She was soon hospitalised at Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital and upon investigation, baby Akshaya was found hypoxic and her saturation maintained 93% even after 60% of oxygen. Here she was intubated and put on ventilator support. Little Akshaya struggled with respiratory infections and her conditions did not improve despite outpatient procedures. The baby suffered septic shock and has been recovering since then. Doctors suggested ECMO for the baby and since this facility is available only in Apollo Hospital Chennai, she was shifted here and is currently under ECMO; she has been stable for the past two days. ECMO alone costs around 45000INR, which is required for another two weeks.

Despite Akshaya’s conditions and desperate need for funds, her father refused to return some of Tamiraiselvi’s gold which rightfully belonged to her. After police intervention, they got back their jewels and have now sold it for money to pay for Akshaya’s treatment. Akshaya’s mother and grandmother, both single women working as housemaids have pushed their limits and paid bills worth rupees 8 lakhs.
She is no longer able to financially meet the demands and having exhausted all means for money, she now seeks your support to arrange the rest of the funds.Though baby Akshaya is currently stable, she requires another 10lakhs worth of treatment for her conditions to improve. With mounting debts and raising treatment expenditure, Tamiriaiselvi’s income isn’t even sufficient to buy antibiotics for her child. As a single mother with no proper financial resources or family support, her voice stammers and she breaks out crying when she thinks of her child’s future. Thamiraiselvi prays day and night to God, to let her daughter live.
