Fund raising for cancer battled family


Our heart is aching but heaven is one star brighter

Our heart is physically aching but heaven is one star brighter…. Many times, we wait till a friend has left us forever to tell the world what a wonderful person he was, and we are just as guilty as the next person about that. Today, we would like to pay tribute to our friend family and a good human being, as simple as us and like one of us. His name is Chetan Parikh.

Our heart is physically aching but heaven is one star brighter ….Chetan Parikh had cancer and it took less than 3 years to steal him away from his family and leaving behind his beloved wife Sheetal Parikh, daughter and son and his friends who loved him. He always challenged Cancer like a roller coaster ride sometimes he was ahead and sometimes Cancer was. Many times, we heard from doctors and nurses how strong Chetan was. We are not the only people who heard Chetan say those words over and over again - “I’m going to defeat Cancer and I’ll live longer”. To this his daughter always added hopes in the times when she could only feel; tears were the language between him and his family.


It was March 26, 2019 when the finally he surrendered and started on his final journey of liberation from humanly body. It was a great loss to Sheetal, where she lost her beloved husband, children lost their father and we lost one great person among us.

While battling with Cancer he was telling his future plans for his kids and also expressing the concerns about the financial constraints the family will pass through. While he was struggling with Cancer, his wife also had undergone a Brain Tumor surgery and hip replacement. While she is recovering from the immediate and the biggest loss of her life …let us all join our hands and support them.

After detected with Cancer and Tumor neither one of them were able to have insurance and other sources of financial help. We are going to help but would like to extend the opportunity to you as well. A gift of any amount would mean the world to Parikh family.

Please try to share this detail with your friends and family member and also the GoFundMe link … let collectively help the kids grow up to the dreams of their father……where they are challenged on daily basis … Our heart is physically aching but heaven is one star brighter….. Let’s DONATE together.
