"I have no words to console my son. I can no longer tell him that it is only infections that is causing the intense pain he suffers every minute. Both my sons were diagnosed with the same disease at the same time. My elder son is completely paralyzed and he cannot speak. Now, we are helplessly watching Suganthan, our younger son slip away from us. His condition is deteriorating every day. I feel terrible that I'm not able to do anything." - Mangai, Mother of 10-year-old Suganthan.
Suganthan has a rare disorder that can damage his body parts and even turn fatalSuganthan was active until he turned 7. Suddenly, his body started swelling. His parents thought it may be due to an insect bite. But they were terrified when the swelling kept spreading all over his body. They took him to the hospital immediately and he was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called X- linked Agammaglobulinemia, an inherited immunodeficiency in which the body is unable to produce the antibodies needed to fight against bacteria and viruses. He is prone to multiple, recurring infections of the lungs, sinuses and other areas.
"I have not heard about this condition before and I was shocked to know that my son's life is in danger. Doctors said there are chances that my other son can also have the same disease and the scan reports confirmed it. I was completely shattered. Since then I have been spending sleepless nights and running to everyone I knew, trying all the possible ways to save my children but I fail miserably." - Jayakumar, Father.
Only a bone marrow transplant can save Suganthan's life; any delay can result in deathIt has been 3 years since Suganthan and his brother Sandeep were diagnosed with this terrible disease. They undergo hemoglobin transfusions every month which costs around Rs 40,000 per month. Suganthan's condition has become so worse now that transfusions are not enough anymore. He needs a bone marrow transplant to survive.
"He is hardly talking and has become very weak. I do not have the strength to even look at him. Even the painkillers are not helping him. He is in unbearable pain. Every passing minute is a risk on his life but when I can't afford even the medicines and transfusions how can I arrange funds for the transplant?-Jayakumar
"We failed to give hemoglobin transfusion for a month because we didn't have money. The following month my elder son got a brain tumor and was paralyzed completely. I feel terrible about it and I'm not able to hold my guilt. Suganthan has stopped talking but I can see the fear in his eyes. I cannot imagine losing him"-Mangai
