Chandra Sekhar Kankarla (Shekar to his family and friends) is an IT consultant based out of Minnesota.
A supportive husband, best friend to his son, a beloved son, brother and a compassionate human being, Shekar led a happy life biking, traveling, working hard and making great memories...a normal life until everything changed 4 months ago.
Following sudden illness and weeks of doctors' visits, he was diagnosed with secondary HLH (Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis)
- a rare but potentially fatal condition, where the body compromises the immune system by attacking its own cells & organs , putting Chandra at high risk of infection.
Shekar has since suffered from multiple infections and multiple organ failure, resulting in multiple trips to the ICU.
His will-power helped him power through the infections, coming out of danger each time - until the 1st of December.
He was rushed to the ER with severe pain in the stomach. Shekar was diagnosed with internal hemorrhage and a bacterial infection infection in the left arm. The unfortunate turn of events has left him permanently disabled
Shekar in now on a ventilator, in extreme physical & emotional distress and continues to bleed.
His goal is to recover, go home and redefine his life with his beloved family members.
This family has been through unimaginable hardships, having to juggle between a school routine and attending to the sole bread winner at a hospital 2 hours away from home.
We appeal to your generosity to help tide over the expenses and to keep Shekar in your prayers.
*Please Spare Some of your precious time to Save A Life!!!*
And Help a KID who is waiting for over 4 months for his DAD to return home.
