Mohammed Arshad a 35 year old from Allahabad who was once full of happiness and optimism and was enjoying life with a beautiful loving wife and two naughty children (age 5 years & 6 months respectively). He had a very small scale marble fitting business (contractor) which helped him earning his bread and butter with an annual income of Rs 60,000/-.
For about 4-6 months he underwent medical treatment at Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Science Lucknow (A relatively cheap hospital), however still the bill raised against his treatment was Rs. 3-3.5 Lakhs. With his condition deteriorating day by day, his case was becoming difficult and hence the doctors in PGI Lucknow advised him to consult Medanta Hospital. Medanta being an expensive hospital, Arshad initially refused to get treated there however his family and friends motivated him and assured that the funds would be arranged.
In February 2017, he visited Medanta - The Medicity Hospital where several tests were conducted to identify the stage of the disease and the further course of action. His doctor, Dr. Pratibha Dhiman suggested that the only option left was Allogenic Unrelated Bone Marrow Transplant as none of his family member proved to be his potential match.
Mohammed Arshad’s case is one of the few astonishing cases as he found a willing unrelated bone marrow donor within a short period of time. However since Arshad has no funds remaining the cost of the transplant proves to be a major hurdle. The estimated cost of the treatment including hospitalization, investigation, medicines, diagnostics procedures, professional charges, & other miscellaneous expenses is likely to be Rs. 15,00, 000/- to 20,00, 000 ( Fifteen Lakhs to Twenty Lakhs) approximately.
Till date he has already taken Rs. 11,00,000/-(Eleven Lakhs) as monetary help from is extended family (brothers and other relatives) and hence there is very little scope of borrowing money from them again.
Since Arshad is left with no alternate source to gather this huge amount. Therefore, it’s a kind request to all to help us raise this amount so that there are no hindrances in his treatment and he can soon go back to his home to celebrate EID with his kids and wife.
