Help my sister fight against Metastatic Colon Cancer

I am here to raise funds for my younger sister Pooja, who is battling with her life.
Pooja worked as an accountant in a private firm in Guwahati before she was diagnosed with Cancer.
Our father is retired & 70 years old, pulling off somehow with whatever little pension he gets to meet the basic household necessities along with his and mother's medical expenses.
All was fine until one night when Pooja woke up with an unbearable abdominal pain in the middle of night. We got her checked by our doctor the very next morning, with several tests and investigations, only to find out that she was suffering from appendicitis. However, later that night her condition worsened so much that we had to rush her to the Emergency and get her admitted. The horror began only after a couple of more tests, when it was revealed that she has a tumor in her left ovary. Subsequently, her treating doctor advised for a Colonoscopy in which another tumour was revealed in her large intestine. Samples were sent for biopsy.
A couple of days later, when the doctor told us that the test reports were out, my heart throbbed. There was a worried look on his face that frightened us.
"Pooja is suffering from Metastatic Colon Cancer, in a very advanced stage” he told us the next moment.
My body shivered in shock. The word cancer kept echoing in my ears. I can never forget the helpless look on my father's face with teary eyes, however, pretending hard enough to stay strong like a rock like we've always seen him in any difficult situation in the family. But I could sense the fear in his mind. "Her treatment needs to be started ASAP.", next said the doctor.
After one cycle of Chemotherapy at Guwahati, we got her referred to Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital, Mumbai for the best possible treatment we could offer her. She underwent two major surgeries, Staging Lap with Krukenberg tumor excision and sos diversion stoma followed by PIPAC within an interval of 7 days, between the surgeries. The surgeries cost us more than Rs. 10,00,000/- including, the hospital admission charges, medicines, tests, and doctors' fees.
We somehow managed to arrange the amount from our savings and through loans. This has caused significant financial burden and our resources are depleted. We are completely exhausted of funds at this stage. 
But, Pooja's treatment doesn't end here. She needs more cycles of Chemo and targetted therapies in order to continue with her treatment followed by a Stoma reversal surgery which is going to cost us another Rs.6,00,000/- approximately.

Hereby, I humbly request you all to please come forward to help us in providing further treatment for my little sister. Any contribution will be of enormous help. Your contributions can end Pooja’s battle against cancer. Please donate generously and gift her a new life.
