Our heart is pounding as I write this. As most of you know, we are going through a series of unfortunate events in our life. Our mother Mrs. Bhageerathi Amma is admitted to Sunnybrook Hospital on March 07,2021 due to massive Stroke(Aneurysm) which caused severe brain damage. She went into Coma stage at first after her stroke and woke up after 21 days. Now moved to Markham Stouffville Hospital for Acute Medicine treatments. As per doctors, her current critical condition needs time to recover completely and the journey to a normal life is is going to be a long emotional and physical battle.
Our mother came to Canada on visit visa and within a week her treatments, the expenses crossed her health insurance limit. Lockdown and unavailability of flights made it extremely tough for us to get her back to Kerala, India for further treatments. Meanwhile, the doctors, health care team and support members in hospital have informed us that our Mother needs to be on life support at home and a lot of rehab services and specialized equipment are needed to keep her alive. Under the circumstances we go through here, we are anxious that her recovery seems to be on toss being in Canada. We must take her back to Kerala, India and that’s the only possible way to bring her back to life. In this situation we can’t have a room for doubts and a single wrong step now will cost our mother’s life. Trust us, there is no more terrified state in your life than watching your loved one struggle with life and not able to do what could save her from that pain.
Her battle with life has been going on for months now and as her son and daughter in law, even though it’s heart wrenching to watch her in immense pain; the way she fights for life with every single bit of energy she has got in her keep us determined to get her back to normal life at any cost. “Alone we do so little, together we can do so much”, isn’t it?
We have started GoFundMe to help our mother Bhageerathi Amma to meet the costs associated with her repatriation. We understand that we all are going through extremely challenging time now, but we trust that if you have a slightest possibility to help us through this, you will support us no matter what. You are our light at end of this darkest tunnel we go through. We fold our hands with gratitude for every single penny you share to support us.
We will keep posting updates about her recovery as often as we can and we sincerely want to thank all of you who stand with us like a string pillar of hopes.
We need your support, there is no pain harder than loosing our mother.
