Save this Life!
My name is Rohith Chigullapally and I am here to raise funds for my father Amarender Chigullapally who is 53 years old. He lives in Hyderabad, Telangana with his children & spouse.
He was troubled by the avalanche of issues that this COVID pandemic has brought along.
Now, COVID has disrupted our family and put him in a critical condition. He is admitted in Sunshine Hospitals, Secunderabad, Telangana. Currently he is on ventilator for the past 3 days and now doctors are saying with his current medical condition he won't be able to survive much longer just on ventilator support as his disease is still progressing and his lungs were completely damaged.
The best possible option we have now for saving him is start ECMO treatment and prepare him for Lung Transplantation.
Until now, we have spent about Rs. 17,00,000. We've arranged amount from insurance, savings & loans. In the next 20 days, we need Rs. 40,00,000 more for his ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) support which is the only course of action left with a near-certain Lung Transplant as the next step. ECMO support will relieve him of the ventilator and give his lungs a chance to heal. It has now become essential to his survival.
We want him to survive, but this comes with a huge financial burden and stress. The projected costs involved in the operation are:
• Daily ICU+ECMO charges at a hospital (30 days x Rs 2-3 Lacs) - 60 Lacs
Lung Transplant - Rs. 60 Lacs and upwards
• Post transplant hospitalisation (25 days x 1.5L) - 37.5 Lacs
• Miscellaneous - Can’t really put a number to it
Estimated treatment duration: 2 months and upwards.
Estimated Cost(Minimum): Rs 2 Crores and upwards
This is considering he is in critical care support for a minimum duration of 2 months.
