Help 5 days old boy fighting with Respiratory distress

The following appeal is written on behalf of Chandrakanth, father of New Born baby boy (6 days old).

My name is Chandrakanth and my wife's name is Swetha. My 6-days-old boy is suffering from respiratory distress. I work as a private teacher in Kurnool. I earn Rs.500 everyday but lose my daily wages if do not go for work. I miss work since I have to accompany my wife to take care of new born boy .

Boy has severe respiratory distress, at present boy is on PSV mode of ventilation. He is under observation in Intesive Care Unit.  I spent over a two lakhs for his treatment but now I am helpless and has nothing left to manage his treatment. It is costing me 30,000 rs per day for the treatment.

How You Can Help
Now I have exhausted my funds and need help. He is undergoing treatment in Fernandez Hospital pvt ltd, Hyderabad.  We need over 6.5 lakhs for his treatment and then he needs to come for regular checkups.

I have hope to receive support from you as this is my last option.

You can reach out to Chandrakanth, father of the baby boy on +91-9966875268.

Dear Supporters,

I am Sudhakar, a Milaap Open fellow in Bengaluru. I spoke to Chandrakanth, the baby’s father on 15th September.

The baby has been  named Karthikeya. He got discharged from Fernandez Hospital 2 months after birth, when he was much more stable. Karthikeya was on ventilator support for a total of 20 days while he was in the hospital. His condition was much more stable at the time of discharge compared to his condition at the time of birth.  

They managed to raise the rest of the funds from family and friends and ensured that Karthikeya gets the treatment needed. The parents were staying at a rented house while they were in Hyderabad. They returned to Kurnool last month. 

Because he’s  a premature baby, his health is still sensitive. On account of changing weather, his breathing problems have returned and now he has been  admitted in Rainbow Hospital, Kurnool a couple of days back. The consulting doctor  said that he is showing symptoms of pneumonia. He is currently under treatment and care at the hospital. Let us pray for Karthikeya’s complete recovery and hope that his parents are able to get through this tough time quickly.
