Save 15-year-old Jeyaram from a rare blood disorder

Dear All,
I am Shanmugavel residing in Coimbatore, TamilNadu; I work as a florist.

I am writing this seeking help to save my kids Jeyaram & Sridarshini, who are affected with 'Pure Red Cell Aplasia',a blood disorder where they wont be able to reproduce their own red blood cells.

Jeyaram has been diagnosed with this when he was just 4 months in 2001. From then he has been undergoing blood transfusions every month to retain his red blood cells count which would otherwise risk his life.

Doctors identified stem cells transplantation is the only curative for this and the best matching can be made possible with his own sibling. So we went for a second child, girl baby, Sridarshini, but her stem cells didn't match for him. In the 6th month of my little daughter, we found she is also having the same problem "Pure Red Cell Aplasia". From then, blood transfusion is being given for both my kids. Nothing in the world is more painful than seeing both the kids suffer and hospitalized for blood transfusion every month.

After several years, the hospital has arranged for a donor for both my kids and gave us the expenses that would cost for the transplantation for each kid. With my financial status, I have been struggling to meet the monthly hospital expenses for both and running the family.

Dr. Revathy Raj (Apollo Hospitals, Contact #: 044 33151294), one of the best doctors in India for stem cells transplantation, is treating him from his 6 month. She will be doing to the BMT for both Darshini and Jeyaram. 

To meet up the expenses for this transplantation, I would like to request you all to extend your helping hands by donating or forwarding this to your known circles and help my children lead a norma life.

The cost of transplantation would be about 30Lakhs (for Jeyaram) and the split bill is as follows:

Room rent - BMT Room  - 4,00,000
Medications           - 4,00,000
Blood Products        - 4,00,000
Investigations        - 2,00,000
Miscellaneous and
professional charges  - 1,00,000
Stem Cells            - 10,00,000
Life saving drugs     -  5,00,000

The above is the cost split up given by the hospital, I have attached the letter from hospital for your reference. Irrespective of how much you can donate, please send your prayers and well wishes along with the money.

Hello Friends,

With your all your prayers and God's grace, my son is recovering fast and getting back to normal. His platelet counts and hemoglobin count are steadily increasing. Our last visit to Dr.Revathy Raj has been very positive when she told Jayaram is recovering very well. Will keep you all posted.

Thanks for all the support and prayers. Please do keep him in your prayers.

This campaign is open now. Jeyaram is undergoing the transplantation first, so we have re-opened the campaign to raise the necessary funds

Hi All,

We had a meeting with doctor today and transplantation for Jeyaram is put on hold for time being. His iron content is very high which needs to be reduced to less than 300. Considering his health conditions, doctor had advised us to stop the campaign for Jeyaram for transplantation which may get delayed . Jeyaram is given injection daily (as shown in picture above) for reducing his iron content.

However his sister Sridharshini is ready to undergo the treatment once the amount is collected.

I had personally sent a detailed email to everyone of you who donated for jeyaram's treatment. Thanks for all your support !

This campaign will be stopped for time being.
