Story

My friend Ramakrishna's son Dileep (17 years old) has been diagnosed with a disease called 'Aplastic Anemia'. Rama Krishna is an auto rickshaw driver. He is a very nice person. I still remember the tag line on his auto which says 'old people and kids get a free ride'. Its really unfortunate to see such a nice person in this situation.

Aplastic anemia is a rare, potentially fatal disease in which the bone marrow doesn't make enough blood cells. The bone marrow is the central portion of the bones that is responsible for making: Red blood cells, which carry oxygen. White blood cells, which fight infection.

Bone marrow transplant is the only option he has now. Currently doctors are testing Dileep's younger brother's bone marrow if it can be a match but even it is a match, bone marrow transplantation is an expensive procedure costing upto 35 Lakhs in INR (Approximately $50K). Being an auto rikshaw driver, my friend cannot afford this much of amount without our support. Once he finds a match (hopefully his younger brother's), bone marrow needs to be transplanted ASAP as his current hemoglobin count dropped to around 3gm (normal range is 13-17gm) and platelet count has dropped to 0.10 Lakhs/cumm (normal range is (1.5 - 4.4 Lakhs/cumm).

Currently he is in a very critical condition and surviving on blood transfusions every few days.

Please share, support & contribute as much as possible. Nothing is small or big. Every penny counts. Thank you all in advance.
