Now the only option is a bone marrow transplant .His younger sister (8 months old) or  his mother is the matched donor , but the transplant will cost close to 35 Lakhs INR.
With your kind contribution, Little Kevin can start to go back to his happy life from the deadly blood cancer.


Story..


Little Kevin ,8 years old has been fighting blood cancer since last year.
He has been diagnosed with relapse AML from 2018.

The past year has been cruel for Kevin.
Kevin was a happy, playful child before this dreadful disease.

He is a 3rd grade student of Isabella de Rosis Public School,Thevarkad, Varapuzha, Ernakulam.
He is the elder son of Jomon and Simi,lives in Kottuvally,North Paravoor, Ernakulam.

Kevin was first diagnosed with this acute blood cancer in 2018,
After the diagnosis Kevin went through countless sessions of chemotherapy.


Unfortunately, his reports revealed that his cancer has relapsed. Now, only a bone marrow transplant can save him. Kevin’s sister, 8 months old baby or his mother is a matched donor.All his pain he suffered will go in vain without an Allogenic stem cell transplant.He needs this at the earliest to survive.

Kevin has been very brave through his chemo sessions.He wants to beat this disease. But he can do it only with your help.

His parents,Jomon and Simi, who are completely caught off-guard by this emergency situation, cannot arrange a huge amount of 30-35 lakhs for the transplant. With your help, Kevin can go back home cancer-free.

Jomon and Simi hid nothing from Kevin. They wanted him to be prepared for the long, difficult fight ahead of him. They told him about his cancer, but also told him that he is strong enough to fight this disease.There’s hope for Kevin – his sister or mother can save his life.

Kevin's parents always tried to do their best to keep him happy and cheerful, playing with him to distract him from the pain, but it’s not enough. Kevin needs the transplant, but his parents can’t afford the huge amount that can save him.

Kevin's father Jomon is an Auto rickshaw driver while his wife Simi is a housewife.He is the sole breadwinner of the family.But he cannot go for his work regularly now because of Kevin’s hospital treatments and necessities. He has already borrowed a huge amount of money and with the help of other kind hearted people spent 8-10 lakhs on his treatments, hospital charges and chemo sessions.  But for them arranging around 35 lakhs INR for the bone marrow transplant is an impossible task.They have no one else to turn to,other than Us.

Kevin has all the strength and energy to fight this disease but without your kind contribution, he can't get the transplant he needs.

"I want to study.I want to play with my friends.But am so tired now.It's been an year since I went to school.Please help me to come out of this pathetic disease.I want to live..." said Kevin.

"My poor son knows that he has blood cancer. He also knows that he needs a transplant and that we don’t have the means to afford his treatment. This time, his condition is worse and he needs a very expensive bone marrow transplant costing Rs 30 lakhs. How will a poor man like me afford it? Please help me,”-" said Jomon, Kevin's father.

These parents need your help to save their son before it’s too late.

Kevin is determined to fight the cancer and for all. He wants to go back to school and be with his friends again. Kevin can fight this deadly disease only with your help.
Come we all can contribute from our capacity which means a lot for this family for to see the smile of this little boy..Drop by drop an ocean is filled.
