    Pravin S

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka


17-year-old Pravin has been suffering from cycles of high temperature and weakness for over two years. His sister, 14-year-old Varsha, also began to show similar symptoms. The family of four, with parents, Shivaraju and Pavithra, come from Ramnagar, Kanakapura. After consulting various doctors across hospitals, the siblings were diagnosed with Fanconi anemia, a rare genetic condition that causes the bone marrow to stop producing all types of blood cells. 

For over a month, the siblings were admitted at NH until Varsha succumbed to it. Now, the devastated parents every shred of hope they have to save their son from the same fate.

Pravin has a very small window of time before his body gives out and begins to bleed. The doctors have suggested bone marrow transplant with the parents as haplo-matched donors as a curative option, if performed at the earliest. Pravin is hanging by a thread, and needs your help to fight the disease that killed his sister.

Shivaraju is a farmer with not much earnings or savings. He is unable to sell the one-acre agricultural land in his possession because of the demonetization drive. The estimated cost of this surgery is Rs. 24,00,000. You are the family's only hope to save at least one of their children.
