Story

We are friends of Anurag Mishra, a humble and down to earth person with an ever smiling face and unparallel willpower. He belongs to an economically middle class family from Gorakhpur(UP), and despite all odds managed to opt engineering currently he is completing his last semester from VIT University. Since last three years unfortunately, he is now suffering from Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) which is a rare, life-threatening disease of the blood characterized by destruction of red blood cells (hemolytic anemia), blood clots (thrombosis), and impaired bone marrow function (not making enough of the three blood components). and needs an urgent transplant. Anurag has numerous family responsibilities and is unable to bear the cost of the transplant. His family has depleted all their savings during the tests and dialysis. Christian Medical College, Vellore has recommended immediate bone marrow transplant and estimated the cost of operation and subsequent care to be around INR 35 lakhs and present bill was gone up to 20 lakhs... total 55 lakhs is in need for treatment...

In last three years he has been admitted 5 times in CMC vellore, and every time has had 2 blood transfusion at least. He is living with a very critical hemoglobin level (max 8).
Only cure to this disease PNH is bone marrow transplantation which doctors have been postponing because it has a certain amount of risk but 1 month ago his hemoglobin level went down to 3 and he was admitted in CMC, Vellore, Doctors figured out that he was diagnosed with an other disease Thrombosis ( a blood clot inside a blood vessel) near spleen. He was admitted for 12 days this time and hospitalization cost INR 2 lakhs. Since now he has thrombosis also, Doctors suggest that now he should go for bone marrow transplant cause it is the only option left. After he got discharged , he has been taking high dose of steroids and other very costly medicines, very costly checkups.
As he does not have HLA matched sibling donor, best option for him would be to undergo peripheral blood stem transplant with matched unrelated donor(MUD). The estimated cost of MUD in CMC Vellore is approximately INR 35,00,000 .
His family can not afford this huge amount as he belongs to agrarian family. Please help us to save his life. Please donate some money so that he can live his life.
