For people of our generation, tuberculosis was the worst thing that could happenAnantha and Swaroopa, parents of a 23-year-old Abhilash and a 22-year-old younger brother, were terrified when their son was diagnosed with tuberculosis. During their time, TB was a killer disease, similar to cancer. The doctor assured them it was curable with new age medicines. For 10 days, Abhilash was on medicines.
What we thought was a cure for a disease was actually killing him
Nobody expected this situation. Abhilash felt very sick. He stopped going to work. He had just joined, and his sickness caused him to take leave. The pain was so intense that he collapsed and is now in the ICU of the hospital.
When you are in trouble and need help the most, everyone disappears from the sceneAnantha is a supervisor in a pharmacy. With Rs. 25000 salary he has been caring for his family and educating his children. He does not have much to save every month. Currently, he has been matched as a liver donor for Abhilash. The liver transplant needs to be done as soon as possible to save Abhilash's life. The cost has been estimated to be Rs. 30 lakhs. Post surgery, he needs a kidney transplant and alternative drug for TB which will work safely to cure his TB issue.
Abhilash does not have much time on his hands. Your contribution is the only chance for his survival.
