Dear Supporters,

There is a good news that I would like to share with you today about  Upendra. We have found a bone marrow donor match. Currently, Pre Bone marrow transplant tests and standard treatments are going on for the Patient and Donor to stabilize their body condition.

The BMT process will start in few days. We are hoping that everything will be fine soon. Will keep you posted. 

We will be stopping the fundraising campaign as we have raised funds for Upendra's treatment from various sources. Thank you all for all the support and blessings. Please do pray for Upendra's health and speedy recovery.

Dear Friends,
It gives us a sense of some relief that the required amount of Rs 20L for Upendra's cancer care has been collected through contributions on various channels.

The total collected amount is Rs 20.5Lacs. IITs too have met their expected collection of Rs 30L today as informed to the Upendra's family.

It has indeed been a heart touching experience that so many people from Pantnagar, XIMB, IIT and others from the extended circles showered their care and commitment. The special humane gesture by Vineet Agarwal has been very reassuring for all of us.

Thus, as of now, the formal request for collection of funds towards treatment stands CLOSED. If you still wish to help Upendra, feel free to contribute. Kindly continue your best wishes for quick recovery of Upendra from his illness.
