Hello friends and well wishers.
My name is Priyadarshini Gupta and I am raising funds for my father Pramod Kumar Gupta (66 years old) who is fighting for his life.
On October 1, 2019, my father suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage. Since then, he has been in the CCU of Kothari Medical Centre, Kolkata.
The brain stroke was so massive that doctors didn't give us hope beyond 2 hours.
My father has always been a fighter, picking up causes and seeing to its logical end. Even in a deep medical crisis, he is fighting for his life giving us and the doctors hope.
The medical bill has crossed ₹50 lakhs till date. We never visualised that our struggle would go on for so long. We had assumed that we would manage the medical bills with our savings and medical insurance.
However, after almost four months now, we are at a brink of a financial crisis. Help from family members, friends and loans has not been enough. We need additional funds to continue my father's treatment and pay the hospital bills.
Soon, we hope to take my father home which would require funds to buy medical equipment and arrange for home care nursing and physiotherapy.
My family has been stoically facing this challenging situation. On behalf of my family, I turn to you for help. All contributions are welcome.
As Lao Tzu said 'the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step'. So, each and every bit counts. Helps us reach our goal towards my father's treatment and recovery.
My father retired in 2012 from Steel Authority of India Limited. He is an IIT Kharagpur and IIM Calcutta alumni. An active member of the IIT alumni association, he was elected president of Kolkata Chapter on September 2019.
I request you to help us during our time of need.
