Master A. Rufus was a seemingly healthy child when he was born. When he turned 10 years old, he had diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and had fought with cancer already. But again he relapses with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). It is a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow with excess immature white blood cells.
The doctors are generous enough to start his treatment of Haplo-identical Transplant (BMT) in which his father is going to be a donor. The cost estimated for his treatment is Rs. 18, 00, 000/- (Eighteen Lakhs Only); but parents are challenged financially.
Mr. A. Venkateshwar Rao (Father) is a farmer at Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, who grows vegetable and paddy to look after his family. He is the sole breadwinner of his family. Unfortunately, his crops failed last year and the family has been surviving on borrowed money since then. He sold his house, took loans from other farmers and also applied for CM funds, but failed. They also approached various fund facilitation but left disappointed to get providing financial assistance.
