Story

I'm Vivek sindhav, 23 years old male, a citizen and resident of India. It has always been my endeavour to help and support my parents as they sacrifice everything for me and my studies. However, it's your kind help that is the need of the hour for us.


 I was a hard working student and dreamt of a bright future.  However, disaster struck when I was diagnosed with classic Hodgkin's lymphoma in the final semester of my engineering degree in February 2017. I've been undergoing rigourous treatment since then. Here is a brief of my  journey  with this disease till now, with the mercy of God and kind people like you.


As a first line of treatment, I had undergone Chemotherapy (ABVD – 8 cycles) followed by Radiation (36gy). About 2 months after the completion of the first line of treatment, a relapse was noticed by the doctor. Thereafter, as part of second line of treatment, initially I was administered with salvage chemotherapy (GDP – 3 cycles). After the completion of these cycles, a PET scan showed Complete Response. After receiving this report, I underwent Autologous Stem Cell Transplant on 18th July 2018 upon doctor’s advice.


My recuperation was steady and progressive before the doctor found a reason to suspect a relapse in January 2019 based on a USG. After that a PET scan and biopsy was performed to determine the presence of cancer.

All the tests have led my consulting doctor to conclude that the cancer has relapsed. In light of this occurrence, as part of further medical assistance my doctor has now advised me to take immunotherapy (Injection NIVOLUMAB), The said drug, according to my treating Dr. may become a bridge to my sole chance of  recovery from this fast spreading disease, but it comes at a cost which is beyond my reach. Approximate cost for the treatment for immunotherapy for 12 cycles would be Rs 30,00,000 (thirty lakh rupees only).  To arrange this amount is far beyond my means.


I have been fighting this disease with alot of hope and Positivity and this is the second relapse in my cancer journey. Life has been a continuous struggle considering the high Medical costs associated with treating cancer. The medical advancement done by science in beating cancer would be of no use if it is beyond the reach of patients like me. So, treatment is available and I'm a fighter, I'll be forever indebted if this platform can be used to appeal to everyone for help in raising this amount. I refuse to give up without a fight, though which is why I request you all to help me as much as you can in your own capacity. I am seeking your help in the form of donations/contributions for the procurement of this drug which will help me to lead a normal life.

Join me in my fight and help me put cancer down!  Every little contribution can help me survive. Please share this massage.
