Help Jay Save His Children

My name is Jayasimha Kulkarni. I work for a private company in Bengaluru and my wife is a home maker. We are blessed with two kids who are our source of happiness.

My eleven-year-old daughter, Shreya Kulkarni was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (failure of both her kidneys) in 2015 and its been four years she was on dialysis (Peritoneal Dialysis) and the left kidney had to removed due to an infection in Apr'18 and post that she is undergoing Hemo dialysis every second day while awaiting a suitable donor for Kidney transplant.

And this was only the beginning of our nightmare. Just as she gradually started recovering, my son got admitted in the hospital for a minor medical problem in December.
Unfortunately, My Son Vijayasimha nine-year-old son, Vijayasimha was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (Blood cancer) in 2017 and since then he has been undergoing chemo for 14 months, unfortunately the doctors diagnosed and have come to the conclusion that this deadly disease has returned (relapse).

The only treatment for Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia relapse is to administer a very aggressive course of Chemo again, post the Chemo therapy, he would undergo brain radiation and post that, they would re-run all the tests (MRI, BMT, MRD) and the tests results being negative for leukaemia, the last life saving course for him will be Bone Marrow Transplant (Stem Cell transplant).


Both the treatments have been really expensive and I have managed to take the strain of the extreme expenses till today, but now the cost of the treatment for my son is estimated to exceed 30 Lakhs including the stem cell transplant which unfortunately is not covered under the health insurance scheme.

For the past 4 years, I have exhausted my savings and with utmost pain in my heart, I am seeking help to see my kids are back to their routine life.

Then doctor's told us about medical crowdfunding. We saw how well other fundraisers on the website were doing and hope, like never before, filled us. Now we cling onto this hope that the only way left to save our kids is you.

Every day, I watch helplessly as my son and daughter struggle for life. Being kids who cannot understand the extent of the diseases they battle, they are upset and confused with the symptoms. We now have no choice but to turn to you with the heavy request of saving both our kids life.

Here is the update on the campaign you contributed !
Dear All, Thank you for your tremendous support.

Jay's son was discharged yesterday and back home after a difficult phase of 100 days. During these 100 days, he was in ICU for 15 days and was on ventilator for 8 days. He fought all the odds and is now doing better. I really want to THANK all of you for your tremendous support which was undoubtedly the most toughest and darkest days of my life.

My son need to continue the medication / treatment for the next  3 months and need to visit hospital weekly twice. His blood counts and platelets need to improve and until then he would undergo blood / platelet transfusions.

Presently, he is on immune suppressive drugs and other supportive antibiotics to accept the new stem cells and over a period of time the drugs will be reduced and the new stem cells need to be accepted within that time frame.

I shall keep you all posted again on the progress.

I wish you all a very happy new year !
