  • Never Give Up!

    by Nitesh Prajapat on March, 21 2018



    To my family, friends and all the beautiful souls

    Our Nitesh has departed for a better place. On March 14th 10 AM (PST) our fighter moved on to a new home where he is absolved of the limitations of a physical body. For the past one month, he had been on the ventilator and had come close to death thrice in the past three days. His willpower was forever strong, his love for us ever present. But God had better plans written.

    To us, Cancer was by far the most influential teacher of our lives. It completely changed our outlook toward this brief period of existence on Earth. It made us value every single second we spent with each other and showed us that we were capable of emoting a love so pure, that we ourselves were shocked by the sheer strength of it.

    And in the end, Cancer LOST.

    Nitesh might have been taken away in the bodily form, but he still lives. His passion to defeat cancer with love and elevate the lives of people still lives. His resilient attitude that made him live for 2 whole months more, even when doctors estimated only a couple of days, still lives. And as long as we live, he lives. He lives through our actions and promises to help the rest of humankind. His legacy is indestructible as long as there is life on Earth.

    In the past couple of months, we were very lucky to come across so many kind souls who accepted us into their homes, fed and clothed us, while we fought a raging battle. People from all over the world whom I had never even met, prayed for us and put their entire effort into ensuring that we get access to the right food and medical treatment. So many individuals selflessly offered their life’s savings to give Nitesh a chance. We were blessed to be treated with so much love. The last 7 months that we spent in a Foreign land was the most comfortable and positive time of our lives. For this, we are deeply grateful to you all.

    The reason why I say that we defeated cancer is because it did not slow us down. We defeated it by looking it in the eye and putting up a fight irrespective of the consequences. Nitesh’s mission in life was to defeat cancer with love. It is now my goal to fulfill his purpose in life. He continues to live through me. Attached is the mission statement written by Nitesh on 12th Jan 2018.

    With this I would like to thank all of you for your kind words and support. Please cherish your loved ones and do not let the little things in life weight you down. It is a very precious gift and only a lucky few get to experience it. Do not waste it away.

    We are extremely proud of him for battling the disease and never ever giving up. We are honored to be his family and his love makes us strong.

    To our dear Nitesh

    This journey routinely made you feel searing physical pain, but you never winced and handled it with utmost grace. You handled bad news with extreme maturity and calmness. You managed to keep all our spirits high while enduring a severe battle. And never did you pity yourself or doubt your ability to fight. Every single day, you won.

    You showed me that our love is stronger than the mere cycle of birth and death. That our love has the power to give many others a second chance at life. My destiny was intertwined with yours because there was a greater purpose to it. The love that we share is so powerful, it can fight multiple other battles. You showed me how we can transform the destiny of so many others through the power of our love. While a big vacuum has been created in my life, I know I have to stay strong and fulfill our promise. We together grew our love, nurtured it with care and realized its true potential as we saw it grow. You are forever mine as I am yours. There will be a time when we meet again. And till then, I will carry forward with the purpose that we discovered. I will use our love to defeat cancer. 



    Forever Yours

  • Fight is On

    by Nitesh Prajapat on February, 01 2018



    Dear Well Wishers,

    We consider ourselves extremely lucky to witness so many kind people supporting us. This journey has been the scariest and most debilitating experience of our lives; and the only reason we could embark upon it was because you decided to help us. The financial, emotional and logistics aid we received helped us move to the USA, start his treatment with more potent medicines and rekindled our faith.

    As of today, Nitesh is still trying to do his best to fight the disease. He frequently undergoes spells of pain, especially in the lungs, but endures it resiliently. He constantly reminds himself of all the positivity that has surrounded him and how lucky he is to have been the recipient of prayers and love from people around the world. Our will to fight for what is truly ours; a peaceful life together, has become stronger by your support. 

    Over the course of the past few months, Nitesh and I gained immense knowledge about Cancer. Our journey was full of ups and downs and intermittent mistakes due to lack of guidance. After receiving so much unconditional support and love, we have decided to come to the aid of all those who are directly or indirectly affected by cancer. We want to prevent others from walking down the wrong path and losing out on precious time. The world has blessed us with so much, we consider it our duty to guide those affected and help save many more lives. I sincerely request you to feel free to share our story with other who are suffering. Taking care of our fellow beings is the biggest prayer of all.

    I urge you to guide people affected by cancer to reach me at the following co-ordinates:

About the Fundraiser

Nitesh, a bright alumnus of IIT-Kanpur and IIM-Calcutta is battling with final stage metastasised cancer. He was diagnosed with Stage III cancer in 2016, and recent scan report shows a development of 12 tumors in his bilateral lungs, pelvis, and abdomen. 

While doctors in India have shown less hope of recovery, Nitesh has been advised clinical trial as alternative treatment, which is only possible in USA for Nitesh's case. For someone from lower middle class family, the estimated cost of USD 500,000 is impossible to bear, and so we have come to you. 

Who is Nitesh? And what happened to him?

Eldest of all the siblings, Nitesh was the sole earning member of the family and was working hard to improve the family’s lifestyle and to provide for his brother’s education.

Nitesh’s life turned upside down when he was diagnosed with a Cancerous Tumour at Stage-3, almost an year back. Nitesh and his family, after the initial shock, were prepared to give a tough fight against the disease. His will to live was financially supported by his friends, family, batchmates and alumni of IIT and IIM, who helped Nitesh bear the initial cost of the treatment.

Nitesh, since then has been giving a tough fight against cancer, and to say the least, is very inspirational!

Until recently..

Nitesh, along with his treatment, recently completed his MBA degree from IIM-Calcutta and got happily engaged to his friend from the campus - Dimple Parmar who had been a strong support throughout his treatment.

Just when we all thought Nitesh had won over cancer, his post treatment scan of June’ 17 showed that the disease had metastasized to lungs, pelvis and other abdominal areas - a total of 12 tumors.

As we write this campaign page, Nitesh is undergoing his advanced chemotherapy. He has fought this earlier but the only difference this time is that the Indian doctors have shown less hope of recovery and this calls for immediate action to go to USA for further treatment. The life expectancy at this stage ranges from a few months to a few years.

What now?

Nitesh has been recommended for a clinical trial and immunotherapy as an alternative treatment. As per the prognosis, further treatment needs to be carried out in the USA. The cost of the treatment is expected to be around $ 500,000 (INR 3.19 Crore). 
“Being a lower 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”, Nitesh says.

For Nitesh and his family, this cost is realistically impossible to bear. However, this young, bright chap is determined to live, deservingly so. The amount is big, however, we have immense belief in the power of people. Your contribution can give Nitesh a second chance at life. We urge you to contribute your part to the campaign.

What can you do, if not contribute?

You can spread the word. Forward the link to your friends and family, give a shout out on Facebook, broadcast it on WhatsApp, tweet out to your followers. If you know of any foundations that could support us in any way, it would be a great help if you could put us in touch!
