This is Catherine. Life has come to a standstill for us. The man who was the pillar of support- the strength of the family- my father, Gnana Prakash, suffered a stroke around 2 weeks back and is battling for his life at the hospital. He has already undergone Craniotomy and Tracheostomy procedures. He is currently admitted to the hospital and not conscious yet. He is paralyzed on his right side. The past few days have been an emotional turmoil for our family.
My father was working as a masala powders' salesman. He also volunteered to do the accounts of the company as he was good at Mathematics. He is an exceptionally hardworking man and very family-oriented. Papa is unapologetically himself- he loves rings and wore them on all his fingers, grew his hair and had unwavering confidence. He is an extremely charming person, could make friends very quickly and gave the best advice and was amazingly good at metaphors. He had a great knack for storytelling with funny expressions and would make us all laugh. He is the type of father who pretended to be a drunk man asleep on the road for a college project.
He never let us know when he wasn’t well as he didn’t want us to worry. He loved fashion and always wanted to stand out. It is extremely tough to look at him in this state, but we are hopeful that him being the positive and mentally strong person that he is, he will fight it all. The doctors have told that the road to recovery is a long one. We have already spent around 12 lakhs and we would require a lot more for his treatment. At this juncture, when our world is crashing around us, I need your love and support to pull our way through. Papa’s treatment is an expensive affair and with our limited resources, we can’t manage to pay for the treatment.
I request you to kindly contribute to his treatment and help us during our time of need. Every small contribution counts! Kindly also share the fundraiser with your family and friends and help me reach my goal amount!
