Asnan knows he is not well. When his mother cries, he will console her, telling her that he is fine. He does not like sympathy from others and will try to hide signs of his illness – wearing jeans to cover the patches on his legs and dark glasses when his eyes turn red. He is so mature, you can’t tell that he is only four years old.
He has been diagnosed with Leukemia. Asnan needs a blood stem cell/bone marrow transplant to cure his disease. However, we have not been able to find that life-saving match for him.
Niya is a six-year-old diagnosed with Thalassemia. She has to undergo painful blood transfusions every 20 days. The only permanent cure is a blood stem cell transplant from a healthy donor. Niya can be saved only if we can find her that life-saving match.
Asnan, Niya and several other children are hoping to get back their childhood. They need help. They need donors.
Chances of finding an unrelated blood stem cell donor is 1 in 10,000 to 1 in over a million. We need to find more donors in order to save thousands of children like Asnan & Niya.
It costs DATRI, Rs.2500 to add a donor. We are raising funds to add as many donors as possible. By contributing towards this cause, you are increasing the chances of giving back their precious childhood.
