I am fundraising for my 2 year old son, Hitarth who has blood cancer. Please come and contribute to save his life. Every support counts!

Dear Friends 

I hope that this message reaches you and that I am able to convey my concerns to you. My 2.6 year-old kid Hitarth Patel is currently admitted in Apollo Ahmedabad. He is currently living with Blood Cancer along with Bone Marrow Failure (MDS-AML)
I belong to a middle class family. My child was suffering since August 2015 we were trying everything to detect what the problem was, but even after spending hard-earned money (nearly 7-8 lakhs) we could not find the cause of his illness. Finally in mid November, doctors told us that his BONE MARROW was not functioning and was FAILING.

After consulting city doctors about the cost of the procedure, we were in deep trouble and so we decided to check with the Civil Hospital (Govt. Hospital). But when we checked if the hospital had proper transplant facilities, they told us it was only limited to Adults. And so, there is no Pediatric Emergency care for such small kids for this particular illness.  Having left with no choice we went to Apollo hospital @ Ahmedabad.

When we were about to start the search for the Bone Marrow donor, the doctors found that Hitarth had been attacked with Blood Cancer (AML) and we started his treatment there itself. But the cost is very high which is out of our hands. The further course of treatment is mandatory. And we are not in a situation to handle the cost of it.

As understood from doctors that this disease in small kids is very very rare.

Considering the criticality and the situation, I on behalf of my family request you to pray for the little soul.

I know that God will listen our prayers. 

God will always bless the person who helps the needy.

Dear Supporter,

We are deeply saddened to inform you that Hitarth passed away today morning. We received the news from his father Dhyanesh. Hitarth was on supportive care at home for the past few days. His condition deteriorated yesterday night and he passed away at around 6.35 am today.

It has been a difficult journey for the family for the past few months and we hope they find strength in this time of grief. May the little one's soul rest in peace.

Dear Supporter,

We have an update from Hitarth's father.

Dear all,

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. You all are there in our prayers every day.

Hitarth is at home. It is very hard for me to say that he is on pain killers. Every 2 days, he has to undergo platelets transfusion to stop bleeding. This is followed by blood transfusions. Doctors have informed there is nothing much to do for Hitarth. He is not responding to treatment. As parents, we cannot give up, we want to see our son alive but he is happy to be around us and is disturbed by treatment procedures.  When I receive calls from few of you, I really want to tell you he is well, recovering but he is not. Your support helped him till now, to be with us.  Amidst the pressure to settle pending bills and looking for options to help Hitarth, I am unable to express what we are going through during our calls. We are grateful to you for helping our son's treatment till now. It really hurts me to tell you this news.

He is on supportive treatment to take his pain away. It was not easy to know that there is no way to help Hitarth or to decide that we cannot do anything further for him, but Hitarth's little body cannot take more harsh treatment. We have realised that and now we are doing our best to keep him comfortable. Do keep our son in your prayers. Thank you for helping us till now. We wouldn't have had our son with us till now if not for your timely help.

Dear Supporter,

We have an update from Dhyanesh.

Hitarth is stable but there is no treatment except the blood transfusions every 3 to 4 days. He is having a fever and the food intake has reduced. The Hospital has given us some discount, but we still have to pay 15 lakhs.

I would like to thank each of you for your support and prayers. I get calls from supporters and I am blessed to have  so many people concerned and praying for my son.

Thank you once again.
