Bharat's Medical Fund

In April 2017, my family and I were blindsided when I was rushed into the hospital. After several decades of struggling with diabetes, I was told that I was in renal failure and that my kidneys were no longer functioning. While I was on dialysis at Orlando Health (an Orlando-based hospital), my doctors discovered I had a massive cardiac blockage, preventing bloodflow to my heart.

I was taken in for an emergency Quadruple coronary artery bypass surgery, which changed my family's life in an instant. 

Since April, I have been on dialysis treatments three times a week , going to doctors' appointments with my cardiologist and nephrologist several times a month, and taking multiple medications several times each day.

After all of this in December, I had surgery on my left eye, where, because of my diabetes, I was beginning to lose my eyesight. 

The staggering costs of medical treatment to save my life have had a significant impact on my family. For eight months, I have been unable to return to work and have been building up medical debt in my now single-income household. I am waiting to recieve a kidney transplant to restore some kidney function.

Even with insurance and medicare, medical bills have become an enormous financial burden. I would be grateful for any support that you're willing to offer as I continue to work toward recovering.

Thank you.
