27 years old Karthik needs your help fight Tongue cancer

Karthik Rajendaran (Male 27yrs) is our beloved colleague/friend who is very sweet and helpful in nature.

He was working as Front-end engineer in a small start-up in Chennai. By nature he is a jovial and talkative person who likes to talk a lot and make people happy around him.

From December 2019 he had a discomfort in his tongue and throat which he wouldn't have thought that it would turn his life upside down.

Upon diagnosis doctors from Adyar cancer institute told him that it was cancer. He had two choices (i) He  has to either undergo an operation or (ii) Opt for chemotherapy

He had prefered to undergo an operation where part of his tongue had to be cut to avoid the spread of cancer cells. Inspite of knowing that the operation might have a serious impact in his speaking ability he went ahead boldly for it.

The surgery went well amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. The doctors told that slowly he would be able to recover back from the wound in his tongue.

Now even after 6 months instead of pain dropping down it got aggravated. Upon further diagnosis it was a big shock that the tumor was still growing.

Even the doctors weren't sure why it's happening. Even to take a tissue biopsy he had to undergo a surgery. Multiple operations conducted but it couldn't be treated completely.

Now doctors have advised to opt for chemotherapy which is estimated to cost around 7-10 lacs.

Karthik had spent all his savings for the previous surgeries and medications. His family was entirely relying on his earning hence they were unable to arrange such large amount. Since he was working in a early stage start-up insurance cover was not provided.

Now he definitely needs our support to overcome this difficult phase of his life. Any kind of small help would make a huge difference in his life. So kindly come forward to support and share it with your network to gain more support.

Dear Supporters,

The chemotherapy procedures for Karthik has been postponed, as he is not physically strong enough to take the procedures. He is currently under medication and his procedures will be starting after a month (once he is physically fit to take the procedures). Now, he should live with the pain for another month.

We would like to thank all the donors and notify that we are 4 lakhs short for his treatment. Hoping to get the necessary financial support before his procedures starts.

Dear Supporters,

Karthik has gone through the COVID test twice in the last 15 days and it is negative on both the tests. However, on the CT scan, doctors found some infections on his lungs. Hence, we took Karthik to Apollo Chennai for consultation with the doctors from the Department of Infectious Diseases, Apollo.

After the consultation, doctors from Apollo has advised us to self-quarantine till 09th October. Till then, the procedures will be on hold. There will be the 2nd level of consultation with the Doctors in Apollo on the 09th Oct and upon clearance from them, the Chemo and Radio procedures will be initiated.

Thanks & Regards,
Sathish.
