Navigating Kidney Disease: A Journey of Helping Others Through Transplants

El Paso man, Jose “Joe” Granados, is organizing a fundraiser to assist with the costs of his kidney transplant. Granados has been battling Polycystic Kidney Disease, a genetic disorder that causes fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys, which runs in his family. The impact of COVID-19 worsened his condition, as his kidney function dropped to 6 percent. Determined not to let his illness define him, Granados is seeking alternative treatments, including a kidney transplant, and remains positive despite the mental and financial toll it has taken on him.

Granados, who has been undergoing dialysis five days a week, is grateful for the support of his family and the new treatment he has received. He is now on the road to recovery and aims to inspire others facing similar challenges. Granados acknowledges the difficult moments but remains hopeful, stating that he will continue to pursue a kidney transplant and believes that with faith, everything will be okay. He looks forward to returning to work and supporting his family once he receives a kidney transplant.

Granados’s story sheds light on the physical, emotional, and financial hardships faced by individuals battling chronic kidney diseases. His determination to overcome adversity and maintain a positive outlook serves as a source of inspiration for others in similar situations. The fundraiser organized by Granados will not only alleviate the financial burden but also raise awareness about the importance of organ donation and provide hope to those awaiting life-saving transplants.
