Josephine Doesn't Recognise Her Young Children After An Accident

Ask for an update


Josephine had an accident that has injured her brain. She no longer seems to have any memory of herself and her family. The doctors have given hope that she will get better – provided she has an operation in the skull to prevent infections in her brain.

Josephine and her family really need better days
Life changed drastically for the family after Josephine's surgery
Josephine's 3-year-old son Abel is very confused. His mother – the one who took care of him all his life – now simply ignores him and pinches him when he comes close. He tries to sit on her lap but she pushes him away and never says anything to him. His sister has been sent away to his aunt's house and his father looks very worried all the time.

The accident on March 16 changed Abel and his sister, Anna's life forever. Josephine was returning home from her mother's house on her scooter when she was hit by another vehicle. The police found her on the road, took her to the hospital and informed the family. Josephine was three months pregnant at the time.

Josephine gave birth to her baby which died in eight days. But the worst of it is that of all that happened, Josephine remembers nothing. When she finally came to, she didn't recognise anyone. She has difficulty speaking and only manages to mumble unintelligibly. She has violent outbursts and for her caretakers' and her own safety is kept tied to the bed.

Josephine has had 7 surgeries and a childbirth and she is still not out of danger 

While what hurts him the most is his innocent children's shock at their mother's apathy and aggression – Antony has worked himself in heavy debts trying to save Josephine. He has already spent over Rs 30 lakhs on treatment – liquidating all their savings and gold. It was money he saved working long hours in the Middle East for his children's education.

Josephine is showing some signs of improvement. She was in a coma when her baby was born, but now she is awake and able to move. Sometimes, she even smiles at the children and the sun comes out from behind despair. She even talks when she feels calm and responds when called. But it is very clear to her family that she does not recognise them.

Josephine's two children Anna and Abel are waiting for their mother to finally recognise them

Now that she is somewhat stable, the doctors have recommended a cranioplasty – or a reconstruction of her skull that will protect her from further injury and infections. They believe that the surgery will also bring down her violent outbursts and calm her. But by now, Antony is a broken man, emotionally and financially spent.

How you can help
Antony cannot afford a hospital anymore, so he brought Josephine home and kept a nurse to care for her. Even now, he has to work and earn to put food on the table for his family. Also, he makes sure Josephine gets all the medicines she needs – though they are expensive. Her check-ups alone cost about 10,000-15,000 per visit so he has been unable to take her for one for the last month.

Antony has two young children and a whole life ahead of him. Contribute to help him save Josephine.
