Help 12-Year-old Yuktha Fight Cancer

I am Prema. I am mother 2 beautiful kids. Yuktha is my elder daughter. She is 12 years old and studies at RT Nagar Public School. She bright student and wants to become a Doctor someday. 

On December 24th, Yuktha was running a mild fever but insisted on going to school as it was the last day before school closed for Christmas vacation. We thought it would be harmless to attend school for a few hours. Given her excitement, I could barely say no to her. But the next thing  I know,  we get a call from her Principal saying she has collapsed and they are rushing her to a hospital. I had sinking feeling this is more than routine fever. 

After running number of tests, it was confirmed Yuktha has an aggressive type of blood cancer. Doctors at HCG have assured us she can be completely cured with aggressive chemo sessions. But the treatment will cost us 15 lakhs. 

My husband works as a sales executive at a small wood cutting machinery company. He earns Rs. 12000 a month. The bills have already piled up to 11 lakhs INR. We have spent everything we have saved till date yet it is no where close to being enough.  We cannot give up on our daughter. Your support can save our daughter.

How Can You Help This Mother?

Yuktha needs chemotherapy sessions. The cost of treatment will be nearly 15 lakhs. Your contribution will help this mother save her daughter.  Funds collected will be transferred to the hospital upon receipt of invoices.

Dear Supporters,

I am Sudhakar, a Milaap Open fellow in Bengaluru. I spoke with Chandra Kumar, Yuktha’s father on 13th September. 

The 4th phase of chemotherapy session got over on 23rd Aug. The 4 phases of chemotherapy sessions should have gotten over in the month of June according to the original schedule. But, a infection in the urinary tract delayed the procedure by almost 2 months. 

Yuktha is currently on antibiotics and oral chemo medicines. The blood platelets count is yet to reach the desired level for the maintenance phase to start. She undergoes a blood test every 3 days. Doctors expect that the maintenance phase will start in a month’s time from now. The maintenance phase will include daily medication and monthly chemotherapy injections. It will last for 2 years and will get over in September 2018.

Yuktha will resume school once the maintenance phase starts. She is eager to join her school back. She got special permission from the school to take 7th standard exams in the last academic session. She will join the 8th standard whenever the doctor advises. 

Chandra Kumar says, “Milaap’s funds along with my savings ensured that my daughter gets the best treatment. Thanks to all the contributors for supporting my daughter and me in this time of need.” Let’s continue to pray for her so that she gets back to her school days as soon as possible.
