I am TG Pavani. I am here to raise funds for my father, Mr. TG Raghunandan, a retired self-employed individual living with a wife and two daughters who are still studying. He was diagnosed with METASTATIC RENAL CELL CARCINOMA (RCC)/ KIDNEY CANCER, stage 3 dated 19-07-2019.
He underwent surgery (Radical Left Nephrectomy) dated 25-07-2019 in which left kidney along with the tumor was removed. From then, he was on chemotherapy to prevent further progression.
But unfortunately, a PET-CT scan on 29-02-2020 revealed metastasis (spread) of tumors to the abdomen, lungs, and shoulder bone. An immediate change of medication was prescribed and continued till May 2021.
A recent PET-CT scan dated 12-05-2021 again showed severe progression of the disease in view of which immunotherapy (Pembrolizumab/ keytruda), an intravenous injection to be given once every 3 weeks along with a daily intake of an oral drug (Axitinib). This treatment has to be taken for a continuous period of 2 years (total 35 cycles) without any further delay and interruption in between the cycles.
Immunotherapy for each cycle (i.e., for every 3 weeks) will cost Rs.1,80,000, and Axitinib for every 6 weeks will cost Rs. 70,000, totaling the amount to Rs. 75 lakhs for 2 years.
We have already spent around Rs.15 lakhs till now from our life savings. Currently, we are out of savings without any income source.We now need Rs. 75 lakhs to continue the treatment further.
Please come forward to support my family in fight with cancer. Any contribution will be of great help. Do contribute and share this campaign with friends and family.
