Story of Ishwari-
In a village of Changyacha Pada( approximately 100 km from Mumbai), a little girl of age 3 and half years was playing in a lap of grandfather. She was enjoying a day and her grandpa was singing the lullaby, both unaware of destiny. Her mother, Nutan who is the housewife and me, Nitin her father working as a primary teacher in the school were enjoying bonding between my father and daughter. It was a lovely sight. Suddenly, Ishwari started vomiting containing blood and it hit us like a storm. We did not know what to do and were scared. I and my wife were freeze for the moment and could not move at all. It was a horrible situation. However, we managed to get into our senses and started moving. We took her to the nearest hospital and it took us one hour to reach there. There is no other hospital nearby.
After primary stabilization, Ishwari was referred to bigger hospital for further diagnosis as doctors in this hospital found it difficult to diagnose the condition and wanted to give their best treatment. We took her to Wadia Hospital in Mumbai, the only affordable paediatric hospital for the children like Ishwari hailing from poor families like us.
Doctors at Wadia hospital told us that it was not vomiting of blood and blood was coming from her gums. We were relieved at this confirmation but destiny had something else stored for us. Doctors were concerned and they alarmed us. They asked us few questions and carried out some blood tests. Me or my wife did not understand any reports and doctors told us that “your daughter is suffering from very rare autoimmune disorder”. Doctors were worried and we did not know what to do further. He showed empathy and explained further steps to us. They advised us to take Ishwari to further larger hospital for best treatment. They told us that she requires bone marrow transplant and stem cell therapy as a treatment and keep her alive.
Doctors told us that in her disease body fails to develop enough blood cells. It makes her weak and she will bleed at the point of time if her platelet counts fall below a normal level. She needs the blood transfusion which is a temporary treatment to keep her alive. She has to undergo bone marrow transplant. It will cost us Rs. 20 Lakh including bone marrow transplant and hospital charges. We even have to take care of other infections as well, as her immunity is weak. I am the simple primary school teacher and I teach kids of farmers from the nearby villages and my wife is a home maker.
How can you Help us
I and my wife are donating our bone marrow to Ishwari but we need doctors and hospital to do it. If possible, I would have taken all the pain from my baby and give her my life but…
Please help me to save my girl and bring happiness to her life.
