Mahesweta (lovingly called as Riki) is a 2nd year law student of Utkal University. She is 18 years old and suffering from a rare disease BPDCN (Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm).
It is a type of acute lymphoma or blood cancer. In the past 4 years only 11 such cases were witnessed in India. And she is the first such case in her age group, that even doctor can't follow a specific guideline for her treatment.
She is a simple girl living a normal life with her family with lots of dreams and passion for becoming a lawyer from her childhood, but now she can't even think of completing her graduation.
Now her chemo therapy is going on. As per the doctors her bone marrow is producing an abnormal amount of WBC resulting in significant deficit of RBC and cancer cells has been activated, so there is a dangerous risk to her life.
As a last resort she needs a bone marrow transplant after chemo therapy for 2 months. Her treatment is going on at TATA MEDICAL CENTER, Kolkata and the cost estimation is around INR 25,00,000/-.
She is my younger sister and we belong to a normal middle class family and it would be very difficult for us to arrange such a big amount within a short period of time.
We need your help and support to bring back a normal life to her. Your small support can bring hopes and confidence for her to fight against the Blood Cancer.
