Please Help save my son!! My son Gautam Grover, 34 years old, father of an 8-year-old girl met with an unfortunate accident on 29th August 2016 which caused severe cervical injury on his neck. He has been admitted at Indian Spinal Injury Centre, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi since 31st August 2016. Due to the accident, his body has been paralyzed below the neck and he has suffered major cardiac arrest that caused further deterioration of his health. He is unable to breathe on his own and is on ventilator support.
He has been sole bread earner of the family and I have used all financial resources to cover for his hospitalization expenses till now but considering his level of injury at C3 – C4, he will need ventilator support for a longer duration. He needs an effective rehabilitation program which is specialized care available in very few hospitals in India such as this one where he is admitted.
The average treatment for his hospitalization is around INR 5 Lacs per month and any unforeseen procedures will cost us over and above this. I have spent more than 34 lakhs in his treatment so far which includes loans from all possible means and his medical insurance of 3 lakhs.
This hospital bill has been paid for INR19,90,000 against a till date bill of INR 30,68000. I have also paid 1 lakh bill in his earlier hospitalization where he was taken immediately after injury for initial diagnosis and was admitted for 2 days. In addition to this, medicine expenses, lab and diagnostic test charges, ventilator rental, and physiotherapy expenses are being paid out of pocket on a daily basis as the hospital is not favor of charging this in-patient billing due to the significant outstanding bill. I am 60-year-old and my son was the whole sole care taker of our family thus, I am unable to cope up with hospitalization expenses any further.
He needs complete treatment and rehabilitation which is available only at the Spinal Injuries hospital to recover his body mobility to maximum use and we have been advised to purchase a ventilator considering his injury level which will cost INR 4.5 lacs in addition to hospital estimate that has been provided.
Please contribute to save a human life and help save our family!
Do pray for my son and May God bless you for your contribution and blessings!
