Sankalp Program for Thalassemia Cure
Sukrana Two years back, in the first few day of March, Sukrana received her bone marrow transplantation at South East Asia Institute of Thalaasemia Jaipur. It was the first transplant supported by Sankalp India Foundation and the beginning of a journey towards cure from the disease.
A clinical trial is an important element of research in the field of medicine and science. Before any treatment protocol, or medicine or any practice related to the patient is brought into mainstream practice, it is essential that the trials have proved it's impact.
It was an incredible experience working in the Bone Marrow Transplant unit of People Tree Hospital -Sankalp collaboration. I absolutely fell in love with the meticulous nature and detailed organization in the system. It gives an opportunity to the physicians to remotely monitor patients with able assistance from the nurses.
We read somewhere - "Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other." Anushree personified it.
Bone marrow transplantation is becoming an increasingly acceptable curative option for patients suffering from thalassemia. This coincides with improved access to care and management of thalassemia.
