Need Urgent Help.
"Hello ladies and gentlemen I am Shubham Jaiswal. I was diagnosed with Blood Cancer CML in March 2015, while I was pursuing my Bachelor of Technology in Civil Engineering. Initially in 2015, I was being treated in my home state Chhattisgarh with medicines for around an year but my condition deteriorated as the disease infected my bone marrow and my platelets began to fall drastically.After this diagnosis, I went to Raheja Hospital in Mumbai for further treatment in 2016. I was given my first chemotherapy in this hospital after which my lower body got paralysed and I remained very ill for the next 18 days. This single session had cost me ₹ 20 lakh which my father paid off by selling our land in ancestral village.
Then I moved to Tata Memorial in July, 2016, Mumbai where my treatment continued further and I was given mild sessions of chemotherapy as it could not be avoided in treating my ailment. I was suggested to go for a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) but there were two constraints: first, they could not give me any appointment for the next one year and second, my reals sister's bone marrow matched only 50% with mine. Around ₹ 6 lakh were spent here for the entire procedure.Next on, I moved on to Christian Medical College, Vellore where my treatment is being continued till
date since then. While arranging for finance,It was reported that the cancer had already infected my central nervous system (CNS) and was immediately advised Chemotherapy sessions. I received two chemotherapy sessions which cost me ₹ 14 lakh. Then, I underwent the procedure of Bone Marrow Transplant here with the Bone Marrow of an unrelated donor (DATRI). The cost of this treatment was ₹ 35 lakh. This procedure was made possible by the support of funds from Prime Minister, Chief
Minister, friends, relatives and to all other guardian angels from the world who helped me through a crowd funding campaign on Ketto. I will be forever grateful to them for their support.Post the BMT, I was recovering. I got complications of Graft versus Host disease (GVHD) which began from my stomach followed by skin, liver and mouth. I also was diagnosed with Herpes which
infected my eyes. Consequently, I have a blurred vision while I am writing this.
Now I am Vellore to get my eye treated but in the recent reports it was found that the cancer has resurfaced and infected my bone marrow and my BMT has relapsed.
Currently I am being given chemotherapy to curb the spread of the disease while the further advised course of treatment is Donor Lymphocyte Infusion (DLI). DLI involves reinfusion of donor cells into my patient body. This procedure is more risky and has greater chances of complications of GVHD but this procedure may save my life. This is a Matched Unrelated Donor (MUD) transfer procedure which is not financially sponsored by any NGO. I have been given an estimate of ₹ 15 lakh for the same.
So here are my closing words about my ailment, all my father's earnings and savings have been exhausted. He has already withdrawn his Provident Fund and there's no help from the company where he's employed.
Ladies and gentlemen, I want to live, I have fared through my tough days and I
too want to contribute to the society with my skills. I request you all to please once again help me out to save my life. Please help me out of this situation. I will always be grateful for your support.
I have done my Bachelor of Technology in Civil Engineering. I passed my final semester in April 2018 with 87% aggregate as I was struggling with my ailment during the last two years. It took a lot of effort to restart my studies and to finish my graduation. As a person I am optimistic and enthusiastic.I want to bring change into this society and help others who are suffering from a similar disease as myself.
