Hi guys I'm Manoj.M. I'm starting this campaign for treatment of my mother's rare eye disease called Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy for which we are providing temporary treatment known as intravitreal (in-the-eye) injections of an anti-VEGF medication from around October 2017.
This monthly injections cost around $100 each. This was thought to cure her problem but after 1 year ( November 2018) doctor suggested better treatment called Photo Dynamic Treatment ( PDT ) $1200 and 3 intravitreal anti-VEGF injections of $400 each ( $1200 ). The total cost came to about $2500.
But until that time we had already spent around $1200 all of our family savings. Hence, we couldn't afford and we also didn't hot any loans from anyone. Hence we continued the $100 injections until we could do something.
My mother has received around 15 injections for this treatment into her eye directly which is very painful as I see her every month. I would request everyone who reads this campaign to give anything that is possible for you ( Even a few cents are valuable ).
All the money that I receive through this campaign will be given back with 15 to 20% of interest according to their contribution. Hence you can think of this as an Investment along with Charity.
