Balamurugan who is in ICU since July first week, for more than two months, fighting bravely with the acute pancreatitis and related chronic ailments, is the sole breadwinner for his family of four. He was a Lathe worker with bare minimum income to run a small family of four. His wife Anitha is a home maker and they have two blessed children, the boy studying 5th standard and the little girl in UKG. I happened to meet Anitha when I was tending to my close relative who was admitted to the same ICU. Though I too was tending to a patient who was undergoing painful time, it was heart wrenching to hear the struggle that poor Balamurugan and family are undergoing. Keeping a patient in ICU is a costly affair and the day expenses run anywhere between 25k to 40k depending on the level of care and treatment required. With Balamurugan's rare diseases which affected his pancreas with out any symptoms or warnings, which needed a surgery and more follow up surgeries, and with his condition the stomach had to be kept open--unstitched--he has to be kept in ICU until his condition becomes stable and then he needs a procedure to close his stomach safely . The Hospital--Sundarm Medical Foundation (Dr.Rangarajan Memorial Trust) --and the Doctors/staff are very kind and they are doing their best. The hospital given some concession and are charging only the bare minimum charges to maintain him in ICU and the direct costs of his treatment and the Doctors are mostly treating him with out charging 聽a fee to the extent possible.
As they are from a lower middle class background and Balamurugan was the sole bread winner, the family has exhausted all the savings and all possible immediate resources--they have sold their jewelry, have borrowed from relatives and friends and with the kind help from all immediate resources available, they could so far maintain him in ICU. The expenses have crossed 8 Lacs and for him to improve, the Doctors advice another few weeks of intensive care for which they need to be prepared to pay around 5 more Lacs. This is when I met them--when they were helplessly staring at the possibility of not being able to pay the money and continue his life saving treatment--they were not aware of such fundraising opportunities. As a contributor in Milaap and having seen a fund raiser of one of my friend helping him to meet a huge medical expense of his little daughter, I gave them hope that through Milaap and the kind hearted brethren we can definitely raise the fund to continue and fulfill Balamurugan's treatment. I'm writing this here with utmost belief in the mankind and millions of kind hearted fellows and this great und raising platform. I have attached the letter given by the ICU Doctor DR. Prabhu from SMF on Balamurugan's condition, treatments and the expenses. Please feel free to call the Hospital to verify facts. 窗体顶端

They need a minimum 5 Lacs to keep him in ICU for few more weeks and provide him with necessary treatments to save his life. I request you, my brother/sister, to contribute what so ever possible to save struggling Balamurugan’s life and his family--and also please do not forget to share to all your contacts and request them to contribute and keep sharing to their contacts. God is with in us and to realize Her, the way is to give kindness to fellow human beings in what ever ways possible. Money is the least possible way ;but the care and thoughts with which we give the money makes it more worthy. It is like saying that we are no different and that we are there for you dear sister. Please do contribute ; Please do pray; Please do share and request to share.
