Raymond was diagnosed with terminal kidney disease and while being able to work for awhile to support his family, a year later he was no longer able to do so. He was unemployed, receiving disability benefits, getting in-home care and undergoing daily dialysis at home. The dialysis machine resulted in higher energy costs and the family had fallen behind with SDGE to the point that they were threatened with disconnection of their power. Our foundation was able to approve a grant to pay the family’s SDGE bill so as to avoid disconnection of service allowing Raymond to continue his desperately needed daily dialysis treatments.
Grant made December 2019
