Boy Who Donated His Prize Money To Save Others Could Now Die

Amsavalli was inconsolable as she sat beside her unconscious son, Dhayananth, in the ambulance. She was shaking his body…asking him to wake up and see his amma. She thought she had lost her son. The doctors, however, told her that there is hope. But Dhayananth needs an immediate liver transplant - that's his only chance at survival.

While talking about him she shows us a piece of a newspaper clipping.

“He has always made us proud. From being a topper in his class to winning state-level prizes in swimming. Once he won a state-level swimming competition. But my 10-year-old son donated his prize money for families of soldiers who were martyred in the Pulwama attack. My husband and I had tears of happiness in our eyes then. But now…he is lying in the hospital bed speechless. He hasn’t opened his eyes in a week and if he doesn’t get the transplant soon…my Dhayananth will leave us forever” – Amsavalli, mother.

Dhayananth was a healthy child but a normal fever two months back turned out to be a life-threatening condition for this boy.

In a matter of a few days, Dhayananth got very critical

“We gave him medicine but the fever did not subside. He started vomiting continuously. He had gone to the toilet and didn’t return even after 15 minutes. Panicked, I rushed to check on him…he was leaning against the wall. His legs were wobbling…he couldn’t take a step and was looking drowsy. It’s when I noticed that his stools were grey and I knew something grave is troubling my child’s health” – Murugesh, father

In a few minutes, Dhaya passed out and he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. There he was diagnosed to have liver failure and the only option suggested to save him now is a liver transplant. His tummy has started swelling overnight and he is now treated for stability and fed through tubes.

"Dhaya loved helping everyone and now when he is fighting for life, no one is ready to help him back"

"My wife and I are not matched donors for Dhaya. And no one from our family is ready to be his donor…we are counting on a cadaver liver. It’s my son’s only possibility at life” – Murugesh, father

From the admission charges to medicines for Dhaya’s treatment, he has spent around 8 lakhs till now. Murugesh is a teacher and he hasn’t gone to work in three months due to his son’s treatment.



“I have already taken loans and mortgaged my wife’s jewels to treat him. His cadaver liver may come any minute but my child will get a transplant only if I pay the full amount. 35 lakhs is something beyond my means…but I’m trying. Every day I make calls to my colleagues, friends and family hoping to borrow some money. But no one is generous enough to help me," - Murugesh, father.

 Only your kind contributions can save Dhayananth’s life now. You are this parent's only hope in giving their son a life-saving liver transplant.

Dear Supporters,

As we informed in the previous update, we were supposed to transfer the remaining funds to Master Prem Anand and Baby Prapti. Please find the links below.   -

 https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-prem-anand-1
 https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-baby-prapti-panda. 

But fortunately, both the campaigns have raised sufficient amount through crowdfunding to start the immediate treatment. Hence we are not transferring the remaining amount from Dhayanath's campaign to the above mentioned campaigns.

However we would like to inform that there is another patient - Chinni Krishna  from the same hospital, who needs to undergo his Small Bowel Transplant tonight (11-02-2020) and there is a shortage of funds for his transplant. Hence, post discussing with the hospital and taking the consent from Dhayanath's family, we will be transferring the rest of the amount from Dhayanath's campaign to Chinni Krishna's campaign. Please find the link for Chinni Krishna's campaign.

All donors of this campaign will receive periodic updates on the status of Chinni Krishna's health and treatment via emails and messages.

Dear Supporters,

As mentioned in the previous update, the outstanding amount of Rs. 4 lacs out of 12 lacs has been cleared and is utilised from the campaign. The remaining amount has been covered through insurance. With regards to remaining amount available, we are channalising it to 2 other patients who are in need of funds for their medical treatment.

We are transferring approximately Rs. 10.2 lacs to 5 month old Prapti. She is suffering from Osteopetrosis from the past few months. She is currently admitted and receiving medication and has to undergo a Bone Marrow Transplant. Her family is completely dependent on money raised through crowdfunding for her treatment as they have exhausted all their sources. Here is the campaign link.

We are transferring another Rs. 10.5 lacs to 13 year old Prem Anand's campaign. He has been diagnosed with a kidney disorder and the only treatment available for him is a Kidney Transplant. He is admitted in Apollo Hospital Chennai for the same.

Even though Dhayananth could not make it, we are trying to make sure that your donations are impacting the lives of multiple other children. Thanks again for your love and support.

Thanks for all the love and support.

As mentioned in the update posted on 16th January, Master Dhayanath is no more. Post discussion with the hospital, we are given to understand that as on date there is a current outstanding of Rs 12 Lakhs with the hospital. The family has paid approximately Rs. 4 Lakhs whereas the rest is expected to be recovered via insurance. Considering the same we would be immediately reimbursing the expenses incurred by the family in the hospital. The final approval for medical insurance is awaited and based on the approved insurance amount, further reimbursement due if any would be made towards the family's account.

After settling the family's expenses,  the balance funds is proposed to be utilised towards the treatment of other patients in urgent need of support.

To begin with, Aaradhana,  aged 6 years, and suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A form of Blood Cancer) requires intense chemotherapy to recover. They've only raised Rs 27,736 out of the required amount of Rs 10,00,000 so far. A sum of Rs 50,000 will be transferred towards her campaign from this campaign for the treatment to begin. Here's the link to their campaign -
