Help Nithyashree Undergo Renal Transplant

I am Nithyashree a 25 year old resident of India. What started as an episode of typhoid, 2 months later was diagnosed as a complex kidney disease in it’s fifth stage. Since then it has been a struggle to keep up with the piling medical bills. The illness took a massive toll on me, both physically and mentally. So I had to quit my job earlier in February of this year.

We were not anticipating the cost of the treatment to be this high. We have already spent all our savings on the treatment so far and were helped along the way by some close friends as we had to do multiple rounds of plasmapheresis and also an operation to remove both my kidneys as my anti GBM antibodies count was not coming down.

Now as I await for a transplant, Doctors at Madras Medical Mission have stated the first step is to again do plasmapheresis  in order to bring my anti GBM antibodies under control and I need to undergo blood purification through dialysis 3 times a week for another 6 months. I need to undergo 20 sessions of plasmapheresis every alternate day without skipping any sessions. In order to avoid missing any sessions, it is only possible once all the funds are arranged. In the meanwhile I am having to continue to do additional dialysis.

Each Dialysis session costs Rs 1,850 and each plasmapheresis session costs Rs 34,000. The transplant costs another Rs 7 Lakhs. The expenses going forward will be between 15-16 Lakhs. Additionally there will be expenses after the operation as well. Below is the doctor's letter detailing the costs required until my operation from now on.

My dad is an electrical contractor but has barely been able to get any contracts off late and with the real estate market at it’s low point, the signs for recovery seems bleak. I had to put my treatment on hold due to lack of funds and the entire family is stressed and drained both financially and mentally.

With this campaign, I want to reach out to each one of you to help me and my family in these tough times. My parents are trying their level best but I can see the stress on them as receiving financial assistance is very tough.

I have attached the hospital's estimate letter. Request you to please contribute and help me undergo this treatment.

Dear All,
It has been 10 months since my surgery. There has been a lot of changes within me. I have also got admitted a few times because of fluctuation in my creatine levels and stomach issue so, i also underwent endoscopy and colonoscopy  and have been diagnosed with an unknown bacteria in the colon.
Now, i have been prescribed with the tablets for the bacteria.

I hope and pray that all of you and your family are safe during these testing times. Please stay indoors and do not travel outside and please take adequate precautions if you are traveling outside for essentials. Regularly wash your hands. I pray that God sees all of you and your families overcome this pandemic condition.

Thank you all for all your continued prayers, wishes, and generous donations. I will keep you posted on my health progress.

Dear All,

It has been 8 months since my surgery. There has been a lot of changes within me. I have lost quite a lot of weight. I have also got admitted a few times because of fluctuation in my creatine levels.

Over the past month there have been a number of hospital visits including being admitted in the ICU twice. So the expenses continue to mount although I was hoping for it to go down after the surgery.

Dear All,

It's going to be 4 months since my surgery. I have been at home all this while as I was advised against too much interaction with people.It has been a bag of mixed emotions. I am definitely in a happier space but also get worried when small issues arise. Transplant comes with its set of challenges nausea, diarrhea, sleeplessness, etc. I did have an occasion whee I had fever and water retention in the body increases. But thank god it was nothing major and I was able to quickly recover. I still need to be under observation often and need to continue to do a lot of tests to monitor my situation.
Thank you all for all your continued prayers, wishes, and generous donations. I will keep you posted on my health progress. Advances wishes for the New New Year. May god help you get whatever your heart desires.

Thanks & Regards
