    This fundraiser will benefit

    James Alberto

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

My Husband James met with a car accident near Salem while travelling along with 4 other office colleagues on 30-Apr-2022.

He was admitted unconscious initially in ICU with support of ventilator because of multiple rib fractures. He came to consciousness but his spinal cord D9 and D10 is fractured. As per neurologist even after surgery the legs might not function or the chances are very less with physiotherapy.

Surgery done on 3-May-2022. Stabilization done using titanium pedicle screws at D4, D5, D11, D12 & L1 on the right side. Pedicle screws placed at D6, D7, D8, D9,D10, D11 & D12 on the left side. Right D12 screw put medially due to pedicle fracture 2x550 mm rods cut as per requirement and 2 Interlock plates placed to secure the construct. He was then shifted from Salem to chennai on 7-May-2022. Surgery Sutures removed at Private hospital and started physiotherapy..

We have moved him to HAMSA Rehabilitation center on 19- May-2022 where he will have to stay for 2-3 months

The treatment involves therapy for body and mind. And physical training to help him gain upper body strength to do daily activities by himself without any dependency.

The therapy and the medication charges costs 15000 per day. He needs this treatment for next 6months to atleast sit right up and use wheelchair for his daily activities independently.
