Save Tomson Varghese a freelance writer, needs a liver transplant

I am Antony Konnel from Bangalore making an appeal to save the life of my co-brother Tomson  Varghese.

Tomson  is 52 years old, married & has 2 children. He had been diagnosed with decompensated chronic liver disease about a year ago. He's a teetotaller who doesn't smoke nor consume liquor. His mother died of same ailment about 4 years ago. 4 among the 5 brother's are now diagnosed with this disease but Mr.Tomson  is very critical & needs immediate liver transplant to be saved. (His younger brother Jagan Varghese succumbed to the same disease on 7th of April 2018).  His wife can't afford this costly medical treatment with her meagre income of Rs.8000/= per month.

Tomson  is a freelance writer, writing for local magazines, TV shows etc.,to earn a living. He's been the sole earning member of his family but due to his failing health conditions in the last 1 year his wife Jeraldin Tomson  took up a small time job as a receptionist of a dentist to support the family. His son is a 19 year student of a reputed National institute (NIFT), a seat he secured by a top national rank last year. His daughter is a 10th std.student. The family in the last 1 year has spent almost close to Rs.10 lakhs all funded by friends & relatives but now the doctor's have advised immediate liver transplant to save his life.

Dr.Cyriac Philips, consultant Hepatology of Ernakulam Medical centre hospital, Kochi advised liver transplant & referred him to Aster Medcity hospital, Kochi as the best equipped to carry out the same. He even gave an appeal letter seeking public support to the family to raise Rs.25 lakhs. Dr.Charles Panackel, Consultant Hematology at Aster Medcity has also given an estimate of Rs.22 lakhs & requested for early transplant. The hospital bills for the last 1 week touched Rs.3 lakhs. Mrs.Jeraldin Tomson is donating the liver as we couldn't find a matching external donor & also because the family couldn't afford it too.

Tomson  has been discharged from hospital today (17/04/2018) & instructed to return as soon as the full amount is ready (within 2 to 4 weeks).

Dear Supporters,

This is Antony K S, co-brother of Mr.Tomson Varghese for whom this fund raising was done in the month of April 2018 for a liver transplant. However the liver transplant was postponed initially for lack of funds and subsequently due to improvement in his health condition and also because the doctor's advice to wait for a cadaveric donor.

During the last few months Mr.Tomson has showed vast improvements which he and his family attributes to their faith in God and the prayers of his family & friends. Though he is still not in a position to take up a full time job, he is fit enough to take care of his daily needs and also to attend Church mass. (However he still stays close to the Aster Medcity Hospital for any emergency)

However the family is in tight financial condition owing to him unable to start work. Their elder son is still a student and needs 2 more year's to graduate. The funds will be transferred to his wife's bank account.

Thank you all.

Regards,
Antony
