Over 500 Bottles Of Blood Failed to Cure This Boy, Needs Urgent Help

These days Rudraksh gets up early on those mornings when he needs to get a blood transfusion. He wakes up his mom, Koyel and asks her to get ready fast. ‘Maa, you don’t want to be late for the game of scrabble tonight, right? So let’s just go and get over with this. After that we shall have a great time - beating Baba in the game.” Koyel looks at the similing face of her son and gets reminded of those times when it was her turn to cajole little Rudraksh and promise him treats while taking him for his regular transfusions. But now he is used to all this. He has already had around 200 blood transfusions but his blood disease is nowhere near getting cured. The doctors have told that only a bone marrow transplant can help him lead a healthy life.  

The outdoor beckons to little Rudraksh but his disease doesn’t grant him the permission for fun and frolic

Rudraksh is 10-years-old and is in now in 5th standard. He is very good in studies and is the class topper. Besides studies, loves being outdoors and one of his favourite pastime is to watch his mother taking care of the plants in their house. But he is aware that too much of excitement is a strict no-no for him. He was diagnosed with Thalassemia Major at a very young age and since then his life has always been full of restrictions. In this disease, the blood has lower than normal amounts of oxygen producing protein.
 
“These days it has become difficult for me to keep him at home. He wants to go to his friend’s birthday parties, plan picnics with them and when I ask him not to, he gets upset and angry with me. But I am helpless, I wish I could fulfill all his wishes but I am scared that he will get even more sick,” - Koyel. 

Pizzas, vacations and a normal childhood - that’s all what this little boy wants

Rudraksh looks at every other child his age - he sees them going on long vacations with their parents, going to their favourite pizza joints for dinner and he gets upset.
 
“We used to go to Assam on every summer vacation and Rudraksh used to wait eagerly for them. But owing to his failing health we had to cut down on those trips. I know he misses them - he looks at the photo album and keeps asking me when we can go next. I really don’t know what to tell him.” 

Rudraksh needs that life-saving transplant but his parents have already spent so much more beyond their capacity

Koyel works as an English teacher in a school in Vasai, Mumbai. Her husband, Rupak works in a private firm. They have spent a lot on Rudraksh’s treatment for the last 10 years. But now even their combined earnings are falling short to continue with their son’s treatment. He needs a bone marrow transplant that would cost them Rs 30 lakhs. But Koyel and Rupak are fearing that they won’t be able to afford it without help. 

How you can help

Little Rudraksh is fighting a blood disease that is making him weaker with every passing day. The parents are pinning all the hope on the bone marrow transplant but the costs are coming in their way. But you can ensure that Rudraksh gets better soon and gets to enjoy his pizzas and vacations by making just a small donation. Your kind gesture will bring back the smile on their faces.
