I'm Biprav Chetry and I have started this fundraiser here to help meet my father's treatment expenses. My father, Bidyut Chetry is currently undergoing treatment for Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (Tongue Cancer, 3rd Stage) in Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Chennai for the last 1 month.
The tumor was detected last month in Apollo hospital and it has already progressed to the 3rd stage, so the treatment had to be started immediately. The treatment comprises Radiation therapy and Chemotherapy. Financially, it has been very tough for our family to bear the medical expenses as the diagnosis and treatment was started immediately and we didn't anticipate that it was a case of cancer and the expenses will be so high. Till now we have spent about 5 lakhs rupees on medical expenses, exhausting all our family savings. We even had to borrow quite a large amount of money from other people to meet the expenditure.
For the remainder of the treatment, we need about 3 lakhs rupees more to meet the expenses including the treatment, medications, and other sudden emergency expenses which have occured throughout the treatment.
Our family is already facing a financial shortfall and will need more funds to continue the treatment as well as post treatment medications and follow ups. This is a humble request to everyone to please contribute to my father's treatment, for which we shall be eternally grateful to you.
