    This fundraiser will benefit

    Tapan Patra

    from Bangalore, Karnataka

"She was in school that day when it happened. Spasms in her right hand, scaring her half to death. Shreyasee’s friends told the teacher, and they called us. We rushed there to take her to the doctor. This was the second time. Something was obviously wrong. We never thought it would be a tumor."

 About a month ago, she began having unexplained spasms and tingling sensation in her right hand. When the feeling spread to her leg, her father rushed her to the hospital where she was diagnosed with brain tumor. Although she was operated, Shreyasee’s tumor turned out to be cancerous, and she needs chemotherapy as well as a stem cell transplant to beat the disease.
Her family travelled from West Bengal to Bangalore in search of a cure

For daily-wage farmers, Gautam and Neetu Patra, their daughter’s illness came as a shock. They did not know how to react when she complained of twitching and spasms in her right hand one day. Hoping it would fade away, they advised her to rest. When it happened again, they rushed to a hospital. The doctor suggested a CT scan of the brain, which confirmed a brain tumor.
“We were referred to Bangalore, so we came here and had to go through many tests. We did not know how much all this would cost, and what she needed. Everyone in my family, sold their tiny bits of land. With about Rs. 1.5 lakhs, we admitted her to the hospital. Scans showed she had a brain tumor. She was immediately operated on, but a biopsy of the tumor showed that it was cancer.”

The total cost of chemotherapy is 1400000 but unfortunately, Shreyasee's parents are unable to afford the cost of the surgery and need our help to raise funds.Your contribution can help Shreyasee get the treatment she deserves.
