Help My Daughter Live #HelpSaveAvishi

Ask for an update
28th September 2016
Dear Supporters,
Laxmi, a single mother, struggled to pay for her 6-year-old son, Vineet's treatment. Vineet had a head injury and needed long-term care. Laxmi's appeal to the public on Milaap raised treatment expenses for 6 months in 6 days. Vineet received the treatment he needed at Apollo, Bhubaneswar for 5 months. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts, Vineet passed away earlier in August.    

When Laxmi heard about Avishi, she reached out to us and expressed the desire to support it. She shared the below message with us.

"The struggle of Abhisek and Shikha is what I went through. When a treatment can cure your kid but you cannot make it happen for lack of money, the feeling cripples you. I would have never been able to arrange funds for Vineet's treatment if not for the timely support of 974 wonderful supporters. I request you to please come forward to support Avishi. We know what can cure her. Let's all come together and get her treatment started. You gave my son a chance, this daughter deserves one too."

To help Avishi's parents reach the goal faster, Laxmi has come forward to use the surplus funds worth INR 10 lakhs for Avishi's treatment. Contribute and spread the word to support Avishi.

Warmly,
Team Milaap 

About the campaign


Our daughter, Avishi has been diagnosed with MPS Type VI (Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 6) - a very rare, debilitating & life-threatening genetic disorder. If left untreated, expected life span would be age 20 to 25 years with deteriorating body condition every year.
 
Unfortunately she cannot receive treatment for this rare disease in India, as there are no expert medical centers with experience, cutting-edge technology and research for MPS. We need to quickly move her to UMC Utrecht (Netherlands) for required treatment. The hospital cost is (1,94,000 Euros or Rs. 1.47 crores). Add another Rs. 48 lakhs towards living expenses for 1-year at Netherlands. Total cost of treatment is Rs. 1.94 crores approximately.

We have tried knocking many doors with government authorities in India, met health minister of Rajasthan many times, newspaper & media coverage etc. A Government Committee was also formed by Health Minister of Rajasthan to look into the matter, but to no avail.

Your donations will go towards easing the burden of Avishi's treatment, medical care and incidental costs associated with a long stay away from home over the next several months. We need to act very quickly as the count goes in days.

During this difficult journey, your prayers and support will make a lot of difference. We look forward to seeing Avishi grow up normally, run around with the wind in her hair, dance with her parents at her wedding and enjoy everything that life can offer.
 
We will continue to update you on Avishi's treatment progress through this page, through Facebook and our website - www.helpsaveavishi.com

Thank you so much for your love, support and generosity !
 
-Abhisek Jain & Shikha Jain
(Avishi's father & mother)
