Septicemia is the serious condition of bacteria infecting the bloodstream. Septicemia can develop from other infections in other parts of the body if they are not taken care of. These include Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), infections of the abdomen and even pneumonia. The bacteria and their toxins can be taken to different parts of the body through the blood, hence this is dangerous. If left untreated septicemia can turn into sepsis, which is an even more dangerous condition consisting of inflammation of various parts of the body. Septicemia must always be treated at a hospital.
There are certain people who are at greater risk of suffering from septicemia. These include people with suppressed immune systems, people using catheters and those on mechanical ventilation. Septicemia treatment, as a rule of thumb is expensive. This is because this is not a primary condition but a result of another serious medical condition. Families who have patients with this illness will mostly find themselves in need of financial assistance. Mostly, they have already struggled through illness and have low savings/financial resources at this point. Therefore, a person funding septicemia treatment needs all the assistance we can provide them with. Let me introduce you to the idea of crowdfunding.
But how do we provide this assistance? Do you remember the number of times someone has stopped you on the street and asked you for a donation for a cause? That is exactly the way to do this. Except, we are going to do it online. Raising money online has several advantages. The person asking for money can do it from their homes and need not run around. Moreover, people are more likely to contribute larger amounts from their bank accounts than they are from their regular purses. It is an advantageous position for the person asking for money. This process I just described to you is called crowdfunding. Crowdfunding is slowly becoming a substitute to medical insurance. Online crowdfunding platforms like Impact Guru which has raised 600 crores of rupees so far, have a very heavy traffic in medical crowdfunding and NGO crowdfunding.
So, you don’t need to worry about money if you have someone close to you suffering from septicemia. All you need to do is take the help of crowdfunding. You can visit the website of a crowdfunding platform like Impact Guru. There, you can start a fundraiser. This literally takes just 5 minutes. When you do this, do not forget to put all the medical details and records up. Soon, our Campaign Manager will get in touch with you. We can then work out the exact amount needed for treatment and strategies as to how to raise this amount. The very basic strategy all of us have is to share your fundraiser on social media. You can share with yours and we will share with ours. Your fundraiser can then travel through the internet of 15 countries as that is the number of countries Impact Guru has access to. Together nobody feels much of a pocket pinch. It is a brand new way of going Dutch. But with the international community!
