Hello, my name is Jeremiah Manlopig and I am one of the Mentors with the ReMend Mentoring Program.
Kidney Patient Experience:
I’m an in center HEMO Dialysis patient of two years. My friends say to me “geez Jeremiah I would never know that you are on dialysis unless you told me”. I still maintain my activity which includes fishing up to 3 days on a Sportfishing Boats, Skateboarding, Running and Dancing. I love to fish, it’s my passion to be out on the water viewing what mother nature has to offer. There have been several times people say “you’re on dialysis and you’re out here?” of course I chuckle with “yes I am” with a proud big smile. Having a wonderful support group within my family and friends keeps me going.
I am always willing to help other ESRD patients as well as their family and friends by sharing information and what I’ve experienced and to give them word’s of encouragement to maintain HOPE that one day we may be treated with a Kidney.
I live in Chula Vista; I am available to mentor anyone who needs me.
