I am writing for my brother in law who is in the Philippines and has just about died with end stage renal disease. He just started dialysis but my problem is that none of his family or friends have any money and at the moment I am paying for it. My savings will run out quick paying for dialysis twice a week and for his medication. I have been searching for help for him, from companies, organizations, government, charities but have found no financial help for him. Th Philippine government does not help their people like the U.S. does. I asked my wife what would the hospital or government do if he cannot afford dialysis, and she told me they will just let him die. He is only 29 yrs old. I am asking anyone for any kind of information of where to get help for him, very soon my help with finances will be ending. I will do anything to help him but it is hard from the states, and for him being in a country that does not offer help, at least openly to its people. I have been also looking into home dialysis for him but I cannot afford a $14000 machine and keep up with his medicine bills and such. If anyone knows help for a machine or even a place to get good used machines there help will be appreciated. I wish everyone the best and luck in their endeavor. Hugs to you all my prayers are with you.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
