* Help Bhanu and his family in their difficult time *
Murali Gudla, Seenuvasan Thiyagarajan, Sreekumar Rayaroth and Venu Aluri are organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Bhanu’s wife, Harika NC.
Life took an unthinkable turn for Bhanu and his family in the last week of September, when the whole family met with an unforeseen accident and their car completely overturned. Luckily everyone got out without a scratch except Bhanu who received the major brunt of the ill-fated accident. He suffered multiple injuries to his neck including several fractured bones and major injuries to the C3, C4 and C5 Vertebrae. The injury to C3 has caused limitations in his range of motion, the injury to C4 is causing him difficulty in breathing and in order to maintain Oxygen levels, he has been put on continuous Ventilator support and with the injury to C5, his lower body is paralyzed. He is under observation in the Trauma Care Unit at the Allegheny Hospital and the doctors are closely monitoring him.
Bhanu works as a software Developer in Highmark in Pittsburgh and is the only bread winner in the family. Due to the nature of his injuries, Bhanu unfortunately will be inactive for a while. He needs to undergo extensive treatment for his neck injury and will also need a lot of rehab and physical therapy sessions in order to prevent further damage to the spinal cord’s functioning.
Bhanu is a very warm, kind-hearted and a down-to-earth person. His family consists of his wife Harika, Charan (son) and Charmi (daughter). Bhanu has a very melodious voice and pretty sure, you may have heard him sing his favorite composers’ tunes many a time.
As Bhanu’s journey towards becoming normal will take considerable time, we are requesting for donations as the funds will help Bhanu for his treatments and also to his family with various current and future expenses. We all know, when dealing with unexpected medical emergencies, the expenses may become a huge burden on the family. Your donations will help Bhanu and his family tremendously to return to a normal life and not worry about the financial issues.
We thank you all deeply from the bottom of our hearts!!
Note: As mentioned earlier, we are Bhanu’s friends and are organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Harika (Bhanu’s wife) and she will be the primary beneficiary of this fundraiser.
