    S Krishnakumar

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

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.
