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.
