Thank you for helping me pay my utilities

 

Hi my name is Agustine. Kidney Foundation helped
me with my utilities this winter and I am so grateful. Because of low creatine
levels due to kidney failure I get so very cold that I try to keep the house at
least 65 degrees. Because I’m blind (diabetes is what killed my kidneys and my
eyesight) I’ve got to move around to find things, and use my hands instead of
my eyes. When the house is cold, and with my creatine levels so low it became
hard to get around my own house. But we just couldn’t afford to keep the house
warm, it was too expensive, and we also needed to pay for my meds. My husband
was understanding, but it was hard. When I mentioned this at dialysis in
January when the temps dropped to subzero, my social worker told me there was
help through the Kidney Foundation. We were so grateful after 3 weeks of not
having any heat in the house after Christmas, to be able to turn the thermostat
up to 65 again was a true comfort. Thank you so much for this help. We hope my
husband will be my kidney donor by next summer–and if that happens I won’t be
so cold all the time! Thank you, thank you for helping make our lives a little
easier! Sincerely, Augusine and Val.
