Help Rahul Undergo Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Treatment

Update:
It is with deep regret that we inform you the passing away of Rahul on Tuesday, 26th Dec 2017 at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore.  

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.

-- Original Post --
Rahul, studying to become an engineer, was first diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) in Jan 2014 when he was just 16-years old.  He underwent an 8-month chemotherapy cycle (as per BFM-ALL-90 protocol) and was on Maintenance chemotherapy until Aug 2016.

In Sept 2016, he had a relapse of ALL and was re-inducted into chemotherapy regimen with BFM-REZ-2002 protocol which completed in June 2017.

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).

We request your wishes and generous contributions to help Rahul's cause. Also, we request your support in sharing this campaign with your family and friends to help achieve the goal.

Thanking you for your blessings & support.

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update on Rahul.

Rahul underwent a bone marrow test couple of days back to assess the process of the treatment.  The report has been encouraging and now the doctors have made a call to initiate Bone Marrow Transplant for Rahul with his mother being the donor.  A series of tests were initiated today in preparation for the impending Bone Marrow Transplant procedure, it is likely the procedure will performed in next 3-4 days, possibly on Sunday.

Thanks and appreciate all the donors for the support and generous help.  Will keep you posted on the progress of BMT treatment.
