My brother Praveen Salvi, is a Type-1 diabetic, undiagnosed for the first 24 years of his life.
He was diagnosed with kidney failure (both) a few months back and is in urgent need of a kidney transplant. He needs HDF type of dialysis on alternate days at an average.
He is critically ill & hospitalized in Nanavati hospital for more than a month to treat complications of water in the lungs, swollen liver, swelling in the brain, low sodium levels, suspected TB; combine with intolerance to antibiotics leading to loss of appetite, low platelets count and additional reactions. With a low hemoglobin he is also being given periodic blood transfusion.
This is his third hospitalization in the last 3 months. His current hospitalization cost estimate has already crossed Rs. 15 lakhs and we need at least Rs. 30 lakhs for this and his subsequent transplant. We are really feeling very helpless as we have exhausted all our resources and as a result, we cannot even meet his current hospitalization bills.
We lost our father as young children – My brother, Praveen, was 8 years old at the time and since our mother was a home maker, we have faced many hardships while growing up. It was only after he got a job as a junior level employee in a private company that there has been some semblance of stability in the family since he is the sole earning member. His wife is a homemaker and their young son aged 6 years has just gone to the first standard. The situation at home is extremely difficult and now has reached a critical level.
We urgently need your assistance to pay his hospitalization bills on an ongoing basis till he goes through the transplant and starts leading a normal life.
Your granting financial aid to Praveen to help him overcome these medical challenges and get him back to lead a normal life would be the biggest boon for our widowed mother and his young wife and son.
Please do not deny this urgent, sincere and serious request for your help and support for Praveen in his hour of need.
All of us in the family will be eternally grateful for any contributions you make by way of financial or even helping us raise some money through your family and friends.
