    Suhas Kambre

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

54-year-old Suhas Kambre is a chronic liver disease patient. He is advised to undergo a liver transplant. This is his only chance to get back to life and be there for this family.

Suhas Kambre was already in turmoil. His wife has kidney failure and she needs dialysis every week. The doctor said there was no time to waste, they had to consider a kidney transplant. Suhas volunteered to donate, and when he went in for an evaluation, the family received the most devastating news – Suhas himself was racing for survival.

“I wanted to donate my kidney because my wife needs a kidney transplant. The pre-transplant evaluation revealed that I have liver cancer, and I need a liver transplant.”

This story has been written from Suhas’ perspective.

Ours is a small family. My wife (Sheetal), my son (Devang) and I used to be happy and content. In 2013, Sheetal was diagnosed with kidney failure. She needs dialysis every week. Every hospital said that she needs a kidney transplant. When the doctor enquired if there was anyone in her family who would be willing to donate, I realized it was too much to ask them.

I wanted to donate, but I battled and won against blood cancer in 1994. I asked the doctor if that was going to be a problem. That’s when we went through the evaluation and found the tumor on my liver.

This is not about one surgery, it is life after the surgery
I’m so worried about Sheetal. I have been saving up for her transplant. I still do not have all the money. Now, my treatment is going to cost me around Rs. 19.5 lakhs. My medicines will cost Rs. 20,000/month. Sheetal’s dialysis bills go up to Rs. 20,000.

Even if I pool all my funds I cannot use it for the transplant. If I do that, we will not have even one rupee left for Sheetal’s weekly dialysis or my son’s school fees or a daily meal.

How you can help
I’m the only earning member of this family. I would have to take a break from work for the transplant. I must think about Sheetal’s surgery, and I must stay alive to care for her and my son. Please, help me get through this liver transplant.

He is under critical treatment and is on the waitlist for the liver transplantation. The cost of the transplant is 19.5 lakhs. This is a huge amount for him. He needs an urgent transplant and there is no option left for him to arrange such huge amount.

Your contribution would keep both alive.
