Retired Man Begs For Help To Save His Teenage Daughter From Death

“Nandini knows that she is ill and that we are terribly worried about it. Her hands and feet are swollen and she is confined to bed. The doctors have asked to us to prepare for a surgery as soon as possible. She does not know that her body is giving up on her regardless of how much she wants to fight. We will lose without that surgery.” – Ravindra, Nandini's father.
Ravindra believes Nandini's condition worsened when she got vitamin drips. Despite admitting her to the hospital when she had jaundice, his daughter only got sicker. When the doctors said she needed a transplant, he didn't need time to think about it. He would do whatever was needed to save her. Only, time is running out to arrange funds in time.


Ravindra broke his back trying to find financial security for his family

Ravindra worked as a daily-wage worker and saved up for years. Only when he had enough savings did he decide to get married and start a family. He wanted to have a roof over his head so his children would never feel disadvantaged like he did. Nothing prepared him to hear that his daughter is dying, and she might need more than medicines to survive.


“My parents could not give me much – so I worked hard. Now, my daughter needs a surgery and I'm finding it very difficult to adjust expenses. I've borrowed from people I know and they ask me when is surgery. The doctor has asked us to prepare for the worst, and I need help.”


What started as jaundice turned into acute liver failure

Nandini's illness started by the end of March. She started vomiting and was so weak she couldn't stand. Ravindra and his wife Savita were shocked to see her so sick. She started treatment in a few days but her condition only got worse from there.



“We admitted her in three hospitals – got done every test and every scan they asked us to do. When they said they'll take a part of our liver for a transplant – we agreed immediately. My wife is a match, so she will be the donor. We have arranged for some funds so we are managing now, but what we have is nowhere close to how much we need.” - Ravindra

How you can help

At 50, Ravindra is retired and rents out a portion of his house to manage household expenses. Even if he finds a job, he will not be able to earn enough to arrange funds a life-saving treatment for his daughter. Nandini's health is deteriorating and the doctors have recommended that she get a transplant at the earliest to boost her chances of recovery.

Nandini is a happy child whose friends wait for her to return to school. Your support can give her life, and take this family's pain away.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your continuous support.

Here is the recent update, Baby Nandini is recovering on specific treatment for Autoimmune liver disease. She is well and doesn’t need a transplant at the moment but can decompensate any time. At that time, she will need to undergo the liver transplant surgery. Her mother has been worked up and is a suitable donor.

Regards,
Father of Nandini

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update on Nandini's health.

Currently, Nandini is undergoing regular medication and several tests so that doctors are ensured about her health before going for the transplant.

Her blood count is low at present, doctors have prescribed medicines and a diet so that she can gain some weight as well. Doctors are of the opinion that it might take a couple of weeks before they can proceed with the transplant.

Thank you so much for the love and support, will keep you posted as her health progresses.
