We often think of ailments like high cholesterol or high blood pressure as age related or adult health issues. But you’d be surprised to find that most of these conditions that are progressive in nature actually start at a very early age. In fact, so many children today suffer from heart diseases such as congenital heart diseases, Kawasaki diseases, atherosclerosis, and so on. The contributing factors include lifestyle related habits, eating disorders, obesity, environmental effects, and genetics. Living with heart diseases, or living with a loved one who suffers from a heart diseases is not easy, but for a child to have heart problems at a young age is tragic.
Fortunately, modern medicine and technology has allowed us to battle these diseases with various medications, and treatments. But there is another challenge to overcome – all these medications and treatments come at very high costs, the kind that most of the Indian population is unable to afford. This is why, cardiac diseases in some children go undetected and untreated, and they grow into adults who then have their own children with genetic predisposition to get the same heart diseases. The clear solution to this problem is to make treatments for heart disease, especially among children, more accessible to all. As a crowdfunding India platform, we at Impact Guru have had a lot of experience in assisting families to get funding for medical treatment, which is why we believe it is a viable solution to ensure treatment for children with heart disease.
An effective crowdfunding campaign can help children and their parents/ caregivers overcome so many financial constraints associated with treatment of heart disease in children. Through the donations collected you may be in a position to cover doctor’s fees, lab tests, treatments procedures, surgery, medications, and rehabilitative care. It has always been thought that medical loans and insurance schemes will rescue a family from urgent medical expenses. However, we need to understand that this stands true only for a small part of the Indian population. Most people cannot afford a medical insurance, nor are they able to get loans due to weak financial backgrounds. For such people, the world of crowdfunding India is a blessing.
The process is quite simple – you start an online medical crowdfunding India campaign on the Impact Guru website, write an appeal explaining your financial predicament, and share your campaign with friends, family, and even strangers, through Facebook, Whatsapp, Email, Twitter, and so on. Reach out to as many people as possible, from India and across the world. You’ll be surprised to see how many well-wishers are out there, who’re happy to come forward a make a donation towards a cause that matters. If there’s a child out there who is suffering from any heart disease, let it be known that they no longer have to forego or compromise on quality of treatment because financial assistance can always be found at Impact Guru.
