    Default Issa Trust Foundation - Child In Need

    Dear Friends,

    Many of you continue to ask "how can we help" children in Jamaica, the country you have come to love! Dr. Miller, a Pediatric Nephrologist in Jamaica sent us an email regarding a little boy with determination & fight to live!

    David is six years old and has been on dialysis since he was three years old. He is the youngest child on hemodialysis and receives treatment three times a week. His child-size dialysis supplies have to be specially imported to Jamaica. By mid-December 2013, his supplies will be completely exhausted and without them he will not survive.

    If anyone has connections to donate F4 dialyzers, pediatric lines and fistula needles please contact Diane.Pollard@issatrustfoundation.com.


    (The Issa Trust Foundation was established in 2005 by Couples Resorts as a nonprofit organization)
    Thank you!

    Diane, I have no access to the supplies needed for this little boy but I would be very willing to make a cash donation for some to be purchased. Thanks for your work there and I hope he gets what he needs.

    Posted on FB as well. I have a friend who works at CHOP, and has worked with the Issa Trust Foundation before. Hopefully they can help this child.

    What does F4 dialyzers, pediatric lines and fistula needles cost? It's not like we can find them at Wal-Mart. How can we donate to this cause? I posted it on every dialysis and kidney transplant site I could find on facebook. I hope other are doing the same. To bad there isn't a Hospital like St Jude for children dialysis.

    I have posted on Facebook in hopes that friends in the medical profession will know where to get these supplies.
