Save Mihir w Bone Marrow Transplant

Life throws a curve ball at times and in this instance its not just one but three of them simultaneously.  Mihir is suffering from Thalassemia major ( a genetic blood disorder).  It does not really have a cure with general life span of13 years. However, with proper treatment, the life span can reach to 40-45 years.  Mihir has to undergo blood transfusion every month along with chelation medicines to remove the excessive iron build up in the body due to multiple transfusions. It is very sad to see the 6 year old kid being poked with needles for transfusion.
   Mihir's brother Rishab, in the picture below, 3 days before his departure, had Thalassemia major as well and passed away at the age of 13.   We were not able to do anything for him due to resource constraints. Also, Mihir's father had passed away when he was only a year old.
  Mihir's mother is struggling to survive with loans and creditors knocking at the door step.  She took the necessary loans to support the two terminal kids. The irony is that she has to see Mihir follow the path of the elder brother as terminal for the next 10 years and if we can give her some hope that he will live longer and healthier, it will be exhilirating.
  Mihir has a very mediocre life and is mobile for now but will deteriorate soon if not given proper medical treatment.
  I am Mihir's uncle and am supporting him but would like to reach out to see if I can get help from others and make Mihir's life more joyous and less painful in the years to come.  Can we  extend his life and give his mother hope?  I think we can by contributing a minimal amount and raising some funds.
  I have found some iron chelation medicines from Canada which are better and easier to use. However, they are expensive and these funds raised will help me get them a life long supply.
  Please help Mihir survive and thank you for reading this post.
  Below is Mihir, with his elder brother who has passed away due to the same dreadly blood disorder. Please help me in changing the fate of Mihir.
