I am here to fundraising for my college friend Naveen Bhalla, who is just 43 years of age and is suffering from "Liver Cirrhosis", for which urgent Liver Transplant has been advised by the Surgeon. Even after extensive clinical, serological, and pathological evaluations, the reason for his cirrhosis remains unknown till date.
Until his condition was diagnosed Naveen was a happy man with cute son and supportive wife and right now he is jobless to cure himself and belongs to Jammu.
After being diagnosed with Liver Cirrhosis for the first time in April 2017, Naveen's condition was relatively stable till June. His condition deteriorated quickly in the last three months and now it is impossible for him to continue a normal life. He has stopped going out due to his deteriorating condition.
He is presently under the treatment at Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences, New Delhi and may be shifted to other hospital where the Liver Donor will be available.
After frequent visits to Delhi and series of consultation and tests, it has been concluded that an liver transplant operation is absolutely necessary. Looking as his condition doctors have advised him to get operated as early as possible.
Naveen is currently looking for a donor and there are some kind hearted people from chennai who are interested in donating liver.
Naveen is the primary bread earner belongs to a lower middle-class family but currently out of job. The family with their modest means has been pushing their limits to care for Naveen and arrange for the funds for his operation. The pre-surgery expense for hospitalization and investigation for him till date, liver transplant operation, post care, travel to Delhi from Jammu and prolong stay for the family there, all taken together is very expensive and is beyond the means of the family. The total estimated cost is around Rs 50 lakhs INR of which the operation itself is estimated to cost around Rs 29 lakhs (approx ~USD 44257)
After taking out his whole life saving and reaching out to friends, family, and colleagues, Naveen still requires a substantial amount for his operation which is scheduled in next one or two months. Under these circumstances, I thought of reaching out to friends and well-wishers through this crowdfunding site as I have heard many success stories that have completely changed people's lives for the better.
I would be grateful for every little donation that comes our way that will help me raise Rs 30 lakhs (~USD 45952.36) for Naveen's operation.
All I want to help my friend to recover be their to support his family.
Many thanks for your help and support.
