Support 23-Year-Old Joyjit In His Fight Against Cancer

Joyjit, or JJ as he's fondly called by all of us at work, is fighting cancer at the age of 23 years. And he has been for the past year. Now, he has 5 sessions of radiation and 10 sessions of chemotherapy ahead of him, and his family is in desperate need of funds so that his treatment can continue.

For most of last year, JJ was being treated at Max Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi. What was initially diagnosed as a Tennis Elbow, turned out to be a tumour. Since April 2016, he went through chemotherapy and repeated surgeries for his arm. And he was back at work by January 2017, while still on medication and meeting his doctors for follow-ups.

Last week, doctors said that the cancer was back and spreading fast. An emergency surgery was carried out to remove a tumour from his spine so that he could feel his legs again. But now, there's a lack of funds.

Each session of radiation costs Rs. 50,000 and a session of chemotherapy costs another Rs. 50,000. We're still waiting for funds so that his treatment can be taken forward.

To see our positive, ever-smiling friend in such a state is heart-wrenching. Your help in raising these funds for him will be invaluable not only to JJ and his family, but to all of us who have known him as a colleague or a friend.

Thank you for pitching in. Every bit counts.

Hello!

It's been a while since the last update about JJ's progress. Well, things are only getting better!

He's been undergoing radiation for his arm every day, and will continue doing so for the next 20 days. The swelling in his arm (where the first tumour was detected) has reduced and he's sketching again after many months. :) And of course, he's gaining more and more strength in his legs, which means he's inching closer to walking normally.

JJ's next Chemo session is scheduled for the 2nd of May. And in the mean time, he's keeping himself busy by picking up new books to read.

Once again, thank you for keeping JJ in your thoughts and prayers.
