Help save Aparajita
October 04, 2004 17:33 IST
Aparajita Bhatia, 32, suffers from a rare blood disorder with factor X deficiency and active hepatitis C infection.
Her continued treatment over the last 14 years has depleted her family's modest financial means.
Her current treatment at New Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences involves regular blood transfusion at a cost of Rs 50,000 per month for at least a year.
What has compounded matters is that her father has had to take premature retirement since he is suffering from terminal stage IV cancer.
Aparajita needs financial assistance and appeals for help on humanitarian grounds.
Cheques payable to 'The Director, AIIMS' may be sent directly to her at D-5A, Single Storey, Vijay Nagar, Delhi 110009.
