This is Sheena Bhattacharya. I'm 22 years old and I'm from Kolkata. My cousin, Niloy Bhattacharya, who is just 25 years old, is suffering from Leukemia and needs urgent treatment.
He is the only earning member of his family of four which includes his father, mother and sister who is in second year of Bachelor's degree. His father (my uncle) lost his job during the pandemic. Their entire family got infected with Covid during the second wave. Uncle's condition got extremely worse as he is a Diabetes patient. He was on the verge of death and that's why they had to use even the last penny of their savings to save his life. Situations got so much worse that there was nothing left for the treatment of his wife, daughter and son.
Now, even though my cousin recovered from Covid with time without any treatment, the virus managed to cause enough damage to cause infection in his heart and lungs. Unfortunately, with time it developed into Leukemia.
We are trying to help him as much as we can, but still it is not even providing to be enough for the treatment. On top of all these, there are only four places in Kolkata where hematologist oncologist is available. We tried to admit him in a government hospital but there was no seat. We are already lagging behind in his treatment due to the heavy expenses.
Thus, my entire family and Niloy's parents and sister, are requesting you all to come forward and help my cousin to fight Leukemia with whatever you can. We would be grateful to you forever.
