My name is Taher Yusuf Merchant and I am raising funds for my 31-year-old son, Danish Merchant.
Danish was leading a regular life, working and trying to build a future for his wife of 2 years and taking care of his aging parents.
On 4th September, 2019, our lives turned upside down when Danish got his blood tested for a fever that was not settling and found that he was suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Futher testing revealed that he had FLT3 type of blood cancer which is extremely aggressive.
Immediate treatment started and he got admitted at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. He had his first round of chemotherapy until 6th October, 2019, for which we spent around Rs. 20 lakhs. Within 2 months after his discharge from the hospital, he had a relapse and thevsecond round of chemotherapy sessions began for which we spent around 26 lakhs (11th December to 17th Jan 2020).
Danish's doctors have now told us that he needs a Bone Marrow Transplant to give him a chance at survival.
The cost for the bone marrow transplant is estimated to be close to Rs. 40 lakhs and we have exhausted all our savings in his treatment so far.
We implore you to please help us in our time of need and donate on this fundraiser page and also share this message ahead so that more and more people can come forward and help Danish in his fight against cancer.
We are grateful for your help!
