“If this isn’t a miracle, then what is?”
15-year-old Ansh’s dreams to be a National Level Athletics Champion came crashing down with the news of his Guillain Barre Syndrome. GBS is a rare disorder affecting 1 in 1,00,000 people each year. His immune system was mistakenly attacking his nerves and the battle between the two had paralysed the young boy from the neck down. His condition further deteriorated in the next few months and Ansh went into coma.
Meanwhile, Ansh’s father Rajiv had sold off his business just to pay for the timely vaccines, each of which cost Rs. 1 Lakh. The family’s breadwinner had quickly depleted all his resources. Distraught, they came to ImpactGuru with just one wish - saving their son. We connected them to kind donors like you for help and you did not disappoint!
You came forward to save the day and helped the family raise over 19 Lakhs in 4 days!
Ansh has now come out of coma! The timely treatment including the imported vaccines and physiotherapy is helping him move his hands and eyes. As is common in the cases of GBS, he is recovering at a steady rate.
“Thanks to ImpactGuru I could afford his medical treatment. Today he is out of danger and recovering slowly. Can’t wait for him to get back on his feet.”
ImpactGuru thanks you for your generous support in saving Ansh’s life. We know we can always count on you. We will keep you posted as we have more updates.
