LUNG TRANSPLANT THE ONLY RAY OF HOPE FOR TARUN

Dear Human Beings, This is time sensitive and Immediate help Needed !! Tarun, 34 years old with no pre disease, non smoker, non alcoholic, only earner in the family needs urgent lungs transplant.

A humble appeal from Tarun's father:
65 years old Mr. Gulshan Kathuria, a retired businessman by occupation and himself a paralytic person appealed to all of you to save his only dying son Tarun. In spite of Mr. Kathuria’s paralysis, the family was self-sustainable. Tarun being the only source of income for the family continued to thrive hard for earning after he lost his job due to covid-19 in April 2020.
Adding to their misery, Tarun was tested positive for Covid-19 on 17/9/2020. Within two days Tarun’s condition deteriorated and on 19/9/2020 afternoon he was shifted to Sarvodaya hospital, Hisar in ICU. The very next day he was shifted locally to another hospital (Vardaan hospital) where he remained in ICU on ventilator support for five days.
Failed to improve, Tarun was shifted to higher center at Venkatesh­­war Hospital, Dwarka, Delhi. He continued to remain critical in the Covid ICU and received injections like Meropenem, Tocilizumab, Remdesivir, and plasma therapy from recovered Covid patient (Tocilizumab single dose costs Rs. 40000). His oxygen saturation kept on falling even on ventilator machine and he was shifted on ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) which is an artificial lung machine. Initiation cost of this therapy is Rs 5 lakhs and daily maintenance cost is approx. Rs 30000/day.
As of today, both his lungs are completely damaged and doctors at Venkateshwar hospital advised to undergo the very expensive lung transplant procedure which is being done at very few centers in India. Till date family has spent 21 lakhs on Tarun’s treatment and deplenished all their savings. The cost of lung transplant is Rs 35 lakhs rupees. Air lifting to transplant center will cost 10-12 lakhs. Awaiting period for lung transplant is approximately 1 to 1.5 months during which Tarun will remain on ECMO machine under critical care (treatment cost will be around one lakh per day). Postoperative care will require minimum of 15 days which will put an additional cost of 15 lakhs. The total budget excluding amount spent till date will be minimum Rs. 90 lakhs.
Since Mr. Gulshan Kathuria’s family has deplenished all his life savings and there being no source of income for the family, Mr. and Mrs. Kathuria along with Mrs. Shilpa Kathuria (Tarun’s wife) request you to all to kindly come forward and help Tarun to get a lung transplant so that he can live and take care of his family again. Even a smallest contribution will make a big difference. Kindly Help.

Dear Supporters,

We are delighted to inform you that with your prayers and blessings,  we got a donor for Tarun and the transplant has been done successfully at Hyderabad .
Tarun is still admitted in ICU at the hospital and will need further treatment until complete recovery.  The road to recovery is very long inspite of the fact that we do not face any complication post transplant. We still require help with funds as the per day cost exceeds 1.5L besides the transplant itself.

Please keep Tarun in your prayers, your support. Your blessing is very important for tarun and us.

Thank you.

Regards,
Tarun's Family

Dear Supporters,

Thanks for your support during this tough time.
Tarun has been successfully shifted to KIMS hospital Hyderabad for further treatment and waiting for the donor.
He has been admitted to Respiratory ICU, currently, he is still on ECMO and ventilatory support and critical.
Tracheostomy (a hole was created in the neck and a ventilator was connected through that hole) was done on Saturday.

I would like to update you that before shifting him to Hyderabad we (Tarun's family) have paid approx. Rs. 42 lac:
Rs 11.50 lac to ICATT for the airlifting  from Delhi to Hyderabad
Rs 24 lac to Venkateshwar Hospital Delhi
Rs 6 lac on medicine bought from outside
Rs. 3 lac in Hisar where he was initially admitted

Thanks for all your support and contribution. We still have a long way to go, but I am hopeful that we will be able to get Tarun back.

Thank you once again and appreciate your assistance in sharing this campaign with your friends and family. I will keep you updated on Tarun's conditions  Doctors are examining him on daily basis. He is conscious still critical.
