“We took him to a doctor in the city and they ran some blood tests. Results revealed that he had some blood disease that was killing him! He needed an urgent blood transfusion.”
Blood transfusions temporarily reduce his scary symptoms
“Ever since the diagnosis, we’ve been getting him a blood transfusion at least once a month. It helps to reduce the symptoms for a few days, but even just a week later we can see signs of his health going down again. He starts eating less and less, he starts breathing more heavily. He also gets more and more fussy, seemingly uncomfortable and in pain no matter what we do. We know it’s time for his next transfusion when he starts gasping for breath while just lying down!” — Rameshwari, mother
His disease is slowly and painfully suffocating his body
A transplant can save his life, but the cost is too much for Subhash
“I work in the agriculture department and with the modest sum I make, I have to afford rent, afford Ranshu’s medicines and blood transfusion, and take care of my aged parents, not to mention putting food on all our plates at least twice a day. A bone marrow transplant will cost 18 lakhs! There is no way a man like me can afford that. The idea that my son will die because I can’t afford his treatment is just... there is no worse feeling in the world for a father. Please, think of Ranshu as your own son, and save him. Maybe you can be a better father to him than...” — Subhash, breaking down
Little Ranshu needs all the help he can get. Doctors are saying he needs a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible, but Subhash can’t bear the cost. You can help by clicking here to donate.
