Tom needs your help to fight Leukemia

Why am I fundraising?

Tom hails from Idukki District in Kerala. He is 3.5 years old and is the only son of Jo and Litty who are from an agricultural background. Their peaceful life changed overnight when Tom was diagnosed with Leukemia (B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia to be precise) 2 weeks back. Tom is currently admitted in CMC Vellore for advanced treatment. As per his doctor at CMC ideal treatment for this disease is chemotherapy followed by Stem Cell Transplant. The estimated cost of the Stem Cell Transplant would be as high as Rs. 50, 00000 (Rupees Fifty lakhs). Jo is not in a position to raise such a huge amount as his only source of income is farming. He is seeking your prayers and financial support for Tom’s treatment
Request you to make generous contribution to this noble cause.
I am initiating this campaign on behalf of Jo
Thanking you
Pius Sebastian

Dear Supporters

Thanks for your continued support and prayers. Also apologies for not providing an update for few months.

Tom is on his way to recovery. He is now discharged from CMC and is on Maintenance mode now. Tom is currently at his native place in Kerala. His Chemotherapy sessions are going on. Tom goes to a hospital in Kochin (Rajagiri Medical College) once in 15 days for Chemotherapy and does the review in CMC Vellore once in 3 months. His WBC count is stable ever since he is discharged from hospital. His overall health is improving. I am attaching a recent Photograph. Improvement is quite visible

On the flip side stem cell transplant could not be done because of lack of fully matched donors for the transplant. Doctors don’t want to do it with partial match and the one full match person is not ready to donate citing health/ logistics reasons. Doctors are taking a wait and watch approach now. They will go for the transplant with partial match donors only if the situation worsens. We hope and pray that he recovers fully.

Once again thanks for your continued support and prayers.
