With heavy heart we request help on Sudden Demise Of our friend Sri Vithal Podila to support his incurred medical expenses, funeral and support to his family with 2 kids ( 8 Year old Son and 1.5 year old Daughter).
Sri Vithal Podila who lived in Houston, TX has passed away due to Acute Leukemia . He left behind his wife and two kids. He was a bread winner of the family and he touched every one who ever came across him at every place he stayed, those around him don’t miss laughing out of his Jokes and sense of humor which makes him special.
Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia in Jan 2016 and went thru a painful chemo ( 4 sittings) and Bone Marrow transplant. Post Bone Marrow transplant he has to go back to India due to financial constraints and took treatment in India which cost him 85 Lakhs (God Bless Indian Doctors and Treatment). It was the day 7th of May 2017 early in the morning he had hyper breathing problem which took away Vithal form his Family and Friends. He was a Fighter who wanted to live and took all the pain from Chemo and other treatments with a smile.
He has a son (8) and a daughter (1.5) yrs. The primary source of income was lost while large amount of medical and other bills built up. Vithal's sudden demise has pushed his family's fate into uncertainty. We all have been mourning for his loss and trying to process the fact that he is no more among us.
In these sad times with so many uncertainties ahead, we should lend our support to this family emotionally and financially. While we convey our deep regards to this family, we should pull together a little more and donate what we can to this family like we always do. These donations mean a lot to them and help the family.
We have been working with Vithal's family and friends very closely in monitoring the situation to help with final arrangements and coordinating with his family members. We request you to keep Vithal and his family in your prayers and reach out to your friends and family to help raise donations through emails and social media. Thank you all for your support in advance.
While we convey our deep regards to his family, it is also time for us to stand by them and support them in ways possible just like we always do.
He was a great soul and our friend. The family needs your help in this critical juncture to stand on their feet. We request everyone to support Vithal's family and stand by them and show the solidarity as they grieve through this unfortunate incident in their lives.
