Hi, my name is Thenul Amaratunga. In early June this year, my best friend Devshan was suddenly diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL Type B). He was treated in India and Sri Lanka with Chemotherapy for the last two months. 

Devshan Weerasekera is a 15-year old boy currently studying in Grade 11 at Royal College, Colombo. He has excelled in his studies as well as his extra-curricular activities. To name a few, he was a Primary Prefect in 2011, Junior Prefect in 2013, Vice-Captain of the Under 15 Hockey Team in 2016, Senior Scout and active member of the Media Club and several other clubs/societies. 

For complete cure of his cancer, doctors recommend a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT). This extensive treatment process is complex and lengthy. It has to be done under best standards to ensure success. Therefore his parents are keen to take him to an internationally reputed hospital where Paediatric BMT is performed with high success rate. 

Approximate cost of such treatment in Singapore is around 330,000AUD. Family and close friends alone will not be able to absorb this expense. Therefore, Devshan’s parents are reaching out to all other avenues to raise funds. Fundraising has to be done in a relatively short period of time to start the treatment soon. Your best possible contribution as soon as possible is highly appreciated to ensure recovery of another bright student of the college.

I set up this GoFundMe page up as I want to help my friend out. The money raised will be withdrawn by my parents and it will go directly to Devshan’s family.

If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone for taking time out of your day to read this. It would be great if you could share this with your family and friends.
