I am fundraising to help Fund A Liver Transplant Operation


Dear all,
Those of you who know me personally may know that my father hasn't been well for the last one year.
The first signs of sickness began in March 2015, he started loosing weight and feeling weak. We started taking him to the doctors, a long series of consultations & tests began. Because I live and work in Mumbai, it was getting difficult for me to do the rounds with them in Kolkata. So I asked my parents to shift base to Mumbai. From May this year his condition started deteriorating rapidly. He has been hospitalised for long stretches for about 6 times in the last 9 months, currently he is in Mumbai's Global Hospitals.


In the last one year he has become half of what he used to be and physically very weak. His disease is Auto Immune Hepatitis where his body's immune system is attacking his liver as a foreign body. This is aggravated by Hepatitis E which is a water borne virus, as if this is not enough he is also suffering from chronic liver disease which causes anorexia and fluid accumulation in stomach and feet. So the fluid has to be pumped out of his body artificially. 


Looking at his photos you may think that he is old, but he is just 59. In one year this horrible disease has totally incapacitated my Baba. Finally after exhausting all other medical means, the doctors have suggested liver transplantation. My mother who is 50, is going to be the donor. I am their only child, me and my husband have been pushing our limits to care for my father. But this liver transplantation and the post care is such an expensive procedure that it has gone beyond our means. 


I keep seeing crowd sourcing initiatives and how it completely changes people's lives for the better. So I thought of reaching out to my friends and well wishers for your help. Please help us raise the funds for my father's operation and help save him. 
The operation is scheduled for end of December 2015.


I would be ever grateful for every little help that comes our way.


Yours, 


Jaita

Hi All,

My beloved father passed away today morning, 2 years post liver transplant. He contracted pneumonia 10 days back and deteriorated very fast and went into septic shock on his 62nd birthday,21st January . This was an incredible roller coaster and thanks to the transplant  he could see my daughter born and grow up into a toddler and also spend quality time amongst his loved ones . Requesting for prayers for his peace . He passed peacefully in my arms with his loved ones around and hearing songs that he loved. I am immensely grateful to each and every person in this campaign who helped us immensely and got him back from door of death twice and his incredible doctors who fought with him for past two years and also made his last few days comfortable and painless. He was a resilient fighter and even this time he put up a painful and tough battle . He didn’t want to go but his body gave up. I’m sure he transitioned into a peaceful painless place and now has became immortal for us. Now no one can take him away from me anymore.
Thanking each one of you on his and my family’s behalf.
Cheers!

Dear Supporters,

Thank you, everyone, for your immense support.
Baba has been more or less stable for the past month. There are minor bumps that still fraught our way like his medicine induced skin infection that requires regular dressing and also his very expensive medications but there is nothing better than to have him with us at home.
His intense nursing and physio care continue and we are praying hard that we all and especially his return to normalcy soon.
Thanks a lot.
Regards
