    Dibya Ranjan Behera

    from Bhubaneswar, Odisha

My husband Dibya Ranjan Behera, is 38 years old. Fondly known as Babu, he is a caring son, doting husband, loving father and helpful friend. We got married a year ago and were blessed with a baby boy on 3rd April, 2021. I was very happy until COVID 19 shattered my beautiful family.

Dibya tested positive for COVID on 26th April, 2021.  He was on medication and home quarantine. His fever continued and he was admitted to Rudra hospital on 2nd May, 2020 and on 7th May he was shifted to Apollo Hospital, Bhubaneswar, where he was in the isolation ward for 2 days post which he was shifted to NIV ICU(HDU) on 9th May and on 17th May he was shifted to Ventilator due to 80 percent lungs damage. On 27th May, the Doctors said that the body is not responding and he needed ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) support.  His office arranged for airlifting on 29th May but as he reached the airport the oxygen saturation became very low and he could not be airlifted and was returned to the hospital. After his health stabilized, he was shifted to Sum Ultimate Hospital, Bhubaneswar for ECMO Treatment with a lungs damage of 90 percent. He is currently being treated at Sum Ultimate, Bhubaneswar. Initially he was responding well to the treatment but now the doctors have actually asked for a lung transplant.

The only course of action left is Lung Transplant as the next step. It has now become essential to his survival. Since there is no ECMO support available at the moment we are forced to take him to a facility either in Chennai or Hyderabad. He needs to be airlifted to one of the location immediately for further treatment.

I want him to survive, and this comes with a huge financial burden and stress. I have exhausted all his health insurance amounts and his entire savings. He is the sole bread earner of our family. I and our 3 months old child is helpless at this moment and seeking to your support.

The projected costs involved in the operation will be:
•       ECMO supported Airlift to an ECMO+Lung Transplant facility - Rs. 30-40 Lacs
•       Daily ICU+ECMO charges at a hospital (30 days x Rs 2-3 Lacs) - 60 Lacs
•       Lung Transplant - Rs. 90 Lacs and upwards
•       Miscellaneous - Can’t really put a number to it
Estimated treatment duration: 2 months and upwards.

Estimated Cost(Minimum): Rs 1.5  Crores and upwards
This is considering he is in critical care support for a minimum duration of 2 months.

Please help our Hero survive as our 3 months old baby would like to see his father back. I need him. We need him. He needs to survive. This is a desperate plea from me and our child to save him.

Please make this MIRACLE happen.

Please help us. Please invest in his health.

Please keep him in your prayers !

Much Gratitude,
Prativa Priyadarshini
