I got detected with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 15 and have been on insulin therapy for the last 18 years. Over time, I developed neuropathy and retinopathy which started hindering my way of life. A couple of years ago, I got detected with advanced-stage kidney disease, which progressed within a year into End Stage Kidney Failure. I had to go on thrice-a-week maintenance haemodialysis since July 2018. Kidney Failure came tagging along with Hypertension and Anaemia. I had blood pressures constantly running above 200\100 and was at the lowest of my physical strength.
My best option to get out of this condition is a simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplant surgery. It is an uncommon, complicated and risky procedure. I would be the first person in Mumbai to get it done. I would be rid of dialysis and diabetes and would be able to live a better life. I want to start working again and take care of my parents. I am not on insurance and already in huge debts. My father, 65, is a critical heart patient. He suffered from a cardiac arrest last year and the condition of his heart is extremely weak (LVEF is 20%, the minimum threshold is 35%). My mother is a housewife.
It is my earnest request to you to support me through the most trying phase of my life and be a part of my fight for freedom from the illness. Please also share this among your friends, family, colleagues, social circles, and any institutions that you think would be able to help me with the medical expenses. I pray that none of you or your loved ones ever go through this phase, but I would love to help you with any information and guidance regarding organ donation and organ transplant if there is ever a need.
Love, Light and Prayers for your well-being,
