Aravindakshan P. worked as a studio manager & professional graphic designer at RK Swamy BBDO. In 2008, after he quit his job and was pursuing something on his own, he met with a paralyzing accident and was diagnosed with Cervical Stenosis. It’s a degenerative bone disease that can strike to anyone,at anytime, and leave them paralyzed, in constant physical pain. Aravindan’s prolonged treatment for this disease and therapy costed him all his money, his dreams, as well as the comfort of his friends and family.
In May 2010, he underwent an operation for cervical stenosis at Shri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences in Bangalore. The surgery was unsuccessful, and left him completely paralyzed. For the past 5 years, he has been lying alone on a bed at Hestia Medicare, in Kochi, completely dependent on his caregivers.
But Aravindan still has hope. He knows he can get back up on his feet. With better treatment and physiotherapy, Doctors are confident he can. The cost of the treatment is about 9 lacs and the cost of the recovery & rehabilitation is about 6 lacs. Your contribution, however small, will make a big difference in his path to recovery and help him be self-reliant again
HOW MUCH MONEY ARE WE SEEKING TO RAISE?
We want to raise Rs. 15,00,000 (Rupees Fifteen Lakhs) in total for the treatment and rehabilitation program.
HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED?
(Update: We spoke to Aravindan, and he told us that he may not be in a position to shift to Delhi for the treatment, so we are evaluating other hospitals in Kerala that can match up to ISIC standards. Stay tuned for more updates.)
We are in talks with a few hospitals in Delhi & Kerala for the operation and the rehabilitation. The money we will raise will be used for the following purposes:
- Transportation from Kerala to ISIC, New Delhi (if possible)
- Medical treatment & operation
- Rehabilitation & post-op therapy
- Three months of post-recovery support
