    This fundraiser will benefit

    Praruj Jain

    from Bangalore, Karnataka

Praruj Jain needs an urgent liver transplant. His father, Kesar is struggling to support him.  
One in a million people have this disease. My son is suffering from Bud Chiari syndrome. The veins that carry blood from the liver have clots, and the blockage causes the liver to swell.

I can’t imagine the pain he must be feeling. I can’t take gastritis and Praruj has been suffering from when he was 6 months old. Praruj was on medicines for nearly a year. The injections were supposed to dissolve the clots. Unfortunately, we found out during November that his condition was deteriorating. In February, our doctor came to us with grave news. Praruj would not survive if without a liver transplant.
 
Praruj went under a transplant on 29th August. Just when the parents thought the worst was behind them, a day after the transplant, he had an unexpected complication. Portal vein thrombosis – a clot in one of the main veins ended up causing damage to his new liver.

Although the doctors have been trying to do everything to save it, the answer is evident.  Luckily, he has found a donor liver- a cadaveric liver with the help of the Narayana Hrudalaya hospital, Bengaluru. where Praruj is undergoing treatment. If they have the funds, Praruj can undergo the transplant immediately. 

Kesar has exhausted over Rs. 23 Lakhs so far on his treatment, and maxed out my insurance policy. They need Rs. 12.5 Lakhs for this surgery, and do not have the means to come up with the funds. Without the money, he cannot have this surgery.
