Hi my name is Dasharth and I am raising funds for my friend Shashank Keerthi who is suffering from Myelodysplastic Syndrome-RAEB-2 and is currently under treatment. He has used up all his savings in the current treatment and and went through a allogeneic stem cell transplant in April which did not help him to cure it completely. He is undergoing blood transfusions every month with the help of PKC Foundation. Now doctors advised to do bone marrow transplant. I need help from everyone of you who is reading this to gather funds of Rs. 25,00,000 which would help him undergo the advised treatment. Alone it would be a huge burden for him but if we all stand by him he would be able to fight the cancer and the condition that he is facing, request all to be generous and help out!!
