Campaign Ended! The campaign ended on August, 26 2016
Hello, I am Nitesh Prajapat from Jaipur, Rajasthan. I graduated from IIT-Kanpur (2008-2012) and currently pursuing MBA (Batch of 2017) from IIM-Calcutta.
Studying at this prestigious university was always my dream, and I have worked hard to make my way to one of the best colleges to study where my interest lies.
Along with my studies, I also run a startup.
Why am I raising funds:
I had not been keeping well lately and I thought it must've been because of stress, managing work and studies. When my health condition deteriorated beyond a point, I got few medical check-ups done. After which we found out that I had developed a Stage 3 Cancerous Tumour. I am mentally prepared to give a tough fight to Cancer, and want to ensure I do that without hampering my work and studies. Since I come from a middle-class family and it is financially almost impossible for us to bear the expenses of the treatment - an estimate of Rs. 15,00,000 to 20,00,000.
This is where I need your support.
Cancer cannot only harm one mentally, but financially as well. We've been bearing the costs so far, but now it has become too much of a burden for me and my family to bear any further cost of the treatment. Being a middle class family, arranging for a big amount all of a sudden, has come like a shock. Unfortunately, I also do not have medical insurance to take care of any expenses. I am raising INR 15,00,000 so that we can afford for a timely treatment.
How will I use the funds:
The funds will solely be used for my treatment, covering costs of various check-ups, doctor's fees, required medicines and recommended treatments. You shall be updated about the expenses and the progress of my health on regular basis to ensure transparency.
I request all my family and friends to please come forward and help me by contributing whatever is in their capacity. All of us getting together, contributing small amounts can help me go a long way - not only overcoming the disease but keeping me determined to come back with a bang.
Thanking you all in advance.
With hopes and regards,

Thank you everyone for all the best wishes and continuous support over the last few months. My surgery was successfully done after radiation therapy. Post surgery, I had to undergo 12 cycles of chemotherapy as well. The treatment expenses varied across different phases of the treatment with 50% of the raised amount for major surgery and rest for chemotherapy and radiation therapy along with other necessary requirements.
Hoping to start the next phase of my life soon now. Once again, I am thanking everyone from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you so much for your love and affection, without your support it wouldn't have been possible to meet this huge goal amount.
I have almost reached my goal and I am sure I will be able to hit it soon.
As I go into surgery soon I am now depending on your prayers, and prayers of millions more. Please share this with as many people possible.
