My friend Amal, is fighting a rare bone marrow disease - FANCONI ANEMIA due to which he needs an immediate Bone Marrow Transplant. Fanconi Anemia as mentioned above is very rare and occurs in about 1 per 1,30,000 births. Its really disheartening to see our friend trying to fight this life threatening disease.
Amal, a full of life college-goer fainted while playing a match with his friends and when the doctor was consulted he immediately asked his family to join him for further tests and that is when we got this unfortunate news of his ailment. He was admitted at NIMS Hyderabad for treatment. But we had a tough time finding a donor for him as he is the only son and doesn't have a sibling we had to look for unrelated donors elsewhere.
After a lot of struggle we were able to find a donor in Bangalore , we admitted him to Narayana Hrudayalaya, Bommasandra, Bangalore. The doctors say the cost of the treatment, would come upto Rs.23 Lakhs and the other medical expenses could go up to Rs.15 lakhs additionally.
Amal's father works at a small temple and his mother works as a clerk in a small school in Bowenpally, Hyderabad. Their annual income comes up to around Rs.2 lakhs only and hence they are facing acute financial difficulty to fund their son's treatment. Inspite of the hardships they already spent around Rs.10 Lakhs for his treatment until now.
Amal all of 18 years of age, is a student of Bhavan's Vivekananda College, Hyderabad. Apart from excelling in his studies he also loves to dance and has participated in a whole lot of competitions and won quiet of few of them with his stupendous talent.
A calm going and lovable friend of ours is now fighting for his life and we all want him to spring back on his feet.
Please help Amal fight this battle and emerge healthy to see a smile of his parent's face.
Thank you for all your support.
