My name is GREESHMA S S and I am here to raise funds for my father Suresh Babu who is 62 years old. We live in Kilimanoor, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. He is currently retired.
My father is suffering from Autoimmune encephalitis from July 2020. It was started with a fever and chest congestion. Within one day his sensorium altered. We went to KIMS hospital Thiruvananthapuram on 20th July 2020. There he was admitted and COVID test was done. The result was negative and they started the treatments. They diagnosed viral meningitis and encephalitis has affected the brain.
During his hospital stay, he was affected by aspiration pneumonia and the situation became more severe. He was in ICU at KIMS hospital for 20 days.
As a middle class family it is very difficult to afford the expenditure in super speciality hospitals, even though because of this COVID situation we didn't have any other option. Since this is a rare disease we got admission at Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute of medical Science and Technology(SCTIMST), Thiruvananthapuram.
He is currently admitted and receiving Medications at Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute For Medical Science. He was in ventilator for more than one month. and IVIG therapy is done.
Until now, we spend all our savings for the treatment. Coming days we need Rs.600,000.00 more. Once he is discharged from hospital he need
regular Physician's Assistance, Physiotherapy, speech therapy and medications.
