TO HELP PEOPLE WITH KIDNEY FAILURE TO HAVE A MACHINE FOR DIALYSIS IN THE COMFORT THERE OWN HOME WHILST ASLEEP IN THERE OWN BED, AND NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL AND SPEND HALF A DAY ON A MACHINE IN HOSPITAL FOR A THREE HOUR SESSION 3 TIMES A WEEK

HI MY NAME IS MICHAEL, I WAS BORN WITH DOWNS SYNDROME I LOVE FOOTBALL, PLAYING POOL DANCING KARAOKE MEETING PEOPLE AND MAKING FRIENDS. I WORK FOR TESCO AS A CUSTOMER ASSITANT, I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR TESCO FOR 11 YEARS ,I HAVE LOTS OF NICE FRIENDS AT TESCO AND I LOVE MY JOB, I MEET LOTS OF NICE PEOPLE SHOPPING, AND I LIKE HELPING PEOPLE.

IN NOVEMBER 2013 MY DOCTOR SAID THERE WAS SOMTHING WRONG WITH MY KIDNEY'S, AND IN JANUARY 2014 I WAS DIAGNOSED BY A CONSULANT NEUROLOGIST AT JAMES COOK UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL AS HAVING KIDNEY FAILURE.

I HAD TO GO ON TO A RENAL DIET THAT MEANS ALL MY FAVOURITE FOODS I COULDNT EAT AND I LOVE MY FOOD, I FELT TIRED A LOT OF THE TIME AND I HAD TO HAVE TIME OFF WORK, I MISS WORK AND ALL MY FRIENDS AT WORK AND CARNT WAIT TO GET BETTER SO I CAN GO BACK TO WORK.

ON THE 16th APRIL 2015 I HAD AN OPERATION TO FIT A TENCKHOFF CATHETER THIS IS TO ALLOW ME TO HAVE DIALYSIS ON A DIALYSIS MACHINE, BUT THE TUBE INSIDE MY BODY MOVED UP INTO MY CHEST AND I COULDNT HAVE THE DIALYSIS.

I HAVE TO VISIT THE HOSPITAL MANY TIMES BUT ON THE 24th OF JULY 2015 I HAD TO HAVE A FURTHER OPERATION TO REFIT THE CATHETER, THIS OPERATION WAS SUCCESSFUL, AND I HAVE STARTED MY DIALYSIS.

I WOULD LIKE EVERYBODY TO HELP ME TO RAISE MONEY TO BUY THESE KIDNEY MACHINES FOR OTHER PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO NEED THEM, I WILL EVENTUALLY GET ONE AT HOME, WHICH WILL LET ME HAVE MY DIALYSIS WHILE ASLEEP AT HOME.  THEN I WILL NOT HAVE TO VISIT HOSPITAL THREE TIMES A WEEK FOR 3 HOURS ON A MACHINE.

THESE MACHINES ARE VERY EXPENSIVE IT WOULD BE NICE TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A FEW, BUT THERE COST AROUND £10,000 EACH AND THATS A LOT SO IF WE COULD BUY ONE THAT WOULD BE A BIG HELP.

PLEASE DONATE NO MATER HOW LITTLE ( EVERY PENNY HELPS )

THANKYOU.
