    This fundraiser will benefit

    Mahua P

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

My very close relative (like my elder sister), Mahua, was diagnosed for "Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Binet C (p53 mutation)" at the end of the year 2015. She received 3 cycles of Chemotherapy with FCR protocol from May to July 2016. She tolerated Chemotherapy well but then developed Cytopenia for which she has been getting PRBC and Platelets transfusion almost every other day.  Now her condition is very serious. Doctors have prescribed for "Ibrutinib" (140 mg) capsules (4 capsules per day) for a year which are very expensive ~ Rs. 18,00,000/- (Rupees Eighteen Lakhs only) (~ $28,000). After which they will consider Bone Marrow Transplant is required.

Mahua,  her husband and 14 years old daughter are bankrupt due to the medical expenses they have incurred so far. They are on the verge of selling the only house they have which is not enough to bare the expenses incurred and the future treatments. Hence this appeal for support from well meaning people all over the world to extend any help they can to support my sister Mahua.
