Deepak Lost His Sister To The Same Disease That Is Killing His Son Now

34-year-old Deepak has spent the last 3 years worrying about the health of his baby son. He cannot bear the thought of losing him to the same diseases that he lost his beloved sister to 20 years back. It's like the nightmare has returned to haunt him.

Deepak got married to Arsha 11 years ago. The couple has a 10 year old daughter Tamannah, and 3 year old Tarun. Deepak runs a small general store in Bhairagarh in Bhopal. Everything was fine with the family until Tarun was three months old. Everything was fine with the family until Tarun was three months old.

Three month old Tarun started showing signs of weakness

Deepak and Arsha took their son to the local doctor in Bhairagarh. Doctors treated him and were about to discharge him. It was a Saturday morning when the family was ready to leave for home. Tarun had a fever again that morning, and doctors performed a few more tests.

The test results were sent to Mumbai. Three days later, the diagnosis was that Tarun was positive for Thalassemia- a major disease where the body starts attacking its own cells. Doctors said that Tarun had to have blood transfusions every two weeks. Every time, Deepak and Arsha take Tarun to the doctor- Deepak has to close down the shop for the day.

Deepak heard that treatment was good at CMC Vellore

He brought Tarun down to CMC and was told that the only treatment for Tarun was a bone marrow transplant.

“My sister had the same disease. Twenty years before, we were on our way back from our Nani’s house in Ujjain. Her blood transfusion was delayed and she collapsed in the railway station.”
Twenty years ago, Deepak lost his sister Nina to the same disease that his son now suffers from. Deepak cannot even imagine the possibility of Tarun meeting with the same end

How can you help?

Tarun’s Bone Marrow Transplant is expected to cost Rs 14 lakhs. Tamannah’s bone marrow has been tested- and it is a perfect match. Doctors have scheduled the operation in November 2017. Deepak cannot afford the cost of the operation- and is desperate to save his baby boy.
