Why am I fundraising?
Brother of a close friend of mine is diagnosed with blood cancer. His name is Adnan Shaikh . He is getting treated at the Ruby Hall Clinic in Pune. Adnan has completed his first round of chemo therapy. He was discharged from hospital a few days ago, and is currently in the three-month remission period. He is scheduled to undergo another round of chemo therapy in April. If the cancerous cells do not return, he will be taken for a bone marrow transplant. He is currently giving his SSC - 10th grade exams..
Hip Hop Dancers to help AdnanWe are organising a fundraiser on Adnan’s behalf with the help of Pankaj Mali, a hip hop dancer and a part of the StreetBeats Crew. A hip hop cypher is planned which will bring together all the hip hop dancers of the city and the proceeds from the show will go to Adnan's treatment.
How The Funds Will Be Utilized
We are collecting donations on my friends behalf to help him. His parents are from a lower middle class family and cannot afford the expenses. The family lives in the corporation area. Adnan’s father Asif and two elder sisters, Arshiya, 23 and Jasmine, 26. are the breadwinners who look after the running of the household. But the cost of Adnan’s treatment has made a huge and unforeseen dent in the Shaikh family finances, and they are finding it hard to cope, both on the financial front, and more so on the emotional front. Please do support us.
The funds will go towards Adnan's treatment
