An appeal to help the Poor Mucormycosis Patients



                                        An appeal to help the Poor  Patients suffering from Mucormycosis


Dear Friends,
 
Mucormycosis (black fungus) is creating havoc in India.

       



India has recorded more than  40,000 cases of Mucormycosis (black fungus).
https://www.livemint.com/news/india-records-over-40k-cases-of-mucormycosis-11624875874985.html 

The treatment of rhinocerebral mucormycosis is surgery and medications.
Without medications, surgery is useless, and the mortality is 100%
Liposomal Amphotericin B  and Pozaconazole tablets are the medications used to treat Mucormycosis.

Usually, patients are treated with Liposomal Amphotericin for at least one week and, after that, may be discharged home on Posaconazole tablets.
Each person affected by mucormycosis needs approximately 40 vials of Amphotericin B for 1-week treatment.
People affected by the black fungus in India are dying due to a lack of Liposomal Amphotericin B and Posaconazole tablets.
Many poor patients and their families are also financially devastated as they cannot afford the medicines.

American Tamil Medical Association (ATMAUSA) is working very hard to donate medications to poor patients in India.

American Tamil Medical Association has already spent $50,000 to treat Mucormycosis in India.






Our appeal to you is to contribute to the American Tamil Medical Association (ATMA), a registered 501 (C)(3) IRS tax-exempt charitable organization that will personally oversee this activity. We will use one hundred percent of the collected funds to procure medications to treat Mucormycosis. This initiative from all of us today will go a long way in preventing an untold number of premature deaths due to MUCORMYCOSIS  in the coming months.

Thank you very much !!!
