    Akhil G

    from Guntur, Andhra Pradesh

6-year-old Akhil is suffering from a deadly disease(Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome) that has caused his kidneys to stop functioning, is now in extreme critical condition in the ICU. He has chances of recovering completely but he has no option but to remain in the ICU for the next few weeks and get additional life-saving treatment too. His father, who has already sold everything he had, has nothing left to save him now.



Akhil was normal until March, 2018, Since then it started eyes turning yellow and he couldn't resist pain in his abdomen, even his urine contained blood too. His parents thought that its normal jaundice and got him some general medication.

Having seen that Akhil couldn't resist the severe pain in abdomen, Subbarao, Akhil's Father took him to a hospital to get checkup. Then they came to know that these were the symptoms of a deadly disease Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS).



In short Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) is a disease characterized by a triad of hemolytic anemia (anemia caused by destruction of red blood cells), acute kidney failure (uremia), and a low platelet count (thrombocytopenia).

So far, Subbarao and Lalitha(Akhil's Mother) has spent Rs. 3 lacs to get treatment done for Akhil. For help, he has asked everyone he could and now, he has absolutely nothing left to provide for the additional life-saving treatments Akhil needs in the ICU.

The total cost of the treatment is estimated to be around Rs. 6.125 lakhs and Subbarao is running out of time to save his son. He is left with no option but crowdfunding.

After 20 days of treatment:

Akhil's condition still remains the same and the doctors increased the number of Haemodialysis and Plasmapheresis to be given. Hence the estimation cost of treatment increased to 11-12 lacs.
