"We took him to different hospitals and for the past 1 month, he has had more medicines than food. We did not understand what was happening to him. 2 days back we were told that only a liver transplant can save his life. Now, the day has come, only few hours left and I don't have a penny with me. I'm shivering in fear. I do not know what we did to deserve this." - Ram, Father.
In just a month, he started losing his appetite and threw up everything he ate
Abhishek grew up very healthy and active. He did well in his studies and sports as well. He has won many prizes for running, and story telling competitions. His parents were brimming with pride whenever he comes home with medals and certificates. While they were very hopeful of his future, life took a tragic turn. Unfortunately, just a month back, Abhishek started losing his appetite and he drastically lost weight. A few days later, he was diagnosed with jaundice when his eyes started yellowing.
“Despite taking pills, the yellowness in his eyes didn’t go. We consulted doctors and they just advised us to give him fresh fruits and vegetables. I was extra cautious about his diet ever since he got jaundice. We took him to different doctors, tried different medication, yet the jaundice didn’t go. It was just worsening our son’s health. He was scared to even eat food because every time he eats food, he vomits immediately.” -Ranjana, mother.
His jaundice is getting worse and it can only be stopped with a liver transplant
Poor parents finally found hope in a multi-specialty hospital in Delhi. The doctors ran a few tests and found out that the progressive jaundice has affected his liver because of which his liver has completely damaged. And his damaged liver has affected his brain because of which Abhishek has lost his consciousness. He’s currently on ventilator support and has only few hours left to undergo a liver transplant. His mother Ranjana is a suitable donor for him
but poor parents cannot afford it.
“In just a month, my son’s life has changed drastically. He never had any serious illness before and now he’s at death’s door. We don’t have much time left to save my son. If we delay it further, we’ll lose him forever.” - Ranjana, mother.
Ram has been struggling to arrange money for the transplant but all his efforts are in vainRam is an electrician, having no fixed income to look after family of four including his daughter Sweety (12). He would only get paid whenever there is work. He has spent Rs 1 lakh in just 4 days for his son’s treatment just by borrowing money from his friends and relatives.
But now, with only hours left, arranging Rs 17 lakhs for his son’s transplant is next to impossible for him.
“All my friends and relatives have been very generously supporting me for the past few days. But whatever little amount they’ve given, is not just enough for the transplant. I just want to see my son happy and healthy again. Please help me.” - Ram, father
