Saswata Basu is still fighting Crohn's Disease....keep him helping!!!

Hi! Thanks for checking out my campaign page. I am helping best friend and life mate, Saswata Basu, who has been recently diagnosed with a severe chronic ailment called Crohn's Disease, to raise funds for his treatment. Saswata popularly known as BASU is an alumnus of NIT Trichy (a reputed engineering school in India) who left a lucrative engineering career in IT and dedicated his life to endeavour with the kids to make their learning effortless, meaningful and fun filled. He is a teacher and an education technologist who is currently engaged in developing new pedagogical methods in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education complying with 21st Century education for school kids.

Crohn's Disease is a debilitating, chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the digestive tract causing a number of symptoms such as abdominal pain, ulcers, blood diarrhoea, weight loss, anemia and fatigue, etc. Patients with overt disease are at a significantly higher risk for GI tract cancers, necessitating regular screening for diagnosis. The disease has no cure, immunosuppressant are used to slow the progression of the disease. Surgery may be needed if medications are not effective. For a patient with Crohn's disease, life is extremely regimented, requiring constant vigil and surveillance.
As of now his restricted movement is preventing him for taking a regular job and I too, have to remain unengaged to ensure his day to day care including managing his special diet and timely medicines. He is very passionate about his work and dying to get back among his kids. Kindly contribute to help the ever smiling Basu and let's stand up for him who always selflessly worked for the betterment of the education system for the next generation learners.

The Crohn's diagnosis and the subsequent treatment are putting a lot of stress on his health and strain on the finances to the point that they have their exhausted their savings. Please help with whatever amount possible to enable Saswata to continue his treatment and get back to as normal a life as possible.

Currently the medications like mesalamine, vit b12, vit D etc are continuing as usual.....I am also taking calcium, potassium supplements. Joint pain and fatigue are two greatest challenges at the moment....morning starts with body pain and a nagging feeling of sickness. The other symptoms/side effects of drugs are sleep disorder, brain fogging and memory problems( they have developed lately)...overall it is more or less everyday struggle to cope with these issues with the help of some physical activities/yoga along with usual strict diet plan.Keeping finger crossed for every next day and hoping situation does not worsen. Thanks for all of your love, care and support....👍👍👍

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support. This summer a few nagging symptoms like bloating, abdominal pain and muscle spasms are reoccurring. The doctors suggest that they are due to mal-absorption of nutrients and some bacterial activities in the small intestine. Vitamin D supplement had been helpful and currently helping me to fight joint pains.

Thanks again for your support!! Will keep you posted.
