Even a small infection could have killed him
“The doctor told us that our son basically had no real immune system. Any infection, even small, could kill him because his body can’t defend itself. And so his whole life we’ve sheltered him as much as possible. We rarely let him go outside, we never let him eat outside food, we made him wash his hands at least 4-5 times a day. My wife used to even clean the whole house twice a day with a disinfectant. But now, somehow, he still got sick.” -Subeesh, father
He gasped for breath and started turning blueA few weeks ago,little Ishaan started coughing so much and so badly that he was gasping for air. The breathlessness and lack of oxygen soon became so severe that the tips of his fingers started turning blue. His parents wasted no time in admitting him into an ICU. While the doctors managed to stabilize his condition quickly enough, they only had bad news for the young parents.
“They told us that… that his condition was too severe now. Home care wouldn’t be enough anymore, he would need a bone marrow transplant. And not just to live a normal life… but to live at all. I can’t help but think it’s because of me that he is here now. Maybe I didn’t do enough, or clean enough. What if it’s my fault that my son might…might…”– Shyama, mother, unable to continue
A bone marrow transplant is the only solution, but his parents can’t afford itIn truth, it’s not Shyama’s fault. Without the dedicated love and care that his parents showed him, little Ishaan may not have made it this far at all. It was inevitable that he would need a bone marrow transplant to get permanently get cured of his condition. But as a carpenter, Subeesh can’t even dream of affording the surgery.
Over the past 6 years, he has already spent lakhs for Ishaan’s daily medication and frequent hospitalization. He has had to take so many loans that almost all the money he earns nowadays goes towards paying off the interest. He will not be able to pay for the transplant and save his son, without your help.
