A wall can withstand storms. Please be the wall that can save my family .
My name is Tejaswini Saini and I need your help in raising funds for my father, Prashant Saini's, medical treatment for Mucormycosis.
We are a small family of four. My parents have worked together to give me and my sister a loving and supportive environment to grow in. My father has always emphasised on good education and he ensured that we got the best opportunities to learn and become our own people. However, we now find ourselves lost without our anchor.
My father tested positive for COVID-19 on 27-Apr-2021. His condition deteriorated significantly over the next few days and he had to be admitted in *Bensups Hospital*, Dwarka, for *oxygen support*. His treatment for Covid went on for 3 weeks and was to be discharged on 28-May-2021 when we were met with the horror of *Black Fungus (Mucormycosis)* just right before. He was rushed to *Sir Ganga Ram Hospital*, Karol Bagh, for his operation on 29-May-2021. *He is currently being treated for mucormycosis and is being given post-covid care, while still on artificial oxygen.*
I work at Synopsys as a R&D engineer and have raised loans from the company for my father's care. However, the previous hospital did not accept my existing insurance policies and the entire bill of *5 lakh rupees* was paid out of my pocket. His current treatment was being financed through loans and a small insurance policy which is about to get exhausted and, however now we are facing an *acute cash crunch* amidst *scarce resources*.
The hospital has prescribed at least *60 vials* of anti-fungal medicine, *Amphotericin B*. A vial of this medicine costs anywhere between *6000 - 8000* rupees and sometimes even more, based on its availability. Along with this main line of treatment, supporting medicines like *posaconazole* and *cresemba (isavuconazonium)* are also very expensive. This is in addition to oxygen, bed and medical equipment costs being charged by the hospital for each day he stays there.
The last six weeks have proven to be a nightmare for our family. I have seen my father at very bad state. While his health has improved considerably at Sir Ganga Ram hospital, without a continuous supply of the required medicines, this progress would not sustain itself. I, now, find myself in a position where *I cannot maintain this continuity anymore.* This is where I extend my hands for help from you.
*Please, help me bring my father back home.*
