Help my friend Dinesh fight Lung Cancer (Adenocarcinoma of Lung stage 4)

My friend Dinesh needs your help. Dinesh has been diagnosed with Stage 4 adenocarcinoma lung cancer which unfortunately is a type of cancer that affects non smokers. Adenocarcinoma is today the most common form of lung cancer in women, Asians, and people under the age of 45. It is more likely to strike non-smokers (either never smokers or former smokers) than people who currently smoke. I have never seen Dinesh smoke/drink alcohol. Dinesh comes from a lower income family. He is the first graduate in his family and things were looking fine when he graduated with a degree in mechanics from polytechnic studies. He was looking forward to a bright future with his wife and his new born girl who is now 1 year old. Things turned upside down when he spit blood last year April, 2019. Since then Dinesh has gone through 12 chemotherapy sessions with further advice from doctors to undergo chemo as well as radiotherapy. With each session costing around 25,000Rs excluding travel and additional medicines, Dinesh needs our help. While he has now lost employment, and his medical insurance has given up on him, friends and relatives of Dinesh have put in money so far for his treatment. He has tried all avenues to generate funds such as govt cancer schemes which are demoralisingly slow and unreachable. The cost is continuing to go up with many more sessions recommended for Dinesh until the size of the spread reduces and we would like to raise funds for him. If you know Dinesh from his school days you will know how kind and caring he usually is to others. It's a tragedy he has to face this. He was the first to go to school in his family. He was a promising cricketer like many Indians he had to focus on getting a stable job which he has now lost. Kindly help Dinesh get through this fight. This is a genuine request and any contribution to this is highly appreciated. Dinesh even promises to try to give these contributions back when he gets stable on his feet. You can contact me (Santosh at besantosham@gmail.com or Dinesh directly at +919320126710). Thanks for reading. Attached reports

Update 4: 14 chemos later Dinesh and all his well wishers are awaiting results of his scan that is scheduled for August 20. We will know about the latest size of cancer cells. Dinesh has also come across Ayurveda treatment from Shimoga Karnataka which he is going to undergo parallely. Ayurveda treatment is basically consuming natural tree bark boiled in water and similar such natural therapy for just around 1000 Rs so Dinesh thinks it's worth a try. Hopefully by end of this month we will know if all of this has had an effect on his cancer cells. Fingers crossed. Thanks and we will be closing this campaign in one week if anyone wants to contribute again please do so. Thanks.

Update 2
174 supporters as of June 30, 2020 and over 4.45lakhs collected for Dinesh's treatment and expenses.
To be fully transparent how these funds are going to be utilised, I will try and get detailed bills and expenses report from Dinesh but I also don't want his family to be doing a lot of paper work. So to give them enough space I will be reaching out to them after the next chemo session after JULY 6. Each and every wish here has been sent across to Dinesh in the form of screenshots and many of you have also contacted Dinesh at +919320126710 which is awesome as he certainly feels more confident now. I have now requested funds to be transferred to Dinesh's account on whatever is collected so far while the campaign will still be alive, funds collected so far will reach his Axis bank account within 3 days(Indian contributions) and within 7 days(Foreign contributions). Do not hesitate to reach out to me or Dinesh for further updates. Thank you all again. I will repost an update when I have more document and expense details. Thanks.
