My name is Shakiba Mukadam and I am here to raise funds for my brother Afaq Anis Mukadam who is 20 years old.
Afaq Anis Mukadam lives in Ratnagiri, Maharashtra with his parents. He has done his graduation from BSC Biotechnology and currently seeking a suitable job. He is a passionate photographer and also enjoys cooking.
To make a living, his father is working as a fisherman. Afaq Anis Mukadam is suffering from Stomach and Pancreatic Cancer (Carcinoma of the Anteopyloric part of the stomach and head of the pancreas) from past few weeks.
He is receiving Chemotherapy at D Y Patil Hospital in Navi Mumbai but has not yet been admitted. To date (until now), we have spent about Rs.3,00,000 without starting any proper treatment yet. Being from a middle-class family, we have arranged amounts from savings, loans & selling assets. Now, we are still trying to get some money from our savings and relatives. But still arranging this huge amount of money is becoming very difficult for us. We need to start the treatment immediately, otherwise, the situation will not be under the control of any treatment. Once we arrange a reasonable amount of money, we can look forward to further treatment.
In the next few days, we need Rs.25 lakh more for Chemotherapy and further treatment. Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this crowdfunding fundraiser link with your friends and family.
"When the doctor broke the news of his relapse, we were devastated. It came as such a shock to us. He often consoles us by telling us to stop worrying and that he will be okay. I have to stop the tears from falling when I hear those words. I can't let him see me cry." - Nafisa (mother)
"Afaq always has a smile on his face and is very optimistic about the future - unlike us, who are overwhelmed with the fear of losing him, and the guilt of not being able to save him because of our financial shortcomings. He has become very weak & pale and suffers from unbearable pain & loss of appetite. His beautiful smile has been lost somewhere. Your smallest contribution will help us to bring this smile back to his face and help him to fight from Cancer." - Anis (father)
"We are doing everything possible with our whole heart & energy to save our brother. Afaq has been a warrior and he deserves your help to live a normal healthy life. As the amount required is huge, we request you to kindly contribute and spread this campaign as much as possible.
No matter how big or small, every contribution will count." - Shakiba (sister)
Any leftover money that isn’t needed will be donated to children’s cancer research to try and help other families embarking on this terrifying journey.
This fundraiser has been set up by Shakiba (Sister) on behalf of Afaq and his family. All funds are being sent directly to their account.
