My name is Walid Ansari and my mother, Rizwana Shireen, has been suffering from arthritis for more than 6 years. We are from a small town named Jamshedpur and we belong to the middle class and dont have much savings.
We have taken her to almost all the doctors that anyone has recommended but none could give relief to her pain. Initially she didn't have a lot of pain but as time passed the pain kept on increasing and increasing and in the past 6 years she has many times not been able to move from the bed on her own. Now the pain has increased to an extent that she cannot bear it, sometimes she just sits and cries. If you think the worst pain that a person can feel is during a break up or something then I hope you never see your mother cry while you are able to do nothing about it.
After consulting a lot of doctors and a lot people We have decided to take her to Vellore, CMC Hospital, that's cheap and has a good rheumatologist that can treat her. The expenses are gonna be a bit too much for us as we only have a dry clean shop that we opened by taking a loan which we are still paying at EMI 9000 a month. The treatment expenses estimate that we have got from a few doctors is more than 2 lakhs, as the treatment will include a lot to tests and it will be a slow process so we will have to be at Vellore for quite sometime.
I believe we can pay half the treatment expenses somehow by borrowing money and selling some unnecessary stuffs from our home but it would be really helpful if we could generate some money through this fund raiser which can be used for the treatment, traveling and staying in Vellore. I'm thankful to a specific community that really helped me gave me a lot of hope and strength for coming here. That's all I wanna say and even if you cannot contribute to this fundraiser I ask you to just pray for the better health for my mother and for that I thank you.
