Story

To give a brief background, Rahul Roy , a 11 years 10 months old boy is diagnosed with Thymoma, a rare type of malignant tumor which grows in the area between two lungs and the rib-cage in the chest. He was admitted to Department of Paediatrics Oncology, private hospital, Kolkata on mid of August under the supervision of Dr. Reghu K S, as his physical condition started to deteriorate.

Facts about Thymoma: Thymoma is a rare type of malignant tumor of the thymus gland. Thymus is a gland located in the area between the two lungs and the rib-cage in the chest. Thymus gland plays a critical role in the development of immune cells during childhood which fights and protects our body against the diseases for the rest of the life. Hence the thymoma affects the entire immune system and the immunity of the affected individual severely.

Management of the treatment: As per doctor's opinion, the intent of the treatment is curative. The prescribed management of the treatment involves a chemotherapy of four cycles to reduce the size of the tumor followed by a surgery to remove the tumor.

Expenditure of the treatment: For the diagnosis of this ailment , already 2 lakhs has been paid. The estimated expenditure of the chemotherapy is 5 lakhs and of the surgery is 8 lakhs as communicated by private hospital.

Already an amount of rupees 2 lakhs have been paid so far for his diagnosis process and medications. As his father works as a contractual labour and does not have much savings, this amount of 2 lakhs already exhausted all his family savings and his father is left with very little savings to continue his treatment.
To help Rahul to come out of this, your small contribution towards this not only save Rahul to help fight this condition at this tender age, but also gives hope to him and his family.

Your help will be much appreciated and the only way currently ,we can return back your favour would be to pray for you and your families to stay safe and healthy with all your happiness.
