Eshton is 3 years old and he has a disease called Thalassemia, it is an inherited blood disorder characterized by fewer red blood cells and less haemoglobin in the body than normal.
The only treatment in Papua New Guinea is blood transfusion which he receives regularly. He requires a bone marrow transplant which isnt available in the country
Help Eshton receive this lifesaving treatment and allow him to live a normal life
With the intent to save little Eshton, we went to Port Moresby in 2019 from Madang and we visited Pacific International Hospital for consultation and tests for Eshton’s disease. After going through five tests he was recommended to receive Bone Marrow Transplant in India by the Paediatrician consultant Dr.Anil Dama from India. However we can’t afford the cost of the treatment in India as it costs about US$81 000.00 which in our currency when converted using the currency exchange rate will be about K333,000.00 plus.
As Eshton’s parents we believe Eshton will be normal again if he receives this treatment of Bone Marrow Transplant in India through testimonies of such treatments of patients having the similar disease who underwent this medical treatment and are living a normal life.
We have been warned not to bare any more children as they will be at risk of inheriting the same disease thus we can’t bear to lose our only son through this disease. We lost our elder son named Jedidiah through the very same disease in 2016.
We now kindly appeal for help to save our little boy.
Thank you all and God bless
