Help Samarth Undergo A Life Saving Surgery

Samarth is a 12-year-old boy suffering from thalassemia major since he was 6 months old. For the last 12 years, Samarth has been undergoing countless rounds of blood transfusions and has been only relying on such sessions to stay alive. He needs to get the transfusions done in every 10 days and has to travel more than 200 Kms each time. The only option for Samarth to remain fit is by undergoing a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) which will cost 22 lakhs, which is an impossible figure for his parents to arrange as the parents barely manage to earn 15 thousand rupees a month and need financial assistance. Your support can save a young boy's life and help him continue his education.

Growing up hasn't been easy for Samarth

In 2005, Samarth's parents, Mahantesh and Savita were extremely happy to give birth to the brother to their daughter Swati, Once again their life was going to circle around looking after a newborn. Samarth was a healthy and a joyful baby, things were absolutely normal till the time he turned six months old.Samarth started falling ill frequently, his body constantly used to have high body temperature and he used to frequently catch a cold.

Seeing his condition the parents got extremely concerned and took him to a local pediatrician, however the pediatrician was unable to diagnose the actual problem and started treating him for common cold. When his condition did not improve the parents took him to a better hospital in Solapur where after some series of tests the diagnosis was confirmed as Thalassemia Major. The doctor advised the parents that Samarth would have to undergo frequent blood transfusions and would have to undergo Bone Marrow Transplant in future in order to get completely cured.

Samarth's elder sister Swati was identified as the donor however the parents could not afford the transplant that time and unfortunately had to only rely on blood transfusions.

Life has been tough for the family for the last 12 years. However, nobody seems to give up on the hope of seeing Samarth completely cured of the disease.Samarth requires blood transfusion in every 10 days and in order to get that done he travels and covers a distance of 200 kms in a day. He and his mother get up around 3 am so that they may be able to catch a train to Solapur as the travel is cheaper by the train, in case they miss it they have to pay extra for the bus tickets.  The family spends almost 6000 rupees per month to ensure Samarth stays healthy.

His sister Swati is a grown up kid now, she constantly asks her father as to why cant they get his brother treated and hopes to see his pain go away soon.
