Karthik has been fighting for his life since he was 8. It started with very high fever and snowballed into major heart issues (cyst in the heart) for which he has undergone 2 open heart surgeries already. He has been living with a pipe in his neck to help him breathe since 2016. Early this month, he struggled to breathe yet again and when he was rushed to the hospital, the doctors informed Mrs. Manjula ( his mother) that he needed immediate surgery which can get him another 20 years of pain free life. He was diagnosed with Severe Homograft Stenosis of TV. To address this issue, he is in need of urgent funds to get his surgery started as soon as possible.
Mrs. Manjula and her husband work as domestic help and are not able to afford this. They have started their verbal campaign to everyone they know but it is just not enough. The amount is far too big for them to afford. I would be very grateful to each of you if you could contribute any amount big or small for this cause. Every paisa you donate will give Karthik a chance to live another minute.
