Family and friends come together to provide financial and motivational support to Ana Flores in her fight to regain her kidney function.

Please support Ana Flores as she faces the medical fight of her life without health insurance.
Ana Flores, dedicated mother of three college age children, enjoyed an active and very healthy life until the late spring of 2011 when her blood pressure skyrocketed. As her doctor attempted to treat the symtom and she did not respond, additional physicians were consulted with the end result being kidney failure.
Within two weeks time, Ana's kidney function had dropped to fifteen percent. Although Ana's condition continued to puzzle her physicians, she left for Mexico, while she could still travel, where all of her family members reside except for her one sister and immediate family here in the US. Continuing with tests and consultation with US physicians, Ana's condition required immediate dialysis. It was determined that her immune system had attacked her kidneys and thoroughly compromised their function. She began a six month course of an immune suppressing drug regimen, with hopes for a positive result in allowing a kidney transplant or a possible regeneration of her kidney function. The threat of infection looms large in that her dialysis port is in her juglar. Her children and spouse remain in the US, struggling on without her. Ana has worked for a Century 21 real estate franchise in the property management department displaying an incredible loyalty and dedication for over fifteen years where her coworkers and supervisor all adore her and wish for her rapid recovery and return. Ana's medical costs are staggering and the future treatments remain cloudy as her physicians await her response to the current plan. She remains the positive and inspiring individual that she has always been, encouraging all to not think of her as an ill person but instead as a recovering one. Those wishing to contribute to her inspirational recovery can make a donation to this site which will let Ana know she is very remembered, cherished and encouraged to continue to fight on towards her full recovery without fear of financial devastation.
