He did not understand the seriousness of the medical condition and continued with his daily routine, but soon found it difficult to cope up with his routine. The multidisciplinary heart transplant team at Madras Medical Mission declared that it was time for him to get a heart transplant done .
The cost of heart transplant is approximately Rs -20-25 lakhs and it is beyond his family means to afford it. He has so far spent around Rs5 lakhs for the medical care since 2013 .
