BACOLOD CITY––A 32-year-old nun needs financial help as she needs to undergo an urgent kidney transplant.

Sr. Psyche Esclamada Examen, a member of the Servants of Mary congregation who takes care of the poor and the sick in Barangay Handumanan in this city, was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease four years ago.

“My two kidneys are smaller than the normal size and are unable to function properly as time passes,” she said.

She is taking oral medications to slow down the deterioration of her kidneys and undergoes regular laboratory tests and consultations with her doctor.

“Only 17 percent of my kidneys were working during my latest visit to my nephrologist who advised me to undergo dialysis or have a kidney transplant,” Examen said.

She wants to have a kidney transplant, but it will be too expensive for the Servants of Mary to shoulder the expenses.

“I am pleading to generous hearts to help me with the finances needed for a kidney transplant at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute that I am praying will happen soon,” she said.

“I am happy serving the poor who are sick and want to continue to do so, but I cannot do this because I am also sick. There are times I am not feeling well, but I know God is with me,” she added.

Examen can be reached at her email address – [email protected] or 09162570922.

Those who wish to help her can also call Mother Carmen Piña at 09154564111, Sr. Lourdes Nieto at 09954385442, and Token Lizares at 09999483786.

Donations can be deposited in the RCBC account of the Local Superior of Siervas de Maria. The number is 1421-176899, Lizares said.
