Help Ramon make it to his 24th birthday...

My brother Ramon Romo has always had health problems. At birth, being a premature baby, his organs didn't have enough time to develop. Being born in a small city of Jalisco, Mexico the doctors told my mom that my brother would not make it. Our family considered Ramon a "miracle baby". Now 23 years later, Ramon's future is unknown and we need another miracle. Ramon's chronic kidney failure has progress to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) which is fatal without dialysis or a kidney transplant. Dialysis replaces the main function of the kidneys and provides a means of filtering toxins and waste from the blood and is keeping my brother alive. Since he will be needing a kidney transplant, one of my other siblings is going to be the donor as he already underwent many tests that were time consuming and costly. As the oldest child, I left Mexico, when I turned 18, and never returned. I wanted to give myself a better life and in the process to help my family back home in Villa Hidalgo, Jalisco. Now, I'm married to a US citizen and my wife and I are looking to help my brother in any way we can. We have been told that the surgery alone is $30,000. The hospital needs to see that our family has the money before they proceed with the surgery that could be life saving for my brother. Right now, Ramon is on dialysis 3 times a week. We are asking for donations in any amount to help Ramon get a kidney transplant in the near future. We want to accomplish the goal of reaching $30,000 to save his life. No amount is too little and every penny counts. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at CROMO4@live.com or HELPRAMON24@live.com Other ways to help our family is by keeping my brother in your prayers and passing this along to everyone you know. Together we can SAVE A LIFE!!! My family and I would like to continue thanking everyone for their support through this difficult time and may God bless you!!!
