The journey and story of each transplant patient is unique and our foundation has helped successfully raise financial aid for many patients to create a happy ending to their journey.
Wanted to thank you and your team, staff, physio, housekeeping, security, canteen staff and all support staff who took care of Suvarna as a family member from the day she was admitted till her discharge.
Since August 2015, she had being facing various issues related to her health like blood omitting.
She was admitted more than 10 times from August 2015 to July 2016. She was very nervous and upset about her health and most importantly she was worried for our little boy (Tanishq) and for me.
On mid of July 2017, we got final verdict from our earlier consulting doctor about liver transplant. Hearing this we both were upset and really did not know what to do and how to go about. We could not sleep for couple of nights only thinking how to tackle this.
Suvarna is brave hearted and strong woman. She said nothing will happen we have not done anything wrong to anyone and most importantly GOD is with us. She said at least speak to your friends. I spoke to my friend Nelson, I just told “Suvarna needs to go for liver transplant”
He said OK, now you just hang on and we will meet you at evening.
Same evening my friends came to meet me and they executed the plan. Within a week all turned to be positive. All my school friends came up like a family and supported Suvarna. Shailesh knew Suvarna’s condition and showed interest in donating his liver to her. All worked out within 45 days.
In last week of July, Dr. Aabha asked us to meet you and her team at Apollo Hospital, New Mumbai. For the first time when we meet you during our meeting, you introduced a kid of 7 years who had undergone liver transplant one month prior. We were surprised and on the same moment we decided we will go with you and your team for further treatment. We knew Dr. Aabha was always helping us from July onwards and she will keep us in safe hands.
After meeting you and your team, Suvarna said I will do my operation under Dr. Darius only. I don’t need to go for any other Dr. We even did not check other options. She was much impressed with you.
All things well, operation was successful, Shailesh and Suvarna were doing well and all went as per your given timelines.
After operation she is really feeling good and different than last one year what she was undergoing.
Hope going further all will be well and she will be as fit and fine.
She was feeling amazing and she carried all positive vibes from hospital when she was discharged.
Appreciate support from Dr. Vikram Raut, Dr. Suresh, Dr. Aabha Dr. Prateek and Dr. Priya.
THANK YOU is a small word for you and your team. I don’t have words to express my gratitude.
Support from you will be always there.
