An alumnus (name not disclosed to save his privacy), 2002ETC, is severely ill. He is currently in Vellore and is hospitalised. He has been diagnosed to have Aplastic Anaemia.
The only possible treatments as suggested by the doctors are
1. Bone Marrow Transplant
2. Anti Thymocyte Globulin (ATG).
Since he is the only child of his parents, hence the first option has been ruled out.
As per the suggestions of the Doctors he will be treated by ATG. The cost of treatrment with ATG will come to INR 8 lacs or it may go higher in case of unforcing complication. He will be under hospitalisation for the next 3-4 months at Vellore. Although this treatment can make him cure at around 45-50% as per doctor's statement.
Not only does he require our blessings, he also requires our help. Please come forward with whatever we can donate to help his cause. Looking forward to your co-operation, suggestion and help. You please suggest how can we proceed to raise fund for him so that we can hand over some our contribution to his father's hand.

Beside this financial assistance another big problem has arised. The blood problem. He needs blood before, during and even after treatment. But blood bank will only give him blood from now onwards when they receive any other group's blood from anybody. It is not mandatory the blood group should be matched with hos blood group. But they only need any group's blood.
For this reason I again request you to find anybody who is nearer to Chennai or B'lore to go there as a blood donar. Bcause it will be little easier for those people who resides in Chennai or B'lore to go Vellore.
I'm giving you all the details of his in Vellore:
Christian Medical College(CMC) Hospital, Vellore-4.
Patient Name: <Removed>
Hospital Card No: 757852C
