AT A GLANCE
Friends, We are writing this on behalf of Madhusudan Bolisetty or Madhu as he's fondly known - a friend to many, brother, loving husband to Madhavi Bolisetty, doting father to Srivatsa and so much more. He and his family had moved to the US few years back and were slowly adjusting to their lives here when tragedy struck. On June 13th, while attending dinner with a couple of his work colleagues, he stepped away to use the washroom and never returned. He was later found lying on his back, unconscious, bleeding from his nose. Emergency response was called in and he was hospitalized immediately. The doctors informed us that he received a blunt force trauma to his head causing about 70% damage to his brain. He has been under medical supervision since the doctors have been trying their best to save his life. He has been under sedation since as doctors feared that the pain would be unbearable. They even performed a surgery to help relieve the pressure on the brain, but to no positive outcome yet. As of the most recent update, his inter cranial pressure has continued to rise and doctors are fighting to keep him safe. He is critically ill with traumatic brain injury with progressive swelling.
Who is Madhu?
Madhu is a computer engineer by profession and currently working in a project based out of Atlanta. Madhu stays with his wife and his only son in San Jose and travels between Atlanta and San Jose for work. Madhu is a great individual with a big heart and gentle personality. During the last 8-10 years, he helped hundreds of people by teaching, mentoring and counselling them in their careers and left an indelible mark in their lives. He is a simple man with great attitude and values. His friends call him fondly as their “Guru in SAP” and many people reached out to him to seek his valuable suggestions. He always went out of his way to help friends and colleagues. His close associates are always inspired by Madhu and he stands as an example at leading any social campaigns for betterment of the people. He has helped many people during hard phases of their lives for medical expenses, adopted few orphans from an orphanage in Hyderabad. With great pride, he used to write his favorite motto in his email signatures “People first, then money, then things”.
EXPENSES AND GOING FORWARD
Now, Madhavi (wife) has no source of income besides her husband and in spite of it all, she has been dealing with all this with the utmost fortitude and has not stopped believing that her husband will get better and leave the hospital. They really don't have anything without him and they're depending on other people for help. Their close friends and relatives are rallying around them for support at this point of time, but they need all the help they can get. Your contribution will be useful in paying off his medical bills and any other necessities his kid may need to make their lives sustainable in the interim.
1. Numerous days in the ICU as he recovers (Day 11 as of June 23rd) – we don’t know yet how long he will have to be in the hospital
2. Medication he’s being administered as he recovers in the ICU
3. Up to a year (but likely more) of intensive mental and physical rehabilitation
4. Future surgeries to fight brain swelling/Edema
HOW YOU CAN HELP TODAY
His closest friends have created this GoFundMe campaign in an effort to defray these exorbitant costs associated with helping Madhu get better. While we are hopeful that insurance will help alleviate some of these costs, the remainder will still be well outside of his family’s financial ability. We are calling on the generosity of his extended family, friends, and strangers to help in the following ways so that his family can focus on Madhu’s rehabilitation and speedy recovery:
1. Donate whatever you can. No amount is too small, and every contribution will go directly to Madhu’s rehabilitation, his medicinal/mental health and supporting his family in this hour of need
2. Share this GoFundMe campaign on all your social media
3. Leverage any other avenue you have to make this go viral (or send us leads/tips)
We added Beneficiary as Sridhar karumuru , is brother of Madhavi Boisetty, because as per the "goFund"rules Madhavi Bolisetty doesn't have SSN and ITIN is not sufficient to get the "gofund' funds. Sridhar karumuru will handover the funds to Madhavi Bolisetty.
These kind of incidents can happen to anyone, and it is humbling to think how someone’s life, perfectly normal and full of aspirations in one moment, can be completely upturned in the next. Madhu deserves another chance at living a normal life. Your donations will quite literally make all the difference in whether this is possible.
If you have any questions on making a donation, please don't hesitate to contact us.
