Help Bhavya Undergo An Urgent Spine Surgery


We are a team of IDEX Fellows based in Bangalore and we are trying to raise funds for Bhavya, an 18 year old girl who is suffering from scoliosis and needs immediate surgery (scoliosis correction and spinal cord detethering). Bhavya resides in Koramangala, Bangalore, and we have personally met the family.

The Hindu has recently published the story of Bhavya and of this crowdfunding campaign. You can read it here: http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/karnataka/Well-wishers-crowdfund-essential-surgery-for-young-Bengaluru-achiever/article16744853.ece

How much does the surgery cost?
The total cost of the surgery is INR 5 lakh and the family has already managed to secure INR 3.5 - 4 lakh. We are looking to fund raise only INR 1 lakh.  All the money collected will be automatically transferred to Manipal Hospital's bank account. 

We will be glad to share any further details. Please spread the word and help the girl!

*UPDATE *
Dear Supporters,

Bhavya was operated on 30 Nov 2016 in Manipal hospital. Her operation lasted 11 hours and was successful! She is still in ICU and under observation. Doctors are very optimistic about her recovery.
Thanks to all your support we were able to raise INR 1 Lakh for her surgery. Family was relying on INR 2.5 Lakhs to come from PMO, but it has not turned up yet. Hence, we are again relying on YOU to support Bhavya. We are raising  additional INR 2 Lakhs.
We appreciate your help. 
Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

We connected with Bhavya's doctor, Dr Thomas Kishen, yesterday for a quick update on her recovery and he had some great news to share!

"Thank you for helping to raise funds for Ms. Bhavya. Her surgery is a successful one and is able to walk independently. Sharing her pre and post surgery x-rays and the impact is for you to see. A big Thank You from the surgical team to all the donors for helping Bhavya get back on her feet."
- Dr Thomas Kishen
