I am Dimple, an 8-month old toddler from Hyderabad. My parents were extremely delightful when I was born, I was like an angel born in their family. While I should be teething and doing other things toddlers do, I was unfortunately diagnosed with SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency), a fatal disease commonly found in newborn babies, three months back.
What is SCID?
Severe combined immune deficiency is a very rare genetic disease where my immunity system does not function like that of a normal human being. This makes me prone to get affected by any virus or bacteria to fall severely ill. Its commonly found in infants.
About my parents
My papa, Mr. Vishwanath hard working employee of a company in Hyderabad, has admitted me into a good hospital to receive the best treatment and services.
My papa, Mr. Vishwanath and mother, Mrs. Pushpa have been trying to make ends meet to fund my treatment costs that are close to INR 30 LACS.
The only cure for this disease is Bone Marrow transplantation, which is very costly, about 25-30 lakhs. We are a lower middle class family that cannot afford this treatment.
Why I want to live longer?
I have only lived for 8 months and hope to live more. I wish to go to kindergarten in the future for which, I have to be cured of this rare and fatal disease.
