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.
