This January, Salomi suddenly fell sick. She had a fever, weakness and vomitting. When she fainted, she was rushed to the hospital and the blood tests revealed something very scary to the family.
Salomi was diagnosed with Acute Aplastic Anaemia – her body has stopped producing blood cells. Her blood cells' count had fallen dangerously low and she needed urgent blood transfusion.
She has a son, Ramesh who has so far, spent all his savings and borrowed money and spent Rs 50,000 on Salomi's treatment which includes all her medicines.
Now, he need Rs 15 lakhs for a bone-marrow transplant that can save his mother's life.
