Rupesh Dalwi, the 22-year-old elder brother of Mohit is suffering from a rare bone marrow disease which can only be treated with a bone marrow transplant.

The bone marrow of Rupesh is no longer producing white blood cells. He was being treated for a year at Global Hospital in Parel. He wasn’t responding to the treatment very well and doctors advised him to undergo a bone marrow transplant as that is the only viable option left.

The bone marrow of Mohit matches with his brother. However, the bone marrow transplant surgery costs approximately Rs 18 to 20 lakhs which the brothers cannot afford as they are economically challenged.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Bravery Award Winner, Mohit Dalvi, said, “We lost our parents at a young age. Ever since then, Rupesh is the only family I’ve ever had. My brother is suffering from a bone marrow disease since one year. Doctors have told us that he needs a bone marrow transplants. But we cannot afford the cost of this surgery as it is very expensive. Which is why we have turned to crowdfunding and have started seeking help from people.”

Rupesh Dalvi, who is suffering from the bone marrow condition, said, “I was not suffering from any ailments before. But my health started deteriorating last year and I underwent a few tests, after which I was diagnosed with a bone marrow disease, I was treated for a year but doctors found no improvement in my condition. And I was told that I would need to undergo a bone marrow transplant.”

He added, “My brother will donate his marrow to me. But this operation will cost around Rs 18 to 20 lakhs, which we cannot afford. So my brother has started a crowdfunding campaign for me.”

Apart from his brother Mohit, one of their mutual friends named Bipin Kokate is also doing his best to spread the word. So that they can gather the necessary funds needed for the operation.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Bipin said, “Mohit’s family is not financially stable and they cannot bear the expenses of the surgery. That is why we are crowdfunding for the surgery. Please donate whatever you can. Even a little amount of money will mean a lot to us.”

A doctor treating Mohit came forward to speak about the disease that he is suffering from. He wants to make people aware of this condition. Dr Akshay Shah, an Oncologist from Global Hospital, said, “This is not a genetic disorder, it can affect anyone. It generally affects younger people. Mohit’s bone marrow won’t function normally. He is not responding to treatment.”

He added, “A bone marrow transplant is his last chance for survival. We gave him injections but it wasn’t working. His brother is a likely candidate for bone marrow donation. We are running a few tests on it. The operation will help cure him.”
