Help Amar kick Multiple Myeloma to the curb!

Hello , this is for my sweet brother Amar who was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma , a painful blood cancer formed by malignant plasma cells - type of white blood cell in the bone marrow.

This was very unexpected, and we all in our family were shocked and couldn’t believe as we had no family history of any kind of cancer. We all were totally unprepared for emotional, mental and financial costs that would ensue. Amar is a bright and very intelligent person. Whoever meets him,  he puts a smile on their face. He has been working as a technical architect at Infosys, a well renowned software company based in Bangalore. He is the most caring and gentle person you will ever meet.

He was diagnosed in early November of 2016 in India, when he complained of tremendous painful ache in the bones especially his backbone. He could not walk , turn or sit up. We found out after tests that he had multiple lesions, fractures and compacting bones.

He was admitted to the hospital where his treatment started which included multiple tests almost everyday, hospital/staff fees, specialists/doctor’s fees, continuous stay in hospital, radiation therapy and ongoing chemotherapy.

He will also undergo an expensive, long and painful autologous stem cell transplant procedure soon, from PGI, Chandigarh.

But he has recently developed an infection. For many days he had constant high fever and high kidney creatinine (Cr) level. So doctors have stopped chemotherapy and delayed the stem cell transplant until we can control his fever and Cr level.

He has shown tremendous courage and spirit in this incredibly tough time for him. But this battle is still far from over. This is a very tough time for the family and every member is tirelessly contributing towards Amar's fast recovery. Amar's parent's are retired and Amar is on loss of pay Since December and can't bear the financial burden alone.

So, far, the treatment cost involved to stabilize his condition, battle the pain from his injuries, start treatment for his disease and to counter the side effects, has been huge. The entire insurance cover and almost all of family's savings have got exhausted.
Coming up for him are his remaining chemo sessions followed by autologous stem cell transplant . Estimated immediate costs are attached as annexures.
Hence, we need your support in this desperate hour.  Pls help Amar in his ongoing battle to beat this cancer.

I will continuously keep posting updates of his health and progress of  his treatment.

 He needs tremendous support, prayers and blessings of all his loved ones, and together we will make him win this battle!

Hello Everyone,

 Amar's kidney biopsy was done on 12th Apr. Biopsy report showed myeloma in Kidneys along with moderate Acute Tubular Necrosis. In the meantime, 5th cycle of  Chemotherapy has been completed and post that Multiple myeloma panel test was done which basically reveals the existence of myeloma in blood. Report revealed positive result that myeloma has gone from the blood but exists in kidneys as per kidney biopsy report. Now Doctor has started another cycle of strong chemotherapy (twice a week) for 2 weeks in order to treat kidney myeloma. Current creatinine is hovering around 5 (normal range being 0.6-1.1) and post this cycle they will re-evaluate the whole situation.
We will keep you posted on further treatment plan.

Please keep him in your prayers.

Thanks and Regards.
