    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

This is with regarding fund request for my wife (Manjula 29/Female) who is currently suffering from “Severe Aplastic Anaemia”. We are almost transfused so many Packed cells, Random donor platelets and Single donor platelets also. But there is no much improvements because of the Bone marrow is not functioning well.
                                She is in critical stage of “Aplastic Anaemia” and undergoing treatment at “Center for Blood Disorder” hospital Chennai under Mr. DR. Varadarajan.
                                After confirming her pregnancy only we came to know there is a problem with her Bone marrow functions. At middle of seventh month we did the Bone marrow aspiration and Biopsy as well in “Christian Medical College” at Vellore. But the doctors are not able to identify what was the problem. Because there is an inadequate cells due to pregnancy.
So the Haematologist doctors said, we could not provide any treatment while at pregnancy. It will affect your baby’s life, because the treatment will be including of high level dosage. Then they are suggested us to keep transfuse the blood and platelets till the time of delivery whenever it’s required. And also this is our precious baby because after three years of our marriage life, she got pregnant. So we also preferred the treatment method of Blood transfusion only.
Almost we have transfused so many units of blood to save her and her baby too. While the time of delivery, she was with only 6000 platelets and 8.2 HB. And finally she has successfully delivered the baby (on November 3rd 2017) safely with the help of God grace, friends and relative prayers, best gynaecologist and Anaesthesia doctors treatments at 10th month starting by C - section. We were not able to diagnose the disease till the delivery.
                                After 45 days of delivery again we did the bone marrow aspiration and biopsy test. Then only we are able to diagnose she has suffered from severe aplastic anaemia. She has transfused around 30 units of packed cells and Platelets within this four months after delivery. On 3th of March 2018 she has gum bleeding at morning so we went and checked the blood test. The HB was 6.2 and Platelets are 5000 only. So we transfused 4 units of RDP’s and 2 units of PC. We went back to home and Sunday (4th March 2018) evening to home. But again she has some bleeding from gum on 5th March 2018, so we went to Haematologist doctors, they did blood test and her platelets counts are 3000 thousands only.
                                Then we have admitted her immediately in the hospital and we transfused 8 units of RDP’s but only 1000 has increased on platelets count. Then doctors are starting to give the oral treatments like “Elthromopag 50 mg tablets etc. The cost of Elthromopag 50 mg tablets is RS 2000/- per tablet. They are provided various tablets to increase the platelets count. The cost around RS 10,000/- per day. After two days of taken the Elthromopag 50 mg tablets again the platelets count are increased to 5000 from 4000. But doctor said this is not a permanent solution.
Actually Idle treatment for this Aplastic Anaemia is, “Stem cell transplant” which is cost around RS 23 to 25 lakhs which is very difficult for us to afford. Already we have spent more than 5 lakhs for her treatment from my pocket and borrowed money from so many friends and for interest too. So I request you to help us to save my wife and my 4 month old son mom. Because he needs his mom till his life time as well as for me too. So In this situation this is highly impossible for us to arrange this much of amount without support from you all.
It is getting very difficult to afford the treatment cost as my family does not have much capacity to bear the treatment cost. We belong to average family and the overall family earning is also very less which might now impact her treatment due to lack of monetary support.
I have attached some documents for your reference along with doctor letters. I request you to please help us for crowd funding so we can support for my wife treatment.
Thanking you,
Yours Truly,
Kannan Periyasamy
