We are friends of Dr Deepa Chockalingam, a brilliant doctor who has spent her career working with senior citizens and the less privileged. Deepa is critically ill, having suffered a ventricular septal rupture. She is in the CCU in Kauvery Hospital, Chennai, and is suffering from liver and kidney failure as a result of the heart issue. She is on ECMO life support and the doctors have recommended cardiac transplantation. Her medical costs so far have crossed Rs. 2800000. Her classmates from school and medical college have raised Rs 17 lakh. The cost of the transplant and treatment will cross Rs 30 lakh. As Deepa spent much of her career working with the less fortunate, she has no savings to be able to pay for this. Her friends are trying to raise Rs 50 lakh to pay for her treatment. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.
