Amyloid is an abnormal protein that is usually produced in the bone marrow and can be deposited in any tissue or organ.
This is my friend Deepthi, whom I know from college days and all friends use to envy her as she was very bold and confident in whatever she use to do, She use to support her mom since very young age alongside her studies, as her mom was a single parent. Times passing by we lost connect for few years but got in touch an year back where she is in complete distress and pathetic condition in terms of her health due to the below mentioned Chronic condition. Knowing her personally felt really moved and got angry on time how it can be so rude on anyone and how pathetic it can turn the life upside down for anyone. Below is the request from her ( which Iam sharing as is without any edits). Request to see if anyone can help in anyways or share this message to your friends incase if you are not able to help at the moment. For any questions you may DM me - Ratna 😞😔
Below is the genuine message from her and the details given are also directly from her, you may feel free to extend your donations directly to her and can share a screenshot with me only if comfortable.
“I am Deepthi Voolapalli fighting a rare disease called Amyloidosis (also called Amyloid Disease) at the age of 38
Amyloid is an abnormal protein that is usually produced in the bone marrow and can be deposited in any tissue or organ. It is rare disease and can run in families. The disease is so brutal that only 5% of the patients survive with the disease and very costly treatment is involved.
Unfortunately, I am suffering with this rare disease. I am a daughter, and a wife. Also, I am a mother of an 8-year-old kid. As of now I am bedridden and frequently visiting doctors for surgeries and undergoing treatment.
Treatment is very expensive, and tests are done every week to assess the condition. Also, my eye condition detoriated lately as i could barely see with one eye currently. Surgery is set be done. All these are very costly affair, and we have spent around 30 - 40 lakhs for the treatment. Leading life with these expenses is a big burden for us as we have exhausted with our savings
Therefore, we are asking for donations to help me with the medical expenses and other financial obligations, including my daily living expenses throughout these times of my life. We know that times are hard for everyone. Any support you can offer at this critical time will be greatly appreciated.
If you cannot donate at this time, please assist us in sharing this. Sharing is free, but it can help us connect with more people who can give to this fundraiser. No amount is too small or too big. Give as much as you decide from your kind heart and we will be grateful to you.
Thankyou in advance for your contribution. You have no idea how much it means to us to have your support
We are trying to do just a drop in the ocean, if we all come together there a lot that we can do and bring some hope in my friends life 🙏🏻
