This is Sharyn Soliman-Kabbani. I am writing this request on behalf of my family and my 20 year old cousin, Ahmed El-Tabi. Ahmed was born with one kidney. He led a normal, active life until last year, when an unknown infection attacked his body. He was hospitalized and endured excruciating pain, only to find out weeks later that he was already in the moderate-severe kidney failure stage. Ahmed’s kidney was functioning at 26 percent in May, 2012 and has drastically deteriorated. Sadly, Ahmed's blood type has a 10 year wait list in Canada for transplants. His parents have found a donor in Egypt and will be traveling there with him for this life saving surgery. The surgery will cost them approximately $40,000 and so I am reaching out to all my friends, family and well wishers, in hopes that we can help them give Ahmed a second chance at a healthy life.
I am appealing to you to donate. ANY donation, large or small would help. We all buy fast food, enjoy dinners and a movie... can I ask you to skip one and donate to this wonderful young man's cause. Please spread the word and kindly pass on this information to as many people as possible. Join my cousin's facebook page: “Kidney Ahmed” and tag your friends. The more exposure we get, the faster we can get Ahmed his surgery.
May God reward you all for helping.
