    Adrin Leo

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Our 11-year-old son Adrin Leo was playing and dancing around making everyone smile until the 25 Jan 2021.

He had a fever and was taken to the hospital, but the doctor’s words left us shocked. We could not believe he had been diagnosed with Severe Dengue with Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome. Within a very short span of time, he went into refractory shock with severe thrombocytopenia and was moved to a mechanical ventilator. Multiple plasma exchanges and Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy were done to revive his liver and kidneys.

After 7 days of treatment he was weaned off from the ventilator and kept on Non-Invasive Ventilator, but his kidney & liver dysfunction was persistent and needed continuous support. Doctors were glad that his platelets started increasing and he slowly started responding to the treatment provided.

We rejoiced and thanked God for providing us with positive news but our happiness didn’t last long. There was an onset of new bacterial infection and his health started deteriorating, taking him back into the ventilator. He might require prolonged stay in the PICU and dialysis for his renal failure. The hospital has given an estimate of Rs 25 lakhs for further treatment.

Our family comprising of a single breadwinner has already spent over Rs 35 lakhs through support from relatives, friends, and contributions from kind-hearted individuals in our known circles. Dealing with this for over a month has been extremely traumatic for the entire family and beyond means as each day's treatment is extremely expensive yet we are desperate to somehow continue his treatment and give him a chance to live, for which we seek your financial assistance.

Adrin is a happy child with a lot of dreams of becoming a dancer and it breaks our hearts to see him suffer like this. Your generous support will give Adrin a better chance of life, as the doctors battle day and night to save him

"Pls share this with your near and dear ones to help our child.  Don't feel bad if you are unable to contribute. You can still keep him and our family in your prayers. Regards,Glory"
