Anshif who hails from a remote village namely Elankur in Malappuram District, Kerala, has been diagnosed with Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome (WAS), a rare X-linked recessive disease which is life threatening.
Due to the special medical condition, he has been suffering constant wounds in his body followed by strong itching, bleeding, swelling on several parts of the body and severe pain throughout the body among other symptoms.This makes him unable to attend his classes.
Upon doctors’ advice, Anshif’s family has decided to go ahead with bone marrow transplantation, which is lone way to cure him at this stage. Anshif’s brother Anas will be serving as cell donor as his found be HLA matching the patient.
The transplantation will be held at Apollo hospital in Chennai, The overall cost of transplantation and subsequent expenses are expected to be cost about 15 lakhs, which is beyond his family’s means. For several times, his family has spent more than 5 lakhs for his treatment. According to his family, the amount of surgery is too big; this is never to be accumulated by them. To save his life, some of his brothers’ friends have come up with a crowd funding drive and are trying to raise the amount.
We hope your benevolence, kindness and wholeheartedly support for our beloved Anshif. It is extremely depressing to see our Babu, as we fondly call him, like this. We are broken-hearted thinking about what might happen. We think this transplant surgery will give him a pain-free, healthy shot at growing up and living a happy long life.
