Support Madhurima Baidya fight from Cancer (Non hodgkin's lymphoma)

“My family and I moved to Mumbai from Tirupati for my treatment. They have been my pillars of strength through these tough times. I still can’t help but feel like a burden.”

I am Madhurima Baidya and I have been fighting cancer since 2016.
Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a deadly cancer that starts in white blood cells, which are part of the body’s immune system. I underwent treatment for the same. It made me so weak that I had to drop out of school for a while. It has been 4 years since, and I still haven’t been able to go back to school.
In 2017, when I was supposed to be in recovery, I relapsed. My cancer was in remission and the doctors said that if I did not get a Bone Marrow Transplant immediately I would not have very long to live. This sent shivers down my spine but I stayed strong. I had my family’s love and support to see me through this. Luckily my sister was a perfect match for a donor so I underwent the transplant as soon as possible. After the procedure, I was told to come in for a regular check-up in 3 months to see my progress. I was relieved as I thought I was finally healthy again. Little did I know that fate had different plans for me.

When I went for the next check-up, the doctors told me I had relapsed again. They told me I needed a Donor Leukocyte Infusion (DLI) which could help control recurrent cancer me. Post this procedure, they ran a few PET scans, but nothing changed. If it weren’t for my family constantly being there for me and helping me stay positive, I would have given up this time. They helped me get through this and gave me hope again. Finally, now I am undergoing immunotherapy, which seems to be working.
Unfortunately, we are no longer financially capable of funding this life-saving treatment. My parents have exhausted their life savings and have also taken loans to pay for my treatments. We can barely manage to buy the medicines.
Please donate however much you can. Please help save my life.

Hello friends!
I am happy to share Madhurima's health update with you. She has been recovering steadily as before and receiving her weekly tests and medicines. Her parents and sister are still in Mumbai.

Her sister's cells had been preserved by the hospital when she had gone to Mumbai as a bone marrow transplant donor. Now doctors have started Donor Leukocyte Infusion (DLI) treatment. Madhurima is receiving those cells along with rituximab medicine. She was admitted in hospital on 30 and 31 July and was given some injections. In DLI the patient receives a boost of immune cells from the original donor's blood as a strategy to manage cancer relapse. After this first treatment, doctors will see its response and will plan further accordingly. She will undergo more such DLI procedures in future. Below are some pictures.




I thank you on behalf of Madhurima and my family for your kind help.

Dear friends.I am happy to share Madhurima's progress report. After her bone marrow transplant one PET scan has been done to check if there are any tumor cells or malignant cells. Her biopsy report shows no malignancy which means that there no disease in the tissue. This is happy news for us! Further evaluation has been advised by the doctor and there will be more PET scans ahead. Her blood test reports are also consistently good and her haemoglobin has increased to 13.3. We are hoping that this will continue and she will gain more strength.
Thank you for your support and kindness. Please spread the word further to help us continue her treatment.
