It happened so suddenly that we didn't even have time to comprehend that he was actually dying
"Back in September, my brother's hands, legs, and stomach began to swell. Suddenly there was water accumulation and he was in a lot of pain. He was unable to move."
The brothers went to a gastroenterologist referred by a local doctor. He examined and diagnosed Lakshmi Narayana with liver cirrhosis. At the time, he was prescribed medication and sent home. In a few days, the problem got worse. They went to another hospital where after a battery of tests, Lakshmi Narayana was prescribed more medication. His condition turned serious and as the pain got unbearable, he switched hospitals yet again right in time to know that he wouldn't survive without a liver transplant.
Every day we spend around Rs. 25000 while our total earning for a year is Rs. 50000
Lakshmi Narayana is not on the hospital bed waiting for fate to decide whether he lives or dies. His brother is struggling to meet the medical expenses and also arrange for the funds that can go towards his surgery. So far, they have spent Rs. 5 lakhs from mortgaging the land that was their only source of income. Now, the family feels frustrated begging everyone they know for Rs. 10 or Rs. 20 to amass Rs. 35 Lakhs for the surgery.
"He has 3 children. He was going to educate them and send them out of the village so they didn't have to be like us. Now, if they lose him, they would end up following in our footsteps. He is in so much pain. I don't know what to do."
Your contribution can save this man, and his struggling family.
