BENEFIT FOR MATTHEW

BENEFIT FOR MATTHEW

IN JULY 2011, I WAS TAKEN BY AMBULANCE TO THE HOSPITAL WITH AN UNKNOWN SICKNESS. AFTER SEVERAL TESTS, THE DIAGNOSIS WAS KIDNEY FAILURE. A CATHETER WAS PLACED IN MY NECK BECAUSE I NEEDED EMERGENCY DIALYSIS. A FEW DAYS LATER, A CATHETER WAS PLACED IN MY CHEST & THE CATHETER THAT WA IN MY NECK WAS REMOVED. AT FIRST, I WAS ONLY GOING TO BE ON DIALYSIS FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS TO HELP RESTART MY KIDNEYS. AFTER 6 MONTHS, I FOUND OUT THAT I WOULD HAVE TO BE ON DIALYSIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE OR UNTIL I COULD RECEIVE A TRANSPLANT. WITHIN DAYS, MY BROTHER CONRAD & MY COUSIN DANIEL OFFERED TO GIVE ONE OF THEIR KIDNEYS. CONRAD TOOK THE TESTS FIRST TO SEE IF HE COULD GIVE ME HIS KIDNEY. WE BOTH FOUND OUT THAT WE WERE A PERFECT MATCH. THE TEST RESULTS WERE SO PERFECT, IT WAS JUST LIKE WE WERE TWINS. NOW THAT WE HAVE THIS AWESOME NEWS, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. I WILL BE GETTING THE TRANSPLANT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO MEDICAL CENTER & I NEED YOUR HELP TO GET MY BROTHER & I THERE FOR THIS TRANSPLANT.
