Story

Siddharthan Gopi Madhavan, or Siddan as he is fondly called, is head of a family of 4. Widowed, and with an ailing mother, he was a hard working laborer who toiled in the agricutural fields in central Kerala. Five months back, when he was working in the fields, he was shocked to find his dhothi drenched in blood. The local government doctor immediately sent him to Kottayam Medical college. He was diagnosed with second stage cancer of the rectum which has also affected his liver.

He has been undergoing chemotherapy once every 2 weeks. He has shown marginal improvement, but has been advised to undergo radiation along with chemo for a better outcome. Doctors are hopeful that a year-long agressive treatment will significantly improve his chances of survival. However, with their meagre resources and his inability to continue working, Sidharthan's family is finding it difficult even to pay for the cost of medicines which is around Rs.7,000/- for every round of chemo at the Government Medical College. All of his relatives are daily wage earners, so they are not in a position to help him financially. He is looking for support from kind hearted individuals to carry him through tis critical phase.

The well-wishers of Sidharth are trying to raise Rs. 2  Lakhs towards one year of treatment, and request your generous contributions.
