I hope this post finds you in the best of your health. We need your help to raise funds for the medical treatment of a beloved friend, Md. Rameez. He is 29 years old and lives in Bengaluru, Karnataka with his parents. We both worked at the same company and I have known him for the past many years. In the meantime, we have bonded close enough to call ourselves family.
He tested Covid 19 positive last month and has been sick for the past 26 days. He was admitted to ICU care on 11th May and was on ventilator from the 16th. Rameez is still in a critical stage and is currently undergoing ECMO treatment. This treatment will be done for 10-35 days.
In the next 30 days, we need close to Rs. 40,00,000 more for further treatment. Details of this fund are mentioned at the end of this post. He has been brave throughout and has been putting up a strong fight during this time. We, as his friends are trying to do our best and help his family bear the expenses of the treatment. Please come forward to support our cause and know that no contribution is too less. Please pray for his fast recovery and share this campaign link with your friends and family to help us reach as many people as possible.
Treatment fund breakup (edited again after more verification) -

Total treatment window : 35 days
Taking the average of above, our estimated per-day cost: 2 Lakhs
Insurance and corporate medical help that we have available: 28,00,000
Additionally, treatments undertaken till now and considered in the overall estimate-
