I had been treated at Tata Memorial Hospital at Parel, Mumbai and completed the course of treatment i.e. chemotherapy and at present just waiting for further surgery for artificial implantation. Now from this October 2016. I am waiting for a surgery in the right femur.TMH Doctor said operation is required at the earliest on the same femur and the cost of implant with surgery is 5.8 lakhs, which I cannot bear at all.

I am working in a stationary shop at my native place,Balasore, Odisha and earned Rs1500/-p.m.I have two brothers and two sisters. They study in college and my family depends on agriculture. I have a very poor financial condition and my family could not bear any amount for this operation. Already my family has lost everything for my previous treatment and follow ups. At present I am staying at Vashi Gaon, Navi Mumbai

Dear Supporters,

In 2012, Avinna Kumar had undergone an implant called the Total Knee Replacement (TKR). Fighting bone cancer for several years now, he still has not healed completely. After rounds of chemotherapy sessions since last year October, he successfully underwent his second surgery for bone implant of right femur (artificial) at Tata Memorial Hospital, Lower Parel on March 12th 2017.

The doctor has advised him to be regular with his physiotherapy. He is expected to visit the hospital every day for the same. However, it is difficult for Avinna to travel daily.
“I stay in Vashi, Navi Mumbai with my mother. Travelling to Lower Parel regularly is problematic for me because I cannot bear the finances of commuting every day. I need clutches for support and in this situation using public transport is very inconvenient. So thrice a week I go to TMH, Parel. On other days, a physiotherapist from a nearby trust makes a visit to my place,” says Avinna. Mobilizing comfortably is a struggle for him. On Friday, April 14th, he has an appointment with a skin doctor at TMH.

The cost of surgery for bone implant at TMH was INR 550,000. Cost for medicines, travel and physiotherapy are additional. An estimated amount of INR 80000 will be incurred for his treatment further. He will undergo a test called ESR CRP test. Based on the test reports, the doctor will observe and thereby provide an approx. duration for Avinna’s treatment.

As he suffered a severe financial load, he knocked the doors of several organizations. He received INR 10000 from Vasanth Memorial Trust, INR 300,000 from an NGO called the Indian Cancer Society and INR 10000 from PD Hinduja Hospital. He is extremely grateful to all you donors for extending your generous support at the time of need. However, he continues to face financial hardships as all his bills are not yet cleared. Also, he faces difficulty in commuting for his physiotherapy, due to which he skips it often. It will be a huge help if you can share his campaign in your network of friends and family.

Thank you!
