Story


We are all stories. Some get written. Most don’t.

I feel encouraged to share our story here, in the hope that you would play a part in it.


It all started with a phone call I was not meant to answer. One conversation led to another, and in a matter of a year, fifteen years ago, Rajiv and I were married. We now have a seven year old daughter. Rajiv is a simple man – kind, compassionate, thriving on small pleasures, a better listener than talker, silently observing the world around him and sometimes a bit difficult. He loves springing surprises - unexpected books and gifts, phone calls and visits. But nothing in our imagination could prepare us for the bigger surprise awaiting us – rushing him to the Emergency one night, many hours of painful waiting and the desperate efforts of doctors to save him. After a seemingly unending wait, I received news that he had been saved, but that both his kidneys had stopped working completely. A deadly auto-immune disease had very silently been damaging them bit by bit and we had no way of knowing it. He was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease – Chronic Kidney Failure, leaving our small family devastated. A kidney transplant is the only treatment.


What followed was painful procedure after procedure, many of which failed, causing more complications. His haemoglobin dropped to 5. Doctors found it extremely difficult to find veins that could be used to create temporary dialysis grafts, because every time they made a puncture, it would clot the entire limb, taking months to clear. His veins are extremely fragile and his blood has an unusual tendency to keep clotting. When they tried creating a fistula in his wrist, it clotted even before it had healed or the bandage opened. The graft they created finally - his lifeline, also clotted once, and needed surgery to clear. It is now being very carefully protected, so he can undergo dialysis three times a week, till the kidney transplant and Nephrectomy, at the very earliest, as advised by his Doctors. We have been searching for a rare O+ Blood Group compatible donor for very long and have finally found hope. The Hospital estimates that the transplant will cost us Rs 30 Lakh. We simply do not have the money. Ever since the onset of CKD, Rajiv had to quit work. I am alone managing all the expenses with my small salary. Rajiv's and my parents are retired pensioners from the Navy and Army, respectively. Our savings have been totally exhausted. 


This is my battle to save Rajiv, our family, our life, our story. We need all the help we can get. By reading thus far, you have already extended your support to us. Thank you. We may not know each other yet, but We turn to You, with much hope, so we can have our lives back. Every little contribution will help us reach closer to the total sum we need for Rajiv’s life-saving transplant and we hope you will consider gifting us with that. I pray that you do. Thank you for your compassion, love and generosity. In gratitude.

We are truly overwhelmed by the unconditional love, support, kindness and solidarity that the universe is bestowing upon us through each one of you who has so generously reached out to us in our moment of need. Thank you for standing by us, not only by contributing funds, but by offering your heart-felt prayers and wishes.

Many of you are known to us and many not, though only in name and form, because now you share in our lives. No matter the size of your contribution, we know that the heart behind it is very large. Thank you for becoming part of our story.

A very special thank you to you, who describe yourself as just a student, claiming that you cannot contribute any more. You must know that the two hundred rupees you have shared with us will forever be one of the most special gifts we receive. Deepest appreciation and gratitude from the bottom of our hearts.  

We will keep you all updated as we go along. We are still nowhere close to where we need to be, but we are confident we will get there, with you by our side.

Thank you,

Garima.
