About the Fundraiser

Meet Iram Shaikh ( Afreen). She  is a 25 year old,  BMS graduate from Claras College of commerce  living in Mumbai.

I have known Iram for over 5 years. She started her career as a make-up artist when she was 20 years old and I was one of her first clients. She is hardworking, dedicated and is the sole breadwinner of her family, which includes her parents, a younger brother  and sister. Her mother is a home-maker and her father is a retired TV production assistant.

Iram has recently  been diagnosed with severe aplastic anaemia, a condition in which the bone marrow production has stopped. Her family cannot afford her this treatment which will cost them around 30 lacs in total that includes a bone marrow transplant, medicines  and hospitalisation costs

For the bone marrow transplant, her younger sister (11 years) and her brohter , both  have given their samples for the HLA test to see if they can donate their bone marrow to Iram. Additionally, the medicines only cost around 1 lacs per month.

Save her life. 


I have attached Irams pharmacy bills today.

She has been taking these medicines which cost her Rs 13,000 for a 3 day course that amounts to Rs 1,30,000 per month.

She is required to take these medicines as a temporary relief. These tablets have a lot of side effects as it contains steroids.

The side effects include water retention where her body is bloated, mood swings, unbearable body pain, fair fall etc.

I urge all you well wishers and friends to please share her campaign page with everyone you know so that we are able to collect the necessary funds for a successful Bone Marrow transplant!

Please hope and pray for her speedy recovery.
