Help Ved undergo a bone marrow transplant



I am fundraising for my 18-month-old son, Ved's BMT.My son, Ved Gotecha,  is suffering from Thalassaemia Major. Thalassaemia Major is a blood disease in which the child is given blood transfusion frequency till he survives. My child needs a blood transfusion every 3 weeks.He was being diagnosed with this when he was just 8 months old. This process will increase the iron levels in the body and in order to control this there are expensive drugs. 
Doctors advised that he needs to undergo a bone marrow transplant. We have consulted with doctors at Christian Medical College (CMC). As he does not have HLA-matched sibling, The best option for him would be to undergo a peripheral blood stem cell transplant with matched unrelated donor (MUD). 
Luckily, the doctors were able to find a  a 10 / 10 HLA matched donor from the NMDP bone marrow bank.
The estimated cost for the transplant of Rs.50 lakhs. (letter dated 16 December 2015. Copies of CMC letter of BMT and the cost are enclosed herewith for kind perusal and ready reference.)

I am working in a private sector in Ahmedabad. It has been very difficult for me to make ends meet.  I have been trying hard to financially support my family of four members from my small income. But these medical expenses are way over my capacity.We have managed to raise some funds from my friends and relatives.  But we still have a long way to go.

With your support we can save my child. You can make a donation here by clicking on the 'Donate Now' button.
