    This fundraiser will benefit

    Amanul Rahman

    from Kochi, Kerala

Amanul Rahman is a 7 year old boy diagnosed with Thalassemia major at 9 months of age. Children suffering fom this condition are unable to produce red blood cells effectively and become severely anemic. Since infancy he has been on regular blood transfusions for managing this condition.His requirement for blood transfusion is increasing over time and he has developed complications like stunted growth, hormonal issues due to his condition. Major organs like his heart ,liver ,pancreas are iron overloaded due to frequent blood transfusions.He has to spend a lot of time in hospital for managing these issues, when he should be at school studying and playing like other children.

Only way to cure him completely and get him to a normal life is to do bone marrow transplantation by which he will be given normal stem cells from a healthy donor, which will start producing enough blood in his marrow. Fortunately for him , his younger brother is a full match and can donate his stem cells.The only hurdle for his transplant is the cost of the procedure. He is from a poor socio-economic background and treatment so far has been partly funded by various charities and from whatever his parents can spare from their meagre income. He needs to do the transplant at the earliest before he develops other major complications which may make this procedure difficult.
