Save my 13-Year-Old From Cancer

Why I Am Fundraising?

My name is Patha Ghosh. My 13 year old son is suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Few months ago he started falling ill and we took him to various hospitals to find out the reason for his continuous fever and back pain. Finally, the doctors advised us to undergo a test and we were shocked to fiind out he is suffering from cancer. We had to stop his studies as he had to be admitted in the hospital. I don't have a permanent job and did any job that came my way. I worked as a driver for some years. I don't have much savings and my son's treatment is now supported by my friends. He is undergoing treatment at Apollo Specialty Hospital, Chennai. 

I have set up this campaign with the hope of receiving support to continue my son's treatment. We need 10 lakhs to complete his chemotherapy cycles and supportive care. He is getting treatment as an out patient. We managed to find a small place near the hospital for rent. We are unable to manage the rent and the treatment expenses. Any support at this time will be of great help.

How Will The Funds Be Utilized

Funds collected through this campaign will be transferred to Apollo to support the treatment expenses. I have attached the estimation letter from the hospital below.

Dear Supporters,

We have very good news to share with you. Siddhartha is recovering very well and his parents are excited to share their happiness with all of you. “Though there’s trouble in getting him to eat, he’s become very active and has started going to school even” says his father. He’s pursuing grade nine in schooling currently.

Here’s a recent photo of him,
He visits Chennai once every three months for check-up. His next check-up has been scheduled in May to suit his school timetable.

All of this joy and happiness in seeing Siddhartha recover healthily has been made possible with the help of your support.
