Help Gunesh fight kidney failure

Gunesh’s Struggle With Kidney Failure

Our dear friend Gunesh Deshpande is seeking urgent help in his fight against dual kidney failure.

Dual kidney failure seriously restricts and limits him in his daily activities. Despite this, Gunesh strives to live his life to the fullest and we wish to support him in doing so.

He is just 42 years old and lives in Nagpur. He is the sole working member of his family of 4 and even today, diligently attempts to continue his employment. His employer is kindly supporting him by continuing his employment, however, this is not enough to cover medical and home expenses. Furthermore, he needs to provide for his father, who is paralyzed and needs support and medical care.

Gunesh’s monthly dialysis expenses amount to INR 40,000/- and the organ transplant will need funds upto INR 20-25 Lakhs.

We appeal to you for urgent monetary assistance of any denomination.

Dear Donors,

Gunesh expresses his heartfelt gratitude to all of you for having contributed in this fund raiser created to assist in his fight against dual kidney failure treatment and organ transplant.

On the current status of his health - his thrice weekly dialysis continues. He is as yet awaiting a cadavaric transplant having registered with the ZTCC (Zonal Transplant Coordination Committee), Nagpur, India which a  state government undertaking that executes the organ transplant process in Nagpur, India.

Overall Gunesh's health is stable. Having suffered a fistula failure, he is required to undergo a surgery but as India is currently under lockdown and confinement on account of COVID-19, the surgery has been postponed as medical resources and personnel are diverted to deal with the current national and global health crisis. It is likely that the surgery will be scheduled in June. Further updates will be shared in due course.

Thank you once again for your generous contribution in this fundraiser and for the wishes and prayers for Gunesh. It is heart warming to witness these gestures of genuine care and concern.

Best Regards,
Smita

"Here is a quick update on Gunesh since the fundraising started on August 30, 2019:

Gunesh’s doctors noticed unstable levels of sodium, potassium and creatinine which are indicators of deteriorating health. Potassium fluctuations in particular pose a risk of heart attack. Fortunately, with timely medical advice and change in medication, he is now stable. He was undergoing dialysis twice weekly which has now been taken up to thrice weekly as prolonged water retention was causing buildup of urea resulting in body itching, breathlessness, general nausea and insomnia. The permanent catheter which was inserted since last 10 months for dialysis purpose needed to be removed due to danger of infection. Gunesh now undergoes dialysis through an arteriovenous fistula since October 2019. Personally, he is experiencing more weakness, his tolerance levels have gone down and he feels very disturbed psychologically as he is the only earning member of the family.

On a more positive note, Gunesh has advanced to the 3rd position in the waiting list for organ donation applied through the ZTCC Nagpur, India (Zonal Transplant Coordination Committee) and has registered for kidney transplant operation in Sawangi Meghe Hospital, Wardha, India. His family and him continue to hold fort and remain positive – his lovely daughter Avanti plays a large part in keeping everyone’s hopes and spirits high. His employer continues to  support him with flexible working hours.

As of today, Gunesh eagerly awaits the organ transplant procedure and we are all committed in supporting him in his fight against dual kidney failure.

Dear Donors,

This campaign has collected 25% of the target amount and this is not enough to cover the expenses for Gunesh. He has advanced to number 3 in the waiting list for organ donation. Hence, we are extending the deadline to enable more supporters to contribute and help Gunesh collect atleast 65-70% of the target amount and go through with the surgery.

Thank you for the support you've provided. We request you to keep supporting us in any way possible.

Thanks,
Smita
