Help With Swami Mommy's Healthcare

$14,827 of $19,861 goal

Raised by 118 people in 13 months
Swami Shraddhananda (AKA Swami Mommy) is in need of financial support to help cover the overwhelming medical expenses resulting from her recent injuries. 

Currently, the family is paying out of pocket for Swami Mommy's healthcare costs not covered by IHSS (In Home Support Services).  Below is a breakdown of costs already incurred, as well as future anticipated expenses. Any amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated, along with prayers and blessings!


Breakdown:
1-month fully electric hospital bed rental - $480.65
Hospital bed linens - $107.97
Fully electric hospital bed purchase - $2,010.20
1-month transfer wheelchair rental - $168.19
Transfer wheelchair purchase - $238.14
Total medical supplies: $3,005.15

Caregiving expenses:

$4,240.00 x 6 months = $25,440

Currently five caregivers provide much needed assistance to Swami Mommy totaling 70 hours per week.  The monthly cost above what is paid by IHSS to pay these five caregivers comes to approximately $4,240.00.

Total: $30,721 (includes gofundme fees)

Please help us get the word out, and THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

Yours,
Swami Mommy's Family

Dear All,

Well, we've reached a milestone!

Exactly one year ago to the day, Swamimommy suffered a compound fracture to her left ankle requiring her to have 7-day a week caregiving.

We made it through the first year, yay!

We've come a long way, and it is thanks to all of you!!!

So, once again THANK YOU! for your donations, prayers, and good thoughts!

May You Have a Happy, Safe, Peaceful, and Joyful Holiday Surrounded by Your Loved Ones!

With Much Love and Gratitude From Us All,

Ramana, Swamimommy, and Veena

Dear All!

Well...you may be surprised to hear from this campaign again as we had suspended it for several months... However, here we are, just after Thanksgiving and "Giving Tuesday" with the December holidays fast approaching...

AND, we find ourselves in the difficult position of Swamimommy continuing to need seven-day a week care, with the funds we raised before nearly completely depleted!

Therefore, during this traditional time of gratitude and giving, we are temporarily re-opening this campaign.

For those of you wishing to support a very good and local cause during this holiday season, Swami and her caregivers could really, really use the financial assistance, as well as prayers for Swami's continued regaining of strength and healing!

For those of you who have already provided support, and for those of you who wish to do the same now, it is with deepest gratitude and many many thanks that we will accept any and all such gifts!

Happy Happy & Safe Holidays To One and All!!!
With Much Love from Us All,

Swamimommy, Ramana, Veena, and all of Swami's Caregivers

Dear All,
Well, here we are at the end of August...
As of September 1st, we will end this campaign, so that leaves only the few hours left of today and tomorrow if you feel inclined to make a final donation towards Swamimommy's ongoing caregiving costs.

As this is also my final update, I just want to once again shout out a massive THANK YOU!!! to all of you who have been so incredibly supportive of Swami and this campaign - through donations, prayers, good thoughts, and blessings! We are so humbled and grateful for all of your amazing generosity!

With Best Wishes and Much Love From Us All,

Ramana, Swamimommy and Veena

Dear All,

Well, last Sunday we celebrated Swamimommy's birthday at my sister's house. I'm posting here a photo taken at the party where she celebrated it with her family and our good friend Sarana (shown in the photo) who shares the same birthday!

Also, I am posting to say that we have decided to end this Gofundme campaign by the end of this month. Although we haven't managed to meet our original goal, the amount we have raised so far has been so tremendously helpful that words just fail to convey our deep gratitude and appreciation to all of you who have contributed, and for all the prayers and blessings sent Swamimommy's way!

We are humbled by the generosity coming from so many people all around the world! We are so blessed!!

Though the need for funds to help pay caregiving costs remains high, we feel this campaign has largely run it's course, and we will have to make adjustments in other ways. Therefore, until the end of August, we will gladly accept any gifts through Gofundme that anyone feels inclined to give. They will be accepted with many many thanks and deepest gratitude!

AGAIN, THANK YOU! For all you have done and continue to do!!!

With Much Love From Us All,
Ramana, Veena, and Swamimommy
Happy Birthday Swamimommy & Sarana!
