    Mazumdar Shaw Medical Centre

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Praveen is diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia. His parents have been identified as potential donors and a Bone Marrow transplant is his only hope.

Aplastic Anemia is a rare disease that damages the bone marrow, due to which the production of new blood cells complete seizes. A terminal disease, if not detected early. Fortunately in Praveen's case, Madiwal appa his father immediately took him to the doctor when Praveen started to vomit blood. This raised serious concerns for his father and mother.

Not really aware of what was going on, Madiwal appa and Bhagamma brought him to a hospital in Bangalore. A blood transfusion was done but no diagnosis on what the problem was. Finally at Narayana Hrudayalaya they were informed of the problem.

Praveen hails from a remote village in Kalburgi district of Karnataka. Both parents are farmers and have given up everything to save Praveen. He also has 2 other siblings. This also makes it harder for Madiwal appa to pay for Praveen's treatment.
 
Madiwal appa and Bhagamma are still not aware of the seriousness of the disease but are only hoping that it will be solved soon and Praveen can get back to his normal life again.

He needs your support. The approximate cost of the surgery is 30 Lakhs.
