He was diagnosed with a fatal blood disorder, BMT is the only curative option8 months back, Nagaraju had a high fever. They went to a local doctor, he was given medications for fever and it did not help him. Doctors knew that he had much more serious problems and suggested to take bigger hospitals. Every time they saw a doctor, the news kept getting worse. They ended up in Egmore Children’s Hospital, Chennai. He was diagnosed with a fatal blood disorder. It causes low blood count and recurrent fever. His condition became even more critical and was taken to Apollo Children’s Hospital. Doctors said that Bone Marrow Transplant is the only curative treatment for his condition.
Nagaraju’s brother Ashok is a potential donor for the bone marrow transplant but unfortunately, after the tests, it was found that it was matching only 50%. His father has volunteered to be the donor for the transplant.
He does not know about his condition, but he fears operationDespite the intense exhaustion following chemo and dreadful fever and pain, Nagaraju manages to smile and ask for his brother to play with him. Nagaraju is in 4th grade but now he can’t go to school fearing infections. He does not understand what is happening to him and he asks for his brother every now and then. His parents have told him that he has a fever but then he hears from everyone around and fears operation.

The tragedy did not end up with this when their youngest son was also diagnosed with the same disease, they were totally shattered.
