Amarnath Kanojia is a young laborer from Uttar Pradesh. The sole breadwinner of his family, Amarnath primarily uses his monthly income of Rs. 3000, to educate his two sons and to treat his old father’s leg pain.
In 2017, he discovered a lump on his right thigh. This was investigated by the local doctor, via an FNAC report. However, there was no abnormality seen. Amarnath was then advised to go to the district medical college, where a biopsy report diagnosed him with NLPHL (Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma).
He tried everything possible to find a cure. For 5 months, he received 3 cycles of chemotherapy and for 3 months later he underwent homeopathic treatment. However there was no response and by the end of this first year, Amarnath had already spent Rs 1,50,000.
Determined to get better treatment, he then decided to come to the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, where he was again put on chemotherapy. Since he no longer had the money to pay for this, he was forced to borrow Rs. 70,000 from a family friend. Unfortunately, he has now exhausted all his financial resources and needs an additional Rs. 3,00,000 to complete his treatment.
