Sullia: Woman writes to CM for financial help or mercy killing due to rare disease

Daijiworld Media Network – Sullia (MS)

Sullia, Jul 9: Chandini G D (33), a resident of Navoor in the taluk, is suffering from a rare disease called Hyper IgE Syndrome and has requested the government to help her financially for medical treatment.

Chandini has emailed chief minister (CM) Siddaramaiah and health minister Dinesh Gundu Rao, seeking financial assistance for her medical treatment or permission for mercy killing.

In her letter to the CM and health minister, Chandini mentioned, “Although I received medical treatment for my disease in my native place, there was no improvement. Doctors in Sullia advised me to get admitted to AIG Hospital in Hyderabad for further treatment. The doctors at AIG diagnosed me with a rare disease called Hyper IgE Mediated Cell Activation Syndrome, which causes severe allergies (Anaphylaxis). I was treated once at AIG. Later, I went to Wenlock Hospital in Mangaluru, where the doctors told me that no treatment was available for my disease. I learned that some hospitals in Bengaluru provide treatment for my condition and wrote a letter to health minister Dinesh Gundu Rao and other higher officials of the health department. However, they did not respond.

“As my health deteriorated, I got admitted to AIG Hospital in Hyderabad on the advice of doctors from KMC Hospital in Mangaluru. My local community arranged an ambulance for me. Since there was no letter from the health department to cover the expenses of my treatment, AIG Hospital authorities stopped my treatment twice. Although I received assurances from the government, the necessary funds were not provided. So, I request mercy killing through this letter,” she stated.

Deputy commissioner Mullai Muhilan said, “The DHO has already taken necessary action to bring this matter to the government’s notice. Chandini, who belongs to the ST community, is the daughter of Dhananjaya Naik, is married, and has one child.”

Daari Association’s Ravi Bangera said that the health department should immediately respond to Chandini’s need for medical treatment and save her life. Daari Association is making all efforts to support Chandini’s fight to obtain the necessary funds for her treatment.

Chandini sent a suicide note on WhatsApp to DHO Dr H R Thimmaiah on June 21, stating that the health minister and the MLA of Sullia would be responsible for her death. However, the DHO asked her not to make any hasty decisions and assured her that he had already discussed the matter with higher officials in the state government.

    Sad .This poor woman should be treated without cast and greed:When not in govt.Hospital where else?When a minister comes in to peep in hospital they bow and run back of him or treat everything possible.Why then a Person like Mukesh Ambani brought prominent stars through heli for sons engegement and many days feast.That money he could have donated to one such person in sons name would have saved her life?She would have lived for her kid .Instead of floating money for luxus.What a waste and what a difference it makes.Wish her still good health.She must live for her child .How about raising a fund for such woman to save and treat?

    This is a genetic disorder. The treatment is symptomatic and supportive where the patient can survive for a fairly long period . There is no known cure, but stem cell therapy may help.

    She deserves a chance to live... I am sure govt. will consider treatment costs for her... For an ordinary life living with normal condition itself is a challenge... He helplessness has to be addressed on urgent basis...

    Why MLA of sullia and belthangdy not coming forward to help her as they speak hinduism. Help to each other without looking at religion is humanity. I request Govt of karnataka take action in this regards and help her to live and recover from such diease.
