Help Santhosh Get Treatment For His Severe Blood Disorder

Santhosh was the first person to read his cancer report. He was scared that he will die soon but he was more concerned that his parents could not handle it.

Santhosh used to stay in a hostel, 500 km away from his family. During vacations in June 2017 when he went home to visit his parents, he complained of having mild neck pain. They took him to a local hospital where he was prescribed some painkillers. The pain was persistent so he sought another doctor. His uncle brought him to Bangalore where Santhosh was diagnosed with cancer.

For every chemotherapy treatment, Santhosh has to travel 500 km to the hospital from his native and return home on the same day. His family cannot afford to rent a room in Bangalore, and this is causing them more pain.

Santhosh’s father has suffered a huge loss in agriculture due to the scarcity of rain. His savings are exhausted and he is deep in debt. Santhosh's survival strategy is a Bone Marrow Transplant. The tests to find a match has cost them over Rs. 1.5 lakhs. His father has used up all their resources and can, in no way, afford Santhosh’s surgery that is estimated to cost Rs 15 lakhs.

We cannot even imagine the trauma 13-year-old Santhosh is going through having to fight the world's worst disease all by himself. With your support, he can defeat cancer and get his life back.

Dear Supporters,

I have good news to share with all of you today. My son Santosh has completed all the chemotherapies successfully. He has also undergone the Bone Marrow Transplant procedure approximately three months back.

I would like to apologize to all of you for not keeping you posted regularly about his health but amidst his health and all the running around I just could not take a moment to keep you posted. A few tests were conducted and I was a suitable match. I also donated a part of my bone marrow to him and I am also doing good now.

The doctors have advised us to visit the hospital once every month and they conduct a few tests. Based on the reports they suggest the changes or make minor additions or deletions to his existing medication. He will be on medication until his health stabilises.

By the Almighty's grace and your support, blessings and prayers he did not have any complications as such. There were minor hiccups but everything is good now. Please do pray for his health and speedy recovery.

Thank you!
