Help 1 Year Old Baby Prakrith Fight High Risk Blood Cancer

Prakrith 1_year old baby, my son should be walking, start talking and discovering life now. Instead, he is fighting the worst disease that can ever inflict a person, that too for a child. 1_year old baby Prakrith has been diagnosed with High Risk Blood Cancer (B-lineage Lymphoblastic Leukemia, B-All) and has been undergoing intensive treatment at Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital (Chennai) since September 15, 2017.

In order to control the disease, the doctors have prescribed chemotherapy and intensive treatment for 3 years and 5 years of continuous treatment. Chemotherapy sessions have already started and he has been under keen observation from last 15 days. The baby still limps, platelets count has gone down to 8000 (Normal platelets count should be 200000), lost 2kg in 2 days, and complaints of severe diarrhea and fever.
My baby looks normal and happy on the outside, but he is slowly succumbing to this disease on the inside, and he can't even tell us. Even the slightest change in his condition needs to be reported to the doctor or his life could be in danger. 
Estimated cost for this initial treatment is 10 lakhs and expected to go up to if his condition worsens, and we are finding it very hard to put together the amount, post the previously incurred cost of treatment. I have drawn down almost all my savings and earnings and spent on my mother Meera who is also diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer and she is under the treatment since March 2017 till date in JIPMER Hospital, Puducherry. Please help Prakrith make it through and lead a healthy life with us hereafter. Your contribution will largely help us to save our child's life.

Dear supporters,

Thank you for your tremendous support and love.

 After lot of admissions owing to side effects, we have entered the last cycle of intensive chemotherapy. This cycle is expected to go for 2 months if there are no side effects. But this is the crucial one as he would develop fevers of temperature up to 105F. In the last cycle, he developed severe eye infection (conjunctivitis) which lasted for 3 weeks. He also had recurrent fevers which was a side effect of chemotherapy.

He has started to talk. He spoke his first words " DADDY". He has also learnt to say 'illa' for water. Happy that he has started to speak. With God’s grace, if this last cycle goes smooth, we would go to the Maintenance Phase. This phase is planned for 2 years.

Please keep praying for him.
