Help Dipanjan Beat Stage 4b Cancer

Dear friends,

We need your help. My 22 year old cousin Dipanjan just relapsed with Stage IV-B cancer. The treatment is prohibitively expensive, and he needs 7,500,000 rupees (approximately $120,000) for his treatment.  We're trying to raise a portion of that to help him defray the total costs.

Dipanjan lost his father to the same kind of cancer when he was just 12 years old, leaving behind just Dipanjan and his mother. Despite losing the only source of income in his family, my cousin fought hard and studied hard to become an engineer one and half years ago. Unfortunately, life took a devastating turn; in December 2016, Dipanjan was diagnosed with cancer. He and his mother are now battling the same disease that took away his father.  His mother is a home-maker and his family does not have any source of income apart from the savings his father left behind more than a decade ago.  

The money we're raising goes towards his salvage chemo-immunotherapy. Part 1 of this treatment is brentuximab vedotin + bendanustine for 3 to 5 cycles which costs 35 to 40 lakhs rupees (~$55-62k). Part 2 is allogenic stem cell therapy which costs 30-35 lakhs rupees (~$46-55k). 

Please help us help Dipanjan by donating whatever you can, and by sharing this campaign. Time is of the essence. A 22 year old kid shouldn't have to battle for his life like this, and especially not while worrying about finances. Beyond that, no mother deserves to have her husband and her only child taken away by the same disease. Lets beat cancer together. 

Thank you so much for any contributions you can make.
