In Memory Of George Dixon

2017 didn't exactly start off on a positive note for Harry and his family. Harry is the Security Head at our office building - the elderly gentleman that greets you with a 'Good Morning Beti' every day when you enter the office premises.

January 2017, Harry's 29-year-old son George was diagnosed with Cancer. It came as a rude shock to all of us in office to learn of Harry's son's health.

George has so far completed 3 cycles of Chemo, 4th one going on. The family has spent almost 15 Lacs so far for Chemo & supportive care. While he has been responding to medication and treatments well, Doctors have now confirmed that George will need a Bone Marrow Transplant. The BMT alone will cost him 16 lacs in addition to the 4th cycle of Chemo and supportive care charges of another 5 Lacs.

George continues to remain employed and his employer has kindly extended his medical insurance from 3 Lacs to 10 Lacs, 95% of which has already been utilised. If George gets through with this treatment, which I am positive he will,  he stands a very good chance at going back to leading a normal life. The price he will pay for it - 20 Lacs INR!!

A lower middle-class family of 5 (4 adults & 1 infant - yes, George also has a cute 3-months old daughter!:)) with 2 earning members bringing in an income of roughly 30K per month. Add to that a medical condition that not only tests your physical strength, mental resilience but also is a financial black-hole. Let alone empathise, most of us cannot even begin to feel the difficult times that the family is tiding through.

For just Harry & George to do this would be super-human efforts. For those of us that care, while we cannot share in George's pain (physical & emotional), we can surely be of support financially and morally. And this is the platform for you to extend your helping hand and show that you care.
So, go on, open up your heart and be generous. Let us help George and his family get back their lives and enjoy a normal living like you & I do.

Thank you for being generous, thank you for being human!

Love & Light,
Divya

George passed away. The past few months have been daunting for Harry uncle and his family. From multiple rounds of chemo and blood infections, George was in pain. It was eventually pneumonia which took his life. It was devastating to watch Harry uncle and his wife mourn the loss of their 31 year old son. The son whose memories would haunt them day and night. The son whom they raised with a lot of love and care.

Their tiny family of 6 has undergone a lot of turmoil. George was said to be a family man, extremely intelligent, kind and an empathetic soul. Which he got from his father. Harry uncle is one of the strongest human beings that I have ever met!! His strength and grace inspires me.The parents did everything that they could to save their little boy. This 70 year old man showed up to work 12 hour shifts. Never have I seen him lose his temper.

The family still owes 60 k to HCG hospital in the form of dues. A humble request to each one of you to open your hearts and help the family one last time during this painful time. Requesting you to share

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for all the support you have shown George. George successfully went through the Bone Marrow Transplant about a month ago. But as we all know, the post-BMT phase, as expected, has been the most tricky and testing part. George has had to cope with several side effects ranging from Severe Ulcers in the digestive system to urinary tract infections. The journey has been quite arduous for him. Not to mention the ever-rising bill amounts.

We thank George's supporters and well-wishers for their continued support.

We have thus far raised, 3L INR and started a parallel support campaign to continue raising funds. We request all the supporters visiting this link to continue contributing in cash and kind. We also welcome any leads/contacts for NGOs and other philanthropic institutes that would help George and his family bear the pressure of this journey.

Love & Light,
