The following appeal has been translated from Hindi to English on behalf of Samir Maity (father of Sayani)
Why Am I Fundraising?
My name is Samir Maity and I live in a small village in West Bengal. It was only two months back that I came to know that my younger daughter who is 5 months old now is suffering from cancer. When we heard from a local doctor that the treatment cost will be high, we didn't have an option but to take her home thinking it is her fate. But as a father you can't give up like that. My wife and I decided to find some way to treat my daughter. I work in a small shop and my wife is not working. I have an elder daughter who is 4 years old. With the help of my friends and relatives, I have managed to pay for her treatment till now. Referred by doctors at our place, we brought her to Apollo Hospital In Chennai. Sayani needs to undergo a bone marrow transplant to cure her cancer.
We stay at a small place near the hospital. Doctors at Apollo have arranged for a matching cord blood unit from US for Sayani's treatment. We are lucky to have received this. Now all that is left is funds for the treatment. The estimation given for the treatment is Rs 30 lakhs. The letter is attached below. The only way to save my daughter is by your support.
Please make a donation and support us.
How You Can Help This Father
Sayani needs to undergo a bone marrow transplant immediately. The cost of her cord blood unit from the US is in itself nearly 10 lakhs. Your contribution will help this father save his daughter. Funds collected will be transferred to the hospital upon receipt of invoices.
