My uncle, a 59-year-old marginal farmer, who supports a family of 6 on his meager land, suffered from paralysis last week which was diagnosed as Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). GBS is a very rare neurological disorder and has progressive pathology, i.e. the suffering increases over time if not treated immediately. Currently, he's on life-saving support as his respiratory muscles got involved 3 days back. The treatment for this disorder is to change his blood plasma (plasmapheresis), every alternate day which is costlier than an episode of blood dialysis. It also requires immunoglobulin transfusion at-least 3 times, each transfusion costing more than 2 Lacs.
His family has already sold their trivial belongings like gold to support his treatment so far and are in no position to support his expenses without external support.
It's a humble request to all of you to support his family by donating to our feeder, the amount you can afford. We also request to share this post with your contacts for more visibility.
Your support and prayers are needed desperately.
