Family, Friends and Well Wishers,
I(Madhuri Kaniki) am trying to raise funds for my mother's blood cancer treatment, which came as a complete shock to us. As she was suffering from dengue fever for couple of weeks and we came to know that the fever was due to blood cancer with no time to process feelings, emotions or options.
I am Madhuri daughter of Jyothi aged 48, who is the beneficiary of this campaign. I will use the fund for my mother's medications, ICU, Chemotherapy treatments.
It all started a few weeks ago with a dengue fever, it continued to persist and she began feeling weak and tired after any physical exertion. she is always in high spirits, full of life and a positive outlook on life. she always helped those around her in any way possible without expecting anything in return.
At first, She was admitted in Neelima Hospital, Hyderabad for two weeks consistently to take treatment for Dengue fever. As there was continuous blood platelets drop they suspected some serious issue and made bone marrow biopsy which revealed a type of blood cancer
"ACUTE LEUKEMIA". Doctor suggested us to move her immediately to Yashoda cancer institute,Hyderabad. Dr. Ganesh - One of the best hematologist oncologist is treating her currently. After another round of tests, Doctor has suggested 6 Chemos( 6 injections - 3 will be paid by me and 3 will be sponsored by hospital exclusive of all other charges). But after 1st chemo , we didn't see much progress, instead she is still losing blood platelets and doctors keep infusing. Also as her WBC count is only 400 which cannot be infused externally, my mom's body is unable to fight and she has consistent fever for which expensive injections are being given continuously.
So far I have paid $28000 with the help of friends for her treatment and anticipating another $25000-$30000 at this point based on current situation.
She needs helping hands to undergo treatment as we put up this GoFundMe page. We wish we could do something rather than wipe our tears and be scared for her.
We decided to put this page as the road ahead is going to be exceedingly difficult for me and my family. As am the only bread winner in my family, I am unable to afford all of the costs she is about to accrue. Also no insurance company are willing to cover this cancer treatment in India.
Please Pray for my mother.... This GoFundMe account is to help my mother to go through this tough time. we would greatly appreciate any kind of support,not just monetary. Please consider donating what you can. Your prayers,thoughts, and energy will go a long way and give us great humble support.
