It was a regular day, Srilaxmi Divi suddenly fell down on the floor unconscious. She woke up with the help of her friends who were near, It was initially thought  as a sign of weakness after heavy work. But she fell again breaking her left side of chin and bleeding all over from face. 

Everything was changed within a day, She was diagnosed with Brain AVM (Arteriovenous Malformation), A serious condition which caused brain hemorrhage resulting in sudden seizures (Falling unconscious due to blood inside her brain) and caused speech difficulties.


Divi has come to United States in January 2019 for pursuing her master’s degree in Computer Information Systems in University of central Missouri, MO. On the fateful day of March 20th, 2019, she suddenly fell off many times inside her kitchen room falling unconscious due to seizure(s).  Her Friend has called 911 and she was rushed to ER in a nearby hospital WMMC (Western Missouri Medical Centre), Missouri and from there she was transferred to RMC (Research Medical Centre), Lee Summit MO as the case was considered more serious.


She has undergone Angiogram, MRA, CTA Multiple times initially to diagnose the problem. It was identified that her left part of the brain was malformed with entanglement of Arteries and Veins which is causing the bleed in her cranium. 

The Hospital RMC was not in-network of her insurance and could not get an appointment with the doctor to undergo the Brain surgery/radiation for removal of AVM.  


Recommended Treatment :

After consulting multiple specialist doctors (Neurologists, Neuro-surgeons, Radiologists) with follow up of appointments for many days, It was concluded that Brain surgery could permanently lose her Vision  and also it drastically affects her speech as the malformation is in the sensitive part of her brain.  

Due to the above complexities,
She would be undergoing radiation treatment instead of open brain surgery , which also has potential side effects, for approximately next 3 years in KU Med (University of Kansas Medical Center) beginning from this June.


Her parents could not believe that this has happened to her daughter all of sudden and are in complete shock,  They were unable to come to United States and divi is fighting her battle all alone. Divi is currently under medication which would make her fatigue and could not do any of her work. She cannot travel by flight as journey is not recommended and cannot drive as seizures could occur anytime.

Divi is always assisted  by some other while  going to hospital(s) and also in doing her daily activities,
Even before her actual treatment has begun she has received many bills from hospitals. the expenses and The Cost of the medical treatment were too high for her. 


Divi is an active student who has 4.0 GPA in her academics and a graduate assitant for a professor in her department for her excellent academic performance and her active participation in university events , This traumatic incident has completely changed her life. Being optimistic and staying positive is the only option despite knowing that She could never be the same person as she was the day before the incident.  

I hope this GofundMe post will help Srilaxmi  Divi, Please pray for her recovery and any amount of donation is not too small to overcome this difficult phase of her life.

May god bless you all !

Current status :
As said by her neuro surgeon, Once suffered from seizure with brain AVM, There is a high risk of brain haemorrhage  immediately in the next 6 months. 

We are praying to occur nothing unfortunate which deters  her mental and physical ability in this situation.

Please help ! Thank you !

We have received a voice mail from the Doctor who needs to perform Radiation saying that the appointment on June 18th is cancelled.

The patient was referred to neuro surgeon for surgery instead of radiation. Few days back the same neuro surgeon has recommended the radiation and all tests were performed in this hospital(KU Med) required for radiation although they were done in other hospital(RMC) .

Now, To verify if there is aneurysm, The neuro sugeon needs to redo the Angiogram which was done in other hospital(RMC) . The reason behind redoing the angiogram : It is done in RMC and may not have all the required data.

A doctor from another hospital( st. lukes) has also already confirmed that patient does not have any Aneurysm with reports taken from RMC. KU Med needs to redo the Angiogram because they cannot rely on the reports from RMC.

So confused ! What would you suggest on this ? Should we ask doctor in KU Med to check with the reports sent to KU Med from RMC. (OR) Get the Angiogram done again. Please comment .

Upon the recommendation of the doctor, Divi has undergone few tests in the KU med which is IN NETWORK but the bills are not covered by insurance as the tests were performed in RMC before( it is not in network ).

Did any of you guys faced this problem, PFA screenshot, and how did you resolve it ? it says "it is frustrating news to receive" and yes it is.

I had to increase the goal amount as the estimation which was done initially was incorrect even without the above news.

To all the donors:
The beneficiary of the amount is srilaxmi divi. The amount will be used especially for 3 purposes :
1. Existing Bills which were from out of network and in network hospitals
2. Any Future hospital(s) expenses which would incur in the next 3 years of her treatment.
3. Travel (international and domestic), Accommodation (for her and her parents) nearby hospital, pharmaceutical Medication and other miscellaneous expenses etc..

Thank you for all of your support. We would end the campaign soon if we are unable to progress, by sending a thank you note for all the donors. we were able to reach this far, It is all because of you.
