I am Sangeeta Mitra and I grew up with RajNandini's dad Sanjeev Kumar in India. At a very young age, Sanjeev lost his dad and decided to support his mom as a teenager and started working. He was responsible as a security guard where I stayed and no matter what would happen, he would always smile and be happy. He has a heart of gold, helping others, and his kindness is contagious. He would buy candies for any kid or grown up on the street if they looked upset. His little act of love, would cheer even a stranger. I remember asking him as a teenager, why did he pass candies to others, he would laugh and say, "everybody loves candy, and everyone smiles after getting a free gift.' Being below poverty line, he didn't ever think about himself. He has been like a brother to me and I learned about selflessness from him. Today, seeing him in tears for his daughter, I have promised to help him and share his story with everyone. He is barely making minimum wage to support his family, his helplessness breaks my heart. This little girl wants to be a doctor someday to help kids like her, but her life is in danger now. Her parents have reached out to me for help and I want to reach out to all of you to help Sanjeev. It is about donating what you can to raise money for surgery, travel and post surgery medical expenses afterward. I know you all have a big heart and your donation, we can save her life. Sanjeev's trust in humanity and kindness is unshakable. Supporting him and RajNandini during this test will be a true gift for them. Every drop of water counts to make it an ocean. No matter how big or small your donation is you can save a life. I truly hope we can collect this money to save RajNandini's life. Please pass it on to other kind people you know who care. I will be happy to share all the medical papers if any of you need to see. I have all the documents with me. The surgery needs to take place in next month or so. So with the holiday of giving, please open your heart to this family. Together we can save a family!
(on behalf of Sanjeev Kumar)
