In January 2018, Saraswati started experiencing back pain. Initially, She and her parents thought it to be a normal pain. But after few days, when pain continued, she was admitted to a nearby hospital. She was soon diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and was shifted to Shushrusha Citizen’s Co-operative Hospital, Mumbai – 400028 for higher treatment. Unfortunately, because of her weakened immune system, the hospital shifted her to a single room, so that she doesn’t catch anything from another patient. Till now, around 6 lakhs rupees has been spent by her parents.
As the blood cancer has been diagnosed in the early stage, the doctors are assuring a complete recovery, given proper timely treatment is provided to her. Doctors are estimating a cost of another 12 lakhs for chemotherapy for next 6 months and after that She needs to take medicines for next two years, if everything goes well. So overall cost may exceed above 25 lakhs.
Saraswati is a kind and humble person and a great friend. She wears a smile and maintains a positive attitude towards life. She comes from a very simple family of modest means from Bihar. The costs of chemotherapy and other expenses has put tremendous financial strain on the family. They needs all our support in their time of unimaginable hardship.
We hope that we can help Saraswati and her family to some extent through these efforts. Her condition is critical and every single penny counts. Kindly donate and pass this on to everyone you know who can help so that we can reach and possibly cross our 25 lakhs rupees target. Our strength lies in how many people come forward to donate.
Thanks so much for your time!
