Help Karteek Undergo A Heart Surgery

Hello,
Hope you are doing well. My name is Karteek and I am 25 years old. I have been diagnosed with RV dilution in heart. I have had multiple heart surgeries in past. My family and friends have been strong support throughout this journey. My dad has been my hero during this period. We have visited best of the best heart specialists within India looking for better and cheaper alternatives. 
At this critical stage, I have been asked to undergo pulmonary valve replacement and surgery to repair the blockages. The estimated cost of these surgeries is approx 35L. Though my family is doing everything to arrange funds , we might fall short and hence this request for help.
I have tried to stay as strong as I can during these difficult times. I believe things will get better with your help. 
Thanks in advance for your contribution.

Dear Supporters,

I have enclosed the estimate and attached the same, the hospital name is "Innova Hospital", Taranaka, India and procedure called pulmonary valve replacement with homograft and RA correction.  Surgery date is on 17th Jan 2019.

Please find the reason and explanation below for changing catheter procedure to surgical procedure:

"I have been suggested for catheter valve implantation for my 2nd-time valve replacement, however, this current procedure is very new to the medical procedures, hence a doctor from abroad should be visiting Forties Escorts, Delhi, for the procedure. Unfortunately, the doctor visited and went back before even we were able to arrange amount and contact them back. The next visit of that doctor is after 3 to 4 months which will be too late for my current condition. Hence due to the above reason and few other issues, I am now going for surgical procedure, though the severity is high which involves 3rd-time open chest heart procedure (2nd-time correction of Pulmonary artery and Pulmonary valve).

So for now, it is not necessary to restart the campaign since the funds raised will be sufficient for my current procedure unless if I had to again go heart transplantation. My apologies for not updating the information to you all, before.

I once again thank you for your support.
