Help My Brother Balkrishna To Fight leukemia. | Milaap

Help My Brother Balkrishna To Fight leukemia.

My name is Shilpa Bandekar and I am initiating a fundraiser for my brother, Balkrishna Swar. 

Balkrishna Swar is 41 years old and resides in Mumbai City, Maharashtra. He has done his PhD in Applied Biology from Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Parel, Mumbai and was working with Metropolis.   

In August 2018, Balkrishna Swar was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia (AML). He went through 4 rounds of Chemotherapy (till Jan 2019) and responded well. Unfortunately, in May 2019, he had a relapse and now cure is Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) only. The HLA typing of his siblings have tested negative. Hence, the doctors have recommended for Unrelated Donor Bone Marrow Transplant. He is being treated at ACTREC - Tata Memorial Hospital. 

As per doctor/hospital, the estimated cost of treatment is Rs. 50,00,000/- to Rs. 60,00,000/-. We expect the cost to escalate to Rs. 80,00,000/-.  This is based on our experience for the past 2 Chemotherapy sessions. The 4th Chemotherapy session cost us approx. Rs. 14,00,000/- where the average for previous 3 sessions was Rs. 7,00,000/- . Also the pre-BMT Chemotherapy (5th session) cost us Rs. 23,00,000/- where the estimate was approx.. Rs. 7,00,000/- . Till date, in all, we have already spent approx.. Rs. 60,00,000/- from our pocket towards his treatment. But arranging money for the BMT treatment is proving to be a herculean task. 

So request you to please come forward to help me save my brother. Any contribution will immensely help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your generous contributions. Sorry for this delayed update. Balkrishna is doing better now compared to earlier. We have yet not received a full 10/10 match though a 9/10 match is received. He needs to get back his strength to be taken for BMT.

We are all praying & doing all that is possible for a speedy recovery. Request you all to continue having him in your prayers. Please keep sharing and supporting. Will keep you posted.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your generous contributions. Balkrishna was admitted a few days ago to TATA hospital due to infection and fever. He is feeling better from yesterday. All our prayers are helping him get better. We are now awaiting confirmation from the donor so he can be taken for Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).

Please continue keeping him in your prayers so we soon have a successful Bone Marrow Transplant.
