Please spread the word.

Here is the original mail.

Dear All,
We are sorry…..this delayed update is a result of phases that we went through during the past 2 month stay in Bangalore for Anvi’s transplant. And since then we have been going through different phases of life and facing all sorts of challenges.  The day we admitted Anvi at Narayana Hrudayala Hospital for her pre transplant check up, she was directly shifted to ICU because of an active respiratory infection. Following a complication in a procedure she was put on ventilator for 3 days.  During our stay in hospital she went through lot of procedures and many blood tests. After fighting all odds and several phases of hard time, by god’s grace, doctor’s efforts and prayers of our family and well wishers, Anvi has come out strong and with the will power to fight it out and begin a new life.
And now when Anvi is doing well and according to the doctors in best of her health for the Bone Marrow Transplant, new challenge arises. The perfect match donor from USA for Anvi, for which we have been informed that importing the bone marrow donor cells from USA will cost $ 38,715 i.e. approximately INR. 21, 30,000. It came as a shock to us as we were not aware of this fact earlier. Also Anvi was scheduled to be admitted today for her transplant but our budget planning has been critically disturbed by this new update and hence the transplant procedure has been paused till we find a way out to accumulate the required funds. As per new calculations the total budget is approximate 34 lakhs and we would need 20 lakh more to complete the transplant. An appeal to you all to help us raise these funds by broadcasting this in your friends group. Will be thankful to you all if you could pass this on to whoever is interested in helping us in any form. We know that there are so many people who have been kind and helped us monetarily to accumulate a huge amount but we still require your help to raise the required funds and sincerely looking forward to everyone’s help, prayers and blessing for Anvi …….
P.S : We have attached the invoice which we have received from NMDP USA for transporting the donor’s cell to India. Also we have already spent Rs. 7 lakhs for Anvi’s treatment out of which Rs 2.9 lakhs were sent to USA as donor’s search management and infection control test fees. And the rest amount is spent on Anvi’s hospitalization, several test and medications. Now Anvi is being treated under medical supervision of Dr. Sharat Damodar MD, DNB, DM Consultant Haematologist and Head of Bone marrow transplant unit and Dr. Shobha Badiger MD, Consultant Pediatric Oncologist at Narayana Hrudayalaya Woman & Child Institute Bangalore. If you have any doubts please feel free to ask us, also doctor's nubers can be shared for authentication, we are so thankful for all the support we have received till date, all this is possible only because of your help.
