Support Shilna's Fight Against Cancer

19 YEAR  SHILNA  IS  FIGHTING  A  DEADLY  CANCER.
"Shilna  has  been  an  intelligent  girl  and  she  always  topped  her  exams. She  wanted  to  complete  her  studies,  with a job  and  stand  on  her  own  feet  and  support  her  family.  Now  the  life  has  thrown  a  curve-ball  at  her  and  she  is  completely  broken.  Her  doctor  says  there's  still  hope  for  cure if  proper  treatment  is  given.  But  we  are  left  with  no  funds  and  there  is  only  darkness  infront  of  us" says  her  mother.  

SHILNA  WAS  FINE  UNTIL  SHE  DEVELOPED  PAIN IN  THE  ABDOMEN 1  MONTH  BACK..
Shilna is  doing her final  year BSc in Physics  with  her  university  exams awaited. When  she  consulted  her  doctor  with  abdominal pain  and  vomiting one  month  back,  neither Shilna  nor  her  parents  had  had  ever  throught  of  the  possibility  of  the  worst  disease.  But  things  got  complex  when  the  scan  report  showed  a  huge  lump  in  her  abdomen  arising  from  the  left  ovary. she  was  immediately taken  up  for  a  surgery  and  the  reports  showed  a  deadly  cancer.

SHILNA'S  BATTLE  BEGINS  HERE..
She  was  then  referred  to  a  cancer  specialist,  where  further  tests  showed  another  lump  in  her  chest  from  where  the  doctor  says  the  disease  has  spread  to  her  abdomen.  Final  reports  confirmed  Ewings  family  of  cancer  which  is  a  fatal cancer. She  was  immediately  started  on  chemotherapy  after  whgich  her  initial  symptoms  have  subsided. Her  doctor  has  advised  surgery  for  the  lump  in  the  chest  and  radiotherapy  along  with  continuation  of  chemotherapy.  After  initial  doom  and  gloom  Shilna  has  now  shown  the  resilience  to  fight  the  misfortune  and  there  is  a  ray  of  hope  in  her  eyes.

FAMILY  HAS  NOW  RUN  OUT  OF  ANY  FUNDS.
Shilna's  father Ramesh  is  a taxi-driver  the  sole  breadwinner  of  the  family. Whatever  money  the  family  could  arrange  they  have  already  spent  on  her  treatment  and  there  is  not  even a  single  option  left.  Her doctor  says  for  completion  of  therapy  she  requires  an  amount  of  11,00,000 (Eleven  lakh  rpees). If  the  treatment  gets  interrupted  the  chance  of  cure  comes  down drastically. Her  parents  have  no  idea  how  to  raise  this  amount.

PLEASE  HELP  THIS  GIRL  TO  FIGHT  CANCER
For  Shilna  to  continue  her  battle  against  cancer  she  needs  your  support. This  is  a  sincere  request  to  all  good-hearted  people  to  support  this  unlucky  girl.  If  we  can  restore  the  smile  on  her  face  that  would  be the best  thing  we  could  offer  a  fellow  human.

Dear All,
This is Dr. Durga Prasan. I am the treating Medical Oncologist managing Shilna's case. Thank you very much for your generous help, and I hope you continue to support and pray for SHilna.
Shilna was started on chemotherapy and has completed 2 out of planned 17 cycles of chemotherapy. In between, she developed and unexpected and unrelated surgical problem leading to intestinal obstruction involving her small bowel. Our surgery team has successfully operated upon her and relieved her of the intestinal obstruction, though she continues to need intensive care. We will resume her chemotherapy as soon as she recovers from her surgical problem.
In the meantime, an early scan done shows her tumour is responding very well to the two chemotherapy she has received so far. These are early days, but I am sure that with the support of her family and kind hearted friends like you, we will be able to get her out of this dangerous phase in her life.
Many thanks once again.
