In 5 months my life turned upside-down. Because, 5 months ago, my mother got diagnosed with a rare form of bone marrow disorder. And it all started with simple mild reddish spots over her legs. We thought this could be some skin problem and went to have a general blood check, the result gave be a big shock on seeing the platelets counts were just 12000. The moment that couldn't be narrated by words. This is not fair that this could be digested on seeing my mother who is my living God. My whole life and world is my mother.
With no time we had to rush to family physician, then he told to have further diagnosis is required to know what it is and he directed for hematology dept. The hematologist then ordered for bone marrow biopsy. We waited a week for the result in fear that was not felt earlier in my life time. Finally the result came and Dr told us is a very rare bone marrow disorder, its called *Aplastic Anemia* where the bone marrow function is reduced by which the production of blood cells go down. As platelets are one among the 3 blood cells, it is very necessary for blood to clot when there is bleeding.
Dr explained the options of treatment as
1. Bone marrow transplant which costs 15 to 20 lakhs
2. Immunosuppressive ATG therapy which costs 10 lakhs approx
3. Medication with cyclosporine with eltrombopag

Dr discussed about bone marrow and enquired about sibling for donors and it's risk factors about the procedure, so Dr himself found its not right option for opting bone marrow transplant.
Then he gave initial  suggestion  to start up with 3rd option of oral medication with cyclosporine and eltrombopag thinking she might respond to it . He Also told us  to support her with blood and platelets as required on time based on blood test,  we also agreee and got the prescription, later we came to know the price of eltrombopag tab per day costs 4000 RS per day and it has to continue over a year.
As he told that she might require immediate platelets transfusion of a single donor to prevent bleeding and so on. Each time when we go for transfusion the cost of platelets and blood transfusion bills nearly 15 to 40 thousands based on need, we had done so many transfusion and spent all money on it.
We didn't want to give up. still we had  no way we need to spend on both transfusion and the costly medicines.But then we tried buying it by pledging gold and other sources.

Now that we are exhausted financially and also made our mind to opt the second choice of immunosuppressive ATG therapy, the only way to save her.
As several times we did blood and platelets transfusion. We couldn't see her in pain. No son or daughter would like to see parents suffering with pain. Further Dr also warned us the impact of several transfusion. Hence with no other options left we  are in need to opt the therapy as suggested at earliest.
Hence with no financial situation, to save her we didn't have any other option, as the government schemes and Mediclaim are not applicable too. Hence we are requesting here to all helping hearts to save my mother and give her life, as she our only strength to our whole family. My life time gratitude to all helping hearts.. my sincere thanks.. my prayers to God to bless all those supporting hearts who shared their hands to save my mother in advance..
With sincere thanks and regards
