Mumbai-based Ajay is raising INR 50 lakh via ImpactGuru.com for his wife Reshma, who is suffering from a rare autoimmune disorder called Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP), also known as Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The disorder has wrecked 32-year-old Reshma’s health for the last two years.
Reshma’s body movements are restricted due to this rare disorder, leading to quadriparesis (muscle weakness in all four limbs- both legs and arms. Previously, she had experienced cardiac arrest as a result of this adverse condition and was admitted to the hospital for a duration of more than four months. Further diagnosis hinted at a rare auto immune disorder.
Due to the exorbitant expenses involved, her family was unable to afford the costs and had to arrange for the setup at home instead, incurring monthly expenses of around INR 2.5 to 3 lakhs. At present, she relies on a ventilator, unable to move or consume food, necessitating the use of feeding tubes.
Currently, doctors have advised physiotherapy for her. Reshma undergoes different physical and mental exercises such as writing and coloring as part of her physiotherapy. So far, Ajay has taken exorbitant personal loans, more than 80 lakhs for Reshma’s treatment. Friends and family have contributed more than 60 lakhs.
Having exhausted all financing options, Ajay has now pinned his hopes to the generosity of the donors via medical crowdfunding. He requires an additional INR 50 lakh to continue her treatment without any hindrance.
Being a positive person that she is, Reshma hasn’t given up on her health and is hopeful of her recovery. She indulges herself in reading various books everyday and carries on her passion for cooking and baking through her social media channels.
“After creating some beautiful memories with Reshma in our first two years of marriage, everything has unexpectedly taken a drastic turn in our lives. Despite all of this, my only prayer is to continue building a wonderful marriage with her. Please help me in ensuring that Reshma undergoes timely treatment,” says Ajay.
We are asking for each one of you to help in spreading the word about this campaign and supporting Ajay in raising funds for the treatment of his wife.
