Farmer Cannot Afford ICU For His 4-year-old Who Has Enlarged Liver

My son holds his stomach tightly and screams out loudly in pain. At times, he goes out of breath and opens his mouth widely to gasp for air. My child who urgently needs to be in PICU is on a ventilator in the general ward of a government hospital, fighting every second for life. I don’t even have one rupee in hand, I ran to every person I can think of to help me save my son from death. With the money I collected I couldn’t even afford a complete diagnosis to my child, now all I can do is watch him suffer in pain,” - said Vikas, Rishi’s father with teary eyes.

Swollen liver puts this 4-year-old’s life at risk 

A month ago Rishi was happily playing with his sister and suddenly a tight pain in his stomach made him cry out loud. Worried, his parents rushed him to the hospital in their village. The doctor prescribed medicines but even after using them he was restlessly crying in pain. Desperate for help, they took him to a private hospital in Hyderabad where they discovered that Rishi has an enlarged liver.

We thought it was gas but our doctor explained to us clearly how his liver is damaged and it is putting him in a critical condition. My wife and I did not understand what to do but with all our savings we have admitted our child in the hospital.“ - Vikas.

Survival outside PICU is difficult for this 4-year-old 

Rishi’s condition is severe. He should be immediately admitted to the PICU for a proper treatment. He may require a surgery soon. The task on hand is to determine what is causing this issue. To make matters worse, his sister, Aaradhya is also showing similar symptoms. He needs further investigation to detect the cause, and intensive care to manage the pain.

He is in so much pain that he doesn't allow us to even touch him while he is suffering. The sight of injection makes him fear more and begs to take home. I see my wife who desperately wants to console him but all she can do is stand beside him and helplessly cry.” - Vikas.

The family could only afford to admit the child to the hospital for 2 days which was not enough for a complete diagnosis. The expenses of the tests and bills have overburdened Vikas. Left with no option, he has shifted his 4-year-old in a government hospital where Rishi is on a ventilator with no treatment.

Hoping for a sign of time 

Within 15 days my son needs to be treated but I have exhausted and left nothing. I have tried everything I could to save him. With the help of my relatives and friends, I was able to spend Rs 80,000 until now. A treatment that can save my son costs Rs 8 lakhs, money I cannot earn even if I work continuously for years. I am left with only one option, to ask for help. ” - Vikas
