Story

Hello. My name is Bhima Shankar. I am 10 years old. Most children my age are healthy. They can go out with their friends, play cricket, enjoy the rains, get dirty and even roll in germs if they wish. Me? My parents would keep me in a bubble if they could. I have a condition called, Thalassemia Major. Not many people understand it. I did not know about it until I was much older, took me a while to understand. It is a kind of anemia, and I have to keep getting blood transfusions to stay alive. 

Appa says I can beat this disease. He said I do not have to stay in fear of what might happen. I can play too. I can grow up to be strong and do as I wish. I have so many dreams, and I can fulfill them. I need a bone marrow transplant. Without the surgery, I know what could happen to my life. I want to live, not just survive or exist.

Appa cannot afford the cost. It is over Rs. 12.5 Lakhs. In 10 years, every month he has spent Rs. 12,000 for me. He has not been able to save that much money.

I ask for your help, to give us a chance to live. My father, my mother, my sisters, and me. So far, we have all been surviving, struggling to get by on whatever we had. If my health gets better. We can have a simple and happy life.

I can have a life, with your help.
