Urgent Fundraising – Ramesh (Stroke)



“I have no one to rely on. I only have my husband to depend on. I don’t know what to do if anything happens to my husband. Please help him so that he can undergo surgery.”

39-year-old lorry driver, Ramesh A/L Mogan, did not suffer from any illness earlier. However, he started to complain about headaches and dizziness in early January. He went to seek treatment, and tests showed that his health indications were usual, and he did not have hypertension or diabetes. Unexpectedly, he suddenly fainted after he was off from work a few days ago. His colleagues sent him to the hospital, and he was diagnosed with a stroke.

The doctor suggested referring him to the only specialist hospital in Northern Malaysia for Mechanical Thrombectomy. He failed to file a claim as he had just started a new insurance policy.

【The doctor informed the family that if he did not undergo surgery in time, he would miss the golden window for treatment, which would lead to lifelong paralysis, he might be in a vegetative state, or even lose his life】

Ramesh from Padang Serai, Kedah, parked his one-ton lorry at his workplace at around 5 pm a few days ago and was ready to leave work. While chatting with his colleagues, he suddenly lost consciousness and fainted. His colleagues, who witnessed his condition, quickly sent him to Bukit Mertajam Hospital. The doctor initially suspected a stroke and referred him to Seberang Jaya Hospital for a detailed examination.

The wife went to the hospital immediately upon receiving the news at home. When she called her husband, he could open his eyes but could not recognise her. Half of his body was paralysed, and he was not attentive. The detailed examination revealed he had a stroke. The doctor performed thrombolysis, but it was ineffective as the procedure could not remove the blood stasis. The doctor later suggested referring him to the specialist hospital for surgery. Otherwise, he would be paralysed for life or become a vegetable. The wife was distraught, and she cried for the public’s help.

Ramesh is a lorry driver with a monthly salary of RM1,760. His 34-year-old wife, Balamany A/P Arumugan, cannot work regularly due to asthma. She sews at home and earns a few hundred ringgit monthly to help the family. The couple has no children, but the husband needs to bear the family’s basic expenses. Therefore, the family cannot afford the surgical fee, and they are also worried about their living expenses in the future.

After an emergency review of the case, One Hope Charity decided to assist Ramesh in raising the medical expenditure he needed. His family agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the well-wishers on their behalf.
