    Rahul R

    from Kochi, Kerala

I'm Rahul 33 years old and I have permanent disability (60%) in both my hands due to brachial plexus injury happened during my birth. I'm a graduate and doing a small job for earning the bread for my family since my parents have heart related issues restricting them from working. I also represented Indian National Football Team for the differently abled category.
Recently I had huge pain on my both shoulders and not able to even move my hands which forced me to consult doctor. After consultation with multiple doctors, Dr. Kishore (Amrita Hospital, Kochi Kerala) diagnosed that its due to the injury occurred to the brachial plexus while birth is the causing this pain and it will get worse in the future unless a surgery is performed on both hands. The surgeries will be performed in two stages first on right hand shoulder and after 3 months on left hand.
After the surgery I need to be on complete bed rest for 6 months and thereafter needs to undergo physiotherapy and the total recovery period is 18 months (depending on the conditions).
Dr. Kishore mentioned that with these surgeries, I will be able to move my hands and I can do more things with my hands which was not possible till now because of the injury.
The estimate cost of the Surgery received from Amrita Hospital, Kochi-Kerala is INR 3,22,500. Other related hospital expenses, recovery expenditure, medicines, physiotherapy expenses are not included in this amount. Further I will not be able to work during the period of 18months and since I'm the only bread winner of my family also need the support in household expenditures like food, monthly rent, water, electricity etc.,. Hence I mentioned the estimate of INR 10,00,000 in total to cover all these.
I request all of you to kindly support me in this toughest time & helping me to live a normal life in which I will be able to use my hands!!
Every Rupee counts & any amount of contribution really matters at this point of time. I would be very thankful for your contributions and also share this to reach your friends!!
Any kind of help is appreciated!!!
