My friend Ramandeep and I are creating a fundraiser on behalf of a family from Yeshwanthpur, whose eldest son Ranjith Kumar aged 26 has met with a terrible road accident in January. He is currently admitted to Intensive Care Unit at St. John’s Hospital, Bangalore. His initial diagnosis was polytrauma, brain injury, spleen laceration (wound deep cleaning ), both side femur fracture, multiple arterial embolism (blocking of artery to stop blood from leaking)and was on ventilator support. He was gradually recovering from his liver and spleen damage after a 12 hours surgery , however the doctors encountered severe bleeding. This lowered his Hb count to a critical 5-6 (non-critical level is above 8)and put him back to intubation.
I came to know about the family when I was called (like 40 other donors) for blood donation on 11.02.2022 and from there on I have been trying my level best to help out the family in best way possible. We have been waiting for Ranjith’s condition to stabilise, i.e. he has been extubated but the doctors could not suture back the intestine where there was bleeding.
The cost of the treatment so far has amounted to INR 26,39,393.52 (Ranjith has already undergone more than 5 surgeries), and the doctors expect that he would require intensive care for another month, if everything goes well.
We are not only raising the money for the treatment but also for the rehabilitation of the family after all the expenses they have incurred. They are not from a privileged background and hence your kindness and generosity would be valuable.
I have personally spoken to the HOD and the doctors about what can be expected and they say that Ranjith is a fighter and he hasn’t given up. The willpower that he demonstrated being stuck to the bed for days, even when connected to so many wires and tubes stunned me when I met him. We are doing this from our personal capacities and urge you to come forward with your willingness to help. If you can also help us with ways to finance them(a better source of crowdfunding), it would be helpful.
Spreading love and hope,
Ramandeep and Ritwika
