Husband turns to crowdfunding to treat his wife who suffers from a serious lung disease

A 36-year-old woman has turned to crowdfunding as a last resort to gather funds to pay for her a serious lung ailment which she has been suffering from since the last two years. As the family is currently running low on funds they had no other option but to use the medium of crowdfunding to finance her treatment. They have sent out an humble appeal online to help them in whatever way possible


Rupali Patil, a 36-year-old resident from Jaisinghpur in Kolhapur, Maharashtra is suffering from a serious lung ailment. She has been suffering from pulmonary hypertension for the past two years.

Doctors who are treating her stated that the only way to save her life is by lung transplantation.

But as they belong to a middle-class family, they are facing an acute funds crunch. Her family has now sought the help of netizens and are trying their best to arrange funds through crowdfunding online.

Rupali is currently undergoing treatment at Chennai’s Global Gleneagles Hospital

While speaking to My Medical Mantra Sandip Patil, Rupali’s husband said, “Initially we didn’t know Rupali has been suffering from pulmonary hypertension. Since the past month, she has been undergoing treatment in Chennai’s Global Gleneagles Hospital. She needs a lung transplant surgery on an urgent basis. Otherwise, it will have impacts on her heart, liver, and brain as well.”

Patil added, “Lung transplant surgery is very expensive. The total estimate is 35 lakhs, and post-surgery treatment will require another 15 lakh rupees. Whatever money we had we have spent on her treatment till now. So, we have appealed to people to help Rupali. Through crowdfunding campaign, we are trying to arrange for the funds. I would appeal to the people, please come forward to save my wife.”
