Why Am I Fundraising?

Dear All, 

My name is Prakash V and I have been a resident of Bengaluru for the past 25 years. Currently, I am doing everything possible to help my 20-year-old cousin brother who is suffering from Blood Cancer. My cousin Vishal Ballal is a young talented cricketer who has played and performed well in the under 16 and under 19 tournaments conducted by the KSCA. His record shows his talent, and the youngster has plans to play for the Ranji and the country soon. But fate has been cruel to him. 

Unfortunately, he is diagnosed with Blood cancer (AcuteMyeloid Leukemia AML – M3). We have admitted him to the Columbia Asia (referred) hospital in Yeshwantpur. The doctors claim that his treatment would cost us Rs 12 -14 Lakhs. His father work as a driver and his wife is a clerk at a private school and they cannot afford such money for treatment. 

We are helpless but want to save him. I request everyone reading this to kindly help us financially or pass on the message to someone who might be able to help. My cousin is a talented cricketer and we need your help to save him. 

How You Can Help

We are trying to raise money through friends, relatives, and well-wishers, but we are falling short by a long margin. Every single rupee donated to him will help save him.

In this situation, every penny counts and please go ahead and donate whatever you can. It will certainly help us and we will be thankful to you.

Here is the latest update with regard to Vishal's health.

Vishal had been undergoing consolidated treatment since the first week of May 2016. The treatment was supposed to continue till the end of October.

Vishal was doing just fine until early this week when he was diagnosed with fever. Patients recovering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia AML – M3 (Blood Cancer) have to be very cautious for at least 2 years after their initial treatment to avoid further complications.

The fever took a beating on his overall health and he was admitted to the hospital after he became unconscious.

The doctors put him on ventilator and Tuesday evening was one of the worst days for him and our family members. The blood culture report indicated that he had AEROMONAS SOBRI, a kind of bacteria in his blood.

Vishal is off the ventilator at the moment, but he will be discharged only after a couple of blood tests. In lay man terms, he will now be treated for the latest complication and after a month's will his consolidated treatment will continue which would be for another two months.

We must say that in addition to the doctor's treament, it is god's grace and all your blessings and well wishes that have helped him fight this battle. But we must say that he has a long way to go. We hope that you continue to pray for him.

Thanks and regards,

Prakash V
