We are a 7 member’s family (5 children) and my father is 66 years old, retired government employee, he was detected with the cancer on 28th August 2018 and then he has undergone one 10 hours long and excruciating surgery on 10th October 2018, in which his voice box (larynx), which was infected with cancer, was completely removed and a bypass surgery was done (he is unable to speak now). But later on, there was a complication, because of which another surgery was done which also lasted for nearly 2 hours.
He has been admitted in the ICU ever since and has been on ventilator for most of the days. Its been 33 days till now and the treatment's expenses are piling up. My father is admitted in Sahyadri Super Speciality Hospital, Nashik, initially, the doctors had given an estimate of Rs. 13 Lakhs but, the amount has already reached and the expenses continues to go up. Apart from the ICU’s cost, the cost of medicines and the tests are also increasing day by day. Below is the image of the estimate that hospital has provided (which was from 10th October and in the estimate it is mentioned that the estimated amount is for 20-22 days, but its been 33 days till now) :
My company has provided the parental insurance of 4 lakhs which is already exhausted and apart from that we don’t have any financial support from anywhere and whatever we had, has already been spent on the treatment.
Following are some of the reports:
