Thank you for visiting the Go Fund me Page we have created for our dear friend Rajni Sharma. Rajni was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer n July 2015 which she was successfully treated for. In summer 2017, Rajni’s cancer rebounded and the doctors started Chemotherapy. Her body did not respond to Chemotherapy or any other drugs and unfortunately, Rajni’s cancer treatment options have now come to an end. The cancer is becoming aggressive, unresponsive and difficult to treat. We are helping them to raise money so the family can get a second opinion at the reputed MD Anderson institute in Houston, TX. While also looking for ways to get her a reference consult at any other medical insititution.
Here is a little about Rajni!
Rajni Sharma (~35 years) is originally from India. She was a middle school teacher in the state of Punjab. And came to Dallas to be with her husband and support him about 20 years ago. Together, they have worked at multiple Indian restaurants in Dallas to make a living and to provide a good life to their now 8 year old daughter. She has a loving family with her husband and an 8 year old bright girl in Dallas, TX.
In November 2017, her doctors recommended surgery to remove the cancer. She started losing a lot of weight and her health rapidly deteriorated. The doctors started the surgery and realized that the cancer is very widely spread and the surgery will not be effective and there was no excavation of the cancerous tissue.
The Doctors have given up and moved her to a hospice. However, Rajni still has hope about her life. She WANTS to live for her daughter. And her gut tells her that a second opinion may help. The problem lies with her current insurance that will not cover a second opinion. The estimate for a second opinion at MD Anderson is about $40,000. This is not considering the cost for the treatment that the institution may recommend.
Time is not on her side but what’s important is that she has HOPE…and wants to live…for her daughter...for her family! And we want to be able to give her this chance with your support.
I have personally not met a more self-respecting woman who’s heart is in the right place and wants to do well for her family. To see her this helpless today breaks our heart. Please contribute generously to keep her hope alive and get her the second opinion at MD Anderson. Anf if you know anyone that can help guide the family thorugh the insurance and medical processes, that would be even more beneficial. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
This is the season of giving. And together we can give the HOPE for LIFE!
