Help My Friend to Fight Cancer

My friend, Bashabi Barua, vibrant, smart, full of life. She is a lecturer at a public university named the University of Chittagong in Bangladesh. She joined there three years ago and within six months of her joining, she was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer at the age of only 38 years old!

With the support from family, generous friends, well-wishers and funding from the Teachers’ association of the university, she completed her treatment, a debulking surgery followed by six cycles of chemotherapy in India. All these put her life back on track but this is high grade aggressive tumour which recurred fast just in three months during the time of her first follow up. And since then, she has already got as many as 35 chemotherapies and still she is under treatment as the cancerous tumors are still there.

Apart from physical and mental frailties, the continuous treatment has had a huge strain on her financial fronts. A huge portion of support has come from her friends who are contributing her on and off. This time, the expenses seem to be growing high and her doctor in Mumbai is thinking of doing surgery as well as rounds of chemotherapy. Till date, nearly $30,000 have been spent for the treatment and her family has burnt out all the options they have. 

Please help my friend. Please give her the opportunity to be in this world. I have personally tried to raise money for her and managed raise some to pay her previous treatment bills which we were hoping would be the last but cancer has another plan. I am asking for help and I am happy to ask for help as I know many people can help and every contribution matters. Your contribution will be deeply appreciated. Please do not ignore.
