3 year old Ayansh suffering from rare disease got the most expensive medicine, 65,000 people donated
National Desk: The world's most expensive drug 'Jolgensma' was given to a 3-year-old child suffering from a rare and life-threatening disease related to 'gene', Ayansh Gupta, at a private hospital in Hyderabad city with the money of a donation of 65,000 people. When Ayansh was one year old, he was diagnosed with a disease called 'Spinal Muscular Atrophy'. Ayansh's father Yogesh Gupta works in a private company here.
The doctors had said that Ayansh would not survive for more than three to four years, so he needed timely treatment. At first it seemed impossible to collect Rs 16 crore for a single dose of medicine but later the parents of the child decided to appeal on social media. In February this year, he had started a campaign to collect donations to save the life of his child.
