Story

Prabir Kr. Thakur, my maternal uncle, was suffering a problem to walk & talk freely since 2001. On 2001, he was diagnosed as hemi-Parkinson’s by Dr. P.K.Saha, neurologist. He was in regular treatment of Parkinson’s since 2003. By the time he suffered from decreased right arm swing, slowness in right upper limb and change in handwriting (almost illegible). As a result of all this he got a handicapped certificate from the govt. of west Bengal with 75% disability. It was a shock to all of us at that very moment. In the year of 2013 my uncle along with his wife went to M.S.Ramaiah institute of neurosciences, Bangalore.
He was undergone deep brain stimulation (DBS) by Dr. Ravi Gopal Verma on 03/04/2013. Having no option in our hand we were agreed for the operation at that time. By somehow we all were cope with the situation and my uncle was able to behave like normal person again after the successful placement of battery in his head as well as heart.


Just we were thinking that vivacious moment would come & they were happy to overcome their fears and moved on to start a new, happy life with the family disastrous took place last month. Suddenly my uncle had undergone freezing episodes with a problem regarding swallowing. In a hurry we ran to Bangalore to doctor and after check-up it was revealed to us that he was presented in Bangalore with severe bradykinesia, rigidity. On examination the battery appears dead and he was advised for a battery replacement which cost is approximately 7 lakhs.

My maternal uncle was an ex-home tutor and my aunt is an anganwadi worker. They are blessed with a 11 year daughter. The monthly income of the family is 4500 rupees. They are totally insolvent now due to the huge cost of previous operation as well as the post medication maintenance. The condition of my uncle is deteriorating day by day but we are in a great trouble to collect this huge amount of money.

An act of kindness from your side can bring back my maternal uncle in normal life again and put a smile in the face of his family members.
