Kidney Foundation Pub Crawl [28]

Pub_1 Just where exactly are your kidneys and what on earth do they do?  And how can drinking beer help raise money to help the little guys?

Join us on a hot Thursday night in downtown Burlington for the first annual Kidney Foundation Pub Crawl where these questions and more will be answered while raising money for a good cause and consuming much Shipyard Beer.

Proceeds benefit the National Kidney Foundation of Maine and the people in New England suffering from kidney related illnesses. 

Pub_10 More than 20 million Americans suffer from diseases of the kidney and urinary tract. Nearly 50,000 die each year from these diseases. 
Nearly 350,000 Americans suffer from chronic kidney failure. Each year, another 75,000 join them - an annual growth of more than 7%  Kidney disease is no respecter of age. It affects people of all ages and all walks of life.

We crawled to
Nectar's, Ake's Place, Red Square, Halvorson's, Manhattan Pizza & Pub, What Ale's You, Church St Tavern, and Ruben James.  At each stop, more money was added to the jugs and more Shipyard was enjoyed.

Featured in the vlog but not properly titled are some 7D staff such as Art Director, Rev Diane Sullivan, photographer Matthew Thorsen and Director of Digital Development, Bob Kilpatrick.  Also, it should be noted that the sponsors of the event were 7 Days, MP 103 and Farrell Distributing with ShipYard and the National Kidney Foundation of Maine.  We love kidneys!

PS Are you an organ donor?  17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant.  What are you waiting for?!

On behalf of everyone at MP103 - Thank you for the great work you did to help make this event a success. Go Kidneys!

Eva...

It's a shame that the Kidney Foundation Pub Crawl wasn't occuring when we were in Burlington as our monetary particapation would have cured Kidney disease.

Plus we are firm believers that the liver is a harden criminal and therefore must be punished!

PS Is vlogging whilst under the influence wise?

Dear Sir/madaam,

Warm greetings!

My name is Joselito E. Abaloyan, 42 years old, citizen of the Philippines, a permanent employee of the Department of Agrarian Reform Region VIII and presently residing at Cabanero Subd., Zone 3, Brgy. Utap, Tacloban City, Leyte.

I took the courage to approach your good office because of the grave and serious medical condition of my youngest son, Mark Kin N. Abaloyan, 14 years old. Mark Kin was diagnosed last July 10, 2006 by Doctors of the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) to be suffering from a kidney disease called Nephrotic Syndrome, Acute, Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. He has just undergone six session of once a month cyclo pulsing at NKTI, sad to say it was stop by the attending physician because of no reaction to that Cyclo Pulsing. It was shifted to Methol Pulsing once a day for 3 consecutive days for 2 sessions, again no changes of result in the laboratory examination, specifically; in his creatinine, potassium, calcium, & others. It has been one year since his continue medication with my child’s strong will of fighting his illness. However, as of the present findings he is recommended to undergo an immediate Kidney Transplant because of his medical condition which is getting worse. Please find attached a copy of the laboratory examination for your perusal.

This condition has brought emotional and financial stress to my family, since I am the only sole breadwinner, and my wife is psychologically incapacitated to work and cannot give even a moral support and care to my ill child. I also have two other sons who are still studying in public high school. My meager salary (S.G.15) cannot sustain our needs both for household needs and for my son's hospitalization and medications. The dialysis and kidney transplant of my poor child, which in common knowledge is really very expensive, will be financially impossible for us.

In view hereof, I am humbly asking for your help in any way leading to financially assist in dialysis and possible kidney transplant of Mark Kin. Your kind help and favor will never be forgotten by our family.

I am hoping for your kind consideration and response on this matter. Thank you and more power.


Very respectfully yours,

JOSELITO E. ABALOYAN
