7-Year-Old James is Battling Anemia, Needs Bone Marrow Transplant

More about the Fundraiser

7-year-old James Barthlomew is rapidly losing his health. He cannot walk and run around like other kids. Some days he bleeds blood from his mouth, gets dizzy and feels down. As the days go by, Leo and Daisy's worry for their son increases every day. Without an urgent bone marrow transplant they will lose their son as the disease has already taken over his body.

Couple of months back, James was happily going to school attending his 2nd std classes but all of sudden he got Jaundice. While diagnosing him the doctors found that his liver was severely damaged and there was a huge drop in his blood cells count and on further tests doctors confirmed that James was suffering with Aplastic anemia. This is a medical condition where his bone marrow shuts and stops producing new blood cells.

"My son keeps telling me. "Amma, I don't like being here, I want to go home, I want to play with my friends." I couldn't see my son bleeding blood and crying out of pain" - Mother Daisy

The kid has already undergone five blood transfusions in past 2-months-time and as blood transfusions are expensive, he cannot undergo lifelong blood transfusions, he needs immediate bone marrow transplant and his younger sister is likely to be bone marrow donor for her brother.

"I got stunned, when I came to know, what my son is going through and had to go through. I almost gave up as I knew the treatment would cost 12 Lakhs. Being a bus driver earning Rs.10,000 per month I am helpless." - Father Leo

James needs an urgent bone marrow transplant to stay alive. For months, Leo and Daisy spent their little savings and borrowed money to save their son. Any contribution made towards this fundraiser will help this family save their little son.
