Ellora, Our Brave Heart
I dedicate this issue of the newsletter to my dear school friend, Ellora, who has relentlessly fought against all odds, since over a year, for her husband's kidney transplant treatment. The lack of legitimate donors and the immense paper work involved from government bodies, did not deter our brave heart. Finally, after getting herself operated for stones first, she became the lifesaving donor to her husband. The operation was successful but the true test lies ahead in the isolation unit treatment that would go on now for the next few months, once they are discharged from hospital. Our prayers and good wishes for a speedy recovery to them. At present 17 in every hundred citizens of India suffer from a kidney disease. Every year, nearly 10-15 percent of patients are undergoing dialysis in India, especially children. I urge all our readers to come forward and pledge for organ donation. In a population of 1.3 billion, we can touch so many lives, if each one contributes their bit. Also an appeal to all State Govts. and to the National Govt, to streamline their systems to avoid excessive harassment to patients regarding required documents for treatment. A salute to all such Elloras in our country, who are withstanding the difficulties in our healthcare system and coming out winners! Read More>>>
