9 years of pain and struggle can come to an end.

“When the doctor told us they found a fully matched donor and that our child can be saved , we started crying out of happiness. For nine long years, she has been visiting one hospital after another, having innumerable medicines and endless blood transfusions. Now... now it all can end.” - Arthina, mother


Tejaswini was 6 months old when her father noticed that she was getting ill regularly. He was concerned about the underlying reason, and didn't wait and took her to the doctors. She was diagnosed with Thalassemia major, a blood disease. Only a bone marrow transplant can save her now.

“I knew my baby wouldn't be falling sick that frequently without a reason. But I never thought it would be such a severe blood disease. Ever since then she has been taking medications.” - Raju, father

But what if I fail, what if I lose her

Due to blood transfusions, iron content in her body kept on increasing and now, she can’t depend on them any longer. Raju is a small agent who helps people fill their online applications for which he earns merely enough to afford medicines for Tejaswini let alone a transplant but without the transplant, she won't be able to survive.

“Bone marrow transplant can save her but it is costing us so much. I don’t get more than Rs 200-300 a day and God knows how we have managed so far, taking loans and repaying slowly with my income,...but 30 lakhs? How will I...? What if I fail to save my child?”


Arthina and Raju knew how dangerous this disease was but they never showed their fear to Tejaswini. Even though they had to visit a lot of hospitals and had to afford regular blood transfusions, they made sure she had a positive environment at home and never let her think that she is sick otherwise.


“She loves to play football with her sister in the house and rides her little cycle. She loves her but fights with her too, like all other siblings. It is such a happy moment for us when we see her this active. But most of the time, she remains weak, she complains of knee and backache. Even the smallest of injuries can lead to life-threatening infections and we have lived in fear all these years.”

She has struggled all her life and now that she has hope to completely recover, Raju is unable to afford it.He needs your help to save Tejaswini from this deadly disease. Click here to contribute.
