Urgent Kidney transplant needed for Dil-E-Nadan's Rennie Ramnarine

Rennie Ramnarine of the chutney crossover band Dil-E-Nadan has been diagnosed with Renal Failure and is in urgent need of a kidney transplant.

The family took to social media on Tuesday night where they made the announcement and the plea for a kidney.

Ramnarine is currently undergoing dialysis at the Acropolis Medical Centre in San Fernando.

Ramnarine is the brother of Raymond and Richard.

"Patients with end-stage renal failure need some form of dialysis therapy as a bridge while they wait for a kidney transplant.

A Kidney Transplant is one of the most common organ transplant surgeries performed today.

In this surgery, kidneys that aren’t working well are replaced by a kidney from a donor.

This surgery is a lifesaving choice for thousands of patients with end-stage kidney disease (kidney renal failure), " the statement read.

"Rennie is in urgent need of a Kidney Transplant within the next six months to give him a second chance in life, " it added.

The family assured that they will continue to give updates on his progress "as he remains positive that he will be blessed with a donor."

Anyone willing to help can send a WhatsApp message to 1868 798 1576 or 1868 485 9300.
