Both my son’s kidneys have failed; his liver, too, is not functioning properly and requires an urgent transplant.
He is suffering from a rare condition called Primary Hyperoxaluria. It is a life-threatening condition that prevents the kidney from carrying out its function.
Our hearts completely sank when the doctors told to us that Khalayed’s life was in danger and that he would have to undergo a minimum of three transplants to live. How are we supposed to arrange for Rs. 40 lakh ($ 54,994) in such a short time, we have no idea ?
My name is Anjum and I am Khalayed’s mother. My husband is a labour and earns Rs. 11,000 ($ 152) every month, he is the only earning member and I am a housewife. When my son was an infant, his temperature had shot up, and he suffered from urinary problems.
In November 2018, the test reports said that his calcium was high and his kidneys had become dysfunctional. Further genetic tests revealed that his liver, too, needed a transplant.
Khalayed is brave and strong, but as a mother, it shreds my heart and soul into pieces to see my son go through all of this.
Our relatives have played a major role in helping us pay the outstanding bills.
About Rs. 3 lakh ($ 4,132) has already been spent on his treatment, but the amount needed for the multiple transplants is out of our reach.
We are in a state of despair for not being able to save our child, but we know God will help us.
You may be his way of helping my child to fight and come out of it. Your contribution can make a huge difference. Please help!
