I'm Girija, and I'm raising funds for my husband's treatment. My husband Santhosh is suffering from Covid Pneumonia with severe ARDS. Currently seeking treatment from Private hospital grams road, Chennai, India. For his condition, he is in ECMO support and under CCU observation. He would continuously require ECMO support for another 3-4 weeks at Private hospital Chennai. His hospital expenses at Apollo as on 17/6/2021 is INR 20.00 Lacs.
Suddenly our whole family started to experience symptoms of Covid in the Last week of May. My husband Santhosh along with our family members had severe symptoms and they got admitted to a hospital in our neighborhood.
Santhosh had complaints of fever and cough and was tested Positive for Covid-19 on 30/05/2021. He was given nasal prongs for hypoxia and treated with antiviral and steroids . Expect Santhosh's other family members got recovered. Unfortunately, his condition started getting deteriorated. His oxygen support was increased day by day and he got shifted to private hospital grams road, Chennai. Their doctors found 90% severe lung involvement. He was under ventilator support and suddenly his kidney function deteriorated and he was moved to ECMO support. He would continuously require ECMO support for another 3-4 weeks at private hospital Chennai.
After our whole family got affected by Covid, our situation got even worst. The upcoming weeks are very crucial for Santhosh and we are not ready to lose Santhosh. We have a very young kid. Each time he asks, Where is my dad or when is he coming back home, I couldn't answer.
Already we have spent more than Rs.20 lakhs ($30,000). Few more weeks of hospitalization and treatment will be costing more than 70 lakhs ($100,000). Arranging that huge amount is nearly impossible for us.
Santhosh’s family has exhausted all their life savings and as the cost of treatment being very high, Girija along with her son request you all to kindly come forward and help Santhosh get ECMO treatment and help him get back to life.
We are looking for help to come out of this health crisis. I request you to share this fund raising Campaign with all your friends and family members. Any small contribution could help us battle this condition
I will be grateful for your help and wishes.
