Help Archana & Arpana

Hello friends,

This is the worst thing that could ever happen to a parent. It is a sad and heart throbbing incident happened in Murray, KY on Nov 12, 2010. Twin sisters Archana and Arpana Gambiraopet doing their MS in Chemistry at Murray University, KY have met with an accident involving a truck.Friday late night Arpana succumbed at the hospital. Archana is in a critical condition at Vanderbilt Medical Centre Trauma unit. She had a surgery done on Saturday morning, but due to the major injury to the spinal cord she has been paralyzed below her shoulders.

We are very thankful to Telugu Association of North America (TANA) for helping us in getting Arpana’s body to their parents in Hyderabad.

We know that there is nothing anyone can do to lighten their parents heart, but we can help them to meet their medical expenses. As they were to graduate this December, they did not renew their health insurance.

We humbly request you to generously donate for this noble cause. We greatly appreciate every contribution you make.

  1. While I appreciate posting this for good cause, it is defintely mischevious to publish the photo on the home page of these beautiful women below their necks. I hope it is a honest mistake and will be corrected asap.

    • good catch. Corrected. Please refresh the page if you still see old pics.
