The family and friends of Rosario Pardo are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against LUPUS. Please show your support.

My sister Rosario will be 37 years old in August 2012 and for the last 23 years she has been suffering with End-stage kidney disease which is the complete or almost complete failure of the kidneys to work or also known as LUPUS.

About 17 years ago, my mom went through the testing process to see if she was a match and thankfully she was. They went ahead with the transplant and mercifully everything went well.

Then in 2005 the transplant stopped working and she was back to dialysis. For the last 7 years she has been going to dialysis 3 days out of the week.

This year, 2012 has been one of the hardest years for her because the graft where she receives dialysis has not been functioning properly. It not functioning properly has caused her numerous infections that have made her fever go all the way up to 105 and in turn excessive hospital visits.

At this point after a number of tests to find out what is causing the infections & high fevers the doctors have decided to remove the graft from her leg and put it through her abdomen.This area is her last resort because she has had grafts on her neck, arms and legs which eventually all stopped working in previous years.

Right now the doctors are waiting for the wounds in her legs to heal before moving forward with the surgery of the placement of the graft into her abdomen.

All funds donated will be used to help her with medical costs and related expensed not covered by insurance.

To my Friends, Family and all other kind hearted people, all your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!!

The Pardo Family would like to thank you all for your outpouring of support and prayers.
