My name is Priyanka Bajaj and I am starting this fundraiser campaign on behalf of Srinivas Prabhu, who is a family friend and son of my mom's close friend, Mrs. Naina Prabhu.
Srinivas (26), who is based in Bombay, is suffering from chronic kidney failure (CKD) and needs medical assistance for survival.
He was diagnosed with CKD 11 years ago, and in the year 2006, he started his first dialysis treatment under Nephrologist Dr. M.M BAHADUR at Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai. After one and half year of dialysis, the family decided to undergo kidney transplantation for him his mom, Mrs. Naina Prabhu (57) donated one of her kidney's to him in 2007.
Unfortunately, the kidney lasted for only 9 years and Srinivas had an episode of rejection in September 2016. Since then, he is back on dialysis twice a week under the same treating doctor and hospital. He has been advised a second kidney transplant at the earliest as his health is deteriorating. Hence, his father, Mr. Vithaldas Prabhu (60) has decided to donate one of his kidneys to Srinivas.
Unfortunately, the transplant is ABO incompatible kidney transplant and hence the cost of complete surgery is higher than a compatible match. The surgery estimation given by the hospital is approx. INR 12-12.5 Lakhs (excluding complication cost if any), and the hospital letter for the same has been attached.
I am seeking financial help on behalf of Naina aunty and Srinivas, who are presently unable to afford this kidney transplant. To give you a few more details, Srinivas has medical insurance of INR 3 lac, of which INR 2.40 lac has already been utilised for the treatment since September 2016, when he was hospitalized for 10 days. Besides, the family has managed to raise INR 60,000/- thus far from personal finances, and is running short of approx. INR 11,50,000/- (Rupees Eleven lac fifty thousand)
The tentative date of surgery is on 8th June 2017. Renal report and letter from Jaslok Hospital have been attached for your reference. I have also attached Srinivas's picture in the "photo" section.
Further, contributions can also be made directly in the name of Jaslok Hospital. If you wish to contribute via a cheque payment, you can directly reach out to Srinivas (+91 9819870322) or Mrs. Naina Prabhu (+91 9819791640) for details. I am reachable at +91 9930526205.
Thanks and regards
