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.
