A small plea to you all...🙏🙏
In last 2 years we have spent almost 30 lakhs and now we are on the verge of financial crunch. But we don't want to stop the treatment.
I've never seen my father to hesitate from unconditionally helping anyone financially. So, I believe a person who always helped others shouldn't die because of scarcity of funds.
Please support us to continue his treatment...🙏🙏
Please help us to keep my father's Cancer under control as long as possible...🙏🙏
I don't was to lose my father.
HERE IS HIS STORY OF FIGHT WITH CANCER (IN SHORT)
My Father has been suffering from Cancer for last two years now.
The very first time it was early stage Oral Cancer. Doctors assured us that one surgery and 30 radiations will cure him completely and accordingly the treatment was done from January to April 2018. After that he was cancer free. But he has not been able to eat properly and tongue started to have burning sensation.
Exactly after one year in January 2019 during followup doctors found that the Cancer has gone to his lung. They again suggested that surgery, radiation and chemo will cure him. This time we got really upset about the diagnosis but thought of trying our luck for the second time and the treatment went on from January to April 2019. We were really hopeful that he will get cured now but during July 2019 followup we got the very distressing news that Cancer has again comeback in his lung. Since then my father has broke down mentally.And because of the new tumor he started to have continuous 24x7 severe chest/back pain which didn't get controlled even with high dose of morphine.
Doctors told there is no chance of cure.
We have tried to figure out all the possible options and found that immunotherapy is the only option which can keep the Cancer in control. But the problem is that Immunotherapy is very costly. Each cycle costs more than 1 lakh and he needs 2 cycles/ month for indefinite time to keep the Cancer in check.
Till now in one year we have spent more than 15 lakhs in surgery, radiation and chemo. Now arranging almost 3 lakhs each month for Immunotherapy, for 2 cycles/month and hospital expenses, was a big challenge. But my elder brother agreed to the treatment as he had a health insurance for our father. Last month my brother's insurance got exhausted so we started to use our parent's saving and completed 10 cycles of Immunotherapy treatment which costed more than 14 lakhs ( Insurance+ saving).For last 2 cycles doctors are adding chemo along with Immunotherapy as his chest/back pain was not going down.
Because of this new Immuno+chemo after six months his pain started come down little bit. But he multiple times got admitted to hospital because of side effects. Recently he was hospitalized for 20 day including 10 days on ventilator in ICU. We were lucky that he came out of ICU but it costed us more than 5 lakhs. Doctors told us to be prepared for more such hospitalizations because of Immuno/chemo side effects.
Everyday pain and weekness is a struggle for my father for last two years... Only thing is this current treatment (Chemo+Immuno) has given him as well as us little ray of hope. The scan showed mild response to this treatment. So, please help us to continue the treatment for him.
