We have received unfortunate news of Ridhi passing away this morning at around 4 am. Our hearts go out to the little one who fought the deadly disease. May her soul rest in peace and her parents find solace at this difficult time.
We yet to speak to Ridhi’s parents. Once we get a chance to speak to her parents, we will keep you updated on how the remaining funds will be utilized. We thank each and every one of you for your generous contributions and prayers.
Due to sudden and unexpected hospitalization fundraising target amount has been now bit increased to cover medical costs, As Ridhi has multiple severe complex health needs, Although it will not cover the entire bills- Till date, we have spent over INR 14 MILLIONS on her treatment. I would like to mention that the money raised is only for Ridhi's treatment, none of the fund raised will be spent on anything else.
Also not posting any of her pics this week because she looks a bit puffy and tired. Whole family is remaining extremely positive that with her strong sprit along with your help and support and ofcourse prayers that she WILL beat this and has been touched by kindness, generosity and love of so many people - many of them even we have not had the opportunely to meet or know and it is truly humbling to see.
I appreciate any contribution to the cause for a child who deserve her life back and thank you for all your prayers and assistance in time of need.
After surviving through several chemotherapy for over the year and BMT Ridhi has had Acute life-threatening GVHD, for which she is being treated with costly antibiotics and antithrombotic. She is getting fever again and again, As she always been so active even after chemotherapy then it is hard difficult to see her in this condition..The most challenging part of having an ill child who can't speak yet is that they cannot tell you what is wrong, so you don't know if they are in pain, scared, frustrated, tired, or something else all together.
Stem Cells Transplants comes with lot of stress and recovery of the immune system may take up to a year. The transplant that could help Ridhi to beat this horrible monster called cancer, has left her battling many more life threatening situation - GVHD (graft-versus-host disease- is a serious complication that can occur after a stem cell or bone marrow transplant in which the newly transplanted donor cells attack the transplant recipient's body). Ridhi has developed Grade-3 GVHD of the skin (Rashes on body), gastrointestinal tracts (life-threatening diarrhea), lungs (breathing difficulties- for almost a week), and very high liver enzymes.
We still have to find a way to help with the huge financial burden, So again i request all to please assist us as much as you can to spread the word about Ridhi's struggle. Each and every one of you have played a key role and we would like to see a continued support from all of you.
I want to thank every single person including her healthcare staff that has been involved in her battle against Cancer. We are humbled to see all of you come together as a strong community and your assistance is endlessly appreciated!!
If prayers are going to start working we all need them now?! please god!!
Ridhi, Age 2 years, is detected of acute myeloid leukemia, a form of the life-threatening blood cancer, in July'14. She has had bone marrow transplant done in Feb'15. But after early relapse of her cancer she needs immidiate transplant again to survive from her illness, which will cost again around 20 lakhs, so we need a bit urgent help to support her treatment
About The Cause:
Ridhi received first chemotherapy for a month at Gangaram hospital (Registration No. 1499185), New Delhi, but we felt she wasn't getting the treatment and care she deserved. Thats when a friend recommended we look into the further Cancer Treatment at Dharamshila Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (Registration No. 78710) New Delhi.
During Second chemotherapy for another month, She developed the severe side effects including bleeding into the central nervous system (CNS) also called brain hemorrhage. With full of ups and downsalmost 1 year of treatment she had an early relapse from her transplant and her leukemia is back. Simply the Cancer is back and it is very aggressive. It can’t only be cure with only chemotherapy and cells infusion and she has to undergo with transplant again.
But, Now again we are experiencing financial difficulties, we have to arrange more than 20 Lacs for Bone marrow transplantation following other cells therapies and treatments. We are not sure how it will be arranged but we do not have any other choice to even think.
All support to us, no matter how small... in achieving this target would be hugely appreciated.
So please dig deep, be generous and donate- thank you!!
