Naresh has worked very hard all his life for a better life
Naresh grew up in a small village near Tirupati – Mangalampeta. He saw his parents struggle every day – working as daily-wage workers. He resisted taking the easy way out and finished his education. He learnt accounting and got a job as an accountant in his village.
He got married and had two children and in taking care of everyone's daily needs, he ignored the pain in his chest and his difficulty breathing. For three years, he took medicines prescribed by the doctor to ease his breathing, but they were not very effective and his condition did not improve.
Naresh has been too sick to work for the last 10 months
Naresh's transplant is expected to cost Rs 35 lakhs. It is an amount he can never hope to put together. Even after applying for government support – only Rs 12 lakhs have been waived off. He is expected to put together Rs 22 lakhs on own. It is not something Naresh can manage.
When he had a job, Naresh earned Rs 12,000. But now, for months, there has been no income. Just to stay alive, he needs medicines worth Rs 12,500 every month. His savings are gone and he has spent over Rs 4 lakhs for treatment till now. He has nothing left to even meet the family's basic needs.
Naresh has spent all his money on his medication and now without a job he is finding it very difficult to pay for his treatment.
