It is with a very heavy heart, I write this about my friend, Ravi.
Ravi Varaganti, a devoted husband and loving father of two small children went to ER for pain in his shoulder and left wrist. He was diagnosed on April 8th, 2019 with a very aggressive malignant spinal cord tumor – grade IV Diffuse Midline Glioma. This form of cancer is extremely fast growing, is very rare and is inoperable. We are exploring all options including clinical trials. Since entering the hospital in April Ravi has not be able to work and provide for his family.
Those who know Ravi would vouch for him being the most loyal of friends, a caring hard working family man. Ravi’s 7 year old son suffers from a severe case of AUTISM. Ravi is also blessed with a 9 month old baby girl. His wife is home-maker. He needs the support, prayers, and funds to help him and his family through these rough days ahead.
We are requesting funds as soon as possible to help with all aspects of his treatment and to help support his two young children and wife. Since his diagnosis he’s had an emergency surgical biopsy that has left him completely bedridden. He is currently undergoing aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. This sudden diagnosis has been devastating to Ravi and all of our family.
Ravi needs round the clock supervision and expensive therapy sessions. Any small donation would go long way to save him and help his family. Please keep us all in your prayers.
