My father needs a heart bypass surgery soon to live. The operation cost $25000. Please help save a Life! Every dollar counts!

My father has been the best person I have known in my life. Unfortunately, two days ago, he was admitted to the hospital due to chest pain. The doctors diagnosed that he had a heart attack and needs a heart Bypass surgery as quickly as possible. 

So here is the reason for my letter. The surgery is going to cost him around $25,000 in India. The doctors are not going to perform the surgery without the payment. As a daughter I want to do everything I can to save my fathers life. I will fight for his life and do whatever it takes to get him healthy again. I can’t even begin to think of the sacrifices he has done so that his children can have a better life. 

My father grew up in a small town in India and has been married to my mother since 1967. They have three daughters and I am the middle daughter. In those days having daughters as children were considered a burden because the daughters move away and don't help with the work and they cost the family money. The daughter also requires a dowry. I still remember those days where boys were very well taken care of from parents where as the girls were left to take care of themselves. Having three daughters as children, my parents were treated poorly by the society when we were growing up. However I must say that my parents never let us feel that way. They didn’t think of us burdens in their life. My father was worked as a Clerk in a small factory making Rs 2500 ($50) a month. He was hard working man and everyday rode his bicycle for 2 miles to get to work. He worked at the factory until his retirement. With the small salary, somehow he managed to take care of us. He never made us feel that you can’t do something because you are a girl. He was very inspiring and believed in us. He did everything he could so we can have a better life. He even paid for all three daughters weddings which can be pretty expensive in India. As a father he fulfilled his responsibilities. He didn’t have much savings for his retirement. 

I live in colorado, USA and am very saddened by the fact that my father is in the hospital right now. Now it is time for me to fulfill the responsibility as a daughter. I think I can do this with all your support. I kindly ask all of you please make a donation to save my father. With your help, I am positive that we can give my father his life back again.
