The year 2021 has made many suffer immeasurable loss and for a few of us, it has spiraled into a never-ending cycle of grief.
For all my dear ones who aren't aware of my health condition and the impact it has had on my financial situation, I request you to read this message and hear my honest plea for help.
I am forced to raise funds for my treatment as a last resort for this year has spiraled out of my control. I have been suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease and Rheumatic Heart Disease since the year 2013 and I have been tolerating the same without much complaint, but this year, in January 2021, I met with an accident that left me bedridden for almost 5 months as I underwent Hip Joint surgery. Even though the surgery has been successful it aggravated the other ailments I have been suffering. Hence, I was immediately put under regular Dialysis almost 3 times a week and the Rheumatic Heart Disease surgery which needed a correction only maybe after 10 years suddenly has become the need of the hour. I have been scheduled to undergo cardiac surgery in the month of August. It will be a double valve replacement surgery.
In these last 6 months - being the only earning member of the family - I have utilized all my savings and I am already on many medical EMI's. My monthly expense with the dialysis and medications almost costs up to INR40,000/month.
Under my current financial situation, I won't be able to take a loan anymore and I now approach, you, my family and friends, to help me in these difficult times and raise the required funds. I have exhausted all my resources and yet I have to go undergo two major surgeries i.e. Heart Valve replacement surgery in August 2021 and probably a Kidney Transplant next year along with the month-on-month health maintenance expense.
All in all, just to give you an idea of how my savings are now exhausted:
1. Hip Joint Surgery - Hospitalised for two weeks.
2. Post-surgery complication - again hospitalized for 10 days.
3. AVF surgery - upper arm - for the purpose of Dialysis, not functioning anymore.
4.Neck Catheter surgery - emergency Dialysis point.
5.AVF Surgery - Wrist - for the purpose of Dialysis - again surgery was unsuccessful.
6. Stomach Catheter surgery scheduled end of July for the purpose of Peritoneal Dialysis - I pray it will work.
7.Heart Double Valve Replacement surgery - scheduled in the month of August 2021.
8. 12 -15 dialysis sessions - each session drains you off at least Rs. 2,000.
I request all of you to generously contribute and share this message with everyone you know. I understand this year has been tough on all of us, but it has been really worse for a few.
I look forward to helping/support pay forward as soon as I am capable enough. I will always be grateful for all the support I can get.
