15-Year-Old Dipak Needs Your Help to Fight Blood Cancer
In 2013, 15-year-old Dipak developed a lingering fever that refused to go away. He had to undergo several tests and they confirmed that Dipak was suffering from Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, a cancer of white blood cells. He underwent a treatment and there was a significant improvement in his condition.
However, in the month of April, 2016, his condition again started deteriorating. This time, he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. His relapse was a shock for everyone in his family
Dipak's father Laxman is a daily wage labourer and the sole breadwinner of the family. They live in Andheri, Mumbai. Making the ends meet was difficult for Laxman. The news of his son's illness shattered him.
He, somehow, managed to get the initial amount for the treatment. He borrowed heavily from his relatives and friends. He has spent about Rs 6 lakhs on his son's chemotherapy treatment till date. As advised by Dipak's doctor, he needs to undergo a bone marrow transplant, and the estimated cost of the treatment is approximately Rs 15 lakhs.
