    This fundraiser will benefit

    Dr B S Mhapralkar

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

It is on a not so happy occasion that I am posting this. My father is very ill and diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme, which in layman's term is a grade 4 aggressive brain tumor. He is 75 years old and admitted at the K J Somaiya Hospital at Sion, Mumbai.  A doctor by profession, since 1969, he has devoted himself to providing medical aid to the adivasis in the Vasai-Virar region. He also was the principal of Virar Homeopathic medical college for five years.

After he suffered a stroke on March 29, 2018, while he was treating a patient in his clinic at Nalasopara, he has been living with me in Mumbai. Over the last eight months, expenses towards his treatment have amounted to Rs.8 lakhs roughly. A part of it was supported by me, and a part was spent from my parent's mearge life savings, both having devoted their life to social causes rather than earn handsomely.

With the need to operate and remove his tumour and provide him with a fighting chance to live and continue his good work, I am looking for financial help. We are looking at an expense in the region of 6 lakhs, which would include his operation costs, post-operative care costs and some of the costs that would involve radiotherapy and chemotherapy as per the need. My family responsibilities towards my brother and mother who are dependent on me, and my wife and our 5-year-old daughter are making it difficult for me to pull the costs. I am therefore requesting for fundraising. Thanking you in anticipation.
