I was initially treated in Adyar Cancer Institute and underwent diagnostic laparotomy following which I had cardiomyopathy. I was under ventilator assistance and was treated in the critical care unit. A procedure which was meant to be a day care event, turned out to be a 4-5days long hospital stay and we had to spend around 2.5lakhs for the same. I was discharged home after stabilization. Presently I am undergoing treatment (Chemotherapy + Immunotherapy) in SIMS Hospitals, Vadapalani. The approximate amount required for the chemo + immunotherapy course (6Cycle, 12dose), followed by surgical excision is around 20Lakhs. (Inj. Panitumumab 400mg, 100mg will be around 39,060.00)
With all this unfortunate events we are surviving through every day, the joy of motherhood and the wonderful bond between a mother & a daughter is the one I am unaware off. The mere thought of these wounds my heart deeper because I am unable to feed her or look after her or to even hold her for more than few minutes due to this illness.
I humbly request everyone who is reading this letter to donate as much as you can. Every penny is worthwhile for us. We are eternally grateful.
