    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Madurai, Tamil Nadu

Why am I raising this fund?

My son Yuvadarshan was two years old when he used to frequently suffer from fever. We did several medical examinations and eventually found that he had a low Platelet count (23000 which was way below normal level).

He was admitted in hospital (Meenakshi mission hospital, Madurai) several times for multiple treatments. Even, he had to take leave from his schooling now and then because of his bad health conditions. He had to take atleast two months leave every year. Once, he even had to miss a whole academic year (2015-2016) and was admitted in ICU then.

Now, he is eight years old and his Platelet count is found to be still below normal. Also, we have found that his White blood cells decreased below normal
level now (4000). Hence, doctors advised us to take even more medical tests to diagnose the disorder more precisely.

After all those medical tests, we were told that our child was suffering from "Dyskeratosis Congenita Type IV" and that "Bone Marrow Transplantation" is the only curative option to treat this disorder.

As per the doctor's advise, my son needs to stay in isolation and take regular check-ups for the next few months.

In order to donate for the transplantation procedure, two weeks ago, my wife and I gave our blood samples to find whether ours have any match with our son's. But unfortunately, the match was not sufficient (50% match).

Now, we are in the search of a suitable donor from outside to do 'un-related' Bone Marrow Transplantation.

Estimate for the treatment:
Donor match identification and getting the samples from outside - Rs. 10 lakhs
Transplantation procedure expenses- Rs. 20 lakhs
Total- Rs. 30 lakhs

Unfortunately, I am not in a position to bear the expenses of this medical process. As we are from a middle class family and I am the only one who is earning and supporting a group of members in my family, I am not able to arrange the cash needed for his treatment.

I kindly make a request from charitable donors through this campaign to donate as much as they wish.

Please do the needful and save my son's life.

Thanks a lot for your support!
