    Jatin Shah

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

Mr. Jatin Shah  (Jain, Javali, Rajasthan), Male, 33 years is in ICU paralyzed from the neck down since8th Sep 2021. His vocal cords have been damaged and hence he is unable to speak. His family includes his wife and 2-year-old daughter (who suffers from asthma) and 6 other members including his father who is suffering from last stage cancer. Jatin is showing tremendous willpower but needs your help to recover. This is a sincere appeal from Jatin's family to help them meet their daily expenses and HEAL JATIN.

Jatin Shah, Male, 33 years is a partner in a small business named ‘Rupam Medicare’ which supplies surgical types of equipment to various hospitals in Mumbai. The business is doing well and they had plans for growth.

He is married to Kajal Jatin Shah and they have a 2-year-old daughter.  They are a family of 9 people who live in a rented apartment in Chembur, Mumbai. Jatin’s father is retired and battling last stage oral cancer. His brother is working in a construction company.

Jatin developed some sudden complications on 8th September 2021 and collapsed. He was rushed to SD Hinduja hospital in Mumbai. His heartbeat had stopped but the medical team of Hinduja revived him after a lot of efforts.

Post a number of tests, he was diagnosed with Anterior spinal artery Thrombosis & spinal cord infarct involving Medulla, Pins, C1 to T2 levels. He has developed complete quadriplegia & has undergone Tracheostomy. He is now on a ICU Ventilator. His entire body below the neck is paralysed and he can only move the head slightly. His vocal chords have been damaged and hence he is unable to speak. Communication with him can only happen through lip movement and movement of his eyes.

Since his hospitalization, the family is facing a lot of financial stress with his brother being the only earning member in the family now. The family was already under pressure due to his father’s cancer treatment and his present condition has only made matters worse. With expenses mounting, he was shifted to Kolekar Super speciality Hospital, Chembur, Mumbai on 9th November 2021 where he is admitted currently. He is under the treatment of Dr Vikas Oswal-9819954773

The total expenses for hospitalization and treatment are approximately Rs. 4.5 lakhs per month which is a huge burden on this middle-class family. In desperation, they have even considered ending Jatin’s agony with due respect but Jatin has indicated many times that he wishes to live.  

The medical staff are doing their best. The family is providing spiritual and moral support to each other. They are now seeking financial support from well-wishers from around the world to help Jatin get back to normal life. With folded hands, we seek your support to heal Jatin

Total funds required for the treatment = Rs. 30 Lakhs
