Savior of 150 paddy varieties in India faces battle against cancer

You may not know him, but he has helped put food on your table and now he needs your help.

Saviour of 150 paddy varieties faces battle against cancer.

Mr.Jayaraman is an organic farming crusader, environmentalist and a farmer leader from Adirangam village, Tiruvarur Distt, He has revived 150 traditional paddy varieties over 10 years. Today,thanks to his efforts, 40,000 farmers have adopted organic cultivation of traditional rices.

Recipient of a number of awards and recognition, Jayaraman won the Best Organic Farmer Award in 2012 and 2013 from the Agriculture Department of the Government of TN. In 2013, he won the Best Genome Saviour Award of the National Innovation Foundation (NIF), which he received from The President of India.

Jayaraman is diagnosed with `malignant melanoma' (skin cancer) in January. Govt hospitals failed to treat him saying the cancer is in the advanced stage. But Apollo cancer foundation has come forward to treat him with immuno therapy which is his best chance of survival but this is an expensive protocol and is expected to cost at least 3.8 lakh per session and it need to happen for twice a month for a period of 8-12 months. At 51, he is a family man with a wife and a 11-year old son, this is an amount which he definitely can't afford on his own. We,his friends and associates, are seeking help for this indefatigable activist. We hope to bring him back to health. 

It's unfortunate that such a tireless activist is fighting for his survival and he needs minimum Rs 30 lakh for the treatment. I hope we as people don't let him down. Please pitch in with whatever you can Rs 10, Rs 100, Rs 1000 it doesn't matter. No contribution is small if we end up saving the life of this great man.

This is not a spam. Here below are some news articles on NelJayaraman’s battle with cancer. Hope we help him defeat this cruel disease.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for supporting Jayaraman in these tough times.

He was admitted in the hospital last month because his condition became worse. He has problem breathing and can't walk.

He has completed chemotherapy and the doctors say that he will be required to undergo radiation if necessary in the future. He might have to get admitted in the ICU if his condition doesn't get any better.

We are very grateful to you all and request you to please keep him in your prayers. Thank you all so much!

Thank you for your love and support.

Jayaraman has completed the 10th cycle of his chemotherapy. He takes medicines once a week. These medicines come from abroad and are very expensive. The doctors are planning to schedule radiation therapy for him.

He has become very weak physically. Please keep praying for him and his good health.
