I am fundraising to help 3 year old Rahul fight leukemia


Rahul Bag had gone back to his hometown. During his regular check up few days ago, it was revealed that his leukemia has relapsed. Doctors are waiting for the bone marrow report to decide on further course of treatment. We are raising funds to support his chemotherapy sessions.


------

My son, Rahul, is 3 years old and has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). I am a farmer, and my family and I hail from West Bengal, but are currently staying in Coimbatore, where I work in a restaurant.

When Rahul started falling ill quite frequently, we got him admitted at CMC Medical College and Hospital in Vellore. He suffered from fever, stomach aches, and leg pain. We conducted bone marrow tests at least 4 times, but the results were inconclusive. He was prescribed some medication. However, he would fall ill again soon after his round of medications were complete. A friend told s to get Rahul checked by Dr. Revathi Raj at Apollo Hospital in Chennai.

Dr. Revathi Raj told us to get another bone marrow test done for our son. To our horror, in June 2015, we found that our son has leukemia. He has undergone a round of chemotherapy, and needs to complete at least 2 more sessions. I have attached the letter from Apollo Hospital below.

I belong to an extremely humble background – my family members belong to the farming community. I work in a restaurant and my wife is a homemaker. We cannot afford the cost of the medical expenses. We now turn to you for your support in saving our beloved son. We have sold our land to fund his medical expenses so far, which has cost us around Rs. 8 lakhs. We are facing financial hardships in providing for the rest of the expenses. We urge you to contribute anything within your means to help save Rahul.

Dear Supporter,

We spoke to Rahul's father and his doctor. Rahul was brought to the hospital few days back for a regular check up. But we received unfortunate news from the doctor. Rahul's leukemia has relapsed. He is undergoing chemotherapy and is recovering slowly. He has to be in supportive care for 3 to 4 days more. Doctors are waiting for the bone marrow report to decide the further course of treatment.

We have transferred Rs 4 lakhs to the hospital for the first session of chemotherapy. The family needs funds for the next cycle of chemotherapy and supportive care. We have increased the target amount to Rs 5 lakhs more to support them. Keep him in your prayers. We will keep you posted in the coming days about his progress.

Thank You!
