I hope everyone is safe and doing well.
This is Jai here. Myself, Suraj Vadhul, Gopal Koushik, Abinaya Selvalakshmi, and our friends are raising funds for my uncle's family (Mr. Singaravel, who died a few days ago (23/12/2020) due to Carcinoma Unknown (Lungs & Liver mass) stage4 Cancer at the age of 39)! The funds raised will be used to support his family's day to day expenses, raise his kids, and support their education.
Singaravel was one of the most hard-working and noblest human beings I've come across and have admired in my life. Being an elder male child in our family, he took care of all of his siblings (4 Sisters & 3 Brothers) and supported them with their education, marriage, and other expenses. He had to sacrifice his studies and take up a daily wage job at a very early age to compensate for his familial needs. He started his career as a helper in the construction industry and then gradually moved up to be a Mason. Through his work ethic, he was able to support his family's basic needs. He got married to my cousin sister and has left behind two wonderful male kids (5th and 8th grade) whose future is uncertain now. As it took him a great deal to support his siblings and his family alike on a day to day basis, there wasn't much he could save for his offsprings or his wife then. Despite his financial circumstances, his willingness to support my educational and personal needs after my father passed away in 2008 is something I can never forget and that is one of the main reasons why I would want to give back to his children and for that, I would also need your assistance.
Singaravel was the sole breadwinner of his family to raise his kids and support his siblings. He was expected to be a building contractor in a few years through his years of grit, resilience, and hard work, but unfortunately fell very sick a few months ago with blocks and swelling in his right-hand shoulder. After consulting a few doctors, he was sent for a CT scan to identify the cause, which unfortunately confirmed that my uncle was in his final stages of cancer. We had admitted him to CMC Vellore initially for initial diagnosis but had then moved him to Chennai Adyar Cancer institute for further treatment. A few weeks after his admission, the condition worsened significantly, and the tumor cells started spreading to his backbone, lungs, and liver. The doctors had then discharged him as his body wasn't cooperating with any further chemotherapy or other treatment plans. He passed away within a few days at home town, making it an irreparable loss to the whole family.
Singaravel was the sole breadwinner of his family. Working in the construction industry as a mason was his only source of income. Coming from a needy family with very little external support, his wife and kids' future is very much in a state of uncertainty. His siblings don't have the means to support them, and hence I/we would require your much-needed assistance.
Why this fundraiser:
At this time of extreme emotional burden and financial crisis, we are raising this fundraiser to help his family cover their daily expenses, raise the kids, and support their educational needs. Your assistance or contribution to this fundraiser would be very much appreciated. All relevant documentation has been included for your reference.
