I'm writing this on behalf of my cousin brother-in-law Umesh Sudhakar Patil who is just 19 years old and suffering from end stage renal failure. The Doctors have suggested for a kidney transplant as soon as possible as both of his kidneys are damaged and functioning below 15% capacity.
His family received this unsettling news just last year and since has been going through a tremendous amount of stress, not to mention both financially and emotionally as they try to manage Umesh to go through frequent hospitalizations and tests related to renal failure.
His father is ready to donate his kidney and is undergoing few last necessary pre-op tests. This may add few years to his beloved son's life.
The estimated costs for this transplant is approx 12.50 lakhs INR barring post-op expenses. The family is trying hard to arrange this hovering amount by putting in almost all the savings and assets they have.
However, it's still not sufficient as his father is a sole earner with a private sector job that brings in salary not enough for arranging such huge funds. They are now stretched beyond capacity and would really appreciate help.
If you can find it in your heart to contribute, the family would be really grateful. There is no amount too big or small. Any contribution will be of immense help!
Thank you in advance for your help!
