Help 1 Year Old Baby Prakrith Fight High Risk Blood Cancer

Prakrith 1_year old baby, my son should be walking, start talking and discovering life now. Instead, he is fighting the worst disease that can ever inflict a person, that too for a child. 1_year old baby Prakrith has been diagnosed with High Risk Blood Cancer (B-lineage Lymphoblastic Leukemia, B-All) and has been undergoing intensive treatment at Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital (Chennai) since September 15, 2017.

In order to control the disease, the doctors have prescribed chemotherapy and intensive treatment for 3 years and 5 years of continuous treatment. Chemotherapy sessions have already started and he has been under keen observation from last 15 days. The baby still limps, platelets count has gone down to 8000 (Normal platelets count should be 200000), lost 2kg in 2 days, and complaints of severe diarrhea and fever.
 
My baby looks normal and happy on the outside, but he is slowly succumbing to this disease on the inside, and he can't even tell us. Even the slightest change in his condition needs to be reported to the doctor or his life could be in danger. 
 
Estimated cost for this initial treatment is 10 lakhs and expected to go up to if his condition worsens, and we are finding it very hard to put together the amount, post the previously incurred cost of treatment. I have drawn down almost all my savings and earnings and spent on my mother Meera who is also diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer and she is under the treatment since March 2017 till date in JIPMER Hospital, Puducherry. Please help Prakrith make it through and lead a healthy life with us hereafter. Your contribution will largely help us to save our child's life.

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update on Baby Prakrith.
Prakrith has to undergo nine cycles of chemotherapy and has completed once chemotherapy session.He has to visit the hospital for his weekly checkups thrice a week and take injections.

His Bone Marrow aspiration for MRD was done successfully. The result was favorable and he is responding to the treatment.

For further chemotherapy, a surgery was done and the Chemoport was inserted above his right chest. As his blood counts are very low and he is very young, it is difficult to find veins for providing chemotherapy. To overcome this, the Chemoport is inserted. The Chemoport helps in providing injections and medicines for the baby.

After this operation and as a side effect of chemotherapy, he suffered loose stools, high fever, vomiting and his hemoglobin counts dropped. For this, he underwent blood transfusions to normalize the hemoglobin level.

The second set of chemotherapy has started and the side effects are very high. As of now, they are treating him for the side effects and once they come down, the chemotherapy will be continued again.

Once his WBC count is stable, he has to undergo injections thrice a month in his spinal cord, injections on his thigh and fluid medications too.

Thanks for your support and Please keep him in your prayers for his recovery.

Regards,
Mathangi Kalyanaraman
