    Pazhani Shanmugam

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Tax benefits for INR donations will be issued by Love Your Liver Foundation

37 year old Pazhani shanmugam is diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease. Chronic kidney disease, also known as chronic renal failure, is a slow progressive loss of kidney function over a period of several years. Eventually the patient has permanent kidney failure. He’s under Haemodialysis three times a week. Pazhani Shanmugam and his family lives in Savathurpettai in Thiruthani. His family is into agriculture and hence their income is very low. They only get Rs.3000  per month. Pazhani’s father Shanmugam is the bread winner and supports his whole family. He supports his Children, His widowed daughter who has three children and also Pazhani and his wife and three children. As his condition is quite worse he has to undergo a live Kidney transplant. His sister has come forward to be the donor and will donate her Kidney to save his life.

The family is from an underprivileged background and cannot afford the cost of transplantation. Doctors have examined Pazhani and advised Kidney transplantation. This is to be done in Apollo Hospitals, Greams road, Chennai.  Pazhani does not have the funds anymore to even carry on with his dialysis. So far, the family had sold their land and spent a total of 10 lakhs at Ramachandra Hospital for their treatment. The surgery costs almost 8 lakhs and the hospital has given a discount of 2 lakhs. The family needs over 6 lakhs for the treatment. With only one income earner as a farmer in the family, they are not able to go further with the Kidney transplant unless they get the required help. Transplant has to be done at the earliest.
