We are writing to you today because I truly believe in you all and know that you will genuinely consider this request.
This is about our dear son ATHARVA PAWAR. My family welcomed a handsome baby (Atharva Pawar) in OCT 2015.
While we were celebrating Atharva’s 2nd birthday, what transpired us was extremely shocking and we were disheartened.
Our son ATHARVA has a Bilateral Profound Hearing loss. This means He cannot hear with both his ears to the extent of 100 percent.
As soon as we coped up with this news we went for expert advice and in the process also met several such cases who have faced similar problems.
At the first time we bought hearing aid and then we are regularly taking him for speech therapy session /language stimulation programe which will go on for next 3or 4years which forms major part of this treatment.
Our only hope is that this ailment has a proven and we are working towards the same.
This is called a Cochlear Implant surgery wherein One his ear will be implanted artificially post which he will be able to lead more than a normal life.
This needs to be done around MAY 2019 when baby Atharva will turn 3.6 years old.
The urgency and need of undertaking this treatment / therapy immediately is that he will get a chance to grow up as a normal baby does. That means he will be able to develop his vital sensory organs just like other children of his age. As you know it starts from being able to say his first words Aai and Baba.
This being a defect right from birth is not covered under any Mediclaim Policy and hence we are left with the only option of raising the funds through our relatives’ friends and well-wishers.
The expenditure for this entire procedure is in the range of INR 18 lakhs which need to be arranged in the next 2 months.
It is a humongous amount and at the same time the time period in hand is very less. Me and my wife Priyanka are a hard-working young couple who come from a very humble background and already spend a big amount
INR 150000/- for treatment.
Ajit and Priyanka sincerely request you to extend your helping hand and support us in this ordeal which will help Baby Atharva to grow up and lead a normal life.
We will be grateful to you thought out our lives and thus sincerely request you to extend your support as per your wish.
Let us help as much as we can and make this happen.
Please reach out to us in case you have any questionsLet our Atharva hear his mothers voice first time in his life.
Ajit and Priyanka Pawar
