    Ganga Lakshmi

    from Bengaluru (Bangalore) Urban, Karnataka

Ganga, my wife a 33-year-old domestic help, had undergone a lumpectomy surgery in March 2018 for a lump in her right breast at a private hospital in Bangalore. The doctor assured that she has no further complications and is fit to return to work. We were instructed to submit tissue samples at Kidwai Hospital Bangalore for further testing. I checked the results myself and saw that negative was mentioned in all reports.
Since, we had lost our house and all money in paying medical expenses; I decided to let Ganga stay in her current employer's house as a nanny; while I worked as an Ola cab driver. Everything was fine until the third month of her employment when she developed a persistent cough. It was at that time that I showed the test reports to her employer, who is a healthcare professional. To our shock, the negative in the reports did not mean that Ganga did not have cancer. It meant that my wife had Triple NEGATIVE breast cancer which is an aggressive form of cancer. Due to our ignorance, Ganga did not receive any treatment for 5 months and the disease had spread to her lungs.
We started chemotherapy at Kidwai Hospital in OCT-2018. She failed first line of therapy after receiving 6 cycles. The doctor then initiated second line of therapy which also failed to show sufficient improvement after 3 cycles. Right now we are getting treatment at Prakriya Hospital under Dr KR Madhava. Though, the treatment has drained us financially; Ganga's confidence remains undeterred. She believe's that medical science will definitely cure her disease and she would be achieve all her dreams.
We need to raise 3 lakhs to complete six cycles of third line of chemotherapy. Any contribution, big or small will be of great assistance to us.
