    Sharmishta Sarma

    from Jorhat, Assam




This is the story of a struggling artist and how a community is trying to come together to save her. 
 
Mrs. Sarmistha Sarma is an artist from Baligaon, sub-urban of Jorhat, a Tier-II city in the state of Assam from the North Eastern part of India. She has been suffering from chronic liver disease for more than a decade and from liver cirrhosis since 2016. Very recently, Sarmistha is diagnosed with liver  cirrhosis at an advanced stage while going through treatment at the Asian Institute of Gastroenterology (AIG) in Hyderanad, India. According to the doctors treating her at the AIG Hospital,  if an immediate liver transplant surgery is not carried out her liver might stop functioning in a relatively short period of time.

The surgery is quite expensive and her savings are meagre as a non-professional artist. At this point, her ability to afford the cost of a liver transplant is beyond her wildest imagination.

The cost of the surgery doesn't include additional costs for donor liver. Her husband or other members in her family can't donate since she can only accept from someone with an O+ blood group.

Her daughter who has same blood group is not eligible to donate as she is too young for that (only 15 years old) and the doctors cannot allow that.

Due to the family's determined fight to save her life  over the years through expensive treatments they has exhausted their lifetime savings at this point.

The determination and the struggle by Sarmistha and her family to keep her alive is the epitome of the fight for survival for every human being. We salute them for their never say die attitude. But there comes a point when even the bravest of the soldiers gives up because everything looks so dark to him. The family is at the point of giving up. Let's not let that happen and keep Sarmistha alive. We are having a community drive to raise the necessary funds needed for Sarmishtha's surgery to bring her back to life. Please join hands and donate and encourage everyone around you to join hands as well in this noble cause.
