Help Francis Xavier save his son!

Allwin Francis, a diploma holder aged 22, son of Mr. Francis Xavier- one of our beloved security guards (First Man Services) at IIM Trichy LRC, had a head injury while at work. He works as a lab technician in Jyothi institute of Technology, a diploma college in Bangalore. Without realising the magnitude of the injury, Allwin continued to work for the next 3 days in the college. Over the weekend, his roommates realized his condition getting worsening as he complained about severe headache. He was immediately admitted to nearby hospital where after checking his condition through MRI scans etc, they learned that he is diagnosed with a condition called "Cerebral Edema" - they referred him to other major hospitals. With most hospitals refused to admit him citing the graveness of his condition, he was finally admitted to Health Hospital under the conditions that the treatment may not guarantee his survival. After a continuous treatment for 3-4 days, doctors now declared him out of danger. But his memory is affected and will take about six months for him to return to normal condition. As of now, He is continued to treated and require to be hospitalized for 10 more days. Mr. Francis had barely met all the medical expenses. He has already spent more than Rs1,50,000 by taking loans till now for medical expences. Doctors say that his son should be in the hospital for 10 more days and the cost per each day including medicines is Rs.5000. We the students at IIM Trichy are starting a fund rising campaign to help Francis Xavier meet the expenses . We hope there are many kind hearts who are ready to donate for a genuine cause. Let us all wish Allwin a fast recovery.

Note: Cerebral edema is a dangerous condition where the brain's water content rises, causing the pressure to rise in the skull. Unlike swelling in other parts of the body, where there is room for extra fluid (think of a sprained ankle), the brain is protected by a hard, inflexible skull that can expand very little. So, if the brain begins to swell because of illness or injury, its oxygen supply can quickly be cut off as the blood vessels become squeezed. Cerebral edema is a medical emergency that can even lead to death as brain cells become damaged and die.
There are many causes of cerebral edema. A head trauma, like in a car accident or a fall, can cause the brain to be knocked about and injured, leading to swelling.
