Ajmal, a 20-year-old boy, was diagnosed with Aplastic anaemia in 2013. Butterfly Cancer Care Foundation supported him with Rupees one lakh for carrying out bone marrow transplantation (BMT) at CMC Vellore. He had a speedy recovery after the BMT and he won first prize in a marathon at Calicut after 03 years of his BMT. This was a very special case where the uneducated mother had no clue about how to proceed with his treatment when doctors had varied opinions about the chances of success post-BMT. Butterfly’s moral support together with seed fund was critical to move the patient from the local hospital to CMC Vellore and complete the treatment. We are always proud and happy about our first case of BMT support which bought ayoung boy like Ajmal back to his wonderful life. He is currently pursuing BCA at Bangalore.
