Do you know that there are two deaths every five minutes due to Kidney disease in India ? That is how many kidney disease victims die in India - two lakhs an year or roughly 547 everyday! Even as we speak chronic kidney failure is taking a huge toll on lakhs of families. But, you can save someone's life today! Come forward to show your support in helping 26-year-old Lokesh to get his Kidney transplant.
Lokesh hails from Hassan district of Karnataka, India. He is the only son of Baskara and Asha, and bread winner of his family too. Lokesh had always been a very hard worker, and due to his hard work he got a job at the gold shop in Tumkur. While he was working, he started getting abdominal pain frequently. When things got worse, his parents took him to the nearest hospital and after initial diagnosis the doctors suggested Lokesh to go to Bangalore for further tests. In Bangalore, they went to KIMS hospital, and he was diagnosed with kidney failure, so the doctor suggested him to go for Peritoneal Dialysis (Home dialysis). The total cost for the treatment per month is Rs 30,000.
His father is a daily wage worker, and the family is struggling to support the expenses. They already sold the land which they had in their village to pay the medical bills incurred during the initial treatment (he was in KIMS hospital ICU for 15 days as his creatinine level was 36+). Currently, he is staying in Tumkur, and traveling to KIMS Hospital Bangalore for dialysis every alternate day. His family is planning for a kidney transplant and his mother is the matching donor. The transplant will be done at Columbia Asia hospital or BGS hospital, Bangalore, which will cost ~9-10 lakhs (kidney transplant + intense medical care for initial 6 months). For post-surgery treatment, the monthly cost will be around Rs. 15,000 per month.
How Right To Live is helping?
As per our background verification, Lokesh’s family is economically poor, and cannot afford the cost of his treatment. We, at Right to Live, are trying to do our bit by raising funds for his treatment. We request you to come forward and support Lokesh for his treatment. If things go as planned, Lokesh can be back to job by next year and continue his normal life.
