Bhavika Patel was diagnosed with blood cancer in 2016. Initially, there were some anomalies in her haemoglobin stats, but later on it was determined it was cancer. Chetan Patel, her brother, said, “No one in our family had cancer. On hearing that my sister had cancer, entire family was speechless. Broken too.” Bhavika’s family didn't want her to give up on life and thus decided to not tell her about her cancer. She eventually did come to know, but she didn't lose hope. She was admitted in Fortis, where she completed her chemotherapy and till July 2016, her chemotherapy was over. She was victorious.
In November 2017, during a follow up, cancer cells were identified again. She had a relapse. Chetan and her entire family were devastated. “It was me who always got sick, and she used to take care of me. But now this being the other way round, I feel weak. Helpless, I feel I can't do enough.”
To defeat cancer this time, she has to have a bone marrow transplant. The Patel family has mentally prepared themselves and feel stronger than ever. Bhavika has a 5 year old daughter, who at a tender age has decided to be strong enough for her mother. Bhavika’s will to live is all because of her family and for them she is ready to endure everything from the painful therapy, the needles everything.
The transplant and the chemotherapy is going to cost a fortune. Even after taking loans, help from friends and family, they aren't able to accumulate enough money for the treatment.
A very distressed Chetan makes an appeal for his beloved sister, “I request you all to provide me financial support so that my sister can defeat cancer again and live her life for her daughter. The only dream for which she is living. I know god is also with us and with all of your support my sister and our entire family can defeat cancer”.
