    This fundraiser will benefit

    Vandana Bansal

    from Indore, Madhya Pradesh

My name is Saumya and I am here to raise funds for the treatment of my mother Vandana Bansal (Arya) who was diagnosed with severe Covid Pneumonia and respiratory failure. Her treatment ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) is happening at MGM Healthcare, Chennai. 

“We understand death only after it has placed its hands on someone we love.”
And so has happened with us also – 6th June 2021 we lost our father Sanjay Bansal to the same illness. The doctors tried everything they could but the damage was beyond repair and papa breathed his last at MGM Hospital, while mom – Vandana lay unaware in of this tragedy in another room nearby. We cannot get dad back, mom is our only hope and support. She continues to be on ECMO support, seems to be responding a little to the treatment and we are doing everything we can for her to recover. The next few days will bring clarity on next course of treatment – lung transplant or not.

Meanwhile the medical bills keep multiplying @INR 2.5 lakh per day. The treatment as you can see is very expensive and it’s a long tedious journey to recovery. But as a family, we can’t let go. We are doing and will do everything possible for her.

We are extremely grateful to all those who have generously contributed for this cause - No amount is less right now, every penny matters. Sometimes a small bit can make a huge difference in someone’s life. We request you to come forward and donate any amount you can for her treatment. It would also mean the world to us if you could also share our fundraiser link with your family and friends too.

Last but not the least please pray for her recovery. Prayers are magic that work in ways we don’t understand.

My name is Saumya and I am here to raise funds for the treatment of my parents Sanjay Bansal and Vandana Bansal (Arya) who were diagnosed with severe Covid Pnueumonia and respiratory failure. Their treatment ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) is happening at MGM Healthcare, Chennai.  

When we had first consulted the doctors at MGM, we were given a cost estimation, we immediately started working on that through our personal savings, relatives and family, and we were able to raise about 1.0 crore.  We then realised we would need more help / support. Looking at the first bill received for 3-7 days has perplexed us even more. The costs are almost double so far. Following is the expense details incurred so far:

Airlifting cost for both – 50 lakhs
Current bill raised (for both for 3-7 days) – 26 lakhs

The average charges per day are to the tune of INR 5 lakhs for both. 
Which means we would require further about 1.25 cr more for their treatment over next 25 days at least.
Further, if the doctors decide to move to lung transplant for them that would require additional funds of minimum INR 1.0 crore (Cost of lung transplant, post transplant management, organ logistics,etc.)

The treatment as you can see is very expensive. But as a family, we can’t let go. We are doing and will do everything possible for them.

We are extremely grateful to all those who have generously contributed for this cause - No amount is less right now, every penny matters. Sometimes a small bit can make a huge difference in someone’s life. We request you to come forward and donate any amount you can for their treatment. It would also mean the world to us if you could also share our fundraiser link with your family and friends too.

Last but not the least please pray for their recovery. Prayers are magic that work in ways we don’t understand.

My name is Saumya and I am here to raise funds for both my parents - Sanjay Bansal and  Vandana  Bansal (Arya) who are 56 & 50 yrs old resp. My father is born and brought up in Indore and mother belongs to Bharatpur, Rajasthan. 

The last month has been very challenging for our family. First it was my  mother Vandana who was admitted to MGM Chennai, and now couple of days back my father Sanjay Bansal's condition deteriorated and he too was diagnosed with same severe COVID induced Pneumonia and respiratory failure. He was on Ventilator support from the last 10 days. But he also had to be put on artificial lungs support ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation), and was airlifted to Chennai on late Saturday night (29/05/2021) to the same hospital where mom is being treated (MGM Healthcare, Chennai). Currently they are both on ECMO treatment which costs around Rs 60-70 lakhs at an average cost of 1.75 lakhs to 3 lakhs per day per person.

Until now, our family has spent a lot on their treatment from all we had. In the coming days, we would need additional 1 crore for papa’s further treatments. Our savings have been exhausted and we have so far managed with the help of family and relatives but now we would need more help. The treatment cost is exorbitant. But as a family, we can’t let go. We will do everything possible for them.

Like they say - No amount is less right now, every penny matters. Sometimes a small bit can make a huge difference in someone’s life. We request you to donate any amount you can for their treatment. It would also mean the world to us if you could also share our fundraiser link with your family and friends too.

Last but not the least please pray for their recovery. Prayers are magic that work in ways we don’t understand.

My mother was tested positive for COVID a month back and have now been diagnosed with Severe COVID Pneumonia and Respiratory Failure. Currently she on ventilator and ECMO support at MGM Hospital, Chennai. Hospital is heading towards lung transplant as her lungs are severely damaged. Unfortunately my father is also in almost similar situation and is currently on ventilator in Bombay Hospital, Indore.

In the last 15 days we have already spent over 45 lakhs for her ICU treatment and air ambulance. Somehow we have arranged these funds from savings and loans from close family members. Next few days are very crucial for us and we will need another Rs.10,000,000/- (1 crore) more for the ECMO and other critical care including lung transplant of my mother.
Please come forward to support my cause. Every rupee counts no matter what.  Your Small Help Can save her life. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.
