Please help our kid beat blood cancer

Harish Raghavendra is our 13 year old son. He has a little brother. He was recently diagnosed with blood cancer (Acute Myeloid Leukemia or AML m2). We have admitted him to Kanchi Kamakoti Childs Trust Hospital, Chennai. He started receiving chemotherapy a few days back and one week of chemo course has been completed.

The doctors at this hospital have given us an estimated cost of Rs. 8-10 lakhs for the next six months. We are frightened about his condition and also feel helpless about the money we have to spend for the treatment. The doctors say that the whole treatment and related therapies will take up to five years and will cost up to Rs. 30 lakhs.

I'm Sadish Kumar, his father, working in a travel agency near Mahabalipuram. We live in Thirukkazhukkundram, a small town in Tamil Nadu. We are a typical middle class family that can't afford this treatment.

Harish is a very active child who is always up to some mischief. Effects of his disease, such as tumors around eyes and bleeding, have started showing and he has become bed-ridden. His doctors say chemo will make it worse and he will need expensive medication to counter its effects.

It's unbearable to see him like this. He gets angry and has not fully realized his condition. He has seen his grandmother survive breast cancer and go through a serious relapse again. We have seen what cancer can do to adults. We want to save Harish from the horror.

Dear donors, we appeal to you to help him have his childhood, save him so that he lives a normal, fun life as much as possible. Any help is appreciated.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your love and support.

With inexplicable grief, we're having to inform you all that Harish passed away.

He underwent a bone marrow marrow transplant and I was the donor for my son. But unfortunately, his body did not accept the transplant and he started developing infections which gradually became severe. His white blood cell and the red blood cell counts kept plummeting and even after providing the best medical care possible, we couldn't save him.

Thank you everyone for being so supportive.

Dear supporters,

Here is an update on Harish's health.

The bone marrow transplant has been done on Friday (20 Apr 2018) @ 4.00 pm and procedure took 30 minutes.  He is under close observation. Yesterday onwards (23 Apr 2018) they started cemo for 2days. As a side effect he is suffered from vomit and urinal infection. He is unable to take solid food past 4 days.  As he is on close observation only Mother or Father allowed to enter with full covered dress with mask as due to Harish's low immunity. Harish require AB Positive Platelets on urgent basis. Kindly share it to  your friends and relatives.

Thank you
