Below is the sad current state of an acquaintance, Baskar and I am posting this mail from him on my blog hoping that some of the readers do help this friend in need:
“My mother fell from a moving bus on 8th Dec 2010. She suffered severe head injuries and was admitted to Apollo Specialty Hospitals, Teynampet, Chennai. Thankfully, the doctors have said that she will survive but to regain normalcy it might take 12-18 months time.
The expenses have crossed Rs. 5.5 lakhs till now and I expect her to be in the hospital for 7-10 days more. After bringing her home there is a need for constant nursing care as well as medicines for the rest of the time. I could manage the expenses through some of my friends, relatives and company insurance till now.
But I expect another Rs. 2 lakhs to be spent for her in Hospital and as post discharge expenses for which I am running short of funds. It would be great if you and some of your friends give me a helping hand in saving my mother. Thanks for your help in advance.
