Dear Supporter,

We have a great news to share. Gopika is discharged from the hospital and is doing well. She is staying with her parents in a rented house near the hospital. She goes twice a week to the hospital to take injections. She gave a blood test today. Further treatment will be decided once the test results are out.  She is active and taking food.

We will keep you posted with more updates in the coming days.

The following appeal has been written on behalf of Srinivas

Why AM I Fundraising?

My name is Srinivas and I am from Anaicut district in Andhra Pradesh. I live with my wife, Ramya, and my 3-year-old daughter, Gopika. When my daughter was 2 years old, we came to know from the doctors that she is suffering from Griscelli’s Syndrome type II with Hemophagocytic lympho-histiocytosis (HLH).

Doctors told that it is very rare condition and the treatment needs to begin immediately. We were shocked to hear this but what can we do, we had to quickly arrange for the money. I work as a helper in a sweet shop near Vellore and earn only Rs 350. I have only completed grade 6 and is not qualified for a better paying job. My wife is a homemaker and takes care of Gopika.

We mortgaged our only house and got some money. We have to take her to the hospital three days a week. He develops a very high fever at times and becomes critical. Doctors informed that a bone marrow transplant is a solution to help my daughter. My wife and I were tested and found to be 50% match to become the donor.

Need For Funds

The cost for treatment is Rs 25 lakhs. I am struggling to even pay for her weekly treatment and I don't know how I will manage this huge amount. My elder brother is polio-stricken and is dependent on us. My sisters have been trying their best to support me.

Any help from you will save my child. You can donate through this campaign and the funds will be transferred to the hospital. I will ensure all of you get details on the treatment regularly.
