Help Priyanka Joshi fight Aplastic Anaemia (Hypo Plastic Anaemia)

My name is Dharmesh Patel and am setting this fundraiser for our housemaid Priyanka Joshi (nicknamed Asha).

About her she worked as a housemaid in Marol Andheri Area of Mumbai and lives with her husband/son and daughter. Her husband works as a supervisor in a FMCG company.

She has been recently diagnosed with Hypo Plasto Anaemia , kind of rare degenerative disorder where bone marrow stops or reduces production of RBC/WBC and other blood cells. Since last 4 months her blood reports show continous decrease in blood cells triggering reduced immunity. This makes her susceptible to all types of infectious diseases. And drops her survival rate in coming 5 years if the condition is not treated effectively.

As per the consulted haematologist there are three type of treatments for this cause
1) medicines - approx cost 4 to 5lacs per year (chances to recover 40%)
2) ATG injection THERAPY - approx cost 8 to 10lacs (one time treatment) (chances to recover 65%)
3) bone marrow therapy - approx cost 10 to 15 lacs (chances to recover 80%) this treatment like blood relative donate bone marrow to patient.

Her family has opted for ATG Injection therapy since it is one time and are presently trying to accumulate 10 lacs INR of corpus.

NOTE 1: Patients financial condition is already stressed and  due to lack of accumulated corpus of 10 lacs, her family is unable to get her admitted to the consulted doctors hospital. Whatever amount is accumulated till date is getting spent in routine medicines further decreasing the overall corpus.

NOTE 2: Her BLOOD REPORT and HOSPITAL PROVIDED COST SHEET are attached here for everyones scrutiny.

Requesting all people to contribute whatever possible amount so that she can get admitted to the hospital for ATG Injection therapy.

Dear Supporters,

Here's a quick update:

Per last update from his brother - Hemant , Priyanka Joshi is doing good and recent blood reports (done in June first week) show blood platelet improvement from 25 to 35. This has to be 125 for a normal healthy person. Medication is showing improvement but albeit slow and not guaranteed how much time it can take. Family members are going to take a decision to opt for ATG injection therapy within next 2 weeks. They are currently in dilemma whether to continue for medication (45-50K per month) vs ATG Injection (10 lacs one time - which is big amount for them).

Medication can take upto a year to improve while ATG injection can take min 3months. Family members are expected to take a decision in next 2-3 weeks for ATG injection therapy.

Contribution done by all members has helped the family in maintaining their expenses of medication and blood transfusion so far.

Dear Supporters,

Here's a quick update:

Based on last weeks blood reports her platelet counts have marginally improved from 11 to 25. 125 is the normal count. She has regular checkups at Holy Spirit hospital in Mumbai - where doctor has recommended to continue on medication for next 3-4 weeks as this has shown some signs of improvement. Medication cost is around 45K INR per month.

At present their family is still working to accumulate 8-10 lacs of amount for the ATG injection therapy. Her brother - Hemant has been approved a medical loan of 4.5 lacs which is still short of 5 lacs for the required corpus.

Whatever amount each of you have contributed has helped them.  Request all to spread the word and help the family in best possible way.
Note: Contributions by me (campaign runner) and friends have been done directly in patients brothers account. This is to ensure honesty on my side as a campaign initiator.

Thanks,
Dharmesh
