Story

We are a small and young family of 3 - my wife Shipa(aged 27 years), myself Ashish(37 years), and our 4-year-old son Ayushman living in Sinthee More in Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

We were living in our own small world with a modest dream to provide our little son Ayushman with the best possible life we could. I am a medical representative by profession and Shilpa is a housewife. Our dreams were small and solely focussed on raising our son who dreams to change the world through medical research.

Shilpa is a simple, modest lady who loves to delight people around her and share happiness with everyone. Ayushman loves drawing, his plants, and dotes on his mother.  

In early March 2022, my wife Shilpa developed severe fever, fatigue, and nausea for which we went for consultations with a number of local physicians and hospitals. She was initially diagnosed with pancytopenia, and further referred to advanced treatments as the initial treatments were not effective. During the treatment with Apollo hospitals, Chennai, she was declared to have acute myeloid leukemia(AML) requiring advanced treatments. Upon further diagnosis, she has been diagnosed with Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm(BPDCN), a rare clinically aggressive hematologic malignancy that most commonly manifests as cutaneous lesions with or without bone marrow involvement and leukemic dissemination. This is found only in 1 out of 10,000 blood cancer patients.
We were completely devastated by what has happened with Shilpa, but she has by far stayed strong with her zest to fight and fulfill her dreams with her son.

I have completely exhausted my savings of 2 lakhs to support her treatment in addition to the medical insurance payout of 3 lakhs. My friends and a few family members have extended support to me during these difficult times to help additionally raise 3 lakhs to support the preliminary treatment so far. The doctors at Tata Medical center, Kolkata have recommended treatments that would additionally require a sum of 55 lakhs, which is beyond my capability to raise. The breakup of the treatment cost is as follows -
  • 40 lakhs for bone marrow transplant including donor costs 
  • 10 lakhs for chemotherapy for 1 year 
  • 5 lakhs for other hospital and related charges
I need your help to get her the treatment possible at this stage of her ailment. It is unimaginable how life could be for me and my young son without her. We would be grateful for our life if you come forward and support Shilpa help Ayushman realize his dreams. Any contributions would truly matter to us.

Eternally grateful,
Ashish
