Preeja Prasad ByExpress News ServiceBENGALURU: Five-year-old Likhit B Reddy with a rare genetic condition is hoping to get a new lease of life after 5,500 people came together to raise funds for him online.
Likhit suffers from a disorder called LAD Type III & Glanzman Thrombasthenia, which makes him bleed profusely.
Earlier this week through Milaap, a crowdfunding platform, Rs 70 lakh was raised in 19 hours, which is Rs 20 lakh more than what was required for the bone-marrow transplant.
He hates the taste of it but is unable to understand what is happening to him,” Reddy added.
The surplus amount from the funds will be used for Likhit’s regular treatment and clear outstanding bills, if any.
