This fundraiser is for Mrs Revathi who suffers from a very rare lung condition - Bronchiectasis with type 2 respiratory failure. Her body is incapable of sustaining the requisite oxygen and this in-turn increases the carbon dioxide levels which can prove to be fatal if not not treated at regular intervals. Oxygen therapy (pumping out the CO2 and pumping in oxygen manually) is her only survival chance every time, all through her life. Pulmonologists suggest that she might benefit from a machine called BiPaP (bilevel positive airway pressure) which costs 1 lac INR.
She has a 6 year old daughter who is traumatized every time her mother falls sick. The family is socioeconomically very backward and cannot afford the cost of the machine and needs help. Requesting kind hearts to contribute and support. Your small contributions can set up a future for Revathi and her kid.
Mrs. Revathi is a patient at the MMC, Chennai and her consultant pulmonologist is a close friend of mine.
