Baby Sumanth Has Sepsis After Being Treated For Dengue. Help Him Live

Nagaraj and Asha are worried parents. Their eleven month old son has been in the ICU the past couple weeks.

Nagaraj is handicapped. Despite his disabilities, he runs a small business - an eatery in Kunigal, in rural Bangalore. He barely earns Rs 15,000 a month. A huge chunk of this money goes in buying raw materials for the eatery. The family still has a loan of Rs 3 lakhs that they are repaying for the eatery.

A month ago, baby Sumanth fell ill. 
His parents rushed him to a local doctor, who prescribed the baby with dengue.  Nagaraj and Asha admitted their son in a small hospital in Kunigal. Baby Sumanth was not given proper care here- and he developed blood poisoning.

His parents did not even understand what was wrong:

Nagaraj and Asha thought their baby was getting better after the medications for dengue. They had no idea that his blood poisoning was slowly causing sepsis. After a few days In the Kunigal hospital, they realized that something was wrong. Sumanth was getting worse, not better.

The family came down to Bangalore for their son’s treatment:
At this time, Sumanth was in a critical stage. He had severe shock as a result of sepsis. His lungs, heart, kidneys, and liver had almost failed. Doctors at People Tree Hospital in Bangalore worked constantly to revive him.
Luckily, his condition improved. Sumanth underwent dialysis for his kidneys for ten days. After a strong course of antibiotics, his health is now much better.

How Can you help?

Nagaraj and Asha have to pay more than Rs 1.5 lakhs to the hospital. Baby Sumanth still needs to be in the hospital, but his parents cannot afford the medical bills. They have taken Sumanth home- and are bringing him to the hospital for his doctor’s visits. Sumanth still needs medications and care to resume a normal life.

Baby Sumanth has already fought so hard for his life. Your contribution can help him live a long healthy life.
