Please Help Joe Fight Bladder Cancer & Sepsis.

My name is Xafira Mendonsa and I am here to fundraise for Jose Peter Mendonsa (best known as Joe Mendonsa)

Jose Peter Mendonsa is 67 years old and is a resident of Porvorim, Goa. Jose Mendonsa is known to be a very lively and over active man who is known for his humour who keeps everyone happy and laughing.  Joe has genuinely reached out to people who needed his help. But today, it’s the reverse. He is crying in pain and fighting for his life. Joe needs help now. He has been diagnosed with Bladder cancer. 

It was in Feb 2019, when the symptoms first started. Joe felt immense pain and was very uncomfortable. He thought it was was the kidney stone that is obstructing him from passing urine and then spend hours in the washroom only to pass one drop of urine with burning pain. The doctors helped him do some tests and medications, but nothing really showed up. I called Joe to Mumbai from Ratnagiri and booked an appointment with a top Onco-Urologist at Hinduja Hospital where he was asked to do a CT scan and blood tests and it was here that it was confirmed that he has a flat tumor resting on the bladder wall causing him all the burning pain and urine obstruction. Joe’s doctor in Ratnagiri further introduced him to Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital And Research Center in Pune. He got admitted there to have more tests done and to do a biopsy to further test if the tumor was malignant or benign. Then in a week, the reports came positive and he was rushed to have a Cystectomy done. He was operated on July 16, 2019, and until today he is fighting for his life in the ICU. Due to his very weak immune system, he keeps getting infections in his lungs, blood, urine, low bp and constantly on the ventilator. Now he has multiple bed sores which are pretty deep which are also causing him a lot of pain. He has lost his speech and body movements due to which we do not understand what he wants to tell us. All that we do is pray and pray for his pain to disappear and to see a miracle.

He is currently being treated at Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital and Research Centre which will cost around Rs. 900,000. Joe needs medication, chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and rehabilitation to fully recover.

Please come forward to help me save Joe. Any contribution will immensely help him alot. I urgently need your support. I urge you to share this campaign link with your friends and family as much as possible. Thank You for your kindness and God bless us all !!

My dear Well-wisher,

Thank you for the wonderful support. I am touched and extremely grateful to your generous contribution, prayers as well as your concerns.



My sincere apologies for being away and not sharing any updates about Joe. I was looking forward to some improvement in Joe's condition and then to send you one final email with a positive narrative.
Joe is still fighting for his life in the ICU and is on life support and is critical. In medical terms, he is now diagnosed for urosepsis. It is an infection which is life-threatening and put on strong antibiotics and expensive injections & medications. Each injection costs approx INR 8000/-  in addition, the cost for his bed, IV  and life support along with the specialist's costs is going up to 20,000/- per day. He is now being treated by disease specialists along with the many different specialists.

Joe has been in the hospital ever since July 16, 2019, and is still in the ICU until today. Please share my fundraiser in your circles as much as you can or raise funds by running a support campaign.

Please don't miss out to see his recent picture updated on Milaap website https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-joe-peter-mendonsa

A BIG THANK YOU! To all of you who supported us when we needed it the most, by means of your prayers and financially. We are grateful to you and will forever remain. We are anxiously waiting to see Joe recover soon.
