We are making this appeal on behalf of my cousin brother who is currently an inpatient at Amrita Institute of Medical Science undergoing treatment for an emergency liver transplant. He is a caring and loving husband of 38 years of age and father to an 8-year-old son. His parents lived with him. His ailing father has complete memory loss, involuntary bowel and bladder control, and is bed bound require 24-hour care. His mother is frail and just about able to cater to the needs of his father. Unfortunately, he has had complete liver failure and has undergone an urgent Liver transplant. His wife was the donor. Both of them are still inpatients post-surgery. Sadly as luck would have it, he had a postoperative complication and was taken back to theatre for further surgery which not only took a hit with regards to recovery but also added on to already huge financial burden. We are hopeful and pray they both will make it to be back to their son and family. He was the sole breadwinner of the family who owned a small garage which is now sold. To cough up towards the medical expenses he has also sold almost all that the family possessed and now the only small house he has is up for sale. Unfortunately due to the current pandemic situation, it has failed to sell. As he was the only pillar of the family and no other source of income this family is struggling. With the help of his school/college friends, his relatives, and with the money they obtained by selling what they had, they have paid almost 20 lakhs out of 40 lakhs. The hospital advises there is a possibility it will cross over the 40 lakhs too.
We appreciate it is a very difficult time for everyone during this COVID. All we request is any help even a rupee that may be possible to save this family. Even if you are unable to donate money if this message can be shared on to as many platforms will be very helpful. We will keep you updated with the contributions and we thank each one of you from the bottom of our heart.
