Why am I fundraising?
Jaantul is all of 8 years old. She has a genetic condition called Hypoplastic Anemia, which means she is not able to generate platelets from her bone marrow. As a result, she has experienced dizziness ever since she was 6 months old, continuous bleeding from mouth. She is a native of Bangladesh, her parents will not be able to afford medical care for longer. She has already done 6 blood transfusions and needs help for chromosomal breakage testing and follow up treatment.
She is now in Bangalore with her dad. His sister, Parul is our household help.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
She need at least ~4 Lakhs to get the treatment started. After scraping some fundings and talking to NGOs, Parul has managed to get ~2 Lakhs. All of the amount raised will be used for medical expenses of Jaantul.
Treatment (Mostly blood transfusions) to keep her going has been done in Narayana Hrudayala in Bangalore. We are also looking at Bangalore Medical College and KIDWAI as economical alternatives.
