    P. Aswanth

    from Karimnagar, Telangana

Dear Generous Donors and Supporters,
             Here is a medical need for an 8-year-old boy Aswanth suffering and experiencing a daily-hell from a rare disease called "Apert Syndrome" which attacks 1 in 10 lakh people. He can't eat food with his hands and can't wear slippers or shoe how we wear.

Unfortunately, it attacked Aswanth, the first child of Sammaiah and Ramadevi from Palakurthi village, Ramagundam Mandal, Karimnagar District of Telangana state.

Sammaiah is a lorry cleaner, and Ramadevi is a homemaker. They were unable to identify the disease at the early stage as they were uneducated. As you all know, their earning capacity is not sufficient to feed the family consisting of Aswanth and his two sisters (Twins —Harshini & Harshitha), this medical treatment became a heavy burden for them.

They feel very happy after giving birth to Aswanth as he is the first child and heir of their family, and who can take care of them in future when he has grown up. They dreamed a lot about him and his future. But, their happiness didn't last for long as this disease attacked their child. They spent all the money which they save it for their children’s future. They sold their ornaments and property whatever that they have to provide good treatment and make him a normal child.

Since two years, they spent lakhs of money on medicine, medical reports, and diagnosis methods by roaming around hospitals in Peddapally, Karimnagar, and Hyderabad. Now, Aswanth is at Karimnagar government hospital under the supervision of Dr. Ajay Kumar (Paediatrician). After few weeks of observation, Dr. Ajay Kumar referred him to NIMS Hospital Hyderabad. The doctors informed the parents that the estimated treatment cost would be approximately 10 lakh rupees, and initially, they should have 5 lakh rupees to start the treatment process which includes neuro & plastic surgery procedures. With this treatment, doctors can correct the present situation of Aswanth to a better situation with which he can walk properly, eat and go to school as other normal children do.
They shocked and worried a lot, can't do anything for their child and returned home. They are badly in need of money for treatment and awaiting help from generous donors. They are trying to get some help from Government and voluntary donors, but no use.

So, dear all generous donors, please help this poor child Aswanth and let him lead his normal life as other children do. Please donate whatever small or big amount you feel free and can do. Let’s us lit a light in his life and hope for his good future. Remember, your contribution will help him overcome this deadly disease “Apert” and means a lot to him!
