We would like to share about Bhawani and his current health conditions.
Bhawani Shankar Meena is 39 years old and currently working for Indian railways and lives in Karauli, Rajasthan with his elder brother’s family. He having Oligodendroglioma which commonly known as high grade brain tumor. His current health conditions are getting deteriorate with time since he diagnosed in July-August 2016. Since then, he had gone through 3 major brain surgeries but the tumor relapsed again after each surgery. He had been through chemotherapy twice but did not work to cure his tumor. His family received the heartbreaking news about the follow-up MRIs and it’s not the news they wanted to hear, his MRI showed new tumor growths in his brain and aggressive. The chemo he was on did not work and finally been advised by his doctor to go for Radiation Therapy in September last year. After radiation therapy, his health condition started to deteriorate more due to radiation side effects which started with memory losses, high blood pressure, diabetes, less vision followed by swelling in the brain. Currently, he is completely bedridden in a vegetative state and having lots of pain.
He had 2 brain surgeries followed by Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy at P. D. Hinduja National Hospital & Medical Research Centre Mumbai. Until now, His family have spent about Rs. 15,00,000 which they arranged the amount from savings & loans. Currently, he is taking treatment from Neuro Surgeon in Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Hospital and Research Center Jaipur but his body and brain are not responding well to this treatment and leading to impact multiple organs.
In the next 30 days, we need Rs.25, 00, 000 more for his advance treatment, neuro physiology and therapy in CK Birla Hospital Jaipur or any good recommended hospitals/healthcare facility in Jaipur along with 2nd independent consulting from India’s well known Neurosurgeons and Neuro Physicians.
