It started with a fever:Back in 2016, Siddesh had a mild fever. On consultation, he was diagnosed with leukemia. Siddesh was admitted in Tata Memorial Hospital- in Khargar, Mumbai, where he took chemotherapy. After a month of chemotherapy, doctors realized that his bone marrow was not responding to the treatment. The only option, they told Ravindar, was for a Bone Marrow Transplant.

A relapse a mere 4 days after the BMT:
A mere 4 days after he was discharged from the hospital, Siddesh’s white blood cell count began increasing. From a healthy level of 10,200- Siddesh’s count increased to over 34,000. Doctors now advised a stem cell transplant, using Siddesh’s brother’s stem cells. This procedure would cost them a further 3 lakhs.
