He is a Grade 1 Forester with the Forest Department of Assam.  His mother's name is Anjali and she is a homemaker.Dhrobojit has a elder brother whose name is Manthan.
This Forest Department Official's Son is fighting for his life.
A couple of months back, Dhrobojit's head started spinning while in school. Both his parents rushed to school to bring him back to home. He stumbled and fell twice when walking back home as well. He then faced heavy fever for the rest of the day.
They took him to the local doctor who ordered a blood test. She observed a low platelet count and recommended them to visit GMC, Guwahati.
It has been months and Dhrubojit is still suffering
At GMC, the fever did not reduce for 2 days. They suggested getting a bone marrow test done to check for cancer. That's when they realized the gravity of the situation and immediately decided to come to Apollo Hospitals, Chennai. They had heard that the quality of treatment is very good.
"When we came to Chennai, we didn't know it would cost so much. We had to sell of a property for the treatment."

Dear supporters,

I am Debotri, a Milaap fellow. Here is an update on Dhrubojit's health.

I spoke to his father, Kishore Basunatary, this morning. "Dhrubojit has recovered a lot and is doing good with each passing day. He got discharged on 4th April and currently we are in Assam ” he said.

Dhrubojit was diagnosed with blood cancer in October 2016 and was advised to undergo 4 cycles of chemotherapy. He and his parents were staying at a rented house near Apollo Hospital, Chennai.

He has completed 4 cycles of chemotherapy in March. The first cycle was the longest, which continued for 1 month and 6 days. While the second and the third cycles went for 21 days and 18 days respectively. The fourth cycle started on 27th March. After the chemotherapy, he got discharged on 4th April 2017.

His latest reports indicated the haemoglobin count to be 10.9, red blood cells count to be 14000 while the white blood cells count was 6300. Although he is climbing the ladder of improvement, he feels fatigue at times.

The family has spent almost more than 13 lakhs for his treatment. The expenses for medication is also quite expensive. But the thought of their child keeps them going. I  spoke to Dhrubojit also. He told me how much he misses those football matches played back in school and wishes to play as soon as possible.

"We just wanted to say Thank You in the biggest way possible. You gave us hope and courage when we completely broke down", said the parents.

Kishore and Anjali have sacrificed almost everything to save their child. They have requested another help from you all- to share this fundraiser campaign with your network to get more support. This will help them manage the costs of follow-ups and tests.

Thank you once again. We will keep you posted on his progress.
