Help Deepak fight Cancer

One of my close friends Deepak Singh who is also my colleague at work is suffering from Blood Cancer. He has used up all his savings in the current treatment and is advised to do bone marrow transplant in April. I need help from everyone of you who is reading this to gather funds of Rs.20,00,000 which would help him undergo the advised treatment. Alone it would be a huge burden for him but if we all stand by him he would be able to fight the cancer and the condition that he is facing, request all to be generous and help out!!

Dear Supporters,

Posting an update after a long time but Deepak was under treatment and observation. As per the latest reports his cancer has relapsed. Deepak is currently admitted to Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Hospital and undergoing another high dose of chemotherapy (CYTOSAR) which is for about a week followed by 2 weeks of observation.

This would be followed up with BMT (Bone Marrow Transplant) immediately. Since BMT donor is not found hence Doctors would be following the HAPLO Protocol and will perform the transplant with his son who is 2 years and 3 months old. Total cost would be around 25 lakhs. In view of the current situation, we would be withdrawing all the available funds and handing it over to Deepak.

Thanks for your support.

Dear Supporters,

Deepak is still consulting various doctors and evaluation is still in progress. His current positive reports have given us some liberty in terms of time to do the investigations and further consultations. Will post more update soon. Search for a suitable matched unrelated donor is still on.

Thank you for giving hope back to Deepak. Praying for his health to improve and finding a donor soon.

Hi All,
Apologies for posting an update after a prolonged time but we were waiting for some reports and investigation. One good news is that as per current report Deepak is stable now the count of blast is quite low, refer uploaded reports for more details. What this means we can wait some more time to find a better Bone Marrow donor for Deepak. Search for donor is ongoing, meanwhile Deepak still has to undergo monthly Chemotherapy for which his approximate expenses are Rs.1,00,000 per month. Hence we are withdrawing an amount of 6,39,289 from Milaap and passing it on to Deepak for his current treatment. The remaining amount on Milaap will be used during BMT. Expenses details are also uploaded for everyone's reference.
The breakup of Chemo expenses is as follows:

Chemo expenses : Rs. 88378.96/-
Additional charges as below :

1.3-4 CBC, LFT & KFT test ( Each costing Rs.1800/ test) = Rs 7200/-
2.Doctors consultation 4 times (700/visit) = Rs 2800/-
3.Daily Medicines ( Heptral 400, Udiliv 600 & Evion 600 = Rs 1500 / Week) = Rs. 6000/-
