Unusual Airbnb Review Led To Launch Of An App That’s Saving Thousands Of Lives.

Just when you thought Javier and Alejandra couldn't do more, they did something even better.

They assumed that Hernan might need a transfusion, so they volunteered to donate blood. In the process, they proved him and everyone at the hospital that their generosity knew no bounds.

Ironically, Hernan's experiences had inspired Javier Artigas to revisit an old idea.

You see, Javier, suffers from kidney disease and has to undergo dialysis every week to survive. Once, he had gone to Argentina but was unable to get his dialysis treatment, which nearly killed him. So, he considered creating an app that would link travelers to medical care.

The idea of finding health care with just a click of a button was an interesting concept.

After the medical emergency Hernan had gone through, Javier decided to turn his app, called Connectus, into a reality. But with Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia in front of him, Javier decided to pitch the idea of his app to him and Joe decided to turn that dream into a reality.

The app is now called Connectus Medical and is currently helping over 250,000 people.

Ironically, the app would have never taken off had it not been for the terrifying ordeal that Hernan Casciari had gone through. This makes Javier very happy, because he not only gets to help others through his app, but he and his wife have made a long-lasting friend with Hernan.
