More than 100 patients with kidney diseases who are at the mercy of death

More than 100 patients with kidney diseases who are at the mercy of death because hospitals deny them transplants because they do not have documents will hold a funeral procession in memory of their own lives to urge hospitals and politicians to not deny them the right to life for being undocumented. “We will be walking 10 miles with Caskets in memory of our own deaths due to the denial of our kidney transplants” said Jesus Villegas. Father Jose S. Landaverde says it is sinful and immoral that the hospitals and these politicians deny life to these patients who need their transplants because they have no documents and put the money and their political prestige over the lives of other beings “That is against the will of God and a sin”, says Landaverde. We invite the community to join us this Wednesday with our brothers who need transplants to this funerary procession with coffins, from 2940 west of 63 street to Hospital North Western UIC, and Loyola Passing leaving a box with the meaning of a feretory of a person who died from kidney diseases to the UIC hospital, and to the Rush Medical Center. We invite you to participate to the funeral procession to support our brothers and sister with kidney disease at 2940 63 Chicago, Illinois, 60629, at 11:00 a.m. this Wednesday June 12 2019 at 11:00 am. Contact Father Jose S. Landaverde 630-402-5226 2940 West 63 Street,Chicago, Illinois 60629

Warning on Catfishing

Despite warnings from the FTC, a public NFL victim and an MTV reality show the number of catfishing victims increased by 50% in 2018 compared to three years ago.

Catfishing is when someone fakes an online identity to scam victims for money, romance or physical harm. These online relationships can last for months or even years!

SocialCatfish.com — a leading resource to verify online identities — today released a study on The Number of Catfish Victims in Each State using data from the FBI for 2018.

Illinois ranked No. 9 in the country with 433 reported victims. Vermont reported the fewest victims of all 50 states with just 25 cases. 5 Signs You Are Being Catfished:

• If they ask for money: This may sound so obvious, but if the online friend or romantic interest whom you have never met asks you to send money or provide your bank information, you are being catfished.

• If they can’t meet in person: If the person strings you along without meeting in person. They may even eventually agree to a day or time but have an “emergency” that day such as a cancelled flight or a medical issue.

• If they are stationed overseas: If they claim to be stationed overseas or working on an oil as an excuse for not meeting. • If they can’t video chat: If the person refuses to video chat ever.

• If they seem to good to be true: Some people who catfish feel bad about themselves and take on the online persona of a model or successful businessperson and the like.

To avoid becoming a victim, thoroughly fact-check and verify online identities using google and SocialCatfish.com, before meeting in person or providing any information about yourself. Haley Helms RN Public Relations Group Account Executive
