Hariprasad aka HAPPY, fondly known for his cheerful smile to many of us right from BITS Pilani days took an un-conventional route after graduation to teach students in the last 10 years. While he was happily married and blessed with a child in July 2020 those good moments came to a halt when was diagnosed with blood cancer(AML - M5 with 82% Blasts) in January 2021.How much does it cost for his treatment?
From then on he has been hospitalised for weeks multiple times for chemotherapy at Omega Cancer Hospital, Guntur and tried to fight the battle(emotionally and financially) exhausting all his and his parents savings. Considering the fact that it will possibly take more than an year to recover he was also forced to resign from his teaching job in March 2021 and hence doesn't have any income sources to rely upon. His treatment is still on and has his next hospital admission for chemotherapy in June 2021. Happy is responding well to treatments and hence our contributions at this stage will make a difference.
Medical Expenses:How will the funds be used?
Total Estimated Cost of treatment: ~30 L (till June 2021 covering his 3 rd chemo hospitalisation)
Bills paid till now: 21L
- Insurance Coverage: 1.5L
- Personal Savings exhausted: 15 L
- Parents Debt: 5L
Unknown and continuing
How can I help?
Creating this campaign to give HAPPY and his family (a loving wife (homemaker) and a 10 month old boy) hope and help him rebuild his health, family and career very soon with the help of generous donations from kind hearted and compassionate individuals like you.
All your donations will directly reach HAPPY and will fund his treatment and other medical expenses till he recovers and finds a job. Specific and meaningful avenues will be:
1. Medical Expenses (Hospitalisation, chemotherapy sessions, medicines, tests etc)
2. Bone marrow transplant (most likely but we are assessing its need from doctors)
3. Support his family's basic needs till he recovers
Please do share it in your circles and support to bring the smile back on HAPPY's face!!
