Story

My mother has a rare auto-immune disease sarcoidosis, which attacks lungs & lymph glands that will make one’s body fight against itself. She was tested COVID positive on April 16th and since then she has developed multiple complications owing to the virus, asthma and sarcoidosis. Due to this condition, she started having difficulty in breathing within 2 days of testing positive. We admitted her to the hospital on April 21st and she was in the ICU on a respirator for the first few days. On April 30th, her oxygen levels went drastically down to 84, which is very low for immuno-compromised patients like her. She was then put on a ventilator and ever since the doctors have been struggling to keep her oxygen levels up.

The hospital is charging about 1.2 Lakhs per day (~1600 USD) for her treatment and the doctor’s assessment is that she continues to stay on the ventilator for two more weeks beginning May 3rd to get her oxygen levels to stabilize. The total estimated expenses will come up to 35 Lakhs (~48,000 USD) for the whole treatment. Our family and friends were kind enough to pool about 10 Lakhs (~14,000 USD) so far. As a sole bread winner of my family, I am speechless as to where to get the rest of the funds from. After accounting the money that I have saved and the support that I have already received, I am trying to raise a final difference goal of 25 Lakhs (~34,000 USD) through this campaign.

My mother is a single parent and she always has been a survivor. As she fights for her life on the ventilator today, I am requesting you to please help me financially and your prayers will help her get better. Any contribution you choose to make is really appreciated and I will be ever so grateful to you for saving my mother’s life.

Thanks for your support!
Sincerely - Virinchi
