Help Amlan fund his liver transplant operation

Dear Supporter,

I am here to fundraise for my maternal uncle, Mr. Amlan Dasgupta who is just 44 years of age and is suffering from deadly cryptogenic cirrhosis (CC), which is the end stage of a chronic liver disease. Even after extensive clinical, serological, and pathological evaluations, the reason for his cirrhosis remains unknown till date.

After being diagnosed with cirrhosis for the first time in 2011, Amlan was relatively stable till his condition deteriorated quickly in the last few months and now it is impossible for him to continue a normal life. Amlan is presently under the treatment of Dr. (Prof) Mohamed Rela at Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation (Gleneagles Global Health City), Chennai. 

After frequent visits to Chennai and series of consultation and tests, it has been established that an immediate liver transplant operation is absolutely necessary.

Since the chances of success of liver transplant operation are higher if the donor is a relative under 40 years, Amlan’s only son Archito, who is just 18 years of age, has decided voluntarily to donate his liver to his father.

Amlan who is the primary bread earner belongs to a middle-class family and works as a medical representative in Kolkata. The family with their modest means has been pushing their limits to care for Amlan and arrange for the funds for his operation. The pre-surgery expense for hospitalization and investigation for Amlan and Archito till date, liver transplant operation, post care, travel to Chennai from Kolkata and prolong stay for the family there, all taken together is very expensive and is beyond the means of the family. The total estimated cost is around Rs 40 lakhs (~USD 61,500) of which the operation itself is going to cost around Rs 24.5 lakhs (~USD 37,700)

After selling their house and reaching out to friends, family, and colleagues, Amlan still requires a substantial amount for his operation which is scheduled for the last week of July 2017.  Under these circumstances, I thought of reaching out to friends and well-wishers through this crowdfunding site as I have heard many success stories that have completely changed people's lives for the better.

I would be grateful for every little donation that comes our way that will help me raise Rs 20 lakhs (~USD 30,750) for Amlan's operation. Archito, who gave his Class 12 exams this year, was unable to score as per his merit due to his family situation. Now all he wants is to save his father by donating his liver and see to it that Amlan is able to lead a healthy life again.

Many thanks for your help and support,
Anindya

Dear Supporters,

It’s been only a couple of days since I started this campaign to help Amlan fund his liver transplant surgery, and we are overwhelmed with the kind of support that has been extended by all of you already. Relatives, close friends, friends who I have not kept in touch for a long time or complete strangers who I haven’t met before, have all come forward to support. Thank you all. I have tried to reach out to all of you personally to express our gratitude on behalf of Amlan who is overjoyed by your support. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all anonymous supporters who I am unable to reach out to personally; we highly appreciate your support.

Amlan’s update: Amlan’s son Archito, who will be donating for his father’s liver transplant surgery, was detected with fatty liver during pre-transplant biopsy last time. He has been put on a restricted diet and medication to reduce this. As the family is arranging for funds for the surgery, Archito and his mother has left for Chennai yesterday (25th June) for the next round of pre-transplant tests and will be there until 30th June. We hope this time things will improve and all the test results will be fine as it is important that Archito is at his best physically for the surgery to be successful. I’ll keep updating you regarding the developments from time to time and hope you will also keep Amlan in your prayers.

Best regards,
Anindya
