39 years old Rachna first learnt about her kidney problem when she had undergone a checkup in January 2018 due to continuous vomiting, consistently high blood pressure and blood in urine. Only after various checkups she got to know that both her kidneys had dysfunction. Mrs. Rachna Sharma is a resident of Pilani- a small town in Rajasthan. She currently needs to undergo regular treatments at Jaipur which is about 5 hours away from Pilani.
She has not undergone dialysis due to 2 reasons:
- Once it's done, it becomes necessary to do it again and again and each dialysis cost about Rs. 2500 and her family can't afford it.
- According to the supervising doctor, beginning dialysis therapy earlier increases the risk of death.
It is an earnest appeal to all of you to help her in whatever way you can.
Her husband,Mr. Santosh Sharma earns bare minimum to manage his family giving lessons to about 15-20 kids at their home.
The rest of her family includes:-
Her 2 daughters- one in 11th class and other in 12th class; her mother-in-law, deaf and dumb and her father-in-law, age 89.
Their already existing hardships were hardened by an unexpected pain of their dearest, Rachna.

She is battling for her life since last 8 months. Her family has spent everything they had and are in terrible debt as of now. The estimated cost for her treatment is about Rs 2.5 lakhs. They have no means to gather such a large amount.
