Help Babu Undergo A Kidney Transplant

In 2009, while being at work, Babu a worker in a small manufacturing company in India suddeny collapsed and was diagnosed with Kidney Failure. Prior to this, Babu led a completely healthy life. Due to shortage of donors, Babu spent 2 years on dialysis until a third party donor was identified. A few months into the treatment Babu lost his job. He finally had kidney transplant surgery in March 2011, completely funded by friends and family. Babu is 44 years old, an amazing man with incredible faith, a wonderful family and friends. He has also been the sole supporter of his wife and 12 years old son studying in 7th grade.

Unfortunately he was diagnosed with kidney failure once again and advised to begin dialysis. By this time, the medical bills had piled up. According to Quora, the total cost of kidney transplant would be between INR 7L (USD $10,000) to INR 9L (USD $12,000). In most of these hospitals, kidney transplant is a packaged procedure and it would include donor surgery and transplant surgery both, surgeon fees, room rent for both donor & patient, drugs and consumable, food and support staff costs.

Follow up medical costs post surgery typically range from INR 10,000 - 15,000 per month. This does not include ongoing costs of dialysis to stay alive and functioning. Each dialysis costs INR 1000 - 2,500 and it should be carried out three times in the week.

So many of you have reached out asking how you can help this wonderful man, outside of your prayers.

Babu's road ahead is long, and very expensive. His weight has reduced from 68 Kgs (150 lbs) to 43 Kgs (94lbs) in 10 months. He has pretty much sold all that could be sold. His health condition is deteriorating day by day and the doctor has advised to go for surgery immediately. This time his mother will be the donor and is a match.

Supporting Babu with whatever you can give and help relieve the financial burden would be greatly appreciated. With financial assistance, Babu and his family can focus on his surgery to save his life and getting healthy and strong.

It has been a long while without any updates.
I had been holding it off to give some positive news. Unfortunately it has not been a smooth sailing. Babu developed some more complications in between. There was an abnormal accumulation of fluid around the heart negatively impacting the heart. He was in and out of th ICU. He had to go through a couple of other processes to drain the fluid at regular intervals. So they had to hold off the transplant.
They restarted the dialysis again and the good news is that we may finally be on track.
In between, there was an issue with the paper work regarding approvals from the donor.
A couple of friends are at work on it.

Please keep him in your prayers

Dear Supporters,
It was a short vacation for me. I met Babu and he asked me to thank you all on his behalf. He has been having some more health issues and the doctors have increased the dialysis from 3 a week to 4. But he has been positive about the entire process and is being strong.
The paperwork has been going a bit slow. Approvals from government offices is a task by itself. My friend Mahesh has been doing a great job coordinating all the activities.
As of now, we expect the expenses to be around  Rs.2,70,000 (~$4200) (plasma X 6 times and dialysis X 12) before the surgery.

Thank you again to all the new contributors. God bless.

Please help out and do spread the word.

Dear Supporters,

I am in Coimbatore on vacation this week. It has been great meeting up with old friends. We have managed to get some more funds externally and I have now revised the goal.
The paper work for the donor has just started. Once this is done, we will start on the Plasmapheresis. We are targeting end of June for now.

Thank you all for your support
