Help Ratan Undergo Bone Marrow Transplant

Hello,
I am Kavitha from Chennai, India. My sister's (Jothi) son - Ratan Nimiish is just 7 months old who is suffering from a very rare disease SCID - Severe Combined Immuno Defeciency by birth. He doesnt have immunity by birth where any small viral/bacterial/fungal infections would become a fatal disease for him. Right now he has got TB and his lungs got infected. This can also spread to other body parts. Bone Marrow Transplant is the only treatment for this disease which would cost around 25 - 30 lacs (Operation + post operation treatment costs). Both the parents family are middle class families and couldnt afford the operation cost.
The whole family is emotionally down. His survival is the only hope for both the families and their future.
He is currently discharged from PIMS, Pondicherry and we are taking him to Aster CMI Hospital, Bangalore for proceeding with his operation.
Appreciate any financial assistance to continue his treatment.

Dear Supporters,

Ratan celebrated his 1st birthday on Saturday (22nd June, 2019). Few months back, we never expected that he would cross this day. But today it had been  possible only because of all your support and blessings for him throughout his transplant. Thanks to each and every one of you for your contribution and shares in all social media which made it possible for him.

Ratan is still under medication but out of danger. He is been monitored twice a month. He is also been admitted and IVIG medicine is given to him monthly once. Hope he completely recovers soon with all your blessings.

Thanks
