Help Apong to fight Cancer

Dear people,

This fundraiser is for Apong Longchari. He is my friend and senior. He is a native of Nagaland, India. He is an extremely talented person with great interest in music and cooking. Unfortunately, destiny has struck him with stage 4 cancer. Until now his friends and family have been fighting cancer and beating it every day by keeping that smile and regular life around him. However, just like any other middle-class family in India, they are running out of money. Friends and families are helping as much as they can but the time has come when a bigger fund has to be raised to help him.

The funds you contribute will directly be deposited to Apong's bank account and will be used for his treatment.

On behalf of all the well-wishers of Apong, I would like to thank you in advance for helping Apong and his family fight cancer.

God bless!

Dear supporters,
We thank you for your support.

Here is an update on Apong's health -

Apong has been undergoing chemotherapy since last month.
There were some minute side-effects but he's responding well to the treatment.
Since the cancer has spread in is lungs, doctors have suggested that he will undergo chemotherapy till the end of this month and after that, they will do a PET scan which may be followed by radiation depending upon the scan reports.

His salary will be stopped in the coming months and there will be no source of income for him and his family. He will be withdrawing funds to settle the treatments bills up till now  but he needs your support more than ever, please share this campaign with your family and friends.

Thank you all for your contributions.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks a lot for your generous contribution. People like you make a this place a better place. I am sharing quick updates on Apong's treatment and his health overall.

Update on Apong's Health
Unfortunately, I don't have much promising update. Over last couple of weeks he has been undergoing the Chemo treatment. His cancer slipped from Stage 3 to Stage 4 just before I started this campaign. This might give you an idea that the cancer is spreading and has reached his lungs. This is roughly what he is going through as far his health is concerned.

Update on financial status 
Every Saturday he has to pay Rs.75,000 to the hospital for his medication. Actually, this is kind of number that he has been spending the last couple of months. He has enough funds for next 2 weeks. Therefore, we have decided to withdraw some amount from this campaign so that it can last for 2 or 3 weeks more.

Update on his Family
His family is going thru a lot as you might expect. His wife is staying strong. We are in constant touch with her over the phone. Couple of friends of NITK have been visiting Apong to ensure his family gets all the support they need. As the expenses are growing his family is deciding whether to stick to Vellore CMC or go back to Dimapur where at least the home rent and other miscellaneous expenses are affordable compared to Vellore.

I have added pictures of his medical bills from CMC so that you are posted on the status and kind of expense involved.

I request each one of you to share with as many people you can so that we can raise some more funds.

Thanks a lot to you. God Bless.
