Help Basavaraj Get Treatment For Leukemia

Basavaraj is a 7-year-old with blood cancer. Despite a years' treatment, he has not recovered and needs a bone-marrow transplant (BMT). His parents are daily-wage workers in a small village in Karnataka. Ningappa Talawar – the director of Basavaraj's school brought him to Bangalore for treatment. But his help is not enough and the family needs funds to save Basavaraj.

To his parents, Revannappa and Sangeeta, Basavaraj looked fine. There was just a swelling in his stomach – but he seemed all right otherwise. His classmates teased him about it and even his teachers noticed it. One teacher in particular wanted to make sure his parents got it checked out.

Basavaraj's parents are migrant labourers in the small village Tadavalaga in Bijapur, Karnataka. Revannappa goes out looking for work in and around Tadavalaga. His wife Sangeeta works as domestic help in houses nearby. Together they manage to make Rs 10,000 per month to take care of their children Basavaraj and Pallavi.

When Basavaraj's teacher came home to tell them that their son needed to be taken to the hospital – their first response was that hospitals were for people with money. Their son didn't 'look' sick. But their son's teacher Kallad 'Sir' insisted.

Basavaraj is happy because he has taken his medicines religiously and the swelling in his stomach is gone. He is looking forward to going back to school and playing with his friends. No one has the heart to tell him that to live, he must undergo a transplant.  

For Revannappa and Sangeeta, Ningappa is a saviour who saved their son's life. He travelled with Basavaraj's family to Bangalore eight times and guided them in the big city. For the last one year, he has followed up with the doctors at Narayana Hrudayalaya making sure that Basavaraj's treatment is on track.

Dear Supporters,

We all came together to help Basavaraj is a 7-year-old with blood cancer undergo a bone marrow transplant. Despite the best efforts of the hospital, they tried reaching out to Basavaraj's parents but they got no response from the family.

Here is the letter from the hospital:

Around the same time, Nagaraju, a farmer with half an acre of land in their hometown in Tumkur, Karnataka was raising funds for his daughter, Tejaswini’s bone marrow transplant.

 With irregular work and a meagre income, its impossible for Nagaraju to arrange for the 20 lakhs required for Tejaswini’s bone marrow transplant. They have spent 2 lakhs for her treatment so far after much difficulty and now are in no condition to get more funds.

Tejaswini has been sick for a year now. However, her condition has drastically deteriorated in the past 3 months because of the rare, severe blood disorder that she’s been living with.

Funds collected for this campaign will be mapped towards Tejaswani's campaign.
