5 year old Sidamma was to join school but just before the admission process, she fell sick. She started to become very tired and complained of burning pain in her eyes, stomach and feet. Her parents took her to the local hospital in the district, hwoever, the doctor was unable to identify what troubled Sidamma. It was later identified as Griscelli's Syndrome - a rare, immunodeficiency illness that needed immediate treatment to save her life.

A Rare Disease - Griscelli's Syndrome
Her father Sanekappa did his best and took her to several doctor, but no one could diagnose the problem with Sidamma's health. He was shattered.

Finally a doctor he consulted immediately saw that this was a rare disease and that the girl needed expert opinion. He referred them to Narayana Hrudayalaya, Bangalore. Sidamma was diagnosed with Griscelli's Syndrome. It is a rare, newly discovered immunodeficiency illness. Children will this disease usually do not survive their childhood unless they receive a bone-marrow transplant. For Sidamma, time is running out.

Fortunately, for Sidamma, her little sister is a 100% match and will be donating stem cells to Sidamma. But the family needs Rs 12 lakhs for the procedure. It is a sum that will be impossible for Sanekappa to raise. The family needs your help to raise funds for the little girl's Bone Marrow treatment.
