    This fundraiser will benefit

    Jayasimha Kulkarni

    from Bengaluru

My name is Jay and I work for a private company in Bengaluru and my wife is a home maker. 
As you all know earlier this year, both my kids (daughter and son) were hospitalized for their treatments.
With all your blessings and tremendous support my daughter recovered well after kidney transplant and she is doing fine and going to school with lot of enthusiasm.
However, My son was undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia since Oct'2017. He was progressing well until Dec'18 and unfortunately he had relapse and as per doctors we had to abandon the maintenance therapy and was shifted to UK R3 protocol (aggressive chemo) was initiated and after couple of weeks he had severe infection due to chemo and was shifted to ICU for 2 weeks and since then his treatment continued and he completed all of the chemo and was referred for brain and spine radiation.

He completed the radiation therapy as his counts was very low (as expected) doctors waited to initiate maintenance therapy and unfortunately after a week the disease was relapsed  and the doctors at HCG suggested nothing can be done.

However, I was referred to Narayana Majumdar health center (Dr. Sharat Damodar), I spoke to him and he analyzed all the reports and suggested to treat him with Salvage chemotherapy along with BMT, which is the only option to save my son as it is very aggressive cancer which has occurred twice in 8 months.

Presently, my son is admitted in Narayana health for 1 month for chemo therapy and after that he would be in remission for 1 month and then he would undergo to BMT. However, every step in the treatment has its complications and also there shouldn't be any relapse while he is on remission, If so, again he would undergo chemo for 6-8 months and then he would undergo BMT.

Also, this is the last chance for him to recover, as he has taken enough chemo for the past 2 years and body will not sustain with heavy chemo after this.

I need all of your support to help me in this difficult situation.
