    Ajay Vikram Khedkar

    from Pune, Maharashtra

Meet Ajay Khedkar from Pune, a regular office going person with a 6 years old daughter, a wife and elderly parents. Life was going as usual for the family and Ajay but 5 years back life took a few turns and today the family looks at the prospects of losing a member forever.
AT the Age of 35 Ajay Suffered his first Brain stroke. Prior to that he was a performing employee with ICICI Bank and destiny turned from there. Due to the impact of this brain stroke Ajay lost his speech and it took over 3 years for him to regain his speech. From them to till now Ajay and his family has gone through worst of medical and financial nightmares. Ajay in last 5 years has suffered 5 brain strokes and 2 cardiac arrests and has been to ICU several times thereafter. Till date friends and family have already spent close to INR 35 Lacs on his medical treatments apart from insurance and now the worst fears of the family have come true.
Ajay suffers from a rare genetic disease named as Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, it is a condition in which a portion of the heart becomes thickened without an obvious cause. This results in the heart being less able to pump blood effectively. Unfortunately, his elder brother also suffers from same ailment.
The doctors treating Ajay at Ruby hospital in Pune are Dr.Sunil Sathe, Dr. Rajkumar Mantravadi, Dr. Jagdeesh Hiremath, they have said that, he needs a heart transplant at the earliest. The expenses for this will go in range of 25 Lacs. (The actual cost of procedure was 40 Lacs, but keeping in mind historical medical expenses incurred by the family the hospital has reduced the cost of procedure to 25 Lacs)
The Friends and Family have arranged for 8 Lacs but need a further 18 Lacs for successful treatment.
This appeal is a leap of faith taken by family and friends of Ajay who do not want to lose him, we are hopeful that we will find many hands to raise our hopes and help us in these difficult times.
Small contributions from your end will go a long way in helping a family.
