    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Mumbai Suburban, Maharashtra

Mrs Norma Fernandes, age 63 years, suffered acute on chronic subdural haemorrhage (brain haemorrhage) with midline shift of approx. 15-16mm to the left side, on 29th June, 2019.  Due to financial constraints, the family tried to get admission at a general hospital near her residence but her case was too critical.  As it was late in the night and she was getting seizures, she was admitted at Lilavati hospital, Mumbai (which was the closest) in the early morning hours of 30th June’19.  On examination and CT scan, the doctors proposed surgery as the only way forward.  Hence, her son and relatives put together their own savings to pay the initial hospital and surgery costs.  Thereafter, she underwent surgical decompression surgery with removal of part of skull on 4th July, 2019.  She is currently on ventilator, unable to move her limbs and is still in the Intensive Care Unit.  

The doctor’s diagnosis indicates that she may require approximately 30 or more days of hospitalisation and nursing care depending on her prognosis.  She will also need more than a year of rehabilitation before she can recover to some extent.  She is a widow and totally dependant on her only son, who is the sole earning member and struggling to make ends meet.

Her family is very concerned about the post-operative and rehabilitation costs, besides her physical disability will be a hinderance in her daily activities.

We are trying to raise funds from some religious institutions but would like to appeal to anyone who is generous, understanding and caring, to come forward and contribute whatever you can, however small it may be, as it will greatly assist in this hour of need.

Thank you friends for your generosity and love.  It is deeply appreciated and may God Almighty bless each one of you and your loved ones with great health and happiness every day of your life.  Say a prayer for her, will you, because God always answers prayers that are from the heart and your prayers mean a lot too.

Thank you and God bless you.
