costs or reimburse us for the costs so far because there is a clause that says her policy will be effective only after 6 June. We have doled outa small fortune for emergency medical care, travel costs to six hospitals between Bali and Jakarta, and medicines. If all goes as planned, I will have her in the USA under my medical insurance coverage in the next 60 days or less. The US Consulate has not been too cooperative, and at times less than professional in their handling of our case.

ALCON,

First thanks for everyone’s support and generous donations. I know that some of you had to dig deep and it’s not always easy. We all have our trying times, ups and downs, moments of prosperity and destitute.

We have been overcome with several unforeseen issues that have knocked us on our ass. We are in a fight to save Tiara’s life first. We will prevail and win each battle until we’re back on top. As I always say - “it’s not a problem, it’s a challenge. Hold my hat and jacket!”

Yesterday we were unable to get Tiara to the hospital because of the post election riots on the streets of Jakarta. Roads were closed, police clashed with rioters, hospitals had limited operations, and doctors wouldn’t come to work. Today we found another hospital with a nephrologist and will meet him soon. This afternoon we have two more appointments at another hospital with specialists.

At this point we know she is in kidney failure. She has lost an incredible amount of weight. What we don’t know is the prognosis and subsequent care that she will need. Everyday is stressful until we have answers and positive movement. We will keep you updated as we know more.

Thank you!

Dale and Tiara
