Surekha developed Acute Respiratory Syndrome (ARDS) and has been on the ventilator since admission. FROM LAST 2 MONTHS (17thJuly 2017) she has been kept in ventilator and the family has spent several lakhs for her treatment. She has two children.
"Two months back, my mother contracted influenza. We took her to a local clinic in Ratnagiri where it was suspected that my mother had H1N1. But after conducting, multiple tests, the diagnosis was ruled out. However, her condition didn't seem to improve and so we had to rush her to KEM Hospital. Upon admission, she was put on the ventilator as her lungs started shutting down. She underwent Respiratory distress syndrome and has been on the ventilator ever since
Surekha's husband is doing everything in power to arrange the funds. But given their humble financial means, the family is finding it extremely difficult to arrange for the funds. They constantly need money to fund Surekha's ventilator stay without which she won't be able to survive.
They need their mother to survive and come live with them again
