Everyone coughs. There’s nothing new or dangerous about it. When it happened to me, I shrugged it off as a flu or allergy. It became a part of me eventually. Little did I know it was a symptom of a much bigger disease. It was a sign of my heart failing.
“Pramod and I failed our high school exams. We hardly understood what the doctor was telling us, but our hearts sank as the tone told us that our brother’s life was in danger. The doctor explained how his heart was not strong enough to push blood to all his organs, and that he will not survive for long as his condition would continue to deteriorate.” – Sunil.
“We did not know that Prashant needed a heart transplant. Back in 2013, we thought his problem was cured. Again in 2015, he began to have the same symptoms, only this time it was worse. We admitted him in the hospital. For 4-5 days he was treated with medicines. He felt better, but in a month the problem recurred. After another test, we were taken aback to find out that his heart function was down to 15%. That was so close to 0, and meant that someday soon our brother’s heart may just stop beating. Kolhapur hospitals were not equipped to deal with such serious cases. So we came to Mumbai and consulted with Dr. Hamdulay.”
“During those years, regardless of the pain and discomfort, Prashant was dedicated to his education. He has completed his Ph.D, but cannot go to work right now because of his deteriorating condition. Back then, the doctors never even suggested a surgery. It was only after we came to Dr. Hamdulay that we learned about the cure. So far, all the treatment including medication has been keeping his symptoms at bay. It is a temporary fix, and will not stop him from dying. My brother needs a heart transplant, and soon!” – Pramod.
“How can you ever give up on family? We would do anything to keep him alive. The estimated cost for this surgery is Rs. 15 Lakh. With our father’s surgery, we are not left with much to cope with Prashant’s medical expenses. We need help to save our brother. He has so much to do, so much to achieve. Please help us save him.”
