Thank you so much for your kind support and prayers.
I would like to share an important update with you that Priyanshu was being taken to Kokilaben Hospital, Mumbai from Bhopal because of his deteriorating health condition and he needed immediate relief while we are raising funds to make go to Boston for treatment. After looking at the condition i.e. Shortness of breath, Body part during blue and also swelling on his face, Doctor’s at Kokilaben Hospital did Echo test of Priyanshu along with some other tests. They updated similar information and regretted to treat him because of the pressure of blood in the heart and it could be fatal for Priyanshu if they even try to anything there. He met Dr. Suresh Rao and other Doctors at Kokilaben Hospital. They gave medicine which could bring some temporary relief to the Baby but still were not sure about it. Considering his condition, It’s not easy to control his bleeding and Cyanosis effects with medicine. So we have to get this surgery done as soon as possible.
Later they mentioned about the Boston Children’s Hospital and said that it is possible there but not anywhere in India. They also mentioned that his surgery would be one of the biggest and critical surgery. Considering winter season which is not good for Priyanshu we are shifting Priyanshu to Pune from Bhopal at his maternal uncle place.
According to Doctor’s we really don’t have much time. So far with all kind support we have managed to raise around Rs. 28 Lakh (USD 43,000) and still need around Rs. 37 Lakh (USD 57,000) for his life saving surgery excluding other charges which would increase the overall cost between Rs. 85 Lakh (USD 130K to USD 150K) to Rs. 1 Crore including airfare, stay, pre and post surgery expenses.
We are under extreme pressure to arrange the funds for his treatment quickly and because the amount is so high, we are trying to reach as many people as we can who may donate but so far we have managed only Rs. 28 L and need much more in the shortest time period.
We need another push!! I sincerely seek your help on behalf of the helpless father who fears for his baby as the hours tick away therefore requesting you again to please keep support and also spread the word within your family and friends. Please share an appeal on Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp and help to connect with people or organizations which can support to save his life.

I would like to share an update with you that Priyanshu is not well and as we know that winters are really scary for him. Since few days he is been taking breathe very fast and also complained about pain in his left leg which is because of heart disease.
Today morning when Sagar – father of Priyanshu woke up he got scared to notice that his son was bleeding from nose. I am sharing these scary image.
Doctor has again asked to get his surgery done as soon as possible because he really don’t have much time.
With all you kind support and helping hands we have managed to raise around Rs. 22,37,100/- and still falling short with Rs. 42,62,900/- for his life saving surgery.
(Message shared by his father)
I have also tried to get in touch with Indian Community in Boston but unfortunately didn’t got any response so far. Have also written an Open letter to all Members of Parliament including Members of Legislative Assembly also to save Priyanshu who is from their own state but unfortunately there is no response from them either. Which is the reason that why he is only dependent on this campaign.
Here, I would like to request you again to please support and also help to spread the word within your family and friends. Please share an appeal on Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp and help to connect with people or organizations which can support to save his life.
About the Fundraiser
Sagar Meshram 3 years son Priyanshu has complex Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) which is complex being more of a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and Double Outlet Right Ventricle (DORV) – where his impure and pure blood are getting mixed thereby seriously damaging his lungs.
Sagar Meshram is a poor painter who works on daily wages in Bhopal. On 22nd August 2014 his Son Priyansu Meshram was born and after 4 months he was diagnosed with severe pneumonia. He was then admitted to Miracle Hospital in Bhopal where later we was referred to AIIMS New Delhi as Doctors there were unable to diagnosed further.
Priyanshu is having a big hole in this heart which is why it was difficult for all the doctors.
Doctor at AIIMS had refused to do the treatment by saying that they are too late for his treatment but the doctors at Fortis Hospital New Delhi told Sagar that his Son’s ailment cannot be cured but they can add span of few years by doing three operations. With Govt support he managed to get the surgery done.
Later he went to Narayan Hrdyalaya and several other hospitals also who had refused clearly to do the treatment. Now when Sagar contacted Fortis Hospital for second surgery then they told him that it cannot be done because the pressure at heart was very high and blood is going to lungs very fast which they can’t control.
Sagar is an uneducated labor but because of his son’s health he became internet savvy and started exploring all the option to save his son. One day he found the video of Boston Hospital where he saw the ray of hope. He then contacted them through mails. After several mails he was able to coordinate to them and they asked all his medical reports.
Boston Hospital got agreed that surgery is possible and this ailment can be cured too. They gave cardiovascular global discount estimate of USD 1,00,557/- which is equivalent to around Rs. 66 Lakhs in India currency.
There are many news articles published about Sagar and Priyanshu. Sagar has knocked every possible door to save his child but unfortunately nothing has worked till now.
