Hargobind has left us with fond memories of his gentle compassionate spirit and great sadness that he left so young. He left behind his wife, Dalveer, who is just 35 years old. During Hargobind’s initial diagnosis, Dalveer was a new immigrant to the USA from England and had just re-started her career in Public Health. Dalveer dedicated her time and energy as the primary carer of Hargobind for the past 2.5 years, while trying to hold down a job to ensure he always had the best available health insurance.
Studies have shown that the average 6 month cost for cumulative post-surgery expenses for brain cancer can be $184,107 among patients who received both chemotherapy and radiation. Hargobind received a cocktail of two chemotherapy treatments for his last 9 months and received his last brain surgery exactly two months prior to his passing.
Hargobind had eight surgeries in the last 2.5 years along with many different non FDA approved treatments, which have additional costs and countless doctor office visits. We are thankful to everyone for contributing in the campaign last year which helped us to pay off bills from the first two years.
We are starting this new campaign to help his wife with the incoming medical expenses from the last few months. As the tumor grew and his body rejected the treatment, Hargobind was rushed numerous times into emergency room visits and subsequently into hospice care.
The medical bills from his treatments and care are still coming in and piling up. The hospital has refused to forgive any of the bills.
During this incredibly difficult time, we are requesting your assistance to ease off some of the financial burden from medical care and end of life expenses. We would appreciate any assistance you can provide in this effort.
