    This fundraiser will benefit

    Karthikeyan R

    from Madurai, Tamil Nadu

Karthikeyan Ravichandran (Karthik), a bright young lad in his thirties, had just got married and was looking forward to live a cheerful life as all newly weds do. In December 2019, high misfortune struck the family and what started in the guise of a viral flu attack turned out to be Acute ProMyelocytic Leukemia (Variant APML). He is being treated at Meenakshi Mission Hospital, Madurai, India since then. It estimated that the cost of treatment could go upwards of US $60000.

His brother, parents and close friends of Karthik are trying by all means to raise funds. We (Team Karthik) know Karthik very well through his brother Viswa (our college mate ). We've set this  Milaap campaign help for Karthik's medical expenses.

We have received the summary of initial evaluation, line of treatment performed so far and the future course of treatment.  Dr Krishna Kumar Rathnam, Senior Consultant, HOD Dept of Hemato Oncology-Medical Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation at the Meenakshi Mission Hospital & Research Centre has endorsed an approximate estimate for the next course of treatment.  

Karthik has been suggested to undergo Matched Unrelated Donor Bone Marrow Transplantation and the initial estimate as been pegged at USD $43835 (INR 32L).

Please help Karthik in whatever way you can
1) Donate as much as you can. No donation is too small
2) SHARE on social media (#HelpKarthik)
3) EMAIL this page - milaap.org/fundraisers/support-karthikeyan-r  - to your family + friends.
