Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your overwhelming love and support. This has been a very emotional time for me, seeing my grandson go through such pain. However, it gives me immense pleasure to inform you all, that my Gopi is doing very well now.

He is on the road to recovery. His weight and his height are exactly what they should be at this stage. He is currently on medication which will continue for about three more years.

I take him for blood transfusion once in three months now. Initially, there were some side effects like, his legs would go red, but now, even that has cured. He's very active all day, studies well, meets his friends and more importantly, my baby is happy.

Thank you all once again. I'll forever be grateful to you all for you gave Gopi a new life and I have someone to call my own.

Dear Supporters,

" I just do not have words to thank all of you, I could not have been with my grandson if not for all your support. Your blessings have helped Gopi recover faster.",  Elavarasi, Gopinath's grandmother.

Gopinath is doing good now. He is a naughty kid from the third grade. He goes to school and is doing good academically. He likes playing around and doing mischievous things.

As per the doctor's suggestion, he has to sit alone in class as a precautionary measure to reduce the chance of getting infections. He has to visit the hospital once a month for follow ups. He just goes there, greets everyone and comes back.

"I want him to study hard and help everyone as much as possible. Every morning before going to school, he prays to God and with Gods name, he thanks all his guardian angels, the supporters who showered so much love and blessings on him.", Elavarasi, Gopinath's grandmother.

Thank you once again.

Dear Supporters,

This is Haritha, a fellow based in Chennai. I recently had a chance to meet gopinath with his grandparents and we have very good news to share with you. Gopi successfully underwent his bone marrow transplant and is now recovering well.

“There is no joy bigger than seeing Gopi eating well and playing” says his grandmother, Elavarasi. He no longer needs blood transfusions and he visits the hospital regularly for check-ups.

The teachers and classmates of Gopi have also been extremely supportive and he is expecting to resume his schooling from the upcoming academic year.

All of this wouldn’t have been possible without your support! Gopi’s grandmother wanted to convey her sincerest gratitude to everyone who contributed and made this possible.

Thank You for the support.
