Help a poor cancer patient with radiation therapy

Impact

You can help a poor child with cancer get the treatment they need

When Sandip was 8 years old, he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system.

His father had passed away and the only breadwinner of the family was his mother. She worked as a daily wage labourer on a farm. Her earning was not even enough to scrape together food for both of them.

The doctors said that Sandip could make a complete recovery. But there was no way for his mother to put together the money for his treatment. She was utterly devasted at the thought that she might lose her only ray of hope because she could not afford to pay for his treatment.

Charutar Arogya Mandal discovered her case and took full responsibility of Sandip’s treatment. They paid for his radiation and chemotherapy until he was completely cured. Sandip and his mother now have a future to look forward to all thanks to the donors who helped them.

Donate now to help an underprivileged child like Sandip fight cancer. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED. Your donation will pay for the child’s treatment.

Story from the field

Jigneshbhai lives in Vadodara with his monther, wife Hiralben, teenage son Jaymin and daughter Shitiksha. He gets up early in the morning and has to leave home in time to pick up the school children on a door-to-door basis and safely take them to school in the Van which he drives. Hiralben is very supportive as she gets up at 5 o'clock and prepares breakfast. After Jigneshbhai leaves, she gets Shitiksha ready for school. She also has to take care of her old mother-in-law. Jigneshbhai enjoys the company of his friends who are in a similar profession. Because of the monotonous nature of their work, many of them sit and smoke when they meet. That's how Jigneshbhai began smoking. His wife was not very happy to see him smoke and kept advising him to stop. But the addiction was strong so he could not resist the urge. In May 2018, Jigneshbhai had extreme throat pain & had difficulty in swallowing. He felt uneasy & could not focus on his driving. So he took few days leave, took rest at home but the pain continued. They came to Shree Krishna Hospital, Karamsad for medication. The doctor suggested Biopsy. Biopsy reports revealed that he had Cancer of Right PFS & AEF, and his right lung was affected. The Oncologist advised that he must undergo a treatment regime of chemotherapy and regular Radiotherapy. He is presently admitted at Shree Krishna Hospital, Karamsad for treatment and under nasogastric feeding. Since he is the only earning member in the family and earns a very nominal income, further treatment is beyond their means. With tears Hiralben checked with the doctor whether they could get some help. Considering their socioeconomic profile, the Mandal decided to take the responsibility to support Jigneshbhai for his Cancer treatment at subsidized rates with the support from generous donors like you. He is undergoing Radiotherapy cycles and responding well to the treatment. Both Jigneshbhai and his wife Hiralben are thankful to all donors who have contributing towards his treatment.

#1

Around 2000 residents of Anand, Vidyanagar and Karamsad participated in the third healthy heart Walkathon organized by Charutar Arogya Mandal on the occasion of Bhanubhai and Madhuben Patel Cardiac Centre’s Foundation Day at the Shree Krishna Hospital in October. The purpose behind the walkathon was to create awareness about the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. An exclusive library, The Knowledge Centre was built for the students of the Pramukh Swami Medical College and other educational institutions managed by the Mandal. World Diabetes Day was celebrated at Shree Krishna Hospital on 14 November 2017 with the theme 'Woman and Diabetes', on the occasion of which, female employees of the Mandal were addressed on care, treatment and preventive measures for Diabetes. Six students of the MBBS 2012 batch of the Pramukhswami Medical College got together and donated a wheelchair to the Cancer Centre from their savings, after performing at the annual cultural event of their college on a Cancer related theme, where they used a wheel chair as a prop. When they had clinical postings in the Palliative Care and ICU, they felt this would be the best way to make a difference.
