8 Years Old Suraj needs your Help Fight Tumor in Spinal Cord

Despite being 8 years old, Suraj still can't walk without any support. He can't even perform some of the basic day to day tasks without someone's help, as he falls after every 2 steps. He doesn't go to school and can't play like other children of his age.

Suraj is suffering from a rare congenital condition called Spina Bifida, which affects Spinal Cord and Brain development of a new born. Treatment for this condition includes multiple Spinal surgeries and continuous Physiotherapy support.








Suraj  has already undergone two surgeries in 2012 to remove tumor and to install a cord and a device in his brain, however, he is still unable to walk properly and needs physical support in some very basic tasks as well.




My name is Anurag and I am trying to raise funds for Suraj and his family to support his ongoing treatment and their financial necessities. I've known Suraj and his family for 2 years.



Currently Suraj is undergoing Medication and Physiotherapy sessions in Bangalore. His parents have contacted multiple hospitals but because of lack of funds, they are not yet able to get him admitted. Until now, they have spent around Rs. 8,00,000, since 2012.




They've arranged all of this amount from their savings and considering the monthly expenses they're incurring, it's very hard for them to make ends meet for daily expenses as well. 

We need around Rs 8,00,000 more for Medication, continued physiotherapy support ( ~ 6 Lac - until Suraj is 16 yrs old) , further surgery ( ~ 4 - 4.5 Lac) and Suraj's education. The cost of Physiotherapy itself is 7200 Rs per month and rehabilitation should be continued until Suraj is 16 years old, for him to fully recover from the condition.

Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.

Hi All,

Thanks to all the donors and Milaap for your support.

Suraj's case has been accepted in Nimhans under pediatric neurology and Spinal surgery has been scheduled for 30/March/2020. Although Nimhans is a government entity, but still 20% of the operating costs will be charged.

The total cost for this surgery is around 4 to 4.5 lac. Along with this, they asked Suraj to undergo urology related tests, Spinal and brain MRI and other related tests which costed around 20,000. He might need a urinal surgery as well, as it was identified that his body's urine holding capacity is 100 ml less than a normal child. So, this money will be utilized in facilitating Spinal and urinal tumor related surgery. Along with this, we will be utilizing this money in Suraj's Ongoing rehabilitation as well. He will need rehabilitation physiotherapy until he is 16 years old.

Thanks to all from the bottom of our heart for your unconditional support. It means a lot to a family. I will keep you updated on Suraj's progress. Let's pray for a successful surgery and his quick recovery.
