Kidney Transplant Fund
Our wonderful CNA and friend, Elena, has recently been diagnosed with end stage renal failure. Recently, Elena was place on the kidney transplant list for OHSU and is waiting any day for her new kidney. In the mean time, Elena has been undergoing dialysis treatments she administers to herself at home and has been back and forth to doctor appointments at OHSU. I'm asking for help in supporting this amazing woman who has provided so much wonderful care for patients in similar circumstances to her own. Elena is truly an asset to our workplace and our community. When not working at the hospital, she can be found doting on her three grandchildren who mean the world to her. Since Elena has given so much to our community, it's time we show her our support. Any amount of donation would be tremendous help for the incoming costs of medical bills and transportation bills. Please help us in showing our support for this bella diosa!
Well, it finally happened...Miss Elena was taken to OHSU on February 25th where they were able to find her a donor and had a smashing success of transplanting her a new kidney!!! It’s a truly wonderful blessing for such a miraculous woman. The surgery went as well as could be expected and within the next few days the doctors finally cleared her to be able to go home. Elena will still need a while to recover and adjust to her new medication regime. We’re hoping that this loving community of family and friends will continue to show their support for Elena during her recovery process. Whether it’s donating money towards bills and other expenses or offering assistance with chores, groceries, and meals; Elena deserves to be taken care of, just as much as she’s taken care of some of us and all the patients she’s ever cared for.
