My name is Leeda Menezes and I am raising funds for my husband, Ignatius Menezes who is suffering from Decompensated Chronic Liver Disease with cirrhosis and is undergoing treatment at KASTURBA HOSPITAL (Manipal). His liver is 80% damaged. He was admitted to KMC Hospital Manipal due to severe cellulitis on his left leg. The infection got into his blood steam and now he is battling pneumonia in the ICU. According to doctors, once he is stabilized, the only option for him is liver transplant, which costs a staggering Rs. 25 lakhs. So far the medical treatment cost us over Rs. 3 lakh and still he needs to stay in the hospital for about 2 weeks.
We are a family of five. My husband, aged 56, is the sole breadwinner for the family. He worked as facility supervisor before losing his job due to COVID-19 pandemic. I am a housewife taking care of my two children and my mother-in-law. My younger son is in 7th grade, older son is second year college and my mother-in-law is aged 76 years.
My husband’s liver disease diagnosis has shattered our family. He is restricted to bed and I am taking care of him day and night. It’s been an extremely difficult journey for us so far. We’ve pooled in all of husband's savings little by little along with the support from near and dear ones to be able to pay for the medical bills so far. Everyone in my family are doing everything they can to pay for the exorbitant medical costs.
