Story

19-year-old Pradip Patil dreamed of finishing school, writing NEET, and getting into a medical college to follow his dreams of becoming a doctor. But 2 years ago all his dreams were crushed when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer. Living within the four walls of the hospital, undergoing painful chemotherapy sessions and hoping for a cancer-free life, Pradip has slowly moved away from his education journey and dream of becoming a doctor. Now even chemotherapy is not helping and to fight cancer he needs an urgent bone marrow transplant that his farmer father is unable to afford without your help.

Urgent bone marrow transplant can give him a cancer-free life

A few years back, Pradip noticed a slight swelling in his neck, which wasn’t subsiding with regular medicines. He was taken to a bigger hospital where he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma - cancer of a part of the immune system called the lymphatic system which limits his body's ability to fight infection. A Bone Marrow Transplant at the earliest will help him become cancer-free but his family is struggling to afford the ₹15 Lakhs needed for it. However his family managed to arrange ₹ 9,26,000 through hand loans, medical insurance, bank loans and other charities, but they are still short of 5,70,000.

“When the doctors told me I have cancer…my whole life came falling apart. I had so many plans for my future. Now, I feel like a burden to my family. There are days when my brother skips meals and lies to me that he isn’t hungry…just to save up for my surgery. I don’t wish to trouble them anymore. I want to study, become a doctor and repay all their loans. Please help me” - Pradip

Cancer is draining this family

Pradip's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018. While she is slowly recovering and getting treated in the same hospital where Pradip is admitted - they had to pool in all their savings, take loans and his farmer father has had to sell their only piece of agricultural land to pay the bills. Now, neck-deep in debts, they have nothing left to save Pradip.

You are Pradip’s only hope

Doctors have advised Pradip to undergo a bone marrow transplant within a month as his chances of getting well are high. But a huge sum of ₹ 5,74,000 is now beyond their means. You are this young boy’s only hope and the family’s last resort. Please help Pradip become cancer-free. Help him chase his dreams, donate now.
