    This fundraiser will benefit

    Thulasi Ram

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

A small appeal to you all,

I am Yugendra Kumar from Chennai desperately trying to raise funds to help my ailing father Thulasi Ram who is 60 years old.

My life was thrown into the dark when I lost my mother 4 years back to Cancer. Though we tried as much as we could, I still feel responsible for not being able to save her. Not able to bear the loss, my father went into extreme depression and started showing a lot of health problems.

He is suffering from Type-2 Diabetes which has resulted in the development of gangrene on both his feet. I managed to handle the initial surgeries using my savings & insurance amounting to ₹6Lakhs. But now his health condition has deteriorated and the condition has started to spread up to his legs, which if neglected would result in the loss of both his legs.

This acute diabetes has also put a toll on his eyesight. He is barely able to see. The doctors have suggested for Vitrectomy to save his Vision (Dr.Agarwals Eye Hospital) & Nerve compartment surgery to prevent further infection/loss of limb (Gleneagles Global Health City). Both the treatments amount to more than ₹4Lakhs. Using my Insurance & savings I'am able to cover only half of the medical expense, but still require more than ₹2Lakhs for his procedure & further medical treatment.

I would be extremely grateful for every rupee/dollar received to help my father recover.

Thanking you all in advance!
