Help Rajul Misra fight Cancer

Hello friends,

My mother, Rajul Misra has been diagnosed with a recurrence of her Breast Cancer which she was treated for two years ago. She is 49 years old.



She has a tumor in her right lung that is causing her lot of discomfort.

I cannot afford the cost of her targeted therapy and specialized radiation which can help her get better and hopefully cancer free.
She is undergoing treatment at Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow,
Please help us by donating and sharing this with as many people as possible.
I will be eternally grateful for your help.

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted an update. It's because the infection which I had shared information about in my last update proved very persistent and tough to get rid of. Despite over two weeks of multiple IV antibiotics, the blood tests showed my mother still had the bacteria in her blood which had caused the infection. As long as she had the infection in her system, the doctor could not administer chemo, so as a circumvention or middle path the oncologist put her just on targeted therapy without the chemo till the infection  cleared. The port which was inserted in her chest two years ago to aid chemotherapy turned out to be infected and had to be removed. She has in the meantime removed two cycles of the targeted therapy in this time while battling the infection. She had grown  very weak with fevers and very low appetite. Thankfully now her condition is on the up and infection seems to have cleared, we will have to get a blood test soon to confirm. The next cycle at which doctor aims to restart the chemo will happen at the end of December, till then she gets to recover and recuperate.

This entire period has been extremely stressful and draining in every way mentally, physically emotionally and financially. The medicines and the targeted therapy are all prohibitively expensive which cost around 70000 per cycle. This has all been positive through the help and support of all the donors and people who have shared and spread the campaign. There is still a long way to go in the fight and the target is still a long way from being fulfilled.
I request each and everyone reading this update to please share the campaign in all your circles personal and professional and please donate if you can. Thank you all and a happy new year.

Hello everyone,

The doctor has started us on a new line chemotherapy to fight the disease (One chemo+two targeted therapy drugs) which is given every 21 days. The first dose was administered on the 7th of October.
But as luck would have it, 4 days later my mother already weak from the disease and the chemo started having terrible loose motions which did not stop for two days and rendered her completely restricted to the bed and needing physical assistance for any and all daily tasks.
She was admitted in emergency basis at a private hospital near my place which would admit patients without a negative covid report. She was kept in tbe isolation chamber (30000 a night) until her covid report came the next day which was negative.

The other reports were not good as her infection markers were off the charts and her BP was dropping. She was going into septic shock which can be fatal. She was shifted to the ICU where she was put on a heavy regimen of powerful antibiotics and antifungal medication. Thankfully in about 5 days there was improvement and she was shifted to a normal ward as her infection markers we're down and she was lucid and able to eat again.

She was discharged 2 days later but still had to receive antibiotic infusions at home for 5 more days. As she can't get these through her arm due to her breast surgeries, she had to have a central venous line put in which remained in situ even at home until the infusions continued.
The infection nearly had it's say but we were lucky that mom was able to fight through that despite being on chemo.

This hospital excursion (8 day stay) has really put us really back in the financial department. The entire cost of this was nearly 3Lakh. 3 lakhs which were supposed to be spent on her cancer medications.

I am at a loss of words for strangers' and friend's kindness on milaap.
I would request you all to kindly contribute if you can and share the campaign with your contacts and on social media, so that we can meet our target and have a fighting chance.

I am deeply indebted to everyone of you.

Hello everyone,

I would like to thank you all for your overwhelming support for the campaign these past few weeks. In this period, post the shocking discovery of disease progression in the last scan, we went to New Delhi to get targeted radiation for my mother's brain lesions. We decided to do it first as brain lesions increasing in size can lead to very difficult complications for the patient. It was a huge expenditure as we got radiotherapy in a private hospital in Delhi as that specialized radiation is not available in our govt hospital in Lucknow. It was extremely expensive and cost us over 4 Lakhs.

Now after returning we have been prescribed a chemo regimen in which my mom will be put on two targeted therapies in conjunction with a new chemo for fighting the disease. This is the option we are going for as we don't have funds to go for the standard treatment T-DM1 which costs about 4-5 Lakhs per cycle. If/When this line of treatment fails that will be our only line of treatment. We need all the help we can get. Its been extremely tough managing my new job with the travel to Delhi, staying in a hotel, daily trips to the hospital, etc. but all of this is extremely trivial compared to my mother's well-being.

I need all your help for getting to my campaign target. The money in the accumulated figure is mostly spent as the campaign has been ongoing since Jan 2019. Her medications will be extremely expensive with the current regimen costing us 90k-1L per cycle every  14 days.
 
I request you all to kindly share the campaign with all your contacts and on all your social media platforms so that we can get to our target. It is our only chance at fighting this disease. It is my sincere request to everyone. _/\_
