A 4-year-old kid Deepak, who is the son of a driver from Tirupur, Tamil Nadu, India is suffering from a rare blood cancer kind of a disease known as 'Thalassemia Major'.
Thalassemias are inherited blood disorders that cause the body to make fewer healthy red blood cells and less hemoglobin than normal.
Stem cell transplantation is identified as the treatment for this disease by Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, Coimbatore, India. The original cost estimate of this treatment given by the hospital was INR Rs.12,50,000 (USD $20,000 approximately).
But due to some unavoidable circumstances, Deepak is now shifted to a different hospital KMCH, in the same Coimbatore city. the doctors said that he had to undergo multiple cycles of chemotherapy, before the transplant which increased the expense to Rs.34,00,000 (around $55,000). Now that chemo was completed, Deepak is getting started with the stem cell transplant process.
As the poor family of this kid, Deepak from a village in Tirupur cannot put together such a huge amount, they are pleading for help from people like us.
Kindly do your bit to save the life of an innocent kid. Thank you!
