Help us save Vishaal Karthik who is battling Blood Cancer

I am Prathiksha, raising fund for my classmate Vishaal Karthik (Age 16 - 12th grade). He is doing 12th grade in Mahatma Montessori Matriculation school, Madurai.

Vishaal Karthik is 16 years old. He is suffering from MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) a type of Blood Cancer. MDS are conditions that can occur when the blood forming cells in the bone marrow become abnormal. This leads to low number of one or more types of blood cells.

His condition is critical. The treatment for this condition is Bone Marrow transplant and he is admitted in Meenakshi Mission Hospital, Madurai. And the treatment costs around 40 Lakhs.

His father is an Auto Driver and can barely bear the education and daily expenses of the family. Vishaal has an impeccable academic record. He is the topper in 11th grade. For parents, having a child diagnosed with cancer is a devastating experience. In addition to that having no means to provide for his treatment is a big emotional hit.

The boy's health condition is very bad, we are searching for a matching bone marrow donor and the doctors have started chemotheraphy from 21/12/2018. His blood cell count is less than 4000. In the past one month he is injected with fresh blood platelets. Because the bone marrow cells are not able to multiply and grow and produce blood.  Your contributions bring him a step closer to Life. He needs all the help he can get in the world, let us all help him get through this difficult journey.

Please be kind enough to donate as much as you can. Your donation will not only save the boy, it will help save the entire family.

Dear all,

We were looking for a matching donor for bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately we did not get a match and Vishal's mother was only 50 percent match. So the doctors advised not to proceed with bone marrow transplant surgery, as it may be life threatening

So now he is referred to CMC, Vellore. They have suggested an alternative treatment now. I have attached the statement from the doctors at CMC. Please continue to support Vishaal's treatment.

Thank you all for your contribution. God bless you all.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your support.

Vishaal is admitted in Vellore as of now. He will be receiving injections that cost Rs. 15,00,000. If his body responds well to the injections, then it would be very good. If it doesn't, then he will have to undergo bone marrow transplant.

Do keep sharing the campaign!

Thank you all.

Shakthi
