Campaign Ended! The campaign ended on June, 30 2017
Hi Friends, I am making this appeal on behalf of my friend Monalisa Sarma Hazarika, who has been fighting with breast cancer since the last 3 years. She is only 38 years old and should have been enjoying her life with her two kids and a loving husband but instead life has dealt her a cruel blow.
All her close friends know her as a spirited, vivacious and an intelligent woman who loves music and likes to pen her thoughts in poetry. She is from Namrup ,Assam and was a bright student of HFC Model School and then went on to do her Masters and graduated MA (Second Class first) and M Ed (First class first). She has been fighting this disease with all her might and limited resources.
She was diagnosed with HER2 in 2014 which is a particularly aggressive form of cancer and has already gone through 8 cycles of chemotherapy and then 17 doses of antibodies (Herclon) to stop the recurrence. But still was not enough to stop the progression of the disease. Now she has been advised to go into advanced treatment and take Kadcyla. These treatments are not only painful and tough on the body but also very expensive. She needs 6 injections each costing 2.5 lakhs each. For people like us who come from typical Indian middle class families all we have are our savings. Her husband and family have already spent 25 lakhs on her treatment till date which has basically wiped out her and her father’s lifetime savings. She needs another 20-25 lakhs for her subsequent treatment.
Please help a mother fight for her children.
