Medical Expenses for Kidney Transplant

My name is Nirmala Jain, an Indian mother of two, who resides in the British Virgin Islands. I am here to raise funds for my son, Rishab Jain who is 15 years old. Rishab lives in Mysuru, Karnataka, which is in the southern region of India with his grandmother. Though he is unable to attend school at this time, he's classified as a 9th grade student. 

Rishab suffers from kidney failure since birth. Due to the fact that he was born with only 5% kidney mass. He is receiving ongoing kidney dialysis in Clear Medi Radiant Hospital were he has been in the Intensive Care Unit for the previous four months.  

Until now, our entire family has done their best to assist with the cost of Rishab medical care. We arranged multiple loans and have exhausted all savings.  

I am divorced and my ex-husband does not help support our offspring. I am working as a Spa Therapist thousands of miles from my children. Unfortunately, the money is not nearly enough to support us all. With the added medical bills, these last four months have been difficult to manage. I have reached out to the Indian government for assistance and even requested help from the British Virgin Islands territory. 

My son needs two more surgeries prior to his kidney transplants. He is on full time dialysis now due to his condition.

The treatment may be prolonged and expensive. Please help if you are able to support this necessary cause.

Any contribution that you are able to provide will help immensely. Please share this campaign link with your friends and family.
