    This fundraiser will benefit

    Srikanth Kasinadhuni

    from Hyderabad, Telangana

Hi everyone,
I'm Archana, trying to raise funds for my uncle Srikanth.

In early 2017, Srikanth  Kasinadhuni then a 45 yr old regional manager in a pharmaceutical company (Hyderabad, India) was diagnosed with a severe LV dysfunction which mandated a heart transplant.
Because of physical limitations, he had to resign his job. His family & friends collected funds for this extremely expensive surgery and to support the family needs post surgery.

By grace of God he found a compatible donor heart and got the transplant done successfully in November of 2018. This transplant depleted all his life time savings. He was left with nothing post surgery. He was put on immuno suppressants to improve the chances of success. He was also advised strongly by doctors to be extra cautious and  limit exposure due to his compromised immune system.

With support from friends and family he was able to follow the recommendations for almost 8 months. However, being the lone bread winner of a family of 4, to put food on the table, he was forced to take his chances and restart his employment on July 27th 2020, he and his entire family along with his 70+ yr old mother were diagnosed with COVID-19.  

A CT scan revealed an infection to both his lungs (report is shown below). Because of his underlying condition, he was asked immediately to get admitted and to be under the supervision of the hospital that performed the transplant. Treatment may cost approximately 10,00,000 and there is an immediate upfront fees of  60000.

There is no insurance coverage because of existing medical conditions and there are no assets or bank balance to afford this treatment. Rest of the family is currently being treated at home and hoping to recover without any need for hospital admission. His survival will be his family survival and kids future. Kindly request you to extend your help in keeping not just a single person but a family alive. S Thank you so much all in advance for your support to in keeping a family alive!!

Regards,
Archana
