The Story

Dear friends,

As many of you know, Krishnan Sastrigal Mama has been battling kidney failure for the past several months. He is currently back in the hospital for internal bleeding, with hopes to begin dialysis soon. He is also on the waitlist for a kidney transplant.

Krishnan Mama has truly been a great asset to our community and we are truly blessed to have his guidance and selfless service. The family is grateful to be surrounded by so many well wishers during this difficult time. We have set up this fundraiser to provide a simple way for those who wish to contribute monetarily towards his medical and family expenses. Please join us to help lighten the financial burden and pray for his speedy recovery. Please also help spread the word through your social networks to maximize the impact.

We will also use this platform to share updates on his progress.

May the Goddess bless you all!

Thank you very much!

The graceful Mother removes evil and develops goodness within all of us.
She is the power of Brahman; pure consciousness embodied. She is the bliss of "Sat - Chit - Ananda" existence, knowledge and bliss.

All of our prayers have been answered and we finally have some good news to share:
Krishnan Mama has been discharged to go home this afternoon!

The bleeding has evidently reduced but he is still under careful monitoring for other symptoms. We will continue to provide updates as the situation progresses.

Many thanks to everyone once again!

P.S. - Kindly coordinate with Revathi Mami prior to visits to their house. Thanks!

Dear friends,

THANK YOU for your continued support for and enquiries about Krishnan Mama. We are astonished at the success of this fundraiser and are in the process of setting up a trust fund to ensure proper use of these donations and that they do not cause any implications to Mama's current Medical assistance or taxes. 

Update as of today:
  • The internal bleeding has still not stopped
  • Mama had a blood transfusion done yesterday to offset some of the blood that is being lost
  • Hemoglobin levels have increased since the weekend but still need to continue to raise
Revathi Mami has specifically requested for our continued prayers at this time as the doctors themselves have asked for us to pray for the bleeding to cease.

May Ambal continue to shower Her blessings on Mama and his family for a speedy recovery!

Thank you all again! 

P.S. - If any of you would like to work with us on setup of the trust fund (especially doctors or lawyers), please reach out to me by clicking "Contact Organizer" on the main page - we could use your expertise :)
