My name is Shilpa Sawant and I am here to raise funds for my husband Raj Pradeep Pawar who is 31 years old. We've been married for 1 year. he lives in Mumbai, Maharashtra with me.
he is being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It all started in August 2020, When he noticed a lump on his throat area, We consulted many local doctors and advised several medications and observation as it was not getting bigger until March 2021, It started increasing in size therefore we decided to do the excision of the node and did the surgery in April 2021 by Dr. Meenesh Juvekar(ENT Surgeon) from Mumbai, surgery was successful and we removed the node and sent it to further testing and result came as Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After all further tests – PET, 2d Echo and several blood tests doctor gave one good news that he will not have to go under Chemotherapy at this moment as scan only showed nodes in throat and nowhere else in body, we started his Radiation Therapy at Sir. H.N. Reliance Hospital, Mumbai from Dr. Prasad Dandekar from 10th June 2021 and now his next PET scan will be in October 2021 and hoping that it will not relapse. If the same happened he will have to go under chemotherapy
During all this time due to Covid Pandemic, as he work in Multiplex Industry, he has been receiving only half salary from May 2020 till date because cinemas are not open due to government restrictions. and I also lost my job due to pandemic and searching for Job. we have not told this to Raj's mother about cancer as his father passed away 9 years back due to liver cancer and she is distressed by it. Until now we have spent around 5.5 lacs on his treatment from Aug 2020 till date, we are already in debt and unable to pay the same. we need Rs.7,00,000more for Further Treatment. Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.
