Muhammed Thanseeh to undergo Bone Marrow Transplantation
Muhammed Thanseeh, only 10, son of Mustafa Thottarathodi Poduvannikkavil who belongs to a remote village Othukkungal here in Malappuram District, Kerala, has been going thorough most perilous condition of his life. Due to the lack of corpuscles in his body, he has been suffering constant wounds in his body caused by strong itching and severe pain throughout the body. Sometimes when it gets strong it is looking terrible, itching which he never stops and turns to big wounds, bleeding from nose and often vomits blood. We can’t even imagine the kind of pain our Thanseeh is going through. In some occasions, he can’t even talk but crying. When he completey loses his power, looks drained out, inactive, and doesn’t want to wake up, that is when we know that the disease is getting worse. Seeing his pathetic condition parents and other relatives are quiet helpless as they could only cry beside him.
This incurable disease caught him when he turned 90 day after he was born. Though he underwent a lot of treatments and surgery but resulted in vain. Thanseeh, now in fifth standard, can’t pursue his education and compelled staying home for months.
Even though several treatments and surgeries were done but it resulted nothing. According to Dr, Revathiraj, Chennai Appolo Hospital, and other eminent doctors from Calicut Medical College, it is Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome (WAS) by which his body being wounded.
Finally, after plenty of treatments failed, doctors suggested his family to make him undergo bone marrow transplantation surgery as there is no other alternative solution. The surgery is to be expected about 30 lakhs which is beyond his family’s means. For several times, his family has spent more than 5 lakhs for his treatment who is currently being treated in Calicut Medical College. According to his father Musthafa, who works in Madrasa for cheap salary, the amount of surgery is too big; this is never to be accumulated by him. To save his life the whole native people has joined their hands and has formed a committee under the leadership of Mahal Qazi Sayyid Hyder Ali Shihab Thangal, Kerala state president of IUML. Also people from our community in Malappuram and Kozhikkode are crowd funding to help us, so we are trying to raise the half of the amount.
We hope your benevolence, kindness and wholeheartedly support for our beloved Thanseeh. It is extremely depressing for us to see our Thanseeh like this. We are broken-hearted thinking about what might happen, but right now all the flurry of work around the transplant is keeping us distracting from the terrible thoughts. We think this transplant surgery will give him a pain-free, healthy shot at growing up and living a happy long life.
