Mother Of Two Is Fighting Breast Cancer, Her Husband Makes An Earnest Appeal To Save Her.

"If I would have been in her place, I would have been dead already. Lotika is a fighter, I don't know where she gets all her strength from".

All throughout her life, Lotika has been struggling hard to take care of every member of the family. But now she needs help to fight against the deadly disease. It started with a small lump but much before they could start her treatment, Lotika was diagnosed with cancer.

We never imagined she could get cancer

In December 2016, Lotika had a small lump in the breast area. But we had no idea that it might turn into a cyst soon. 

Initially, she started with ayurvedic treatment but within a couple of months, the lump started to spread to the armpit. Her husband, Arup rushed to the local hospital in Guwahati and got some devastating news- Lotika has cancer.

"When I was told that Lotika was suffering from cancer, I felt as if the world has come to an end. I couldn't move, couldn't speak. I became a stoic".
Arup wanted his wife to be treated in the best possible ways. It was the faces of his children- Harshita and Ritapal kept him going. They are too young to understand the importance of the word ‘CANCER’.

At 47, Arup works for a private company to earn 15000 monthly. It is not enough to run this family and manage her medical expenses.

Lotika was the sole supporter of the entire family

 In 2005, when Arup's father was in a critical state post a surgery. Lotika was there throughout to support him.  Soon, Arup's mother fell ill and started to lose her memory. She was bedridden for more than a year. Lotika struggled each moment to take care of them. 

"I still remember those days, when she would always put that extra effort for their betterment. She had one-year-old Harishita to look after also, but hardly can I remember her to complain. I believe her to be a real fighter", says Arup.

Although they struggled to clear their debts, they were happy. But the joy was short-lived. In 2016, Arup met with an accident and was hospitalized for more than 2 months.
It was again Lotika who came to his rescue. Taking care of Arup along with her two young children wasn't easy at all. "She is my support system. I don't know what to do without her!", says Arup.

She tries to smile and comfort us but deep down we know she is in pain

“I may have 1000 problems but I am not going to let anything get in my way. I want to work hard. I want to live for my family.”, says Lotika

Lotika is struggling to breathe at times. The chemotherapy has terrible side effects. She has vomiting, dysentery, blisters in his mouth. Yet, she is strong-willed. She tries to smile and comfort us.
Lotika underwent 5 cycles of chemotherapy till now. And needs another a couple of more. The family needs over 5 lakhs to save her.
