“We took him to the doctors. They did so many tests and then told us that Shlok has a hole in his heart. He needs an urgent surgery. We were not at all prepared for this,” - Gajanan,father.
However, these parents didn’t lose hope. They somehow arranged for the money so that Shlok can have the surgery.
But their battle is not over yetShlok’s surgery was done on 26th June. But he is not out of danger. He is in the ICU for the last 15 days - he has a severe infection in his body.
“They say his organs are failing. His kidneys, his lungs - they’re giving up on him. He needs to stay in the ICU for longer. But the prices are so high, how will I afford that?”
Gajanan needs your helpFor almost a month now, Gajanan and his family has been staying in the hospital. Their 10-month-old daughter is also with them - sleeping on the cold floor.
“But what can I do? I feel like I am the most helpless father. I am pushing both my children towards death. And all because I don’t have enough money. I have borrowed from everyone I know, there’s nothing more I can do.
Gajanan works in a small kirana store in Latur, Maharashtra. He hardly makes about Rs 6000 a month. But now he needs 3 lakhs for Shlok’s treatment. With no one else to turn to - you are his only hope.
The photos that you are seeing were taken when Shlok was better. Now he is struggling for his life in the ICU. He needs your help and he needs it urgently.
