Aadvik Patro

Latest Update


Dear Donors,

Story


“My son is the happiest child you could meet. He loves playing with crayons and paints. His laughter is so musical. Everyone falls in love with Aadvik when they first meet him.”
Ashwin Patro

Misfortune compounds tragedy
Sadly, 15 months ago, Aadvik began experiencing fatigue and high fever. He started appearing lifeless. Gradually, his eating patterns got irregular. His worried parents rushed him to a diagnostic center and got his blood tested. Since then doctors have been doing PRBC(Packed red blood cell) transfusion every 20-30 days, as an interim procedure to save Aadvik.

“We discovered that Aadvik is born with a genetic blood disorder called thalassemia major. The doctors suggested that only a bone-marrow-transplant will provide a permanent solution. We were told that there is a high likelihood of a sibling being an exact match. But Aadvik was our only son then. So we planned for a second child. Our second baby Priyasu was born last year, but unfortunately, Aadvik and Priyasu’s HLA did not match.”
Ashwin Patro

Luck was on our side...
Thankfully, due to the progress in medical science, doctors have stated that Aadvik’s parents are a haploidentical match. It means that Aadvik’s damaged blood cells can be replaced with those of his parents’ stem cells, though the procedure is complicated and risky.

“It was such a relief to know that there was a good chance for him to recover! Soon, Aadvik will receive a transplant from either one of us and lead a life of fulfillment.”
Aadvik’s mother

Financial crunch
Ashwin Patro, in the last 15 months has already spent all his savings on Aadvik’s diagnosis and treatment. He is sustaining his family, and paying for his son’s treatment and is now hard pressed for funds.

“When Aadvik was born, all we wanted was to watch him grow up like any normal child. He was so sharp for his age, that his father calls him ‘little Ein’ (Einstein). We never imagined that he’d be making multiple visits to the hospital and diagnostic centers. But we know that Aadvik will soon be okay and grow up like any other young boy.”
Aadvik’s mother

How You Can Help
The Patro family requires Rs 45 Lakh for 3-year-old Aadvik’s bone marrow transplant and post-operative care. Your generous donation will help Aadvik get closer to recovery.
Please share 3-year-old Aadvik’s story with your friends and family so that others may also contribute to this life-saving cause.

I am grateful to you for your support and your contributions. But it has not been enough, he still need your prayers. My son has been strong enough to go through cycles of chemotherapy, but he need more cycles to go through on regular basis. He is on medication. All of this will not be possible if the hospital does not get the required fees. My son means the world to me, and I promise you, we will support him in all his dreams. We will ensure he gets the best possible education.We will keep you updated. Request you to support and donate. Please do share with your friends and family.

Yours Sincerely,

Ashwin.

Dear Supporters,

We would like to thank all you kind-hearted people for donating generously for baby Advik's treatment.He underwent his first chemotherapy session and his second chemotherapy is scheduled at 14th August. Doctors has advised to go for bone marrow transplant since transplant is the only hope,but we are in lack of funds. The hospital expense is increasing day by day and we are helpless in financial aspects and are dependent on external help. Request you to support and donate so we can reach the goal amount to make Advik smile again. Please do share with your friends and family, you make the difference for us.

Regards,

Ashwin.
