Story

Hello friends, family, and all well-wishers!!

I'm Senthilkumaran and I'm raising funds for my wife Revathy’s treatment. Revathy is suffering from severe pneumonia and pulmonary fibrosis as post-Covid complications.

She is currently in ECMO(Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) support in the intensive care unit (ICU) over 3 months at the private hospital, Greams road.
Revathy is working as a frontline health care facilitator for the past 25yrs at a Private hospital. Even during this pandemic, she was working tirelessly for Patients' health and welfare including covid patients.

Revathy tested positive for Covid-19 on May 9th,2021, and was admitted to a private hospital on the same day. Till 3rd July 2021, she was in ICU under oxygen and ventilator support. After running series of tests and scans, doctors confirmed that her lungs are severely infected.

Considering longevity in Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and no improvement in her health condition, doctors advised ECMO support as the final lifesaving measure and to be shifted only with ECMO support.

As ECMO treatment is not available in Government Hospital and among the private hospitals in Chennai only Apollo Hospital provides shifting with ECMO support, hence for the advanced treatment, we shifted her to Apollo hospital on 4th July 2021.

Now seeing her suffering and critical condition for more than 5 months our heartaches. Our family is awaiting her recovery and we are not ready to lose her. I lost my job due to an industrial setback on account of covid-19 and we have two daughters pursuing their education.

We have exhausted all our savings, assets, and insurance. Few more weeks of ECMO support with critical care management will be costing around Rs 2,23,00,000(Rupees two Crore twenty three Lakhs). Arranging this huge amount is impossible for us. We are left with little option but to seek Financial support from the benevolent souls around

I'm writing to you with a special appeal -to save the life of a frontline covid warrior, we are looking for support from kind-hearted people to contribute to her treatment. I request you to share this fundraising campaign with all your friends and family members. Even small contributions could also help us to battle this condition and bring back Revathy's life. We need her, she needs to survive! Please help us.

Thanking you all and good wishes!
