Jiyaan Mehta's Medical Expense
Our son Jiyaan, an amazingly energetic, fun loving and vibrant 4-years was suddenly struck with a dangerous high fever (103 – 106) for many consecutive days with a multitude of symptoms and eventually air lifted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia from Princeton Hospital emergency room.
The horrid symptoms fever, rash, irregular heartbeat, uncontrolled blood-pressure level, digestive and nervous system impact aligned with the extremely rare Kawasaki disease. At this time, medical science does not have any confirmed tests to identify Kawasaki strain and thus various tests were needed over a period of time to confirm it by process of elimination. This condition change our fun loving little son into above picture.
This long drawn diagnosis/treatment process put Jiyaan through various complicated medical procedures like center line ( 3 days of sedation) , various drugs and weeks of hospitalization. The family went through much grief and concern witnessing his suffering continuing through months of follow- ups and appointments to date.
With best wishes and blessing from family & friends, Jiyaan is doing good and out of danger now.
Unfortunately, this happened during job change window wherein new health insurance was not effective. Following several unsuccessful attempts to settle/negotiate/get assistance from many programs, the family is being put through much financial strain amongst many other challenges. The total bills even after negotiation amount up to a few hundred thousand dollars!!!!!
It s an impossible amount to fulfill with one average income, mortgage and usual household expense for a family of four. Payment plans are not approved and do not qualify for negotiated amounts which more than double the bills.
It’s a sad yet hopeful moment when we seek compassion and empathy for Jiyaan. He loves playing hide-n-seek, puzzles, drawing, Story telling and listening is a big part of his life. Jiyaan goes to pre-k, where is adored for his sweetness and kindness. We hope that his energy creates the vibration of kindness towards him from family, friends and well wishers alike pouring into the funds being raised here in interest of the continued well being of Jiyaan and his family.
Each donation regardless of the amount is priceless in the ultimate value delivered which is beyond bills!!!
“what is impossible for one could be very easy when many come together to create this circle of support, prayers and positive energies”
With love and gratitude
