I am Robert Moses a cab driver by profession. My father, Mr Paulraj a tea vendor until becoming sick with Oral cancer, underwent two surgeries, radiation therapy & chemotherapy in 2014. He was getting back to activities of daily living.
However, he was diagnosed with recurrence of oral cancer on the same side and site in early 2020. The fear of surgery and Covid Pandemic increased the size and spread of the tumour. Mustering courage, we approached the doctor with hope. An estimate of INR 10,00,000/- was given for the cancer surgery and reconstructing the face defect, provided he undergoes a few cycles of chemotherapy at extra cost, to reduce the size of tumour and make it operable.
We pooled in all our resources and went ahead with Neo adjuvant chemotherapy in Nov 2020 to Jan 2021 at a cost of INR 6,00,000/-.
Since 10 Feb 2021 he is in hospital ICU undergoing various surgical treatments Though the cancer is out, due to unexpected complications, he was taken to operation many times. He needs further surgery for filling the cheek/mouth defect through Cancer Reconstructive Surgery.
We have exhausted all our financial resources for his treatment. Help us find donors to complete his treatment.
Details of the hospital have been shared with Milaap.org as per protocol.
p.s:- I have taken the help of my doctor to reach out to you on this platform ...
