Our friend S. Jayakanthan, 41 years old, was initially affected by Covid-19 in the month of May '21 and got out of it after an O2 bed treatment at Private hospital, Usilampatti, Tamil Nadu, India . Later, he developed severe pain on the head continuously which was diagnosed as Black Fungus infection. He sought treatment at Private Hospital, Madurai , Tamil Nadu, India. As part of the treatment, the fungus was cleared and discharged to home advicing Amphotericin medicine for a month. To increase the strain, Jeyakanthan’s father expired due to Covid.
By July'21, the situation worsened and there were no symptoms of recovery as he had migraine round the clock. Then an MRI was taken and found that the fungus was spread across & all over the head. The hospital doctor said that it could hardly be cured. Then, the people in his family took a call and moved him to Apollo Proton Cancer Center at Taramani, Chennai (APCC), Tamil Nadu, India.
At APCC, immediately an Endoscopy was done and the fungus on the face part has been cleared. Amphotericin was continued. Last week (Mid July'21), another MRI was taken to see the condition and the fungus had spread to the head part which when discussed, has to be cleared by opening the skull. That operation was also done and he's in ICU. Fungus has been almost cleared and the medicine is being continued.
A huge amount of money has been spent since his first diagnosis of Covid-19. By now, the spending has crossed 30 lakh rupees. His wife is strong minded and very much confident that she will bring back her husband home in any situation. We, as friends, are determined to bring back Jeyakanthan to life and support Jeyakanthan and his wife in all possible means. We raised funds within our friends group and supported, but it’s getting beyond our financial limit and now, we are looking for additional support to help him financially. We are doing all means to keep his wife mentally supported as well. Jeyakanthan, as we know him from the past 25 years, is a kind, fun loving , energetic and strong willed person. We, as his friends, are very much distressed to see him in this condition. He is an emerging entrepreneur and all his hard earned money is now spent for the medical expenses. The progress in his recovery is giving us hope and we want him to get back to normal and all the possibilities are tried now. He has a daughter who's 10 years old as well.
We request your kind financial contribution on this matter and also, please share this message who can lend us a helping hand . Each contribution is very important and We, all our friends and his family will be very much thankful & grateful to you. We can provide the bills and treatment procedures if needed. Thanks a lot.
