My father, Sandeep Aggarwal has been suffering from Liver Cirrhosis and Variceal bleeding (i.e. bleeding from veins which leads to blood vomiting or bleeding through motions) for six years now. Presently, he is admitted to the Institute Of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) Vasant Kunj, Delhi. Over the last 6 months, occurrences of profuse internal bleeding have taken place 7 times. His condition is slowly deteriorating and he is also unable to speak now. Due to this, the doctor has suggested a TIPS surgery to stop the bleeding.
The approximate cost for pre and post-surgery treatment as estimated by the Institute Of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) Vasant Kunj, Delhi is INR 4L.
My father’s surgery is inevitable and the doctors are just waiting for a go-ahead from our side. We are running into a severe financial crisis due to the heavy expenditure on my father’s treatment over the last 5-6 years. My father is a salaried man, he works as a middle-level employee at the MCD School, Delhi. We absolutely don’t have any other source of income, whatsoever. The expenditure on surgery and treatment would cost about 4L.
THIS CAMPAIGN AIMS TO RAISE INR 2L OR MORE TO HELP MY FATHER RECEIVE HIS TREATMENT.
Sandeep Aggarwal is a single parent. He has two children, Rebekah Aggarwal, 16, and Robin Aggarwal who is 13 years old. As such, there is no family support. My brother and I are currently looking after him. This surgery is really urgent and it will be performed only once the payments are made to the hospital. In this time of personal crisis and in order to help my father survive, I appeal to all of you to kindly help raise the funds to save my father. I shall be forever indebted and obliged to everyone who reaches out to me with a helping hand, during these trying times.
We are hoping and praying for him to get well soon at the earliest.
TEST REPORTS FROM THE INSTITUTE
The least you can do as friends and fellow human beings is give a little so that together we can make a big difference to our father's life and our family. The funds we are raising will be enough to help pay for his treatment. So please continue funding till the last day, irrespective of the amount we raise, as the more we collect the more costs are covered.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
