Help 4-year-old Rokeswaran fight cancer for the second time

Rokeswaran, a 4-year-old child, hailing from a poor family from a village near Chennai, was diagnosed to have B-Acute Lymphoblastic leukaemia, which is a  type of blood cancer in 2012. Rokeswaran was brought to Sri Ramachandra Medical College in Chennai for treatment. Chemotherapy was initiated and despite many hurdles, Rokeswaran completed his total treatment of 3 years in 2015.

Rokeswaran went home happily after successfully defeating his dreaded disease. Things were going smoothly when he suddenly developed fever and red spots in his body 1 year after completing treatment. Investigations were done and the family and doctors were shocked to know that the disease (B-ALL) has come back. 

Parents were motivated to start further treatment despite the very aggressive nature of the disease. The only curative treatment available at this stage is Bone Marrow Transplantation. Since Rokeswaran’s sister is only 3 months old, she is too young to donate stem cells.

The next best option is to go ahead with a Bone Marrow Transplant which is scheduled to take place in the next 3-4 weeks once a suitable donor is shortlisted.

The parents are unable to meet the financial cost towards further treatment and are willing to do whatever it takes to save their son. Since this disease is life-threatening the surgery needs to be done urgently.
How Can You Help
Rokeswaran’s father works as a driver and earns Rs 12,000 per month. He has already borrowed a heavy sum of Rs 10 lakhs form his friends. Bone marrow transplant would require Rs 25 lakhs which is beyond his limits. The condition is such that even to support his wife and 2 kids, he has to borrow from others. Rokeswaran is very critical that he needs an immediate transplant. Only your funds can save his life.

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update on Rokeswaran.

Rokeswaran needs to have high dose chemotherapy to reduce his disease burden to enable him for BMT and has been admitted for the same.

His battle has been difficult and everyone is working harder to support the family.
