Help me save my dad, who is battling for his life.

Dear friends, help me save my fathers life. 

Dear friends, I am Vikaash Ramamoorthy, I hail from a middle class family from Trichy, Tamil Nadu.

My father, P. Ramamoorthy is a small business merchant,  he runs his shop in our town. 

On 24th February, he suffered an severe heart attack.

We immediately admitted him immediately to a local hospital. Because his condition was critical, he was transferred to a Multi super-speciality hospital, Apollo Hospital, located in Chennai.

The doctor at Apollo Hospital have diagnosed him VSD due to heart attack (Hole in the heart) and Pleural Effusion (Water collected in Lungs). 

The doctor have informed us that he is very critical and doctors said they can’t give any assurance for his life. He is suffering from other complications like Scrotum along with blood and repeated vomiting.

Since his hospital admission, I've spent all of the $4000 that I carried with me. The doctors have said that my dad has to undergo an angiogram after 15 days of observation in hospital along with a open heart surgery to remove the blocks (Bypass) and another operation to close the hole in the heart (to stop the mixing of pure and impure blood in the chambers of the heart) and they expect the cost of surgery to be north of $10,000.

I request anybody reading to please help me save my father. My father is a humble, hard working man, he's always been my role model. 

My mother is a house wife, and I haven't graduated college myself. My father has been the backbone of my family.

This unfortunate event has caused a major set back in our lives.

We do not want to lose our father. Please help save our beloved fathers life.
These past few days have been pure agony for me and my family. We have been praying to our gods day and night.

On behave of my family, I request you to help our family and we will see as god in disguise.

I request anyone reading this to pray for my fathers life and help us save his live. I pray to god that my message reaches you and I am able to convey my concerns.

Your small contribution, will make a BIG difference in my family's life.

Thank you,
A son in despair,
Vikaash Ramamoorthy

Dear Supporter,

A artificial device is fixed in-order to close the ruptured VSD/VSR. Post Surgery problems include elevated liver, severe pleural effusion in lungs and kidney's functioning is drowning so the doctor's started doing dialysis. Liver function which should be 280 has crossed 12000. So only after his lungs,kidney and liver come under a stable condition doctors can proceed on treatment for his heart's 3 arteries blockage.

We will keep you updated. Thanks your support.
