Mrs. Shipra Ghosh Needs Your Urgent Support In Fighting Breast Cancer

Mrs. Shipra Ghosh, residing at Nutan Para, Ward no. 6, Jalpaiguri, West Bengal, was diagnosed with breast cancer (Invasive Carcinoma of Breast) and on the advice of a local doctor here, we rushed her to the Tata Medical Centre, New Town, Kolkata where we were told by the doctors that her treatment would require cycles of chemotherapy, followed by surgery, radiotherapy along with Trastuzumab injections and the entire expenditure would amount to Rs 6,80,000 approximately (excluding the expenditure for various tests, bed charges, medicines, other expenses etc.) over the course of 1 year. The doctors there advised us to complete the 8 cycles of chemotherapy from Siliguri Nursing Home, Hakim Para, Siliguri as it would be easier for the patient to do her chemotherapy from a nearby hospital as chemotherapy is often accompanied with side-effects. So far, with donations from her relatives and friends, she was able to complete 4 cycles of chemotherapy and now the patient is being taken to Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata for USG guided fudicial placement and check up and then she will be brought back to Siliguri Nursing for the remaining 4 cycles of chemotherapy. The patient will undergo surgery and radiation along with Trustuzumab injections at Tata Medical centre, Kolkata post completion of chemotherapy at Siliguri. For the remaining 4 chemotherapies, an expenditure of around Rs. 1,40000 is estimated (each  costing Rs. 35000 which includes Rs.12000 for chemotherapy alone and Rs. 23000 for one single Trastuzumab injection). (Note: The previous 4 chemotherapies were not accompanied by Trastuzumab injections. The injections will be given to the patient from the next cycle onwards and a total of 17 injections will be required throughout the course of 1 complete year). Once chemotherapy is completed, we are expecting assistance from PMRF, CMCRF and Tata Medical Trust (only if these grants are sanctioned on time) for completion of the remainder of the treatment at Tata Medical Center, Kolkata. But no such assistance is available to us for the remaining chemotherapies at Siliguri Nursing Home. She also had to undergo some extra expenses as she had fallen very ill on account of low WBC count a few days back and hence had to stay admitted for nearly a week during which she was given blood transfusion and antibiotics to recover as well. Prior to her ailment, Shipra Ghosh, worked as a Grade IV employee (maid) at Saint Anthony’s School here in Jalpaiguri and earned nearly Rs. 4400 monthly. But with her being diagnosed with cancer, she could no longer continue with her work. Unfortunately, her son too have no means of earning at present and her husband works as a night guard in an apartment and earns near about Rs. 5000 monthly. Therefore, as you can see at present, their family earnings stand at Rs. 5000 per month only and therefore are at a great financial crisis and it is impossible for them to carry out my the treatment unless financial aid is granted to them from different corners of the society. Clearly, they also “cannot” afford a loan. If people come ahead and donate small amounts of money for her treatment, only then her treatment will be continued at present and she will be able to complete her remaining four cycles of chemotherapy.Your kind support can save her life.

The patient's treatment is near completion. She is on her road to recovery and is yet to receive the last 4 dosage of her trastuzumab injections, each costing Rs. 35000 from The Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata.

However, due to COVID-19, travelling is not recommended and they will have to stay at Premashraya Palliative Care Unit  upto mid November and they are completely dependent on donations from friends and relatives for their food and lodging.

The last donation will be duly transferred to the patient's bank account right now. And thank you all, it is for all of your efforts, the government funds that patient Shipra Ghosh is back on her feet and has been able to defeat a disease like Cancer. Thank you. Will be forever grateful to each one of you.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your love. Shipra Ghosh has received her fifth cycle of chemotherapy with the help of donations made by kins, neighbours and friends. She needs assistance for at least one more cycle of chemotherapy before the government funds are sanctioned for her treatment at Tata Medical Centre.

She will receive her 6th cycle of chemotherapy on 16.12.2019 and for that she needs ₹35000 (₹12000 for chemotherapy and ₹23000 for Trastuzumab injection). Her entire life's savings has been already spent. We are expecting assistance from trusts and funds after this cycle of chemotherapy is completed.

So we are now going to fund raise only for this 6th cycle of chemotherapy which is due soon and the patient has barely any money for it.  The patient and her family members are also going door to door in their hometown trying to fundraise, but that hasnt yielded much success either yet.

Her entire life's saving has been spent and she is totally dependent on her relatives. If this fundraising turns out to be successful, then she can complete her 6th cycle of chemotherapy without delay.
