    This fundraiser will benefit

    Probal Roy

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

This fundraiser is for 14-year old Mohor. I am doing this on behalf of Mohor's dad, Probal (who I have been friends with since I was 10 years old).
Meet Mohor - your typical 14 year old kid, busy growing up, showing streaks of independence and often giving her parents a hard time, with all the love in her heart. She loves singing - she has an angelic voice, loves to sing classical songs. She adores Bob Dylan & Joan Baez , identifies with Taylor Swift and Adele, but sways to the music of Halsey and Billie Eilish. She also loves poetry - her thoughts and words speak of a maturity far beyond the14 years she has spent on this planet. But don't be fooled by her soft demeanor and kind spirit, she is also an accomplished swimmer from when she was 4, and also a brown-black belt in Shito-ryu karate. She aspires to be that rare champion in both departments of the sport, Kata (shadow-fighting) and Kumite (fight). She was so happy to see the event included in the Tokyo Olympics earlier this year! She has the soul of a poet, the wisdom of a philosopher, but aspires to have the agility of a ninja.

But this is where fate has dealt her a cruel blow. Just last week, she and her parents received the worst news any child can ever get: she has now been diagnosed with Acute lymphocytic/lymphoblastic leukemia, also known as ALL, a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. This can progress very rapidly, and can create immature white blood cells in an uncontrolled manner. This is a kind of cancer that needs immediate intense treatment over the next 24-36 months, with bulk of the treatments being administered in the first few months.
She is surrounded by her loved ones, her parents Probal and Surasree are giving her strength, but are also drawing their strength from Mohor.
She is currently undergoing treatment at Tata Medical Center – Cancer Hospital & Research Center. Initial estimates for the first round of chemotherapy and related tests are expected to be around INR 15 Lacs in the first 6 months, with the total cost of treatment over the next 36 months expected to be around INR 35 Lacs

Her parents have medical insurance, but it will cover less than INR 3.5 Lacs of the total costs. So I am asking you to open up your hearts, and donate whatever you can, to enable a teenager to live her dream - of growing up and taking on the world's challenges head on! That's all she is asking for - a shot at life, a chance to grow up, and go to college, spend time with her friends, and bring joy to everyone around her, and hopefully someday give something back to the world.

If you are unable to donate financially, please share this message amongst your friends, and please keep her and her family in your thoughts. She and her family hope to draw their strength from your support, both your words of encouragement as well your financial support.
