To elaborate on Thalassemia, it is a genetic blood disorder. People with Thalassemia disease are not able to make enough hemoglobin, which causes severe anemia. Hemoglobin is found in red blood cells and carries oxygen to all parts of the body. When there is not enough hemoglobin in the red blood cells, oxygen cannot get to all parts of the body. Organs then become starved for oxygen and are unable to function properly. For the same the person suffering from thalassemia has to get a blood drip every 10-25 days.
The Bone marrow for the same costs 35,00,000/-. The fund raiser is to help my friend defeat thalassemia and have a happy future so that he does not have to face all the troubles he had till now.
