on behalf of Srujan Sriadibhatla
It is with a heavy heart that I write this message.  Our beloved Sriyam (son of Srujan & Shanti Sriadibhatla) has just been diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia (B acute lymphoblastic leukemia).  Srujan planned to go back to India as his work permit was getting over. He is not able to work legally and is on leave without pay. One week before his planned travel to India, his son Shriyam was diagnosed with leukemia. He must undergo extensive therapy. He is currently undergoing treatment at St Mary's Children's Hospital in West Palm Beach.

His white blood cells count is very low and needs blood transfusion twice a week so far. Chemotherapy treatment every Thursday. In case of any infections, he has to be rushed emergency in 1 hour. 

All funds raised will go toward his medical bills and living expenses.

Please help us reach our goal. 

Most importantly, please don't forget to pray for him.  God Bless!

Thank you,
Veda Rai & Friends

Sriyam started his next cycle this Friday - May 17th. He had his bone marrow and lumbar puncture done.

Same day he was on new chemo drug Methotrexate (MTX). This needs to be flushed out in 54 hrs by consuming lots of fluids. After 24 hrs MTX counts should be less than than 150. He was at 56.8 which is good.

After 42 hrs it should be 1.0, his counta were 0.69 which is good again.

After 48 hrs it should be less than 0.4. We will get to that count today after 5:00 pm.

After 56 hrs it should be less than 0.1 which again will be somewhere tonight.
