I am a 34 year old male blessed with a wonderful family and two amazing children aged 5 and 3.
In 2017 December, I started experiencing chronic backpain, it rapidly spread to my neck and all over my right hand. I couldn't move or swing my hand, my limbs went numb and stiff at times, I couldn't even walk properly. My condition worsened with time. I was losing mobility and started developing speech impairment as well. I had an MRI done and it was a nightmare come true when I got to know that I had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I was told that I must be put on medication and stop riding any vehicle right away.
According to the doctors, I am in the first stage of the disease and have a good chance at recovery if treated immediately. The cost of my treatment would be at least 5 lakhs. I switched to a new job very recently and the company doesn't provide insurance to those employees who joined after 2014. As for my own insurance policy, it wouldn't cover my condition permanently.
Me and my wife are already struggling to make ends meet. We have to take care of our children's education and also need to pay for the medical procedures of our ageing, dependent parents. I have exhausted every single penny of my savings and am really clueless about how I am going to gather funds for my treatment.
I am unable to raise money for my treatment through my meagre monthly income. In order to ensure my kids' education is uninterrupted, it is important that I recover from this disease and get back to being a functioning individual and work for my living. My children's education and upbringing is totally dependent on my well-being. I would be thankful to each and every contribution.
