My name is Sachin. I've created this fundraiser to help my brother Sanath (23 years) undergo a Kidney Transplant Operation.
My brother was a healthy individual and had recently completed his B.Com course and was on a lookout for a job. But on 25th June 2021, he had a seizure around 12:00 am and we rushed him to the nearest hospital where-in he was moved to the ICU. The doctors in the ICU informed us that his Blood Pressure was abnormally high (260 systolic) and was given a emergency dialysis to lower the BP since medications didn't help in the reduction. Dr. Sriharsha Gurram (Nephrologist) from Columbia Asia Hospital took up his case. Post several scans and blood reports, we were informed that both his kidneys have shrunk to approximately 7cm and needs a Kidney Transplant as soon as possible.
My brother has now been put on Haemodialysis, twice a week until the Kidney Transplant is performed.
The Nephrologists have suggested that either my father or mother become the donor as Kidney compatibility and matching would be higher and have informed that they too require to undergo a few tests. We have received an approximate quotation from Columbia Asia Hospital that the Kidney Transplant Procedure is going to cost 10 Lakh rupees and approximately Rs.30,000 per month post the procedure for the immunosuppression medications.
We are not from a family of means and have already used up all of our savings to pay during the initial hospitalization of my brother and with our current earnings, we are barely able to make ends meet along with his Dialysis Treatment.
If you've reached this point, thank you so much for taking some time out of your busy schedule to read this.
I request you with folded hands to help me help my brother get back to normalcy. Please do support us with as much as you can and do share this with your friends and family.
Every little bit of support is going to make a big impact for me and my family.
Thanks & Regards
