Help Nithyashree Undergo Renal Transplant

I am Nithyashree a 25 year old resident of India. What started as an episode of typhoid, 2 months later was diagnosed as a complex kidney disease in it’s fifth stage. Since then it has been a struggle to keep up with the piling medical bills. The illness took a massive toll on me, both physically and mentally. So I had to quit my job earlier in February of this year.

We were not anticipating the cost of the treatment to be this high. We have already spent all our savings on the treatment so far and were helped along the way by some close friends as we had to do multiple rounds of plasmapheresis and also an operation to remove both my kidneys as my anti GBM antibodies count was not coming down.

Now as I await for a transplant, Doctors at Madras Medical Mission have stated the first step is to again do plasmapheresis  in order to bring my anti GBM antibodies under control and I need to undergo blood purification through dialysis 3 times a week for another 6 months. I need to undergo 20 sessions of plasmapheresis every alternate day without skipping any sessions. In order to avoid missing any sessions, it is only possible once all the funds are arranged. In the meanwhile I am having to continue to do additional dialysis.

Each Dialysis session costs Rs 1,850 and each plasmapheresis session costs Rs 34,000. The transplant costs another Rs 7 Lakhs. The expenses going forward will be between 15-16 Lakhs. Additionally there will be expenses after the operation as well. Below is the doctor's letter detailing the costs required until my operation from now on.

My dad is an electrical contractor but has barely been able to get any contracts off late and with the real estate market at it’s low point, the signs for recovery seems bleak. I had to put my treatment on hold due to lack of funds and the entire family is stressed and drained both financially and mentally.

With this campaign, I want to reach out to each one of you to help me and my family in these tough times. My parents are trying their level best but I can see the stress on them as receiving financial assistance is very tough.

I have attached the hospital's estimate letter. Request you to please contribute and help me undergo this treatment.

Dear All,
Thanks to all of you I am entering 2017 with a lot of hope.  2016 was a mixed year. It was pretty bad in the beginning but the support I received from all of you was something which gave me the strength to move on.  Wish each one of you and your families a very happy new year.

I will know more about my condition in the second or third week of Jan and that is when I will know if I can proceed with the surgery or not. I will get to know only then if the treatment received so far will allow me to proceed. Until then battling on with alternate days of dialysis.

Wish you all a safe and happy year ahead.

Regards,
Nithya
