Story

Hi, my name is Mrs Cheryl Cantopher, I am here to raise funds for my son, Ashton Cantopher who is 33 years old. We are both residing at Dr G S Bose Rd, Kolkata. He is the sole working member in our household living paycheck to paycheck. As you all know by now, Ashton has been suffering from kidney failure since Dec 2017 and has been on dialysis. Since his nephrectomy (kidney removal) in Feb 2020, he is undergoing dialysis thrice weekly.

Before I go ahead, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to my sons treatment the last two times. I am extremely grateful to each one of you. The money was used towards his nephrectomy last year, monthly dialysis which costs Rs.36,400 per month, doctor visits and various medical tests and procedures which were part of the transplant process.

Ashton has already been admitted twice this year and spent 27 days in hospital for a severe infection in the left kidney. We are now extremely close to receiving a date for the transplant but he will need to undergo a second nephrectomy to remove his left kidney just 3 weeks before the transplant. The nephrectomy will cost somewhere between 3 to 4 lakhs. The cost for the kidney transplant has now increased to Rs.9,20,000 excluding addtnl charges which may or may not be required. The biggest blow is that donor charges will not be covered which amounts to Rs.3,00,000(+). He will also be under very expensive immunosuppressant medications after the transplant lifelong. As his insurance will not be near enough to cover everything, I humbly request your contribution to support us, support Ashton to get back his normal life.

Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this link with your friends and family..
