I’m a throat cancer survivor. I had my larynx removed nearly 12 years ago by Dr Mohan Kameswaran. I have a 20-year-old daughter and a 13-year-old son. My wife passed away 2 years ago after suffering from acute Pulmonary Hypertension. I spent nearly Rs.40 lakh on her treatment hoping fervently that she would survive. But that was not to be. I was totally devoted to my wife and her demise was an irreparable loss to me. I was shattered and was totally depressed and down and out. I had spent my entire savings on my wife’s treatment.
Being a throat cancer survivor, I was able to speak only through an artificial prosthesis attached to my throat. This made it difficult for people to comprehend what I was trying to convey.
This in turn, affected my job prospects. I have been unemployed since my throat cancer surgery.
Why are funds required? The funds raised through this campaign will be utilized to complete my daughter Aishwraya’s education.
This fundraiser is for my daughter Aishwarya who is doing her 5 year integrated BBA + MBA course at the Gems B School in Bangalore. She is into her 3RD year and last semester of BBA at the college.
