Rahul underwent Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) procedure on 9th Dec with his mother as stem cell donor. He was in post BMT nursing care when he developed post transplant infections due to the suppressed immunity and host defences . Rahul bravely fought and courageously endured the tough battle and also showed signs of recovery. However manifestation of multiple infections was detrimental to post transplant recovery.
We would like to sincerely thank you for your support to Rahul and championing his cause at various forums and with your circle of friends and contacts. We are indeed very grateful and express gratitude for your generosity and timely help. Your support was invaluable and critical in offering the best of care for Rahul.
Thank You and Best Regards.
In July 2017, Rahul was diagnosed with a second relapse of ALL and he is now undergoing intensive chemotherapy. Given his age and positive response to the treatment, Rahul has been advised for Haplo-Identical Bone Marrow Treatment (BMT), as a curative option, with his mother being an HLA-match. While this indeed helps bring down the cost of the treatment, however it is expected that the cost of the complete transplantation treatment is around Indian Rupees INR 30 Lakhs (USD $ 45,800 / GBP £ 35,000).
