Help Chandan Undergo A Bone Marrow Transplant

Chandan shah an eleven-year-old boy from Bihar, Ramapur has had leukaemia for quite some time. It was first in 2007 when Chandan was around 2 years that the parents- Ranjeet Shah and Chinta Devi took him to the local doctor in Ramapur. Chandan’s health started to deteriorate due to fever. The local doctor there sent him to a hospital in a bigger town in Bihar. After a bone marrow test he was diagnosed with leukemia.

The doctor from the town suggested Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) in Mumbai and said that the doctors at TMH would have a cure for this disease. So, with his whole family and a whole lot of hope he left for Mumbai.

Ranjeet and Chinta devi also have a daughter and another son. Three children- the daughter being the eldest, followed by Chandan and a younger son. Chinta devi is a stay at home mother helping Ranjeet run the household. He has a small piece of land in his village, growing and selling his crops is how he feeds the rest of his family.

After moving to Mumbai for Chandan’s treatment Ranjeet Shah took up a job as a street hawker- selling clothes near TMH. He earns around Rs.7000 a month. He slowly joined all his children in school. Chandan had to take a chemo injection every 7 days. Although the immediate effect of Chemo was pretty mortifying for Chandan and his family to take it, but over the years he has started to become better. He used to pay for the treatment through various trusts such as Ratan tata and cancer society.

Soon as Chandan showed a considerable improvement in his health and they went back to their village in Bihar. Again in 2012 when Chandan’s health started to worsen, they came back to Mumbai for the chemo injections. As Chandan did not show any improvement, the doctor at TMH decided for a blood cell transplantation to offer a permanent cure for Chandan.

Ranjeet Shah has exhausted all the money he saved up under the trusts and cannot afford this permanent cure with his meager earnings of Rs.7000 a month. This is where we need your help in supporting Ranjeet Shah see a permanent cure for his son Chandan Shah.

The approximate cost for the transplantation is 12lakhs and here is a supporting document.

Dear Donors,

A heartfelt thank you to all you 122 supporters for such an overwhelming response. The contribution made by each of you means a lot to Chandan and his family.

Here is a quick update on Chandan’s health before he undergoes a bone marrow transplant. Last week on Monday i.e. 6th March, he was given a chemo injection which cost around INR 18000, after which he was called to see the doctor on 14th March. The doctors were looking forward to admit him yesterday.

Due to lack of strength and poor health, soon after entering the hospital, Chandan fell down and endured a mini injury in his leg. This resulted in a slight swelling. He underwent three X-rays for the same. We are happy to learn that all the reports were clear. However, the doctors did not want to take any chances and rush the BMT. So Chandan has been prescribed a 3-day antibiotic course, so that he heals his injury completely.
Also, as a side effect of chemo, he had experienced mouth sores which led to bleeding in the mouth. He has a visit scheduled at the hospital tomorrow i.e. 16th March for a dental treatment to ensure that he does not experience any bleeding at the time of his BMT.

Chandan is expected to get admitted on 20th March for his BMT. We are positive that he is being looked after by proficient doctors and is being well taken care of. Do keep him in your prayers. He needs it the most at this point.

We will keep you updated. Thank you once again for all your support!
