I am Navnath, until few months ago, I was living a happy satisfied life with my wife and my new-born daughter. I come from a rural farming family in small Village of Pune District of Maharashtra. I had completed my education in Mumbai, while my parents worked as vegetable vendors in Mumbai.
I studied, Applied Arts from L.S. Raheja School of Art and worked as Art Director in renowned advertising agencies like Inter Publicity, Triton Communication, FCB Ulka etc.
Why am I fundraising?
Few months ago, I was diagnosed with a rare medical condition named “Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH)”. It’s a rare disease where Haemoglobin, RBCs, WBCs and platelets start to decrease. (You can read about it on Wikipedia, it’s quite horrific.) It has affected my immune system and I can’t go to work anymore.
I am currently receiving treatment Empire Centre Hospital, Mumbai and Sahyadri Hospital, Pune. The only cure for my condition is Stem Cell Transplant.
Unfortunately enough I could not find stem cell match within my family or relatives and need to look for donor internationally increasing medical expenses to about Rs. 80,00,000/- i.e. Eighty Lakh Rupees( or about $120,000/-)
I would like to request my brothers and sisters across the world, to come forward and help me defeat this decease, and get my life back with my family, my daughter and my friends.
Your small help can save my life, and that of my family’s hope for better and brighter future.
