Such is the case with my mother. She has led an incredibly difficult life and has tried to make the most of it. She has two kids, my elder sister and I, both teenagers. She has been diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, which has spread to her lungs and liver. The doctors have started her on chemotherapy, initially 7 rounds, to see how she responds to the treatment. She is undergoing treatment at Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI), Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. It is painful to watch her go through this, even with her iron will.
My sister and I, whose studies were already affected due to COVID have furthermore being plunged into hopelessness. My mother is a homemaker while my father works in the construction business with low to medium income. We have been struggling to get by. And suddenly our family has been struck with this nightmare. The doctor has put the initial estimate as INR 5 lac. The actual cost is going to be way more due to the fact that she might have to fight other infections in her body and moving in and out of the hospital during the treatment.
Hence, we request you to please support my mother with her treatment so that a family can be saved from falling apart. In such trying times, all we ask for is a ray of hope.
God bless you.
