26-year old Josmy has been suffering from kidney failure for over 7 years. She had a kidney transplant at the age of 17, her mom being the donor. But after 3 years, the donated kidney failed. She has been undergoing dialysis thrice a week for the past few years while searching for another suitable donor.
Currently, they found a donor, the crossmatch has been successful and other tests are going on for the transplant scheduled for next month. Josmy was a bright student, a fighter, and an optimist but years of treatment has made her very weak. Despite this, she faces the situation with a smile. She is from a very poor family and her father is a rickshaw driver. He has been finding money for all the dialysis, medications, and tests for several years with the help of a lot of kind souls.
Josmy is now undergoing treatment at ASTER MIMS, KOZHIKODE, KERALA. The cost of the transplant and post-transplant treatment is around 12 lakhs. For a family that is struggling to find money for their day-to-day expenses, this amount is beyond what they can manage. So they reached out to MicroCharity for financial assistance.
