With all my due respect, I, K.V Govindan, an agricultural Labor, aged about 48 years, residing at Panapuza PO, M.M. Bazar Via, Kannur District, Kerala, 670 306 and writing this request letter with great hope in my heart. My son Anirudh, aged about 20 years has been diagnosed with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor in liver and Insulinoma in pancreas. Doctors of MIMS Kannur (Dr. Sujith Kumar M), who is treating him have informed me that he requires surgery at the earliest and commenced the Octreotide based therapy. I am in desperate need of financial help as myself is not able to arrange the huge amount required for the medical treatment which is beyond the reach of an agricultural labour like me. The doctor informed that the treatment will last for months together and will cost us some lakhs and it is beyond our reach and imagination and have no one to turn to besides our friends, family and well-wishers, like you. I am already living from hand to mouth and don’t have any other source of income. In addition, I too undergo medical treatment for the past 15 years due to fracture in my lower spine, which also requires good amount of money on a daily basis, and the same is being managed by some likeminded people in my native.
I, humbly request each one of you to assist me, be kind and generous in this noble cause and help me since I am in real state of need of funds for my son’s treatment. Please find the medical report of my son along with this letter. I request you to consider my request and help a poor soul to bring back to life. I shall be really thankful to you till my last. I am looking forward to a positive response and request each one of you from the bottom of my heart to join our effort to save my child, and contribute towards his recovery.
