Why am I fundraising?

Abhishek Dalvi is a fighter, with a huge heart. Having successfully fought off cancer as a teenager, his heart now needs a transplant. 

****UPDATE - Dec 29, 2015*****

By the Grace of God and prayers that each one of you sent from your heart, Abhishek found a new heart yesterday! He was taken into surgery immediately. The operation was successful and Abhishek is now in recovery.

With this, the purpose of this fund-raise has been completed. And with gratitude, we are halting our efforts to raise more funds. We have enough for Abhishek. And hope that anyone coming to this link to contribute now will choose to favour another life in need.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us throughout the unfolding of this miracle. Your large-heartedness and unconditional love for Abhishek kept us going.

As it has helped bring healing in Abhishek's life, it has also made a huge difference in the way we, his friends, see life. 

Thank you for being a part of our journey.

****UPDATE - Dec 21, 2015****

Abhi has been airlifted to Fortis Chennai early this morning. It was a safe flight and e has been admitted in the ICU now. Chances of him finding a donor there are greater  in Chennai, and we are hoping he will get a heart donor in the next couple of days. We will keep you updated as his status changes.

This was only possible because of your help. We really appreciate it.

Following are some of the pictures from his airlift:

Doctors have now recommended to go for an artificial heart right away, to ensure the organs dont fail, before the matching donor heart arrives. We have increased the goal to Rs. 90L, which is the ask for the artificial heart. Attached is the doctor recommendation.

I am overwhelmed with the love that you all have showered upon me and which helped me to get the courage i needed to get out of the situation i was in to.
Thank you so much for being with me and giving me this second life smile emoticon. By gods grace and your blessings i am doing good now and I am finally coming back to mumbai.
