This is about the child of Satheesh Kumar and Aleyamma Thomas who are residing in UAE for past 10 years
This Keralite family suffered a devastating shock when their younger son Yadhav Satheesh was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) in February 2017. ALL is a type of blood cancer in which bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes. After completing aggressive rounds of chemotherapy for around eight months in 2017, Yadav entered maintenance therapy for his cancer, and his parents were thrilled with the outcome.
Unfortunately on June 26, to the utter dismay of his parents, the three year old’s cancer relapsed. According to the team of doctors working on Yadav’s case given that his cancer relapsed at such an early stage, the family’s only option is a bone marrow transplant and follow up treatment Doctors and Yadav’s parents consider sending Yadav’s sister Theertha’s bone marrow samples to test if she can be his donor.
If transplant doesnt work, doctors will need to consider targeted therapy and other aggressive treatments.
Since bone marrow transplant is not readily available in UAE, doctors and family members have suggested the family to do the surgery at Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospital in Bangalore, India.
The family needs financial support for the bone marrow transplant from kind and generous hearts.
