Avinash has a good chance of recovery and all his pain can come to an end if the treatment is continued. Unfortunately, his parents cannot afford it.
Avinash has never known a life without illnessLittle Avinash is a happy child with an innocent smile on his face. He is very calm and introvert who loves to spend most of his time at his home in Hyderabad. But this little one has been through a lot of pain for his age. Avinash was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome when he was just one year old. It is a condition where the kidneys does not function as it should, causing excess protein loss through urine and excess accumulation of water in the body. Every time Avinash’s body swells up because of excess water accumulation, his parents would immediately take him to the hospital.
‘My son needs to be taken to the hospital once in every three months to keep his condition from worsening. He would be admitted in the hospital for a day or two and then he would get back to normal. But this time, it’s even more dreadful than I ever thought.’ - Madhavi, mother
Avinash during his healthy days
He will lose his life if he doesn’t get continued treatmentWith timely medication and regular check-ups, Avinash's condition was kept in control. But now even the medicines are not helping him. Avinash was diagnosed with jaundice followed by fever a few days back. He was given medicines but his condition only kept worsening. He started having violent seizures and lost his consciousness all of a sudden. Not knowing what was happening to him, his parents took him to the hospital immediately.
Avinash was immediately admitted in the intensive care. He’s currently under dialysis support as his kidneys have stopped working and he needs constant breathing support as he’s unable to breathe on his own. "Doctors said that my son is recovering slowly. He needs to stay in intensive care for seven more days to get better. We don’t have any means to continue the treatment. Please help us." says Madhavi with tears.
