    K Keerthana Ratna Chandrika

    from Narasapur, Andhra Pradesh

Hi, 

I am Joshi Jai Chandra and I am here to raise funds for my sister K Keerthana Ratna Chandrika who is 24 years old lives in Narasapur, west Godavari district, A.P.  We are 3 siblings, we lost our elder brother who was 16years old in 2008 due to a brain tumor which was ruled out in an advanced state so couldn't save him. We were still grieving his loss and it was hardly 2 months and my sister developed some unusual symptoms at the age of 12 years and took her to the local doctor, that local doctors referred her to CMC, Vellore, Tamilnadu. There the doctor's found that she is having a type of blood cancer called lymphoblastic lymphoma. The family has shattered once again, it was unbearable physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. 

Financially we finished all resorts, my father is a teacher and the only breadwinner in the family. We were paying loans, people all around supported us and now for younger sister again we had to think and somehow through everyone's contribution started our treatment in CMC and 2 years time with all difficulties, challenges, from critical state to she fought the fight and recovered. She continued her studies, finished her master's in English literature, worked as a teacher in a school for some time, and is currently pursuing a BEd and preparing for NET  to do a Ph.D. Her dreams were to join a teaching profession like her father as she is also passionate and also to support and help my sole bread-winning father pay off the earlier dues.
 
She was all well till a month back.  Due to Covid, we couldn't come for follow-ups, so just a month back we came for the follow-up, and the doctor during investigations found that she is having some problems in her intestines which require major surgery, meanwhile, she developed Pneumonia and was admitted. Now the doctors have told to the family that she will have to go through a procedure called colectomy and following that may require multiple surgeries and prolonged treatment which would cost approximately INR 8 lacs as per the doctors.

I am making this request for donation for my sister, who in 2010 won the battle with blood cancer at the age of 14. Now 11 years later while having a routine checkup, we were told that my sister developed polyps in her intestines and needs further treatment.
