Help Geeta Thakker Undergo Double Lung Transplant.

Family Background:-
My name is Monish Thakker, son of Geeta Thakker (Benficiary). We belong to a middle class family. We are a family of 4 people living in Mumbai(shifted Chennai for treatment). My Mother and Father have worked their whole life day and night and are now retired. As me and my father are required to take care of my mother, I stay at home. My elder brother is the sole earning member in the family. The income earned gets utilised for meeting  day to day family requirements.

Diagnosed Disease:-
My mother has been diagnosed with ILD (Interstitial Lung Disease) for past 5 years. Interstitial lung disease is a general category that includes many different lung conditions. ILD is a disease related to Lungs in which tissue from the air sacs(Alveoli) become thicker thus making it difficult for lungs to supply oxygen into the blood stream thus creating scars on the lungs. All interstitial lung diseases affect the Interstitium, a part of the lungs' anatomic structure. This disease is incurable till date.

                                     


She has been fighting strongly with the Lung failure. Due to this disease, she is not able to breath by herself. She needs oxygen support 24 hrs to support her breathing function. She cannot perform routine work by herself. She is bed bound at the moment.
Now doctors suggest that she needs to undergo Double Lung Transplant. The surgery needs to take place at Global Hospitals in Chennai. Transplant is her only hope at getting better and living a normal life. She needs a Lung transplant urgently.

                                   


                                   


Day to day requirements:-
The monthly salary of my brother goes into following things:
1. Oxygen Machine - 7500/month
2. Bipap Machine - 7000/month
3. Physiotherapy - 15000/month
4. Medicines - 10000 to 15000/month
etc.

Treatment Cost:-
Her treatment will cost approximately Rs. 40,00,000 ($50 Thousand Dollars).

Usage of Funds:-
The funds raised will be used towards her:
         1.Transplant Surgery
         2.Hospital Bills
         3.Medicines
         4.Physiotherapy

Message from Heart:-
Dear Donors, I have made the courage and started spreading the word on behalf of my mom. Till date I have not received any significant funding. But my faith in humanity and kindness of the people has not died away. I know there exist people with golden heart like you who are always willing to help needy people like me and always there to support.

My Mother's life is supported by a oxygen machine 24x7. Even when she is sleeping, she requires artificial oxygen. Can you imagine everything being taken from you in a second where you had the freedom of doing whatever you wanted to do, go wherever you wanted to go but now you don't have the freedom to do so. I can only imagine what she must be feeling everyday of her life for past 2 years.  

 I have the will to give my mom a second innings of her life. This is very much possible with your help. I am requesting you guys to help me out to raise the funds for surgery. I am sure you know what a mother means to us and what her essence in our life is. She is irreplaceable in our life.

 I request you to kindly contribute towards her treatment and help during our time of need. Each contribution is important!. She deserves to walk on roads breathing natural oxygen like you and I do. She deserves a normal life like you and I do.

 Kindly also share the fundraiser on WhatsApp and Social Media platforms so that I can reach my goal amount because there is  power in unity. 

 Last thing I would say is that "Be generous, it may grant someone a new life". Thanks.

Respected Supporters,

We have been on this journey of my mother getting rid of the disease she has i.e Intersitial Lung Disease. From having no funds, moving into new city and overcoming my mothers malnutrition our family has faced it all.

Now the window has finally arrived after a long fought struggle where she is not underweight and her health is also good. This is the perfect time for her to undergo Lung Transplant. We have exhausted every bit of fund we have , still we are falling short of the amount we need to make registration i.e 35 lakhs.

So I would urge you all to contribute once again in raising funds to help my mom get registered. Donate as much as you can, share as much as you can to help us get over this hurdle. We would not be here without your generosity, please help us in this tough time.

Milaap is offering a 15% matching on all the funds until the funds last to help raise funds faster towards Geeta's treatment.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for the support and love.

After a year of consistent efforts we have finally been able to increase my mother's weight which was the core reason in so much delay. Now after considering all the factors doctors have suggested us for registration of pateint. For registration purposes we are pulling all the funding we have gathered from all possible sources. This donation will go in the process of paying such huge amount of 35 lakhs. I once again thank those who have donated in the noble cause and would urge them to donate more as we would be requiring more funds.

Thanks

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for the love and support.

My mom is still under rehabilitation, she is showing great improvement since we have moved to Chennai. Though she is still a bit underweight but with your blessings she will pass that hurdle too. Global Hospital is doing a great job in this regard. Physiotherapy and weight gaining is going on, on  a daily basis.

Keep sharing this fundraiser to as many people as possible and keep supporting us you have done so far.
