    This fundraiser will benefit

    Anitha Rani

    from Hyderabad, Telangana


The Patient is suffering from PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease - SCHEMIA) - its a rare disease which spreads rapidly like a virus and eats away the entire leg. Hence, after giving a tough fight with limited research options available on this disease, finally have to accept the Amputation of the leg.

Insights - basically the arteries are blocked by multiple blood clots in both the Legs stopping the blood flow to the feet. while the left leg is completely damaged with 0% blood flow and right leg has only 30% blow flow. As suggested by the doctor - we have undergone 3 surgeries one after the other in processing of saving the leg : We did not have an option to do By-pass Surgery as the left leg has multiple blocks.

1) Thrombolysis - Its a process to drill the Artery which is blocked and try to  dissolve the block (Blood clot) - Unsuccessful.

    Surgery Failed - as the block was very strong. Doctors than tried giving some heavy dosage of  drugs to dissolve the clot directly from where they drilled the artery for no success.

2) Bone Marrow Surgery - Doctors drilled my back bone to take out Bone Marrow and separated the  blood vessels and took that to lab to add some chemicals and injected me on the entire leg to form new blood vessels to carry blood to the lower part of the leg. Failed again. No blood  vessels could form. Reason - Unknown.

3) Oxygen Therapy - After giving some heavy dosage of drugs in the name of Alpostine - I have  than gone through the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber - This Chamber gives pure oxygen to each cell    in the body and helps in curing the wounds without blood flow as well. Put myself under this    for 28 continuous days for no success.

4) Physiotherapy - I have tried almost like 7 to 8 different electronic devices and different currents for curing the wounds and for the blood flow for no success.

Finally - got my left leg Amputated above the Knee.

Today - I am disabled with just one leg. I need each one of your help to stand up and walk using a Artificial Leg. Please help.

In the process of saving my leg - I have spent around 10.5 Lakhs however could not save it.  Now I am falling short of funds to accommodate myself with an artificial leg to walk which is costing around 3.55 Lakhs.

Request each one of you to help me.
Thank you in Advance.
