Hi, our names are Zion and Ronnell Jr (Lewie). We are 4 and 3 years old. We asked Nummie, our grandma, to help us write this letter because our daddy Ronnell needs a new kidney.
In August 2015, daddy had to go to the hospital because he wasn’t feeling well and the doctors told him that his kidneys were failing. After that day everything changed. Daddy has to be on his dialysis machine every day. We all had to move in with Nummie and papa so they could help take care of us. Daddy is no longer able to take us to daycare every morning or make us our favorite breakfast like he used to. After his dialysis, he doesn’t have the energy to play with us as much or lift us up in the air anymore. Our Nummie helps with taking care of us and our dad as much as she can. She is really worried about daddy. Nummie said that we are too young to understand what’s going on. But we know that daddy needs a kidney to be donated to him and that a kidney from a living person is better for him. He still has not found a donor but he is hopeful that he will find a donor soon. In the meantime, his doctor’s appointments and life expenses are wearing on him since he is unable to work full-time.
