    Arokia Mary

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Have you ever wondered how it would feel when your life was at stake but you did not have money to go to the doctor it? A 27 year old girl from Bangalore knows that feeling too well as she struggles to scrape together money for her treatment!

For the past 1.5 years Mary has not been able to lead a normal life. Plagued by severe headaches, fever, weakness, and facial swelling, she was unable to retain her job. Her poor health condition compelled her to stay at home. During this time, multiple visits were made to different doctors but all symptoms were usually disregarded and attributed to the common flu.
Two weeks back, Mary was diagnosed with an aneurysm (a bulge or ballooning of the wall of a blood vessel) in her main carotid artery – the artery which carries blood to the brain. If not addressed, carotid aneurysms can form clots in the artery and block blood flowing to the brain. This can result in debilitating strokes that cause paralysis, brain damage or death. (Medical report has been uploaded)

Therefore, it is critical that Mary get this operation done at the earliest. However, just the operation alone costs 3.5 – 4 lakhs (Estimate of operation cost has been uploaded). Mary’s entire family (herself, her mother, and her father) is supported by her elder sister who works at a beauty salon in Bangalore. Payment for the consultation fees and tests prior to the operation itself has placed the family in debt. They currently do not possess the financial capacity to pay for an operation that is essential for Mary’s survival.

We are reaching out to you with the hope that you will be willing to donate some money – however small – so that a young girl does not have to live in constant fear for her life.
