Help Dinusha Heal
Organized by: Thulashitha RD
In May, 2014 while at work, Dinusha just 28 then, complained of a sever pain in her back and was rushed to hospital where she was diagnosed with kidney failure.
Since 2009 Dinu has had a medical condition- "Lupus" ( a chronic disease where your immune system attacks your own tissues and organs) for which she's been under heavy steroid medication which might have been the reason for failure of both her kidneys.
To add to her misery, her main heart valve was infected with a vegetation and in September 2015 she had to undergo a major open heart surgery to replace a valve at Lanka hospitals, Srilanka. Later in October 2015 she suffered a stroke and her left side was completely paralyzed. As she was recovering from this she recently got a pneumonia attack. With the grace of God she has surpassed these obstacles and is on the road to recovery.
Dinusha's consulting Nephrologist Dr Surjit Somiah and cardiologiest of Lanka Hospitals PLC have advised and given the ok for a kidney transplant scheduled for Jan,2016 which would cost USD 30,000 (4M SLR) and are looking out for a O+ donor with a graft match. Dinusha's father is a retiree with no source of income and her husband too is a marginal income earner. She too had to unfortunately discontinue from work because of her medical situation.
So far more than Rs. 6.5 m (50,000 US $)has been spent on her medical. Many generous friends and family have supported financially that helped her get through her heart surgery (SL Rs 2.5 million) and 150+ dialysis.
- Cost for each dialysis - Rs. 15,000/00 (105 US $)
- monthly - 15 dialysis minimum needed, costing more than Rs. 250,000 ( Approx. 1600 US $) per month with drugs and doctor's charges.
This page was started to get the message to many kind hearts out there that are willing to help Dinu and her family get through this tough time. We believe that with God's blessings and with your generosity she will return to normalcy soon.
