I have very fond memories of my childhood. Although we weren’t very well off, we made the best of what we had. My parents worked hard on the farm in our village while my sister and I ran around playing together all day long. Asha and I were born only a year apart, so we were inseparable. Soon, we started going to school together. We were so full of energy when we were younger. Then, things began to change. When she was just 5-years-old, she had severe pain in her limbs. Before we knew it, she couldn’t walk anymore. I grew up to live a normal life, while my sister was confined to a wheelchair. But that didn’t change anything between us, she remained my best friend.

I soon moved to Bangalore and started working as part of maintenance in a company to support my family. I carried with me many dreams and aspirations, but life had other plans for me. I was only 25-years-old when the doctors told me that both my kidneys were failing. I didn’t have long to live without a transplant. My parents already had my sister and her treatment to worry about. I didn’t want to add to that. I was so scared, but the first thing my sister said when she found out was that she will give me her kidney to save me. That meant everything to me. Finally, my father donated his kidney but within two days, my body rejected the organ.

I’m now 29. I’ve been living on dialysis for 4 years, but now, along with my kidneys, my liver is also giving up on me. My parents have done so much for me till now. I know they can’t afford another transplant, so I keep telling them to stop my treatment. But the doctors have told me to have hope and keep fighting. I’ve moved back home to my village now. I can’t work even if I wanted to because I’m in so much pain all the time. The only thing that keeps me going is my family’s support, but how long will I be able to go on like this without a transplant? My parents are old and my sister needs constant help and care. What will happen to them if I don't make it? I spend all my days troubled by these thoughts. I have a real chance of getting better but no matter how hard we try, we just can’t afford 32 lakhs for the kidney transplant. I have to live to take care of my family. I’m all they’ve got.
