Blood transfusions every 10 days - that’s what Manasa’s life has come to nowJust 2 months ago, when Manasa had a slight fever her parents took her to the hospital. But the test results shocked them. Their daughter was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia. Manasa’s body had stopped producing new blood cells. In just days, her condition worsened. She started needing blood transfusions every 10 days.
“We had no idea about this disease. Only when we started going to the hospital regularly, we met so many other parents like this whose kids were suffering from this. But some of them were so sick, often bleeding from their mouth and nose. I tried picturing my little daughter like this but I just couldn’t…” - Janaki, mother.
Her pulse dropped - they thought she would never wake upManasa became critical a week ago. There was fluid buildup in her lungs, her pulse rate dropped - her parents feared that she would never wake up again. Fortunately, she did.
“But this might not happen the next time she becomes this critical. That’s what the doctor told us. He said without a transplant Manasa can’t be saved. But we feel so helpless. We know the cost is beyond our means. Our eyes fill with tears when we look at Manasa - it seems like she has given up. Her smile - it’s gone forever,” - Janaki.
Kaliappan fears he is failing as a father, he needs your helpKailappan is a door-to-door salesman who sells bedsheets. There are some days when he makes only Rs 50. But instead of spending it on himself, he saves up for his daughter. He has already spent over 4 lakhs. His relatives and friends have helped as much as they could but that’s not enough.
“36.5 lakhs - that’s how much it will cost us. I can never arrange for so much. I feel so guilty and helpless. The only way we can save Manasa is with your help now…”- Kaliappan, father.
A generous contribution from your side will save 6-year-old Manasa's life
