My Brother Is Fighting For Life And We Need Your Support To Save Him

Hello, my name is Pratistha Srivastava and I am raising funds for my brother Prateek’s treatment. Prateek is 28 yrs and a very promising young man who has been diagnosed with a rare form of life-threatening Blood Cancer - Acute Myeloid Myeloma (Leukemia) and is undergoing treatment at Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, New Delhi from the last 2 months. During his treatment, Prateek was also diagnosed with Covid19 and is since then undergoing treatment in ICU.


Prateek’s Treatment process requires Chemo Therapy followed by Bone Marrow Transplant. There is a parallel process wherein Prateek has to be infused with Plasma (to recover from Covid), Platelets (required 2-3 times per week), and regular units of WBC as his body is unable to make blood on its own.
 
The estimated time for the surgery and post-surgery hospitalization is total approx 3-4 months. The estimated cost of the entire treatment including post-hospitalization care and follow-up is approx Rs 70 Lakhs to Rs 80 lakhs (approx USD $ 1,00,000) and the family is in no position to bear this cost.

My family is of 4 people..My father is retired , Mother is a house wife (also suffering from Corona), and I had to leave my job to be with my family and manage the Hospital formalities. My father has exhausted all his Life's savings , used all his family's resources and yet we are no where near the amount required. Each day in the hospital is adding more and more amount to the bill for his Medicines , Covid Care , Plasma infusion, WBC infusion , Platelets infusion and other hospital expenses.

Prateek is a hard working young man with a Hotel Management from IHM-Bangalore and an MBA from IITTM,Noida. His confidence is still high and he cannot wait to start working again so that he can support his Loving parents.

We urge you to come forward and help a brother and family in need of your support. We may not be able to offer anything in return but we would remember you all in our prayers. We really really need your help. We appreciate each and every contribution from your end and thank you for your kind contribution to support this cause. God bless!!

Dear All,  We cannot Thank you all enough for the support , love and prayers extended by all of you. We are forever indebted to all of you for your generosity extended. Our prayers and blessings to you all.

Prateek's Health Update

 Unfortunately , On 24-09-2020 Prateek was again tested positive for Covid19. The doctor's have advised another 10 days of Covid treatment and he will remain in isolation till 3rd Oct, 2020. The next Covid test will be done on 3rd Oct.

Due to the multiple complications, there is a constant drop in his Platelets and WBC count. So far we are arranging for 2-3 Units of Platelets and 1-2 units of WBC per week for Prateek. As on 29th Sept Prateek has been infused with 20 units of SDPs , 9 units of blood , 20 units of RDPs ,3 units of Granulocyte (WBCs).
We are trying our level best to keep Prateek encouraged during all of this. However , since he is in Covid care , we do not have complete access to him. We have been passing your msgs to Prateek and he is overwhelmed by the love received from all of you.

The Way forward

It is important that Prateek starts responding to the treatments soon and recovers from Covid asap. The constant dip in his platelets and WBC counts are a reason to worry. Once he recovers from Covid , doctors will advise a suitable date for Bone Marrow Transplant.


Thank you once again everyone for your support. Please pray for Prateek's speedy recovery.

Prateek is yet to recover from Covid19 completely. He had to undergo  Plamsa infusion for his Covid since WBC count  reduced a lot. After this , his Chemo Therapy will resume and after that his Bone marrow transplant will take place. There is a 30 days hospitalization that is required after the Bone Marrow Transplant operation.
