Save my son from Leukemia

My son, Osama Hasan, needs a Bone Marrow Transplant to complete his treatment for Leukemia (blood cancer).  Osama was first diagnosed with Leukemia (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia-ALL) in 2006 at age 6.  He was treated with chemotherapy at the Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) in Kolkata and was cured.  Sadly, in March of this year he had a relapse of the Leukemia. Since April he is being treated at the Tata Medical Center in Kolkata and has received 4 sessions of chemotherapy.  The doctors now say they have no option left other than to go for a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).  His younger brother will be the donor and he is a 100% match.

I have paid for my son’s medical expenses so far from personal and family funds. However, the cost of the Bone Marrow Transplant is very high, about Rupees 28 Lakhs (US $38,000), and needs to be arranged in a short time.

A breakdown of the expenses for Osama’s Bone Marrow Transplant is as follows:
BMT Hospitalization                                                           =   Rs. 550,000
Medication                                                                           =   Rs. 750,000
Blood and Components/Nutrition/Disposables            =   Rs. 750,000
Lab Investigations & Transplant Fees                              =   Rs. 400,000
Other Hospital Costs                                                          =   Rs. 350,000
                                                                   Total                   =Rs. 2,800,000

To start the BMT treatment, I need to provide at least Rupees 20 Lakhs (US $27,000) by early September 2020.  I am unable to manage this amount from personal and family funds and hence reaching out for help through this campaign.

Osama is a good student and a caring person.  His goal after high school is to study Business Administration.  He completed his Class 12 studies and was writing his Board Exams in March but could not take the last exam due to his illness.
   
Please donate and share the link with your family and friends to raise this fund and help me save my son.  He is just 20 years old and needs this treatment to survive and live his life.
Thank you in advance and I highly appreciate any help you can provide.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your love and support

My younger son (the donor) is being prepared for the extraction of the cells. There was a delay in his test reports and they have now been received. He has completed a COVID-19 test and started receiving Growth Factor injections. These injections will continue for three more days and then he will be admitted to the hospital in the BMT ward to begin the extraction.

Once they have done the extraction from the donor and the cells are stored in cryogenic form, my older son (the patient and recipient) will be admitted to the BMT ward to begin the transplant process. Till then he is in waiting and being given medication to keep his immunity strong.

My older son will also have a COVID-19 test on the 21st or 22nd of September. After getting his COVID-19 test results, he will be admitted for the BMT process on the 24th or 26th of September.

Please pray for my son's treatment and that all the test results come in good so that there is no more delay.

Thank you.

Thank you for your generosity and prayers for my son.  I am providing an update on the preparations for his Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).

The pre-BMT work has started on my younger son, who is the donor.  We have an appointment with the BMT Team next Wednesday, 2nd September to finalize the start date of the BMT process.  Once they have done the extraction from the donor and storage is done in cryogenic form, my older son (the patient) will be admitted for the BMT process.

The funds of $16,459.3 and ₹15,87,298.78 are being withdrawn into my account, Afroz Hasan, and will be utilized for my son's treatment costs.

I will provide further updates as the date is finalized and the treatment starts.  Again, I want to thank you sincerely for your support and please continue to remember my son in your prayers.
