Support Ruchi survive a Traumatic brain injury

Hi,

I'm raising funds for Ruchi Pandey who met with a road accident on 18th July 2019 and suffered severe brain contusions, spinal and pelvic bone fractures, and other injuries. She's has been comatose since the accident and been treated at the Bombay Hospital, Indore.
Ruchi is originally from a small town in Chhattisgarh and was a professor at Indore, Madhya Pradesh. We have been doing all that we can but we need your support to continue her treatment and medical expenses. Her treatment includes neuro-medication, regular nebulization, physiotherapy, PEG feeding, tracheostomy care as well as general nursing.
There has been gradual improvement in her reflexes and condition, which has only been possible by continued medical attention and care. Her neurologists believe that she'll recover substantially in next couple of months. But we are running short on finances to get her the utmost essential help that's required.
I request you to kindly donate towards the treatment and help us get her better. Each contribution is important! Please help us raise this amount by clicking on the donate button and share this link with your friends and family.

We are grateful for your help and wishes.

Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

Greetings to all!

Around mid-July of this year, Ruchi's brother Shanu raised the concern of financial hardship that the family was going through due to Ruchi's medical treatment. The fund required was beyond our personal capacity and that's when we thought of crowdfunding the amount.

We started the fundraiser on 29 July 2020, shared the story with our family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances and in less than 10 days we raised around INR 5 Lakhs. Hundreds of you all came forward to help, contributed and supported further by spreading the cause.

Ruchi's story was shared and viewed 1,527 times globally; people from India, Dublin, North Bergen, Canada and Dubai extended their kind help.

We are extremely grateful to each of the 596 supporters. While we have tried to acknowledge the donors, most of them have contributed anonymously and hence we are unable to personally thank you but we'd like you to know that we are deeply thankful; you have reaffirmed our belief in humanity and empathy. Some of the people have actively supported the campaign, we really appreciate your efforts, our heart is full of love and gratitude for you.

Ruchi's Health Update - Ruchi's recovery is a slow and long process, but each day is crucial and she requires continuous attention. Even a twitch or vomit has to be taken seriously as it indicates change in her neurological health. Ruchi is stable, her vitals are good, physical therapy and medications are also going on and neurological consultations are being sought at regular intervals.


Campaign Update - I am very pleased to share that we have raised 95% of the fund but still need INR 27,000 more. We'd really appreciate if you can share the link with your friends and family and help us reach the goal.

As you all know this fund is helping us provide the medical care and support that Ruchi needs.

Thanks for your love, support and prayers.

Sincerely,
Prachi

Dear Supporters,

Greetings! Thanks for your kind contribution to Ruchi's campaign. It will help us to continue providing the required care without any hinderance.

The Journey:
Ruchi lost her consciousness after the accident as she suffered haemorrhagic contussions in brain, multiple fractures at the base of the skull, ribs, scapula and pelvis; her right lung had also collapsed. Initially she was on ventilatory support, dual inotropic support; tracheostomy and PEG was done for feeding. Gradually, after she was stable, she was weaned off the ventilatory support. Her condition started improving and was considered to out of any danger to her life.

After 12 months of continuous care and attention, Ruchi has now reached a score of 8 out of 15 as per the Glasgow Coma Scale (she was at 3, immediately after the accident). Her fractures at the base of the skull, ribs and scapula have healed while the pelvic one is still recovering. She's responding well to the physiotherapy and her motor skills are improving, for e.g. she can now move her feet and hands. We also notice that since last few weeks, she opens her eyes to pain, sound or sometimes just spontaneously.

Ruchi's doctors believe that she's made about 40% improvement so far and the recovery rate's going to increase in the upcoming months as she has already fought and survived the difficult phase of the recovery.

It also gives me immense pleasure to state that we have raised INR 2.31 Lakhs in less than 100 hours, thanks to each of the 284 supporters.

Message from Ruchi's brother:
"हमारा पूरा परिवार आप सबको तहे दिल से धन्यवाद देना चाहता है। आप सभी ने हमारी आर्थिक मदद की है, अब आपसे अनुरोध है की रुचि दीदी को अपना आशीर्वाद और प्यार भेजते रहिएगा... उनको इन दोनो की आवश्यकता है।
आप सभी का आभारी,
Shanu Pandey"

Thank you for your love and support, we'll keep sharing her journey of recovery with you all!
