My father, a Hep C patient, has been fighting the deadly virus for 3 years now. If not curbed, his liver will get affected and cause Cirrhosis.
For 3 years, we have been working towards killing the virus in his body. He does not drink but since his HepC virus was in his blood for long and when he got diabetic, the virus got active.
We consulted doctors in AIIMS, Fortis Vasant Kunj and the Hyderabad Liver Speciality Hospital and he was asked to consume a medicine called Ribavarin which is supposed to be the best in India.
He consumed it for 6 months and the virus is still dominant.
The next option was to consume a medicine called Vosevi which is not manufactured or sold in India and it comes from the US.
We were told that the medicine will cost 60 lakhs but then we found that there is an NGO in Mumbai that gets it subsidized and sells it at 4.5 lakhs.
It still did not work. The last resort is for him to consume the latest medicine in this field called Mavyret. A very expensive medicine that will cost around 30 lakhs.
We have raised some amount but we are still short of a larger amount.
These are desperate times and we need your support to keep fighting through these testing times. The medicine will take a good amount of time to get imported to India and since we require this money as fast as we can.
All be safe.
