Time is running out for this child. Register with DATRI to gift Akib a second chance at life. Two and a half years, Akib, is still waiting for his one in a million donor to step forward and help him. A Blood Stem Cell Transplant will help him survive and lead a near-normal life, but unfortunately, he has not found a matching donor.
He was diagnosed with Thalassemia Major at fourteen months, he is the youngest of three children. His father is a driver, and his mother is a homemaker. Akib’s father and Akib make a round trip of 100kms to get Akib a blood transfusion every two weeks. Sadly, he needs blood transfusions every 15 days, failing which he runs a high fever. His father is the sole earning member, finds it very difficult to run the family and take care of Akib‘s regular transfusions.
At a toddler’s age Akib has been experiencing all that comes as a nightmare to us as even adults. This is just one such story from the many who approach us for a blood stem cell transplant.
