Support Ana Raissa's Battle for Life

Ana Raissa Da Costa is 29 years old and has been suffering from multiple serious medical complications since the last four months. She has been in and out of the hospital till 1st June 2018 but since then has been completely hospitalized to undergo multiple surgeries to correct holes in the trachea and esophagus. Doctors are very pleased with her fighter spirit but are hoping to find a long term solution for her condition.

From the start of this year till today (19th July 2018), her medical bills are touching INR 25 lakhs. Her immediate family and friends have borrowed money to clear about 50% of the expenses thus far. Family is in immediate need of raising more funds to clear the balance 50% of the payment. In addition, they also need funds to sustain the treatment for the coming weeks.

All funds donated will directly go to Ana's account and will only be used for medical treatment and rehabilitation.

Please refer below the technical note from the doctor handling Ana's case.

This is to state that Ms.Ana Raisa Da Costa, 29 years old female, bearing UHlD No-AHB.0000806648, IP No-AHBIP6303O was admitted under my care on 12/06/2018. She underwent Thoracoscopic decortication for empyema right lung on 05/06/2018. Thereafter she required a surgery for perforation of the esophagus. Adhesions at the trachea resulted in a tracheal defect needing stenting of the trachea.

A colonic conduit stent was also needed to facilitate healing locally. Presently she is being treated for infections in the lung and mediastinum with antibiotics. She is being replenished nutritionally by a feeding jejunostomy.

She requires further treatment for nutritional build up, infection control and local healing of the tracheal and colonic conduit and may require reparative surgery for the same at a later date, if local healing is delayed or if infection worsens.

Dear Supporters, Well-wishers, Friends & Family,
Thanks for your continued prayers and support. On Saturday, 22nd September, Ana was operated on, at Sir Gangaram Hospital, Delhi, by Dr Prof Arvind Kumar & team.
In his words it was one of the most complex cases he has handled in his medical career. There were 3 parts to the surgery. 1)The colon used to reconstruct the esophagus (in the past surgery) had to removed. A bag at the end of the neck has been made to collect the saliva. 2)A plastic surgeon harvested muscle & skin from the chest area to repair the trachea rents. 3)Finally the main surgery was performed.
Ana was taken in at 11:00am on Sat, the surgery was complete at 4:00am on Sunday morning.
Though Ana was quite scared before the surgery, she has been settling well since.
On Monday she was taken off the ventilator & on Tuesday she was moved from the ICU to HDU unit.
Today, she was made to sit in a chair & walk on the treadmill.
With all the prayers, best wishes and support we are hopeful that her recovery will be faster than expected.
A sincere thanks to you for coming forward in our hour of need. May God bless you.
Love, prayers and a grateful heart.
