Shivam Kokane
7-year-old Shivam Kokane, from Pune, is an incredibly cheerful child who adores outdoor activities. However, enjoying the outdoors has become a challenge for this young boy due to a rare and debilitating condition he faces. Shivam suffers from congenital erythropoietic porphyria, a rare blood disorder that makes him highly sensitive to sunlight, causing painful skin blisters and wounds.

Shivam’s dream of playing cricket, one of his favorite games, can only become a reality if he finds a matching blood stem cell donor. This is where we can make a difference in Shivam’s life by stepping forward to help him in his quest for a cure.

The boy’s father, Manoj Kokane, serves our country as a dedicated Jawan in the Army. He says, “I have been chosen to protect my nation, but here at home, I am faced with the challenge of helping my son overcome this health crisis.”

Let’s seize this opportunity to stand for Shivam and give him the gift of life. By registering as a blood stem cell donor with DATRI, you can make a significant difference in Shivam’s life and help him enjoy the simple joys of childhood once again.
