I am fundraising for my father's treatment.

Why am I fundraising?

Dear Friends,

I hope this message reaches you and that I am able to convey my concerns to you. My Father Eswara Reddy Majjiga (62years) who did free service as Lawyer for a span of 25 years is currently undergoing treatment for Renal Cell Carcinoma (kidney cancer) in Sri Shankara cancer hospital ,Bangalore .

I belong to a middle class family. For me to complete my education was a big financial challenge that is when I saw my father's health getting worst day by day. Initially the local doctors asked us to visit Manipal Hospital, Bangalore as the disease seems like cancer . Almost we spent one Lakh rupees in Manipal and confirmed it as cancer. we are scared of his life and worried my financial situation shouldn't be a hindrance to his treatment. As my father is in Free public service for a span of 25 years we don't have enough financial strength to face the treatment now.

When discussed this with my friends, my company HR told me to rise funds through Milaap and refer it to my friends and colleagues.

The estimation for the chemotherapy is attached

Dear Supporters,

We are deeply saddened to inform you that despite best efforts Eswara Reddy Majjiga expired on June 10, 2016. After the cancer treatment and chemotherapy, he had become very weak. He fell down from his bed one night when he was asleep. This caused a fracture in his leg. After the procedure in the hospital to repair the fracture he passed away. Supporters like you came together to raise Rs 9.2 lakhs that afforded his the treatment and medicines that made his last few days comfortable. May his soul rest in peace and strength be with his family.

Dear Supporters,
I am Vishnu Rao, a Milaap Open fellow from Bangalore. I spoke with Tharakanadha Reddy a couple of days ago, and he gave me an update on his father's health condition along with a heartwarming message to all the donors. 
Firstly, he feels wistful about the fact that his father’s cancer is not curable. He finds it  difficult to digest and it has taken him time to come to terms with this unfortunate reality. All efforts now, medical or therapeutic, can only help in enhancing his level of comfort and mitigating his pain and suffering as much as possible. 
Doctors have advised the use of the medicine Sutent for this purpose. His father right now follows a regimen of Sutent for a few weeks interspersed with  usual  chemotherapy sessions. Though helpful in relieving pain, excessive usage of Sutent has many side effects on the body and can aggravate any other existing conditions or ailments. 
Accordingly, doctors have taken the decision to alternate between usual chemotherapy and the Sutent tablet. A silver lining here is that the medication has helped improve his father’s mood and day-to-day well-being. Only obstacle here is that the medicine costs Rs. 54,000 for each dosage. 
Tharakanadha has already spent more than Rs. 15 Lakhs on treatment so far, and he is finding it difficult to manage the swelling costs. His friends in the USA are currently supporting him monetarily in covering the treatment costs. He is extremely thankful to all the donors on Milaap and is indebted to them for helping him at a very testing time in his life.
