Rare Condition Damaged This 8-Year-Old's Kidneys, He Needs Urgent Treatment To Survive

“Even strong adults become weak after 1-2 episodes of vomiting and diarrhoea - my son is just an 8-year-old boy. For almost 10 days, he had a continuous fever and vomited 4-5 times a day. It sucked the life out of him and no medicine was making him feel better. He couldn’t even walk to the bathroom to vomit and would fall if he tried to get up from the bed to go to the washroom. It was a living hell for him! And then, he was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition and it is slowly killing my child....” - Parboti, mother

His kidneys have stopped functioning

8-year-old Supriyo was rushed to the hospital in a very critical condition. His body was pale and he had no energy to even move his finger. After examination, it was found that his kidneys were not functioning and he was put on immediate dialysis. Soon, Supriyo was diagnosed with a very rare condition - Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).

It is a condition that can occur when the small blood vessels in your kidneys become damaged and inflamed. This damage can cause clots to form in the vessels. The clots clog the filtering system in the kidneys and lead to kidney failure, which could be life-threatening. Supriyo is nearing a dangerous stage and he needs immediate treatment to survive.

One filter around his neck costs more than what I earn

“All the money that I had has been spent on the treatment so far. My child’s life depends on this treatment but I have no resources left to continue it. He has a filter around his neck that helps purify his blood, but it costs more than what I earn in a month, and it needs to be changed every 3 days. He needs blood tranfusions every other day and I am unable to bear that too. How will I save my son like this? It seems impossible.” - Soumen, father

Soumen has a small photo studio and with his income, he cannot afford the treatment. He needs help.

He needs urgent treatment to survive

“Every other day my son is pricked with needles but he doesn’t feel them anymore. He is so used to it now. No child should be used to such a painful thing. He is all we have and watching him suffer is killing us. I am unable to do anything and it makes me feel so helpless.  Without this treatment, he will not be able to survive and that scares me so much. Please help us save our son.” - Parboti, mother

Supriyo needs hemodialysis and regular transfusions to survive and it would cost these parents more than 12 lakh rupees which they can only get with your help.
