- Pavan, father
She lives transfusion to transfusion2-year-old Priyanshi was diagnosed with Thalassemia, a severe blood disease, when she was just a few months old. Ever since then, her parents have been running pillar to post, one blood bank to the other for regular blood transfusions.
“When they told us about her ailment, we didn’t know what it meant. It was only when we saw her so weak and almost at the verge of fainting, once in every 25 days, that we knew it was like a vicious cycle that would never end but only intensify. Priyanshi keeps crying, unable to explain what she is going through, and I can only imagine her pain.” - Pavan
Soon, even transfusions won't be able to save herWatching their little girl suffer like that is no less than hell for these parents. As the day of her transfusion nears, her body turns pale, her eyes swell up. She is not her active self anymore and that's how they know that it’s time. These transfusions are what have kept her alive so far, but they won't be able to help her anymore. What she needs now is a bone marrow transplant.
“All these people around me would tell ‘your daughter will die’, and merely the thought of it used to kill me... But now, I'm terrified that it is turning into a reality. Soon even the transfusions that have been keeping her alive all this time, won’t be able to help her. She needs a transplant immediately but we... we can’t afford it.” - Pavan
Only you can help
“I work in a small company earning just 8,000 rupees each month, which is barely enough to keep my family afloat let alone afford any kind of medical treatment. Neither do I have land nor any kind of assets that I can sell and get my daughter’s treatment done. Where will I get so much money from? If I can’t afford the transplant, I will lose my daughter and I don’t can't have that. I can't lose my baby. Please help me save her.” - Pavan
The transplant will cost around 15 lakh rupees, a sum that this father can never afford. But you can help. Your small contribution can help achieve this huge goal. Click here to donate.
