Help 11-month-old Kabelish Fight Pneumonia And Breathe Again

11-month-old Kabelish had just learned to say 'Amma' and 'Appa'. His parents and his little sister were eagerly waiting for him to say other words and learn to stand. He was the apple of their eyes. Unexpectedly, life took a drastic turn for Kabelish. He is now in a very critical condition in the ICU battling pneumonia.

Kabelish suffers from pneumonia

Kabelish was active and cheerful until just 20 days ago. He had a high fever and cold. His parents were terrified when he started gasping for breath. They rushed him to the hospital where he was taken to ICU immediately. Doctors said he has pneumonia and he needs ventilation support. Their world, as a family came crushing around them. Kabelish's belly is swollen and his parents Malathi and Karthikeyan are sitting by his side and painfully watching his health deteriorating. His little body is struggling to cope up the pain. It has been 20 days since he first lay in the ICU. Doctors said that he requires 3 more weeks of hospital stay.

"I never thought that I would see my son in such a condition. I can't bear to see him suffering. I thought it was just a fever but every day it is getting worse. Every day he cries out in pain and I'm helpless," - Malathi.

Kabelish's parents are desperate to take him back home

Malathi and Karthikeyan are from Thiruvannamalai and they traveled all the way to Chennai for the treatment.They have left their 5-year-old daughter Madhumita in their relative's place. She is crying over phone everytime they talk to her. She is missing her parents and her little brother. She is too young to understand why are parents are away from her for such a long time.

Father is struggling to save his son

Kabelish has become weak but he is gradually recovering. His parents are desperate to take him back home. The very thought of losing their son leaves them in pain and despair. Karthikeyan has hardly slept and ate these days. Apart from the emotional trauma, he is struggling to cope up with the financial stress.

"I have nothing to sell. How will people give money for interest knowing that I'm only a driver? I 'm begging to everyone I know. Every day I'm running with the medical bills. I can't lose him just because I don't have money. I'm willing to do anything to save him." - Karthikeyan.

Even if he works the whole year, he won't be able to pay the bills

Karthikeyan works as a driver. He works day and night to make the ends meet. Unfortunately, even if he works the whole year, he will not be able to pay his medical bills. They are short of funds but determined to save their son at any cost.

Kabelish needs 3 more weeks of hospital stay.

How you can help

Karthikeyan earns a very meager income. He requires ventilation support for 3 more weeks. Baby Kabelish needs to continue the treatment to survive and live a normal life. They need Rs 7 lakhs for the treatment. Only your contribution can save his life.

Your contribution can give little Kabelish a chance to live his life!
