Help David Livingstan(Levi) Recover From Life Threatening Brain Injury

David (33 yrs old) met with a shocking and tragic road accident on July 7th, 2018. His 2 wheeler was hit from the back by a speeding taxi at Ramanagara Highway (Solur Junction). He sustained brain injury because of direct impact with the car and thereafter been thrown on to the highway. He was immediately taken by the Highway patrol police to the nearby hospital. Since the hospital was not able to handle such complicated medical conditions, David had to be immediately shifted to healthcare facilities in Bangalore to save his life. By the time i reach the spot, David was unconscious, vomiting, bleeding through his ears & nose, hanging on to life. Due to the desperation and emergency of the situation we had admit him to the nearest trauma  unit - Sparsh Super Speciality Hospital (Yeswantpur).

At the moment: 
After the initial scans and diagnosis, David was immediately wheeled in for emergency brain surgery to stop internal bleeding and injury. A major clot was removed from his brain surgically and he was in NICU on ventilator support for 4 days.  He has been declared out of danger though he is still in a semi-coma stage and a long road to recovery, as there is still blood clot in his brain and exact lose of his body function is yet to be assessed by the medical team. However doctors have assured there is hope for improvement by providing proper medical support.  With each passing day, the doctors are trying their best to diagnose and help him fully recover. But it is becoming more and more difficult for his family to bear the mounting medical expenses as he is the sole breadwinner of the family. Family has considered moving him to a more affordable medical facility but can't do so due to his critical condition.

David's Background:
David comes from a very simple background, been born and brought up in Mangalore. He moved to Bangalore to work and support the family and help his father's medical treatment. He lost his father 3 yrs back and from then has been the only working member of the family consisting of mother & younger sister. David is an AC Technician in bangalore based company with a monthly income of Rs. 20,000.

As his mother & sister are still in shock, we as relatives are trying to arrange funds to ensure his continued treatment.

David's medical costs have already crossed Rs. 5 Lakhs and we are seeking your immediate support to arrange 10 Lakhs towards David's Treatment.

Any additional support/references that can subsidize the medical care is also most gratefully appreciated.
