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.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for your love and support. This  couldn't have been possible without you.

It gives me immense pleasure in informing you all that Vishal is doing very well now. He has also started playing cricket and recently flew to Sri Lanka to play a match.  He is currently on observation, meaning, his health is being observed closely. He gets a blood test done every three months. The doctors have told us that he needs to be monitored for any irregularities for five years post his treatment.

Two and a half years have already passed and there haven't been any alarming episodes yet. We are all hoping the next two and a half years to also go smoothly because if he has a relapse, then he will have to undergo a bone marrow transplant.

Thank you everyone once again! We're forever indebted to you.
