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,

Thank you all for the love and support. Your response has been truly inspiring and overwhelming.

Ratan had successfully crossed 100 days after transplant. He has crossed the first phase post transplant. He is stable and active. Still under regular observation and IVIG is given every month to maintain his immunity level. Thank you all for your support. Bless him and pray for him to recover completely without any further complications.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for the love and support.

Ratan is still under observation and taken to the hospital weekly twice. As I had mentioned in the previous update he had got an infection called CMV, which is now getting under control with separate medications for that. Still the virus counts has to reduce completely. All his platelet counts should also reach the normal state for his complete recovery. Hope everything becomes normal for him. Thank you all for your support.

Please pray for his speedy recovery.

Thanks

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for this immense support and love.

Here is the latest update on Ratan's treatment: He has got early stage of CMV Virus infection which is spreading faster. No other body parts are affected yet. Medications have been given for 1.5 weeks. If it's not cured for this medication, he needs to be admitted to hospital again. Hope it recovers completely within a week.

Please do keep him in your prayers!
