    Suchita Naik

    from Karwar, Karnataka

My name is Puneet Naik & the patient is my mother who is suffering from stage 4 Lung cancer. She was diagnosed with lung cancer from TATA memorial hospital mumbai a year back and with doctors advise molecular testing was done to know whether she was ALK positive patient which is required to start with oral medicine called Ceritinib to stop further spread of cancer instead of Chemotherapy which would make her more weak.

As the cancer had involved her brain with PET & MRI scans showing brain mets her pain was intolerable so we immediately started the treatment at HCG cancer hospital mumbai with whole brain Radiotherapy as her health was deteriorating which helped her to get some relief from pain upto some extent. After undergoing initial treatment at Mumbai she was referred to HCG cancer hospital hubli, Karnataka for further treatment.

As she was ALK positive which is required for starting Oral medicine instead of Chemotherapy later at HCG hubli she was prescribed with medicine named Ceritinib capsules which costs around Rs.78,000 per month which was so expensive & difficult for a common person to afford. From past one year we have spent more than Rs.10,00,000 on her medical bills & as her body was responding well to the treatment with said medicine Ceritinib, we did not lose hope & were puchasing the medicines regularly every month with all our savings and resources from friends and family untill last month we were left with no funds to continue the treatment to stop further spread of the cancer. From past one month we are not able to arrange the funds & she is with no medicine & treatment. As its stage 4 cancer it has involved her spine too & we are in urgent need of the medicine to continue the treatment as her health is deteriorating.

I have uploaded few supporting documents with medicine prescription & details for reference

People please come forward to support & help my mother live more & add years to her already shortened life.
Any contribution will be of immense help.
