    This fundraiser will benefit

    Sanjay Mehrotra

    from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh

My name is Radhika Mehrotra, I am resident of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. And working as a teacher in Azim Premji School, Uttarkashi. 

I am here to fundraise for my father, Sanjay Mehrotra, who is suffering from Multiple Myeloma, a kind of blood cancer. 

Last year in December my father frequently complained of pain in the chest and ribs, breathlessness and fever. Thinking it might be regular viral fever, he  continued with his work. Upon frequent relapse of the fever we went for blood test which showed his hemoglobin below five and platelets count 35000. My father was immediately admitted in Ram Manohar Lohia Institute, Lucknow. The doctor recommended a bone marrow test. The results of the test turned our lives upside down. He was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.

Since then it has been a continuous struggle of the entire family. My father who is a hardworking person, enjoys being with people is unable to pay attention to his business and now seems to be very dull. For my mother it is equally strenuous as she has to look after my father, the business and the house too. I graduated this year in May from Azim Premji University, and started working in June. Thus, I am not financially strong enough to support the financial  

Unfortunately the treatment my father was undergoing since past 9 months did not help him recover and the illness relapsed. 
Thus, we were asked to refer to another doctor in Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute Of Medical Sc., Lucknow. Now, the medical treatment being given to fully recover is Daratumumab therapy. The initial estimated cost of this therapy was 15 ,00,000 and the new estimate as provided by the doctor is 20,00,000. The therapy is given in doses every week and each dose costs us around 2,50,000, He needs to go through 16 such doses.  
 As I graduated this year in May from Azim Premji University and started working in June, I am not financially strong enough to support the financial  needs of the treatment. 
Some of our close relatives and friends have come forward to help us but we still have a long battle to fight and we need your support in this. 

Please come forward to help me save my father. Any contribution will immensely help my family. I need your support to bring him home happy and healthy again. 

 Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.
