Help Luellin Leo fight Multiple Sclerosis


‪#‎LuellinLeo‬ was 23 years old when he was diagnosed with‪ #‎MultipleSclerosis‬ in 2012. 

Multiple Sclerosis or MS is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system, i.e. the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves, causing paralysis, loss of vision and numbness in the limbs.

To control his deteriorating condition, Luellin has to take an expensive drug called Natalizumab that costs around INR 80,000 every month. Other than this injection, additional expenses include Physiotherapy, Speech therapy and other hospitalization fees which altogether, amounts to INR 1 lakh (approx $1200) every month!

A single injection costs INR 80,000 (approx $1200) every month!

Doctors say that this needs to continue for the next 3 years which works out to INR 43 lakhs or just over $60,000. Before we raise the entire amount, we're hoping to cover his medical expenses for the next few months while we explore alternative treatment.

If you would like to Luellin in his fight against MS, here's what you can do -

Dear Supporters,
Here is an update on Lulu's health.

Lulu's condition had deteriorated in the month of Jan. He was in ICU for a couple of days and was running a temperature of 205F. He was admitted to NIMHANS during this time.

He started taking injections and medicines again in April when his condition became a little stable. The physiotherapy will continue until he recovers and starts limb movements properly.
Thank you so much for coming forward to help him. Please share the campaign and pray for his speedy recovery.

Regards,
Team Milaap
