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.

Finally after many days of trying...
Presenting you all with the latest picture of David Livingstan (Levi)...

Truly he has come a long way from the time when he was struggling for life to now.
 

His struggle continues to understand and comprehend all that has happened to him, to put together the pieces of his memory, return to his independent former self and fight towards a hopeful future.

His sunken head (his left), is a reminder of the edema (brain swelling) caused by the terrible accident which forced the neuro-surgeons to remove a piece of his skull to save his life, and also a constant reminder of the upcoming surgery shortly. Levi himself has no memory of the accident nor has seen his face in the mirror ever since that unfortunate day. Day by day, as he improves in health, it is also becoming difficult to confine him since he has from a very early age been independent and and the bread winner. The reversal of roles from him being the only support for the family to becoming the dependent one is the most difficult thing for him to accept.

Your support can make a world of a difference in their lives by setting them on the path towards a hopeful, independent future.

A gentle reminder, requesting you all to contribute and support, there are only 6 days left for this campaign so please like, share to your friends and family who could be an angel in Levi's life and donate.

7 DAYS TO GO...
Dear all,
Thank you for all the likes, shares and support raised thus far, we have a small request from our end that you all, please pray, continue to contribute and share this campaign to as many as you can.

David Livingstan (Levi) and his family are in dire need of your help and support, the first round of surgery, hospitalisation and continued medical treatment has totally drained their insurance and savings, they have also taken loans and financial help from all who could help.

Your support at this time is the desperate need of the hour as they start putting together the funds needed for the follow-up surgery to put back his skullcap. The estimated cost of this surgery amounts to 4 lakhs which is a paramount task for the mother and younger sister.

Once again requesting you all to contribute and support, there are only 7 days to go before this campaign ends, so please like, share and donate. It truly will be a blessing and great help to the family.
