Ladybug House - building Washington's first family-centered respite care home for children, adolescents and young adults with life-threatening illnesses.
"If we cannot add days to the life of a child, we will add life to their days"
As a nonprofit, Ladybug House will offer intermittent stays to families who are caring for their children with life-threatening illnesses so they can have time for rest and quality time together. Ladybug House will have two options for stay: one for the entire family and the other for the child to stay solo. Ladybug House will be an option beyond the hospital or home environment for end-of-life care offering an extra layer of support. Ladybug House will consist of an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, specially trained pediatric staff, and volunteers who provide 24/7 loving care and support. This care will be provided with no out of pocket cost to the family. Check out here for more information about Ladybug House
- ($20,000) Urgent help for a 16 year old girl suffering from acute myeloid leukemia (Our original target was $10,000, but as the girl is being moved to Vellore Hospital on 9/27 Sunday and as she needs a Bone Marrow Transplant as well, the total needed to support her is over 15 lakhs)

Urgent help for a 16-year-old girl suffering from acute myeloid leukemia
Megha is the youngest daughter of a clerical worker in the sales department of a distributor based in Ernakulam. She showed the symptoms of chronic coughs and on further evaluations, she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia - a form of blood cancer. For the first phase of the treatments, the estimated expenses are around Rs 10 lakhs (~$15,000). Chemotherapy has been started. Further tests are done, and its likely that she may have to go through bone marrow transplant. If thats required expenses would go up to Rs 25 lakhs (~$35,000). We are trying to help the family with the first phase of the treatment. With the savings family have, and with the local fundraising they have almost around Rs 3 lakhs. Through this fundraiser we are trying to find the remaining Rs 7 lakhs ($10,000).
Update Sept 18, 2020:
With the new test results, Megha needs to go through bone marrow transplant. Luckily her father has been identified as a perfect donor match. Bone marrow process pushes the total cost to Rs 22 - 25 lakhs (~$30,000). Another result is awaited from a lab in Delhi. We will have the new treatment estimate from the doctor once this result is available around Sept 22nd
What’s the plan to transfer the funds?
