I-League 2017: Mohun Bagan players raise Rs 1 lakh to help club member's daughter fight rare disease

Arushi Das, all of three years, was suffering from a low white blood cell count, a condition that decreases the circulation of disease-fighting cells in one's blood.

Coming from a humble background, Das was at his wit's end to meet her medical expenses and that is when the likes of Bagan goalkeeper Shilton Paul, Equatoguinean defender Eduardo Ferreira and the entire team came to the rescue, collectively shelling out Rs 1 lakh.

A low white blood cell count, leukopenia, in adults is generally defined as fewer than 3,500 white blood cells per microliter of blood, while in children, it varies with age.

This rare problem is more often than not caused by anaemia and infection during dialysis.
