Help my father fight Covid-19 Pneumonia

My Name is Venu Udayanan and I am here to raise funds for the treatment of my father Udayanan G aged 61 who was admitted to the MGM healthcare Pvt Limited in Aminjkarai Chennai on the September 8, 2020 . We had to rush him to ER with complaints of breathlessness  and severe cold for already a week. My father had no other symptoms like fever, abdominal pain or even a sore throat.
A CT scan of the chest revealed COVID pneumonia with a very low score. COVID 19 sample sent on the 8th of September came back POSITIVE. He was only on the Oxygen mask and supportive medication. A couple of days later when he was not showing any improvement but struggling more to breathe, A second CT scan was done where it showed severe COVID pneumonia and severity score of 34/40
My father is placed on full ventilator support due to his worsening respiratory condition. With his lungs not really supporting him we also had to elect Venovenous ECMO. Its been 24 days already since he was admitted and the doctors are expecting him to be in the ICU for another few weeks until further recovery.
The cost of the treatment has already crossed 27lakhs as of today 1 October 2020. Of which 3.5lakhs was covered by Insurance
Being the only son in the family I have tried my best to cover the cost of the treatment. But now I am at a situation where I have to come to you friends/family and dear kind hearts to help me with this fight to save my father and bring him back home. The road to recovery is not an easy one and unfortunately costs a lot of money. At his present condition we are expecting at least another 40 Lakhs to pay the hospital to ensure my father is given the best of treatments. I will be forever indebted to you for all the help and prayers you are showering for my father. I am also attaching all reports and hospital statements pertaining to my father’s illness.

In case you are not able to help. Please don’t forget a small prayer for my father. For right now I am at a stage where I need all your prayers.
