Bone marrow transplants for Thalassemia patients

Diagnosed with Thalassaemia Major Class – III

Dhanush’s father, Mr. B. Durai, a police man of Sai Baba Colony B11 Police station, Coimbatore was heart broken when his son, Dhanush was diagnosed to have THALASSAEMIA MAJOR in Sept 2003 at 5 months of age. Since then he had been on regular blood transfusions twice a month.

Dhanush’s life was in danger, but a very expensive BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT COULD SAVE HIS LIFE. But being a normal salaried police man, Mr. Durai could not dream to afford this operation to save his son’s life. When our Care and Share Heart foundation, MERRYLAND CARES, came to know about this poor father’s helplessness, caring hands extended to provide the expenses to meet with the BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT SURGERY. With blessings from Mrs. George, our founder and prayers from Merryland, the Surgery was completed successfully in Kovai Medical Center. Now, Dhanush is healthy and happy. Dhanush and his father Mr. B. Durai, along with his family joins MERRYLAND to thank God Almighty.
