A 27-year-old youth from Rohtak’s Meham town who suffering from renal failure is seeking monetary help in bearing the operation cost for his dialysis and kidney transplant.

Vishal, who used to work as a volunteer with the state home guards, has been bed-ridden since August this year after both his kidneys were found 70% dysfunctional. He is presently getting treatment at Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), Rohtak.

Vishal has to undergo dialysis twice every week, which cost him ₹2,000. His other medical treatment cost him around ₹4,000 every month. Vishal’s father passed away in 2009 while his mother, a homemaker, has been surviving on widow pension. The family has so far spent ₹1.5 lakh on Vishal’s treatment by selling their household items and utilising all their savings.

Vishal’s mother Lalita Devi said she was ready to donate her kidney to her son, but they don’t have money to bear the cost of transplant. “The doctors have advised transplant as early as possible. But we don’t have any money left for conducting tests to see if my kidney is a good match for him. The doctors have suggested we approach any MP or MLA,” she said.

The family is seeking any possible help for Vishal’s transplant. To contribute or enquire more, one can call 9315614209
