Why am I fundraising?
Since he was three, he frequently suffered from fever. We did many medical examinations. But we could not identify the reason. He missed a whole academic year (2011-2012) due to being unwell.
One of my brother referred us to Dr ASWATH, COIMBATORE. That doctor examined his complete medical history and looked at the medical reports from at KMCH, Coimbatore. He directed us to Oncology & Haematology Dept., CMC Hospital, Vellore.
We went to Vellore and conducted more tests. We were told that our child had 'THALASSEMIA'.
Our doctor in Coimbatore advised to us, take regular treatment for this disease and told us that Harisudhan would become seriously ill if we did not get blood transfusions. We live in Madurai, so we were referred to Dr. JAYABOSE, Paediatrics Oncology Dept., Meenakshi Mission Hospital, Madurai.
Since then 2012, we go to Meenakshi Mission Hospital, for the regular blood transfusions twice a month.
Two months back, we were given some hope for our son's situation. The doctor told us we could opt for a bone-marrow transplant for Harisudhan. Last September, samples from my elder daughter were sent to New York, US., to check for compatibility. In 15 days, we learnt that she was a good match as a bone-marrow donor. We truly felt blessed by God.
Now the doctors are ready to proceed with the transplant. Unfortunately, I am unable to bear the expenses of this transplant (Rs. 10 lakhs) and the post transplant expenses (approxmately Rs. 5 lakhs).
As per the doctor's advise, the patient needs to stay in isolation & take regular checkups for the next 90 days.
So I kindly request that amount from charitable donors.
PLEASE DO THE NEEDFUL AND SAVE MY SON'S LIFE.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
I want to get bone-marrow transplant treatment for Harisudhan. Please find the estimation letter from the hospital below
