At first, almost two years ago, Javed suffered searing pain in his kidneys. He immediately went to the hospital, where he was put on dialysis. After a few months of dialysis, the doctor advised a kidney transplant. Out of sheer love and compassion, his wife donated him her kidney, and Javed had a successful renal transplant. Now, Javed needs immunosuppressive therapy.
Immunosuppressive therapy is a drug regimen that lowers the body’s immune response. These drugs help doctors stop the immune system from overreacting and damaging transplanted organs and tissues. Most of the patients have to take immunosuppressant drugs for longer after receiving an organ transplant.
Javed Akhtar is the sole earner of the family. He works at a private firm and hardly earns his living. Due to his disease, his work life suffered a lot as well. Therefore, he cannot arrange for his immunosuppressive therapy. We urge you to please donate for Javed’s immunosuppressive therapy.
“My beloved wife has sacrificed so much for me. When I first started going through rounds of dialysis, I lost all hope and thought I would not survive this exhaustion. But, then my wife donated her kidney to keep me alive. Now, whenever I start to lose hope due to the circumstances, I remind myself that I need to stay alive for her and my kids. They are the love of my life.” -Javed Akhtar.
Unable to afford the medication to gain his immunity back, Javed Akhtar spent a lot of days sulking in hopelessness. At last, someone told him about Transparent Hands. He came here and registered his case with us. We have assured him that we will arrange his medication as soon as he can. Now, all we need is your kind help. Please donate for Javed’s immunosuppressive therapy and put his life out of danger.
