Kidney Patient Needs Help
Ludhiana, April 23 - Ramandeep Singh (27), a resident of Kubbe village near Samrala, is fighting a battle of life and death. Afflicted with end-stage renal failure, he is on twice-a-week maintenance dialysis and virtually bed-ridden since the past around eight months.
Doctors at Deep Hospital here have also advised renal transplant at the earliest and patient’s father Ranjit Singh is a willing donor, but the family with meagre resources is not in a position to arrange Rs 3 lakh needed for renal transplant.
Ranjit Singh, who earlier worked in a factory, said he had lost his job because he had to take his son for dialysis twice a week which took almost the entire day. "Even when he is at home, I have to look after my son. To raise funds for the management of the disease for the past more than four years and then for the dialysis, I had to sell 2 hectares of land, which was my only asset."
Ramandeep, as also his family, is now looking towards kind-hearted people of the region for financial assistance to continue life-sustaining dialysis and kidney transplant which seems to be the only ray of hope for the youth.
Those willing to extend a helping hand to the family can send their donations to Deep Hospital, 481, Model Town, Ludhiana, with "Treatment of Ramandeep Singh (nephrology)” written on the back side of cheques, drafts or on covering letter or else could get in touch with the patient (mobile number 098151-17513).
