Pranav who is 19 is a resident of Bramhapuri, district Chandrapur. He began to suffer in June 2019. When the blood test was done, it showed that his blood platelets were getting low. On July 21, when Pranav was shown to a local doctor, the doctor immediately said that he should do CBC and HB tests. When the CBC test was conducted, his platelet count came to about 6 thousand, while the normal count should be up to 2 lakhs to 3.75 lakh and his HB test count was also extremely low. Due to his low blood platelets, the doctor recommended that he should be immediately shifted to Care Hospital Nagpur. He was immediately shifted to Nagpur, where his platelets were counted again. The next day when there was no improvement in his platelets, the doctor suggested that to undergo a bone marrow test. In the bone marrow test, doctors detected leukemia ALL. The test and treatment of care hospital had already taken 1 lakh in 3 days, which was an extremely high amount for his family. Then his family decided that further treatment and all tests will be done from the National cancer institution (NCI), Nagpur. Pranav's treatment started at NCI for about a month and a half. After a month and a half, when he was discharged from the hospital, he was discharged with protocols that he would have to keep visiting every week or every two weeks, for his ongoing treatment. Everything was going well till 18th January of this year when he suddenly started getting ill and his health started deteriorating. Then he was immediately shifted to Nagpur, where the doctor felt that his high-dose medicines might be the reason for his poor health. But on January 21, his health started getting worse and the doctor immediately admitted him to the special ward where he was again tested for bone marrow. The result of the bone marrow test resulted in 90% blasting. After 90% blasting, the doctor said that now Pranav needs to do a bone marrow transplant and he will be sent to TATA MEMORIAL hospital in MUMBAI.
A year and a half ago, when Pranav was diagnosed with blood cancer, since then, the family members of Pranav are trying hard to arrange money. The relatives and acquaintances are supporting them, as their monitory condition is not so good. As Pranav is just 19, we must try supporting him, so that he could start a new life soon. The doctor has said that a bone marrow transplant will cost around Rs 20 lakhs and for a lower-middle-class family, this amount is excessively big. The pandemic of COVID 19 has already affected the financial situation of many individuals. So why don't we come together and contribute financial help to give life to a young boy? Every sum of money will be used in Pranav's treatment. Remember a small contribution from all of us can make a huge difference in PRANAV's life.
