We are planning to shift him to MGM hospitals and register for the Lung transplant. It might take a month or even 2 months to find a suitable donor. Till then he has to be on ECMO support. By God's grace his condition might improve and get cured in that waiting period too. Requesting all to keep praying for that to happen.
But, God forbid, if he reaches a stage where the only option left would be a transplant, we are estimating the expenses to come around 1.5 Crores. This includes the ECMO support for 30 days or more (1.5 - 2L per day) and the transplantation procedure charges. Please do support and pray for my husband.
AMOUNT SPENT TILL DATE - Around 60 Lacs
ECMO Charges per day - 1.5 to 2 Lacs
For 60 days (at least) - 1 Crore 20 Lacs
Lung Transplant - 35 Lacs
Total Cost (Approx) - 1 Crore 55 Lacs
My dear friend and colleague Praveen has been tested positive with Covid-19 few weeks back, and is in on ventilator support, battling for his life. Doctors have moved him to ECMO to supplement his lungs for pumping enough oxygen into blood.
We as colleagues are trying our best to support him and his family financially and morally, and we have started this fundraiser to pay for the medical expenses.
