    Gazala Khanum

    from Davangere, Karnataka

With all my due respect, this story has been written to bring some urgent concern about my cousin's friend Ms. Gazala Khanam. 

She has met with a road accident while traveling from Bangalore via bus. During the journey, the bus broke down due to some mechanical issues and was parked roadside. While the bus was under repair, Ms. Gazala and most of the passengers had got down for a break. Unfortunately, all of a sudden the bus was hit by a speeding truck from behind.

This accident caused the bus wheel to roll over this girl's left leg crushing it on the spot. She was rushed to SS Institute of Medical Science, Davangere under an emergency situation.

On the day of admission, her BP had dropped so low that her family was asked to be prepared for the worst. But luckily after blood transfusion (four bottles), the BP recovered, and she was prepared for the surgery. Unfortunately, her leg was crushed flat and there was no chance of saving it. Doctors amputated her leg from the thigh. It has been a week now since her accident, but she is again under critical condition. Now she is suffering from RTA (Renal tubular acidosis) and severe infection (Sepsis with MODS). Yesterday she has been transferred to KMC, Manipal for further treatment.

Ms. Gazala belongs to a poor family, and they have no good source of income. Her father passed away, and she is lead by her mother who is a housewife. As a result of this unexpected and significant medical expenses, they are experiencing extreme challenges in arranging funds. They cannot bear the cost of this medical treatment. So I request you to help them financially so that she gets proper treatment.

As of now, my cousin has spent approx. Rs 2,00,000 at SS Hospital. And he is in need of another Rs 4,50,000 to be paid at KMC, Manipal. If you could help us with whatever you can, we would be most appreciative. We shall be grateful to you for your contribution. And thank you so much for taking the time to consider this request.
