She underwent Renal transplantation in Coimbatore Kidney Centre on Feb,2007. In 2019, She was given medicines when she suffered from cough, cold, sore throat, weight loss and decreased appetite on and off 5 months. The to and fro continued for over 5 months before the doctor finally recommended Revathi to get the CT scan.
When she fell ill, she couldn’t muster enough energy to even chew her food well. She wasn’t able to digest the food she consumed either. The trouble with eating and digestion left my wife fatigued.
I, Subramaniyam, anxiously took her to the hospital when she suffered from severe abdominal pain and continuous vomiting. Finally, the doctor recommended Revathi to get a CT scan. Unfortunately, the reports showed that she had a Gastro intestinal Lymphoma and she requires an immediate surgery. So, she undergone Laprotomy and small bowel resection on 10.04.2020. Intra operatively visual examination was consistent with the possibility of Lymphoma. Then Doctor advised to take a PET scan. Looking at the report, the most shocking news was revealed. My Wife had Diffuse large B-Cell Lymphoma of Ileum Stage 2 Cancer.
As Revathi’s diagnosis was confirmed, She was asked by the Oncologist to start the R-CHOP Chemo Regimen.
From being a mother of 3 children, a time came in Revathi’s life which was filled with sleepless nights and long stay at the hospital. It took a long time for me and my children to accept her diagnosis.
Ever since Revathi has been undergoing painful Chemotherapy sessions and had no escape from syringes and high-dosage medications. I spent every single rupee of my savings, mortgaged the land and even borrowed more money from close relatives. Revathi’s grueling treatment has cost lakhs of rupees so far.
Revathi’s treatment went on for over 6 months. And honestly, it has taken away more than it has given me anything. She had only begun to feel better, but the follow up reports continued to show the presence of cancer cells in her blood. Now the medical estimate has been given to me to undertake 6 cycles of Chemotherapy.
It is impossible to afford Rs.17,50,000 Lakhs for my wife’s treatment without your help before October 2,2020.
I constantly live with the fear that cancer may take away Revathi’s life. I am working as a daily wage labor. The money needed to save my wife is something I have never seen before in my life. It feels like my children and I are watching her slip away from us and there is nothing we can do to stop that.
Out of desperation, I plead to you for help my only chance of saving my wife and taking her back to home is you. Your donation will mean everything to us. Please share my wife’s story far and wide, so we receive the help for the urgently need.
