Save Rukmini Kishori dd!

Please support Rukmini Kishori (Rashmi Rathod) to recover from a rare brain disease "Cereballar Ataxia", a rare hereditary disease. The symptoms of the disease are not visible in the body till the age of 18 until which the patient appears normal.  The first symptom usually is loosing body balance and the patient starts walking hapazhardly. Slowly the speech slows down, swallowing food and water becomes difficult and the patient eventually loses the ability to walk or hold anything as there is no strength in any muscle of the body.  The average life span of such patients is ~ 37 years. Rukmini's condition is slowly detiorating and we need your help and support for her to recover. 

The latest possible remedy for this condition is the 'Stem Cell Therapy' where they transplant the bonemarrow. They inject the patient's own stem cells (after removing the cells from the patient's body and recycling it in the laboratory) through the spinal cord. Rukmini's doctors have also recommended various kinds of physiotherapies, speech and occupational therapies. 

The doctors have prescribed two stem cell therapies for Rukmini with the hope that it will improve the quality of her life by keeping her mobile and active and prevent the further damage of cerebellum. Each 'Stem cell therapy' costs around 1 Lakh INR. Further she needs funds to get the various therapies to regain her speech and mobility. She was the primary bread winner of the family but now as her condition is deteriorating she had to quit her job. Her sister is also affected with the same disease and is completely bedridden. Her aged mother is working as a nurse's assistant and earning some meager amount for the maintenance of the family.

Rukmini Kishori is a wonderful girl (only 25 years old) practicing Krsna consciousness in Mumbai, India under the able guidance of her guru, Srila Radhanath Swami. Your support can save this girl. Please help!
