A desperate cry for help from one of St. Maarten’s own

Got this one on my Hotmail account, seems real enough – if it ain’t, I’m sure one of you will let me know –

HI, MY NAME IS FAUSTO DE CASTRO AND YES, THIS IS REAL. I AM ONLY 32 YEARS OLD, HAVE A LITTLE GIRL, NAOMI WHO IS 3 YRS. OLD I LOVE LIFE AND WOULD REALLY LIKE TO LIVE TO SEE HER GROW UP. AT THE END OF THIS EMAIL YOU WILL FIND ALL OF MY INFO.

IF YOU CAN HELP ME, PLEASE DO SO. JUST CALL OR EMAIL ME.

MY MOTHER IS HELPING ME TO HAVE AND KEEP FAITH, TO KEEP BELIEVING IN HUMANITY AND THAT IT IS NOT OVER, THAT THERE IS A TOMORROW.

I HAVE ACUTE RENAL FAILURE, MEANING MY KIDNEYS DO NOT WORK ANYMORE AND I AM ON DIALYSIS FOR 8 HOURS EVERYDAY. I AM IN DESPERATE NEED OF A KIDNEY TO KEEP ME ALIVE.

A COUPLE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE COME FORWARD TO BE TESTED BUT WERE NOT A MATCH.

MY MOTHER GAVE ME A KIDNEY 4 YRS AGO, BUT IT FAILED DUE TO A VIRUS.
I DO NOT KNOW BUT TODAY I AM GIVING 100% AND ALL I AM ASKING IS THAT MY EMAIL BE FORWARDED.

I AM ASKING FOR ONE MINUTE OF YOUR LIFE TO HELP ME GET BACK MINE.

IT’S EASY, I JUST NEED 3 SMALL FAVORS.

1. FIRST, PLEASE DO NOT DELETE THIS EMAIL, SAVE IT, ASK YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, PASS THE WORD AROUND, MAYBE SOME ONE THAT YOU KNOW CAN HELP ME.

2. IF YOU KNOW SOME ONE THAT IS WILLING TO GIVE A KIDNEY, PLEASE TALK TO ME, ALL I NEED IS ONE. MINE NO LONGER FUNCTION.

3. IF YOU HELP ME IN FORWARDING THIS EMAIL, I HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF REACHING MORE PEOPLE AND WILL HAVE A BETTER CHANGE OF GETTING A DONOR/KIDNEY.

THANK YOU FOR THE TIME YOU HAVE GIVEN ME.

PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL MY MOTHER AT THE FOLLOWING TELEPHONE NUMBERS OR EMAIL ADDRESS.
