" I miss playing with my friends at school and in my street ", says Shriharan. Shriharan is just 11 years old. An year ago, he was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, where body stops producing enough new blood cells. He requires a bone marrow transplant to get treated.
During last year summer vacation, Shriharan all of a sudden blacked out and fell down and when his parents took him to Pediatrician. After taking blood test doctor suggested to take him to GKNM Hospital, Coimbatore. Following many tests the doctors informed that Shriharan is diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia.
" Just one day my son got fainted and it turned out to be Aplastic Anemia. In just one day, our playful son’s life completely changed. From borrowing money to pay school fee, to now waiting for money to pay for my son's bone marrow transplant, my life and my son's life got changed "- Says Raja (Father)
When Shriharan was admitted in Apollo, the doctors really appreciated him because he was strong and bold enough to tolerate his pain. When the doctors tested Shriharan's elder brother Yogeshwaran to find donor match, they found that his bone marrow will be 80% match. Currently, Shriharan is undergoing treatments and tests to find of his elder brother's bone marrow will completely match him.
Father Raja worked for daily wages in farm field and mother is a teacher in a private primary school, belonging to small village near Salem. The family has now shifted to Chennai for the treatment and staying at a rented room near hospital to reduce the hospital room charges.
" Due to lack of blood, my son cannot walk normally like other children. We led a simple life in our village. But today, we are spending nights in hospital for our son's life. It feels so terrible to watch my son getting injected every 4 hours and how much he is going through " - Gomathi (mother)
