Hi, my name is Abhishek Kumar. I am writing on this platform because I have exhausted all my resources, and I need your help to bring my father back home.
My father Mr. Dhruv Singh had recently retired(December 31, 2016) from his UP police job.My father is based out of Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. He was in the process of completing the formalities for his Pension and PF. He recently came to visit us in Pune as he is very close to his 8-month granddaughter. After completing one month of a nice stay in pune, he was supposed to leave Pune on 2nd April but on on an unfortunate night of 1st April, he started complaining of chest pain which turned out to be a Cardiac Arrest. We got him admitted in Columbia Asia Hospital Pune on 1st April night where he had an Angioplasty but it couldn’t help as it turned out to be unsuccessful. Doctors suggested an open-heart surgery but asked us to wait till his body is strong enough for the operation at that time. After 5 days on medication at Ruby Hospital he was discharged and medication was continued at home. And on 10th May 2017, an Open-Heart Surgery and Valve replacement was performed in Inlaks Budhrani Hospital Pune.
Since the open heart surgery, his lungs are not working properly and he is on ventilator continuously. Doctors tried to get him out of ventilator twice, but were unsuccessful as he loses his breathing once the machine support is off. It has been more than 1 and half month into his hospitalization and we are not sure how much it may extend.
The cost of Angioplasty was 100,000 INR (1,551 USD), the open-heart surgery costed 1,000,000 INR (15,513 USD). The cost of ventilator is 30,000 INR (465 USD) a day and he has been on ventilator for 10 days and counting.
Currently we owe 1,300,000 INR (20,168 USD) to Inlaks Budhrani Hospital Pune(and still counting).
After my father retired I am the only source of income for my family of 5 as my mum and wife are housewives and I have a daughter of 8 months to take care of. I am in dire need of money to continue his treatment and all my savings are exhausted. I really need your kindness to tide me through this storm. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will go a long way for my family. We need your help to save him from this situation and get back to his normal life again. So we request you to help us in this dire situation to save his life.
At the moment, even the smallest help counts. In case you aren't able to help at least share it with in your network.
