“He loves boxing. Despite the injury, he can’t wait to go back to the ring.”

14-year-old Saineeth was fighting a boxing match when he suffered a grave injury to the skull. He was immediately rushed to the hospital and an emergency surgery was performed. Due to the severe injury, he also suffered major nerve damage. His first surgery proved to be ineffective and he had to undergo a second surgery. Shortly after the second surgery the doctors told Saineeth’s parents that even the second surgery had failed and that he would need another surgery in order to recover completely.

His head is swollen and he’s constantly in a lot of pain

After his major brain injury while boxing, he went into his first surgery in January 2017. The 2nd corrective surgery for bone replacement was done after 3 months. But after some days the bone started melting now there is no bone on left side. When this happened, the doctors suggested implanting an artificial bone, which requires a third surgery to take place.

Due to the injury and nerve damage he got during the boxing match, the blood circulation to his skull is still not normal and hence a side of his head is always swollen. Saineeth suffers constant throbbing headaches and an immense pressure on his head. His medical condition doesn’t allow him to live a carefree life that a 14-year-old boy enjoys. It also affects his studies and activities, thus frustrating him.

In spite of his fragile state, Saineeth wants to attend school.

“He’s a very active kid. Even in this state, he insists on going to the school. The doctors have also advised the same since school makes him so happy.”

Saineeth is an ambitious and outgoing student. He’s currently in the 10th grade, which a crucial year for his academics. While he was hospitalised for his surgery, he missed the normalcy of life he used to enjoy earlier. Despite his injury, he wants to continue his studies, and to interact with his friends at school. Understanding his need to feel a sense of being normal, his doctors also advised him to continue with his school, while undergoing the necessary treatment. Luckily for Saineeth, his school authorities are being very supportive and helpful.

Mahesh’s financial condition doesn’t allow him to spent so much on Saineeth’s treatment

Even though his family, doctors and peers are being very supportive of him during his treatment and recovery, the biggest hurdle his father Mahesh faces is that of a severe financial crunch. He has the business of selling eggs and makes only barely enough to manage the household income. His mother also works at a hospital, in order to contribute to the household income.

How you can help

For the first two surgeries, Mahesh and his wife Uma spent all their savings and now are not left with any more funds to pay for Saineeth’s treatment. All Mahesh and Uma care about is seeing their son healthy and out of danger for good. But given their bleak financial conditions, affording this surgery on their own is a far cry.

In order for Saineeth to survive, he needs to receive the necessary treatment, along with a third Cranioplasty surgery. Only your help can make this a reality. Your contribution can make all the difference in this bright young boy’s life by giving him a second chance at life.
