“Before we knew it, my son was lying on the death bed. We never thought he could make it out alive. In our financial condition, we hardly look for light because we cannot afford the price of oil."
How did it begin?
“My son first complained of severe stomach pain back in 2014. We didn’t know it was so serious. It turned out that he had jaundice. We took him to the doctor a while later when it became unbearable."
"At Ramachandra, he got treatment. We could not afford the medical expenses, and we felt he was not getting better either for over a year. So we turned to Naturopathy."
"Few months later, Jayachandran got worse. We had to go back to the hospital. We tried several hospitals like Global and Apollo. We turned back home because they all said his liver was failing and he needed a transplant. That would cost nearly Rs. 26 lakhs. We could not gather that much money in all of our lifetimes put together. So we went back home."
"Soon, there came a time when he would have died without the surgery. We agreed to get the surgery. The transplant is the only way to save my son.”
How are you managing funds for the treatment?
How can we help?
“So far whatever bills we had pending, we paid them off by selling all my wife’s and Sushila’s jewellery from the wedding. We also took a loan from whoever we know. I don’t know how we can come up with more to save our son.”
Any contribution will go a long way in helping Jayachandran – a son, husband and father.
