Pardon me this week for writing this update a day later than scheduled.
Gaurav was discharged from the hospital last Monday 02-Feb. That was the day when the fourth round of Chemotherapy was initially scheduled to happen. This was postponed to 09-Feb. So, Gauarav was back to hospital this morning for his 4th round of Chemo. However, doctors have not yet begun administering the chemotherapy. They are waiting for the CT scan report to check the status of fungal infection in the lungs before taking further action.
On financial front, the students of Thakur Engineering college have done a fantastic job. They have swung into action, knowing their favourite Anuradha M’am needs help. We saw them collect tremendous contributions over last week. They have collected INR 10L (Approx US$ 22,000) in just one week. Our totals this weekend are little more than INR 70L (Approx US$ 155,000).
A part from this they have arranged media contacts. DNA published article about Anuradha and Gaurav on 07-Feb. Click HERE to read the DNA article. Hats off to the efforts from these students and their leader Hardik Semlani.
On Donor search, doctors have found 6 potential donors from NMDP (of the US) registry. They have shortlisted 3 potential donors and have requested further tests for these.
Stay tuned for more updates this weekend.
