Fundraiser for Prasanth Kandula

On September 15, 2017 my brother Prasanth Babu Kandula suffered an acute brain stem stroke (Pontine haemorrhage) and since been battling for his life in Metro Health critical care, Cleveland. 
The intensity of the stroke damaged most of the cells around his brain stem that caused paralysis in his entire body except eyes.

He is currently a Ph.d student in Washkewicz College of Engineering , Cleveland State University. He is studious, well mannered and has completed all his course work with 18 scholarly citations ( and about to present his dissertation in december 2017. He loves teaching and has received various accolades for his ability to teach including the outstanding teaching award from CSU (

My brother is the kindest person you would meet, full of love, care and compassion for everyone. His amicable attitude and willingness to help others sets him apart from anyone I know. My mother and our family are heart broken with incredible grief.

His student insurance plan wouldn't cover all the expenses for the treatment & long term care he needs. So we kindly request you to please help us in anyway possible. All donations are sincerely appreciated.

My name is HariChaitanya Kandula & I have organized this campaign to help my brother. All the funds raised will be withdrawn by myself for my brothers treatment, care & recovery.
