On april 15, 2009 I was rushed to the hospital because I wasn’t feeling well for a few days. The only thing I remember is waking up at emergency and watch my sister with and eerie look. Moments later I had a heart attack. Then I woke up on surgery and the doctor said to me (he was a friend from my town) “Silva I’m going to take care of you, sleep” Days later I learned that I was suffering from high blood pressure and my heart give up. The result was my kidneys shut down and I started to have dialisis. From that moment I decided to not give up, after all I was always positive and a good sport. I’m an artist: I paint and draw and live from that money. My whole life I helped and continue to help the youth to play basketball and to stay positive in life. I don’t receive any kind of monetary compensation. Is a communitary effort to give younger people to play and stay in shape. My life is dedicated to the basketball and the community. And between that I always find time to paint and express my passion for art in every single way. I’m on the way to be on the transplant list for kidneys and my goal is to have the money to make it possible. Since I never worked before I don’t have Social Security and the money to do it. So I’m hoping to get help from others and continue to bring joy, happiness, positive, championships and good health to all my younger people from my town. And continue to do art to express a beautiful world to others. You can look me up on facebook and see my work: Alberto Silva. Also you can learn about my life and who I’m on my hometown: Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico and the people I love and respect me from my efforts. And on another note I found love after years alone, so I want to enjoy this new experience to me and be happy. I will be posting some of the photos of my doings. Thanks for your help!!
