Ambitious Young Man With Completely Damaged Kidneys Needs Urgent Help

“My brother, Abhigyan's sufferings have been never-ending since childhood. His kidneys are completely damaged now. He has even lost his hearing ability because of this. Poor Abhi had stopped going to school due to this condition , but he has dreams of being a social worker one day. After battling for 9 years, finally, he has the chance of getting a kidney transplant. He needs it in the next 5 days without which he might not even survive,” Anshul, 19-year-old Abhigyan’s brother.

Abhigyan had to stop going to school from a young age because of his failed kidneys

Abhigyan was very active as a child. When he was just 10 years old, his parents started noticing his swelled up hands and feet. He was also having constant fevers which his family took to be a mere viral fever. When the swelling kept increasing, they took him to several doctors. What they found out left them numb, at such a young age, both his kidneys had failed. Abhigyan has been on dialysis twice, sometimes thrice a week since then.

“My brother was full of life. Even today, nobody can look at him and tell that he has been suffering for so long. After 2 years of his diagnosis, his condition deteriorated so much and he used to be so sick all the time that we had to stop his education. He was shattered. He couldn’t go to school, he couldn’t play cricket. I can only imagine what impact it had created on such a young boy.”

Years of medicines have not just left him deaf, but also affected his lungs and heart

Abhigyan can speak and can only understand if someone speaks to him very slowly. But years of sufferings have made him very shy and timid. He gets intimidated if he sees strangers approaching him. He is only comfortable being with his family.

“We have only 5 days to get him the transplant. My father, Naresh is his donor. Once we get his kidney transplant successfully done, doctors have suggested him for a cochlear implant so that he can start hearing. Years of dialysis and high dosage of medicines have not only affected his hearing ability, but has begun affecting his heart, lungs, and immunity. The kidney transplant is our only hope of bringing him back to life.”

The young boy’s big dreams can only be fulfilled if he gets the kidney transplant soon

Abhigyan didn’t let his imperfections stop him from gaining knowledge. He watches news and sports on the television. Although he can’t hear, he has acquired the skill of proper lip reading. He keeps reading up on current affairs. Once he gets his transplant done, he plans to actively join politics and bring about a change in society. Abhigyan’s years of battle for survival will be meaningless if his family can’t afford his transplant now.

“He is the youngest and the most loved in the family. Even the doctors say that unlike other people who suffer like him, he has always exhibited a high level of maturity. He consoles our parents by telling them he will get through this and will be fine. I just hope we don't lose him.”

For the past 9 years, the family has been spending every rupee they’ve collectively earned and now they can’t save him

Abhigyan’s father, Naresh works in a sugarcane factory. He is employed for only six months in a year. His brother, Anshul works on contract-basis and has no fixed income. Whatever they have earned, they have spent all of it to keep Abhigyan alive. They have lost count of how much they have spent over all these years. Before spending money to buy food, they would have to spend on his dialysis. Now arranging another Rs 8.5 lakhs for his transplant is beyond their means.

How you can help

19-year-old Abhigyan has been suffering from chronic kidney failure and has been on dialysis for 9 years. He has also lost his hearing ability because of his chronic disease. His father is the donor and he has only 7 days to get a life-saving transplant. Without your support, he will not be able to win the years of battle against death.
