Help Yogita Stand Up Again

Yogita Manoj Kamath is a 25-year-old woman who is full of life and enthusiasm and has a very positive and energetic approach towards life.

Few days ago, on 31st March 2017 to be precise, she felt sudden numbness in her body. Her legs were getting weakened and she was losing strength rapidly. She was already feeling weak while leaving her workplace in the evening and hence a colleague of hers brought her home in an autorickshaw.

On the morning of 1st April, the numbness had spread to major part of her body and hence was urgently rushed by her family members to Ramakrishna Mission Hospital, Mumbai. She underwent treatment there and was later diagnosed to have fallen victim to GBS (Guillain-Barré Syndrome) virus. This is classified as rarest of the rare disease and she herself is one such rare case of this disease in the entire country. More details of this disease are on this link:

 As her body was getting weak rapidly, the hospital advised that she be transferred to a larger hospital with more advanced technologies and be placed under the supervision of a neurosurgeon. Therefore, on 4th April, she was transferred to S.L. Raheja Hospital, Mumbai. Due to her serious condition, she was placed on ventilator on 7th April and is currently on the same at the time of writing this article. At the time of placing her on ventilator, the doctor had mentioned very clearly that she had almost only 48 hours left with her.

However, due to her strong will to survive, she proved wrong the doctor’s estimation of 48 hours and is currently fighting all odds to regain lost movement of her body. Currently her body has lost all movement below the neck. The condition remains same till date with she yet to regain movement in her body under the neck part.

Her husband, Manoj Kamath, is now fighting a lone battle to make her regain normalcy against all odds. All he wants is to have his wife stand in front of him as before. Their financial condition is very ordinary and the costs billed till now are already to the tune of ~15lakhs. This amount is expected to grow to ~40lakhs (please check certificates attached). They have no alternate sources to gain this huge amount.

Therefore, we appeal to help us raise this amount so that there are no hindrances in her treatment and her body movements gain normalcy soon.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support that you have shown towards Yogita. She has been discharged from the hospital and is doing better now.

She has resumed her normal life and has started going back to work. She faced little difficulties to do day to day activities like climbing stairs as she was bedridden for a long time. Her strong will to overcome hurdles and your blessings helped her to recover faster. Now she has no difficulties with anything.

Thank you all once again. Your support and blessings helped us in the time we needed it the most.

Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

We have some good news to share with you. Yogita is recovering slowly and steadily. She can talk now. She is able to stand as well but not for long durations. Physiotherapy sessions are being undertaken so that the muscles can be strengthened. She will have to take one small step at a time and she will be able to walk again. We will keep you posted.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We would not have been able to save Yogita if not for all your support and blessings. Please do pray for her speedy recovery.

Team Milaap.
