Help my 21 months old daughter Maanvi Undergo BMT for Thalassemia

Our daughter Maanvi was born with a rare genetic disorder called Thalassemia. It is a condition in which the body is unable to produce hemoglobin and hence require blood transfusion every 3-4 weeks, life long. With every blood transfusions excess iron from blood(ferritin) is deposited in major organs like heart, liver, spleen etc can cause major problems in future. There is also risks of blood transmitted disease like hepatitis A, B, HIV etc.

She was only three months old when she was diagnosed with beta thalassemia major. It was the worst day of our life when we came to know that our little princess would need regular blood transfusions throughout her life to survive and that she won't be with us for too long as average age for Thalassemia patients is 20-25. It's heart wrenching to think this way that even after monthly transfusions and chelation therapy, the age span is so less. 

The only cure for this disorder is Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) from a fully matched donor. Both of us (parents) were not a match. we begun to find unrelated donor for our daughter.

After months and months of searching, we have got an unrelated donor from USA, ready to donate bone marrow for our princess. It costed us 17 lakhs for donor cells including shipping, handling and customs. 
Maanvi started Chemotherapy on 22nd May 2017 and was given a rigorous regime of 3 types of chemotherapy for 7 days in order to delete her present bone marrow. also her immunity is fully suppressed to enable acceptance of new stem cells. She was transfused with donor stem cells on 29th May. Next 15 days he has to be kept in a isolated and  sterile environment to protect from infections. unfortunately she got viral infections, since then she is in CCU (Critical care unit). including hospital cost total is estimated to be 50 - 60 lakhs. 

Now that she is shown improvement and responding to treatment as well, we need 25 lakhs more for continued treatment. 

Today, we as parents request from all of you to pray for our child's recovery and provide any kind of support possible. We have started this campaign to raise funds for our daughter. We will be grateful for your kind and timely help.

Maanvi got discharged today but still she is very weak physically and her BP is to be monitored hourly along with having fever spiked in the nights. We are thankful to all our tiny little angel's well wishers. But still it's a long way to go as she still needs another 6 months utmost care and we need to put up in Chennai only at an adjacent place to the hospital,so please keep on supporting our campaign as we still need funds to manage and most importantly all the prayers and well wishes.
