Help GokulaPriyan get a new heart


Gokulapriyan is a 21 year old young man, resident of Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu. He urgently needs a heart transplant to save his life. Mother Mrs.Vijayalakshmi is a home maker and father Mr. Subramanian is a bus driver . He also has a younger sister by name Ms. Divya Keerthi (13 years old). I had just recently completed my Engineering (B.tech) . 

He was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (atrial septal defect of secundum type and familial Atrio-ventricular node conduction defect) during infancy . This was the same condition that his sister Divya Keerthi was diagnosed with and left her mentally retarded. This came as a big shock to the family.


Gokulapriyan underwent surgical closure of atrial septal defect with tricuspid valve repair in the year 2005 at Kovai Taminadu . Soon after undergoing  this surgery his symptoms were remarkably relieved and he started to gain weight.

Until 2015 , he was leading a very normal life with minimal  symptoms. In the year 2015 , his tricuspid valve was leaking  very severely and was referred to  Madras Medical Mission Hospital ,Chennai for further management .

He then required a permanent pacemaker for a complete heart block . He was implanted with a dual chamber Pacemaker (Boston Advantio) .

Currently his condition started to worsen by the day and gets occasional giddiness. The doctors here at Madras Medical Mission  have re-evaluated him and they have recommended him to undergo a heart transplant surgery at the earliest .

His family is also not able to cope up with the expenses incurred and an unprecedented medical crisis . They have already spent around Rs.15Lakh so far, for both Gokulapriyan and his sister's surgeries for a permanent pacemaker implantation. 

Furthermore mobilizing an estimate of Rs.15 lakhs for GokulaPriyan's heart transplant surgery  is a far dream to him and his family .

Apart from his heart condition, his career pathway is also remarkably disrupted  and his dream to pursue a masters degree is slowly fading away.

He also requires funds for his life-long medications that will cost around Rs.30,000/month.

His entire family is stressed out and going through  a very stressful situation and have exhausted their strength both mentally and financially .
Please contribute and support GokulanPriyan to have a succesful heart transplant.

Dear supporters,

Greetings from Madras Medical Medical Hospital ,

We are pleased to inform that Mr.Gokulapriyan underwent a heart transplant. On 5th March 2017 we received a miraculous donor call from TRANSTAN -Transplant authority of Tamilnadu. We had a 24-year-old suitable donor at Christian Medical College and Hospitals, Vellore. The donor was from Chattisghar who was declared brain dead and the family of this 24-year-old multi-organ deceased donor came forward to donate their precious daughter's organs to give new lease of life for more than 6 people who are dying. Last week Gokulapriyan had been critically ill and there was no hope of getting a suitable donor heart till March 5th . 

Gokulapriyan is in a critical phase following the procedure. His recuperating time might get extended furthermore as he deteriorated pre-operatively (5 days prior to surgery). Parents are very concerned and fearful regarding the further requirements of funds for his medical treatment. Please help us in arranging for more funds for his post-operative treatment.
