As of 24th June, the hospital bill amount was Rs. 32.41 Lacs. The daily incremental hospital expense is around Rs. 1 Lac. Such high expenses are impossible to bear for a middle class family like ours. Arup is only 36 years old and he is a lawyer by profession. He is the sole bread earner for the family of five members including me, our son and Arup’s parents. We contemplated on moving Arup to a government hospital without compromising the quality of medical care. However, his current condition does not permit a transfer.
Our friends and family and Arup’s colleagues have been very supportive. With their help and insurance coverage (Rs. 6 Lacs) we shall be able to collate Rs. 26 Lacs. The next step is to liquidate our assets, which unfortunately will take some time.
Doctors could not tell us for how long Arup will in ventilator support. They could only state that the recovery is a very long process, it will take a lot of time.
Under these helpless circumstances, unable to think of any viable alternative, I humbly appeal to each of you to help us continue Arup’s treatment and save his life.
