Help Krishna Get Treated for Cerebral Palsy

My Son S. Krishna Kumar, age 13 years studying in 7th standard in Ullagaram, Chennai is suffering from a neurological disorder called Cerebral Palsy with right hip dislocation with multiple deformity in both limb by birth and unable to walk till date.We have given Intensive Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, Ayurvedic treatments from childhood to till date.  But we could not able to make him walk or stand independently.

I along with my wife used to support him for his daily activities and take him to school.

We are much indebted to Mr. Sathya Ganesh - Principal of karpaga Vigneswara Vidyalaya Matriculation Higher secondary school, Ullagaram, Chennai for supporting my child and making his entire classroom shifted to ground floor till 5th Std and senior boys helped taking him to rest room. We are very thankful to school for supporting till date.

Finally, we decided for surgery in Annai Velankanni Multi Speciality Hospital, Tirunelveli under the supervision of Dr Francis Roy MS (Ortho). In March 2019, Krishna Kumar underwent 3 stage multiple surgery in seven parts in Hip, Knee and Foot and after this surgery he has to undergo continuous Neurodevelopmental Therapy.

The total cost was around 5,00,000 for 3 stage surgery and continued hospitalization for 3 months between March, April and May 2019. This expense was managed somehow with all my savings and help from close relatives and friends.
  • Cost of Surgery - 3,89,200  (Kindly refer medical estimate 1,2 and 3)
  • Cost of Medicines -80,000 to 1,00,000 (summary attached)
Now he is in the recovery phase comprising Continuous Neurodevelopmental Therapies which are crucial to sustain the progress after the surgery. The estimated costs for these are :
  1. Daily Intensive physiotherapy from a specialist - 15000 INR per month and this has to be performed for a minimum of 1 year - 15000*12 = 1,80,000
  2. Tread mill along with extended attachment for children with special needs, which is estimated to be 1,40,000
  3. Required medicines.
Now, I am reaching out to everyone in an attempt to gather funds for the aforementioned therapies and yet-to-be-settled hospital costs of around 50,000.

Krishna Kumar is the only son of ours, I quit my private sector job from 2017 to support my child and to make him walk. I have used all my savings in to make him walk . But now I am in great shortage of funds to continue his treatments despite great support from all my well wishes and friends.

So I humbly request all the good souls out there to help me see my son walk.

With your support my son has recovered more than 50% and we are hoping to see him recover completely in another 6 to 8 months to be able to walk without any support.  I once again thank all donors for their love.

First of all my sincere thanks to all the donors. It is almost nearing one year after the big support given to my one and all. Now he is able to walk with caliper in the house. It is still likely to take another year for him to walk without any external support.

I really hope he's able to get through. However, the expenses are high with physiotherapy costing around 12000 per month. It would immensely help if you could all support us. Once again my sincere thanks to all of you.

Warmly,

Dear all supporters.
Thanks for your continuous support.  After 4 months from all medical treatment completed Krishna is now walking with walker with HKAFO (Hip, Knee Ankle Foot Orthasis) and without any other manual support.  It is a very good improvement in his recovery stage.  But some one is behind while he walking with this arrangement.  Therapist now trying to stand him in the windows with some support. That process is going on from last week.  He will succeed in that very soon.  With all your continuous prayers and the great God support Krishna will become normal walk with someone support very soon.  My sincere thanks once again to all and request them to inform their friends and relatives to get some more money value that is badly needed.
Thanks
