Collaboration between two Johnites to help with a successful kidney transplantation

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Dr Titus Augustine and Dr Vincent,

Let me have a chance to express my deepest gratitude for your incredible efforts and support to save Mr Amare Mezgebu who had faced a deadly kidney disease by simply saying " You are extraordinary; thank you very much!".
I am totally baffled by the story that I heard from Mr Amare regarding the support they got particularly from Dr Vincent.
May the almighty God bless your life, work, and family. I wish you a long live.
The following post is copied from my social media pages FYI.
A couple of months ago, we appealed for help to save our x-uni friend Deacon Amare Mezgebu, a college teacher and father of two who had faced a total failure of his two kidneys (see this video:
Thanks to the Almighty God that he now has made through a successful Liv-Donor Kidney Transplantation at the Narayanan Health Hospital in Bangalore and reunited with his family in Ethiopia. He and his kidney donor, the mother, are currently in a very good health.
Dozens of thanks to Dr Titus Augustine of Manchester Royal Infirmary who showed incredible sympathy and helped Mr Amare get connected and access treatments at a much far discounted rate in Bangalore; Dr Lloyd Vincent who led the transplantation and offered extraordinary ongoing support to Dn Amare and to the kidney donor and his team at NH as well as everyone who helped him financially, by prayers, and in any other way.
In the group photo left to right: W/ro Tirualem - Amare's Kidney donor and mother, Dn Amare, Dr Lloyd Vincent, W/ro Tadila attendee and Dn Amar's wife.

We had 33 bonders' on record excluding the rural sr docs who were not fact for the academic exercise/refresher course in the morning, we registered around 72 Johnites! Thanks to Dr Tom Jose our Orthopaedic Johnite for the didactic talk & the 'hands-on' demonstration that was a novel idea & went down well with the bonders (2003 PG batch if am correct...Jino will know best...again he does not seem to be on here...please convey our greets...he was on call & put things on hold just to do his session on orthopaedics & leave!) Thanks to Binu Joy too who delivered the session on 'Radiology' needless to say to an audience paying rapt attention.Thanks to all the other bonders & friends' of the gr8 Jino who did a lot of the odds-n-ends work & were indispensable...please do tag them all on this thread Jino even if I forget names. Thanks to Dasari Prudhvi for the photography along with Binu Joy.

Thanks to all who came along for the 'boat-ride' after the sessions were over & made it a special occasion.
A Big Thank you to Deepu George for taking over the reins of the newly formed South India Chapter along with his team...Dr Sr Annie Sheela, Dr Babu Francis (Big Bobs), Dr Alex Chakiath & the demure but dependent Dimple George.

Last but not the least by any means, a HUGE THANK YOU to ALL the JOHNITES in KERALA (many of whom postponed prior commitments to be there with us & some who could not come & expressed their inability but were there in 'spirit'!)...take a Bow ladies & Meenakshi Ramoo Bharath has said, there were senior johnites from the first batch to the junior-most bonders' & thanks to all who voiced their opinions including the Sr Docs & our jfbg heart-throb Kuriakose Skaria @ the GBM we held where it was truly wonderful that we got to hear each one's name & batch & what they do nowadays.....that was the highlight of the day for me! We had a few good laughs...quite a that I remember was when Sanjiv informed us that batch of '81 had beaten batch of '82(who were all asked to raise their hands & duly did so,,,bakras ) 27-0 on the hockey pitch!!
