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 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!

Thanks

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support. Ratan has been discharged from Aster CMI Hospital by last weekend. We have taken a rental house nearby hospital temporarily. He has to be taken to hospital 2 days once for routine check up to monitor all his cell counts and health status on regular basis. This has to be continued for atleast 3 months.

So far he is stable with some cold and cough. He is still isolated even at home to prevent from any further infections. Hope he recovers completely within couple of months.

Thank you for all your support and prayers for him.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the support. Ratan is still under observation. All the cell and platelet counts were completely down last week with some side effects. But the counts has been increasing for past 3-4 days and doctors said that these are positive signs and he is getting better. He will be still under observation until all the counts reach normal range. Will keep you posted.

Please pray for his health and speedy recovery.

Thank you!
