Lifeline For Jeremy

Lifeline Foundation Support Team, Inc is a non-stock, non-profit organization
made up of doctors, nurses, dentists, educators, musicians, engineers,
counsellors, graphic artists and writers who are all friends living in the city of
Manila, dedicated to the relief of the oppressed and the empowering of the
victim-minded.
We began with a suicide prevention hot-line in 2003, and within the same year
started giving free medical, dental assistance, along with free food and
groceries, clothes and blankets to several Mangyan tribes of Mindoro. We
began to, as Filipinos, sense a greater call to a global responsibility to the
human need, and we were proud to send a mission last December to war-torn
Rwanda in Africa. Third world helping third world, proving we have a lot to
give.
To date, we are thankful and grateful to have been given the opportunities to
help, and yet we are tremendously dissatisfied, for there is much more we
could do, and that we will do.
We’d like to bring your attention to one area where you can help as well.
One of the thrusts of Lifeline Foundation Support Team, Inc is
LiFELiNE /MEDiCAL. Each month we feature a surgery that we provide for
someone who is unable to do so on their own. In partnership with several of
the country’s finest surgeons who selflessly donate their skills, LifeLine Medical
pays for all the medicines needed and the hospitalization costs. In the past
we’ve sponsored cataract removal operations and other eye operation
referrals.
Recently we met a young man named Jeremy Macalalag, a 36 year-old man
from San Pedro, Laguna who got diagnosed with end-stage renal disease in
January 2005. Before he found out that he was sick, he was in perfect health.
He was working at a call center in Alabang where he was earning about
Php16,000 a month. He and his wife, Joan, have two girls, Jemyca (5 years
old) and Janna (2 years old). Joan is an x-ray technician at Healthway Clinic in
Alabang.
Shortly after he got diagnosed, Jeremy had to stop working because he needs
to have kidney dialysis at least twice a week. The cost for each session is
Php4,550. He has been having dialysis for almost a year now with the financial
help of his parents, co-workers, and relatives. He is very thankful for having
people in his life who have been supportive, but needless to say, the Macalalag
family has become financially hard up.
According to his doctors, Jeremy needs to undergo a kidney transplant as soon
as possible. Jeremy’s condition is congenital, and originally only one of his
kidneys contracted the disease. But because of complications, the other one
got affected as well. They have found a very likely donor in his sister, who
needs to undergo tissue typing to see if her kidney matches Jeremy’s. To
undergo this process involves money. They cannot do it on their own. They
need our help to raise Php1,000,000 for the surgical procedures and
medicines.

This is where you come in. As time is of the essence, we have started
fundraising for Jeremy Macalalag. Let’s give this deserving young man, his
wife and their daughters, a fair shot at a normal life.
We thank you, and we know that as much as we can thank you, you yourself
will experience the satisfaction that comes when you give to the truly
deserving.
You can email us through our website, call or fax us at 772-0429 and tell us
how you would like to contribute to this cause. Donations can be made to
LiFELiNE FOUNDATiON iNC either sent to our head office or to P.O. Box 270
Ayala Alabang Post Office Muntinglupa City Metro Manila, Philippines 1799.
