It's a devastating situation for Joshua and his family members right now. They are going through a heartbreaking and deep crisis in their family.
I take this opportunity to truly appreciate and value all the people, who are with me to support this campaign, in joining me to save Joshua's life.
This gives Joshua and his family immense strength and hope to fight back.
Melwyn Joshua, who is 18 years old , was riding on a bike along with his friend, to church on Sunday the 16th July 2017. Unfortunately he met with a terrible accident on the intermediate ring road, near Domlur Bangalore. Suddenly a car came in front of him, to avoid the car from hitting him, he turned his bike and lost control and hit the divider. In the bargain his lungs were severely damaged because of the huge impact of the accident. It was only God's grace that there was no head injuries. But his lungs were badly damaged. We are hoping and praying every day for his recovery . He has been on the ventilator and life support in the MICU, from the last 25 days, since his lungs are badly damaged , he is battling for life and breath every minute.
Doctors are doing their best in every possible way as he is young boy who dreams of life and a promising future.
Tracheostomy has been done 10 days ago and bronchoscopies are done very frequently ,to check the progress of his lungs. But it is a very slow recovery process, because of the heavy impact of the injury caused to his lungs.
ONE MAJOR DRAW BACK IN JOSHUA'S LIFE IS THE FACT THAT, HE IS NOT COVERED UNDER INSURANCE. HE HAS A BIRTH DEFECT IN HIS HEART. SO INSURANCE IS VOID.
Doctor's say he has other injuries and fractures too, but they are right now focussing on his lungs and hoping it will function soon. They are also hoping to wean him out of the ventilator.
The hospital bills are sky rocketing and it is impossible to bear from our end. We are just a middle class family, we can't afford this massive hospital expenditure and medicines which are very expensive. Every day the expenses are unmanageable.
If any one wants any information, regarding Joshua and his family, please call me on 9742122791, so that I can direct you guys to his family members.
I truly appreciate all the supporters , who selflessely extend their contribution towards Joshua' s life, God bless.
