While most of her organs have been recovered after an expensive treatment, Varalakshmi’s needs kidney transplantation

Till recently, the husband and wife duo of Vamshi and Varalakshmi (25) literally had world at their feet. Varalakshmi was selected and posted as a school assistant in Gadwal through District Selection Committee (DSC) exam. The couple, who already have a four-year-old boy, were getting ready to welcome their second child.

On February 22, Varalakshmi got admitted to a local hospital in Mahabubnagar.

The couple were blessed with a girl but later complications arose. The young mother, who had already joined as the school assistant just a fortnight ago, suffered multiple organ failure and was rushed Durgabai Deshmukh Hospital and later to Care Hospital, Banjara Hills.

Multiple organ failure

The 25-year-old mother struggled with multiple organ failure for two months.

“We had to sell our lands to incur the medical expenses. In two months, we ended up spending close to Rs.25 lakh towards medical bills. Gradually, all her organs recovered except for kidneys, which have failed,” said Vamshi.

Needs kidney transplantation

At present, the couple are spending close to Rs.15,000 every month for Varalakshmi’s dialysis, drugs and travel expenses from Dilsukhnagar to Care Hospital. Doctors maintained that the young mother needs kidney transplantation.

“We have registered my wife’s name for organ donation under the ‘Jeevandan’ scheme. We need all possible help from kind-hearted persons,” Vamshi said.
