Family and friends of Sheila Gavilan are raising money to help her for her kidney transplant. please show your support!

Last june of 2012, we found out my mother has been diagnosed with kidney failure. She has high blood pressure and it affected her kidney pretty bad. We did not find out about it until last month, right now she is in the philippines trying to recover and taking her medicines and watching her blood pressure. as of right now we really need all the help we can get for her kidney transplant, it will cost 800,000 pesos and when converted into dollars it will cost about $20,000.

My mom has always been there for me. i don't know what else i would do if i loose her. my brother and i have been far away from her since we were kids because she is always over seas working to support us since my father left us and started a new family. when i was 12 my father took us from my mom and brought us to united states, after 8 years we have been far away from her. we haven't spent real time with her since she was always gone and working for me and my brother. Now that she is sick and needs to recover, i think it's my time to give back to her and give her all the love and support that she needs; the only thing is that i am a thousand miles away from her and i feel so helpless. that is why i am here asking for help for her medical expenses, so we can get her transplant started and so she can live the normal life, and i hope to get her here in united states so we can all finally be all together as a family.

Thank you all for your support and your donations. My family appreciates all the help that we get.
