This project is a fundraiser for our beloved Aunt 'Zainab Rangwala' who has been recently diagnosed by a Breast Cancer.
She is currently living with her husband at their Mumbai - India home. She is a mother of two daughters, both of them are now married and living separately with their own family. Her husband - my ever jolly uncle Husseini, is a retired serviceman and they both currently have no regular incoming income. They are just surviving on their retirement savings and this sudden cost of treating Cancer will definitely take a toll on the family.
Just the Hospital and Surgery cost (abatement of right breast) estimates are attached below, which is coming around ~3 Lacs INR (~4000 USD). The surgery needs to happen ASAP in order to stop its spread.
This is not inclusive of other continuous treatments like:
- Biopsy and Autopsy
- Harmone Therapy
In total, the final cost is estimated to be around 5 Lacs INR (~$6800 USD)
My aunt has always been my second mom, no matter what's the time she is always there to pick my call and hear my nagging. Her love, advice and support has helped me immensely through out the years, way more than she realizes. Been lived with her in a joint-family (same house) during my childhood and knowing her entire my life; I know she would never ask for any help upfront. She is one proud, self-respected and very shy person however I'm determined to help her as much and wherever I can.
Hence, I'm creating this fund raiser to amplify the call and asking all family and friends to pitch-in. Every small contribution counts so please don't hesitant in contributing whatever you can. Most importantly please share within your family and friend circle and do remember her in your prayers.
She is a fighter and am confident she will win this battle too. I can't wait to meet her and hug her soon.
