Thanvik is barely 8-month-old and has already been admitted to the hospital multiple times since his birth, with recurrent fever, skin and blood infections adding health woes to this tiny soul.
He was suspected to have a defect in his immune system, and on detailed evaluation, he has been diagnosed to have Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome (WAS), which is a severe defect in his immune system. WAS is an extremely rare and fatal disease, which if untreated, causes children to succumb to severe infections.
The only curative treatment available for WAS is a Bone Marrow Transplant. Thanvik’s older brother was tested for HLA and fortunately, he has matched for donating stem cells for his younger brother's treatment.
This transplant needs to be done urgently in order to prevent Thanvik from succumbing to further infections.
His parents are ready to do anything to save their baby but unfortunately, cannot afford the cost of a Bone Marrow Transplant.
How can you help?
Thanvik is barely 8-month-old and has a whole life to celebrate. Don't let this disease take away this opportunity. Funds raised through this fundraiser will go towards the treatment of this little angel.
