Our neighbor Sajeev K (45 years old) is suffering from decompensated Chronic Liver Disease with portal hypertension Child (Child-Pugh classification) C, MELD (Model for End-stage Liver Disease) Na 27. He was diagnosed with mild liver disease 3 years ago, which gradually worsened. At present, his health is deteriorating and needs a Liver Transplant at the earliest.
He has already undergone the pre liver transplant evaluation at KIMS, Thiruvananthapuram, and has registered for liver transplantation from deceased donor in Kerala Network for Organ Sharing (KNOS). As per the recent notification from the hospital, surgery is expected by end of June.
The expenses for surgery alone would come around 20 Lakhs and the following hospital expenses will need at least 10 Lakhs. Till now the treatment was carried on with funds raised through personal sources. But in the current pandemic situation, it is really difficult to raise this huge amount, because of which we had to create this fundraiser for Sajeev to meet his surgery expenses.
We need to raise this amount before surgery, or else the organ will be passed on to the next recipient, which adds urgency to the situation.
Sajeev is the sole breadwinner in the family of 4 consisting of his wife and two small daughters. They have already put in all their life savings into this and will be left with a huge debt to meet the surgery expenses.
Request you all to join hands with Sajeev and help him win the battle for his life.
No contribution is small if it is for saving a life.
