Mr Dinakar and his wife were counselled and explained his prognosis and the necessity of chemotherapy and radiation therapy as a mode of treatment in view of his deteoriating condition.
Indeed times like these can be petrifying by themselves without the added worries of financial constraints. Their hand to mouth earnings never equipped them enough for even some basic necessities of life, let alone a long battle against a deadly disease like cancer.
Today as they struggle physically, emotionally and financially to keep up with the piling medical health bills and Mr Dinakar's frail health, the road ahead seems a tumultous one. Mr Dinakar requires five cycles of chemotherapy and 30 days of radiation therapy ( 5 days a week ), something that is going to burden this aged couple more than we possibly can imagine. The cost of the chemo and radiation should itself come up to 4 lakh, excluding the other added expenses.
At an age where struggle isn't as easy as before, Mr Dinakar and his wife grapple to come to terms with reality while still trying to retain their pride and dignity despite the emotional upheaval they are going through. And so we, as their well wishers, ask of you to find in yourself the compassion and the generosity to aid them in every little way that you can.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, "Give what you have to someone, it may be better than you dare to think." Every penny of yours counts, every effort to share the word counts. It may seem like there is no dearth of people always asking us to contribute for umpteen reasons, but we must ask ourselves this. Hasn't the Almighty been so generous in his blessings towards us and now when it's our time to give back in whatever way we can, will we allow pre conceived notions, apathy or even a mere lack of interest and time stop us from helping a fellow life traveller who is trying to overcome a roadblock ?
At present Mr. Dinakar is undergoing readiotherapy weekly 5 times and has finished one cycle of chemotherapy with cisplatin and etoposide awaiting next cycle.
This is the estimation certificate
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. And indeed the most generous of all, are those who give silently with no hopes of any praise or rewards. We urge you to support this endeavour with your generous contributions, your heartfelt prayers and your sincere wishes that we know will surely go a long way in assisting Mr Dinakar's complete recovery.
Thank you for being patient, kind and generous. May the Almighty's blessings be on you all.
