Ms. Priya Pandit a 21yrs old student from Kashmiri Migrant Settlement Jagti in Jammu, presented to us with bleeding gums and patches all over her body.
A brisk investigation revealed her suffering from Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APML). This uncommon blood cancer is uncommon life threatening and offers long term survivals when treated robustly. Our Onco Hematology team at Apollo Cancer Institute are trying their best. However, Economic unsustainability is a challenge for this family. We appeal for financial donations towards her cost of treatment which is approximately 15-20 Lakhs INR.
37 year old Bhairab Shet is the father of two young children. He was diagnosed with soft tissue Sarcoma of the left jaw bone. He underwent left hemimandibulectomy surgery and Radical neck dissection in April 2016, followed by 6 cycles of chemotherapy. The cancer remained under control till he developed skeletal metastasis in Oct. 2017. He is still under treatment and requires injections every month, besides other costs. His job as an office peon does not pay him enough to take care of his family as well as this expensive treatment.
