Achut's fund for spinal recovery

My name is Achyut Pokhrel and I am an unfortunate paraplegic patient. I am a Nepalese citizen and was a grad student in hospitality management, in Australia. I suffered from complete spinal cord injury on September 01, 2016, the day after I returned back to Nepal. After the injury I’m paralyzed from waist below. I have gained some control in my middle back and my lower abs muscles but can’t move any muscle below my injury. I am living my life on a wheelchair ever since my injury. I have promised myself and my family that I’ll put all my efforts to fully recover from this situation.

 

While searching for treatment I came across the name Unique Access Medical, in Bangkok. I got their contact details from the internet. After conversing with them, I was sure of their legitimateness and concluded their treatment is worth pursuing. They told me stem cell therapy along with epidural stimulation is the best treatment for me. They have ensured that all the patients who have undergone this treatment have had improvement towards recovery. In a recent story covered by BBC, a guy named Andrew Bell had complete t5 level injury, which is worse injury then mine. But with this treatment he was able to stand for an hour with minimal support and was able to walk with some support.  The link below is the YouTube video of his story covered by the BBC.

 

The doctors in Unique Access Medical have told me that with my effort and the treatment I’ll likely be able to again use my leg muscles to stand and walk with support. The surgery will be done by the best neurosurgeon team, who also looks after the Royal Family there. If I get the chance to undergo this treatment and unleash the fire inside me to recover then one day I’ll be able to walk on my own without any support. The accident has not only shattered me, it has shattered my family as well. I believe with your help and me getting this treatment and rehabilitation I will be able to reach my dream of walking again and hopefully pursue my passion in life to do social service.

 

My only concern is the staggering cost of the treatment, i.e. $65,000 which is extremely high for me and my family to afford. Me and my family will do all we can to pay including the travel expenses, but with your generous help I’ll be able to undergo this treatment. This is why I am doing this fundraiser and will forever be grateful to people who could contribute for my treatment and make my dream of walking again come true. I promise you can count on me being there for you as well in times of need and support.
