Ahead of surgery, man with kidney failure needs help with dialysis
Christopher Sukha, a 25-year-old man who has kidney failure, has been able to secure a donor for his kidney transplant but still needs help covering the costs of his weekly dialysis treatment.
Sukha told the News Room that he has been able to find a suitable donor – a young woman who lives nearby in his community of Success on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD).
Though he has a kidney donor, he noted that he may not be unable to undergo the necessary kidney transplant until another two months from now. This transplant is a surgical procedure that will place a healthy kidney into his body, effectively helping him to filter and remove waste from his blood by producing urine.
In the meantime, he lamented that he still has to undergo dialysis at least two times a week- on Mondays and Thursdays. This dialysis allows the waste to be removed from his body via a machine but it costs $12,000 per session- a sum he cannot afford since he is unable to work.
To enable him to receive this much-needed dialysis, his wife, mother-in-law and aunt have been trying to support him. But, he said that the cost of the weekly treatment is a challenge for the family.
As such, he is pleading with anyone for assistance in covering his dialysis treatment. Persons willing to assist Christopher can contact him on +592 662 8957 or his wife on +592 691 7708.
