Originating from a village approximately 100 km from Banaras, Kamlesh Chauhan, a tailor by profession, is responsible for his two sons, daughter and wife. After losing his younger son from suicide, Kamlesh strove to keep his family away from recurrent sorrows and stressful financial responsibilities. Sadly, Kamlesh lost this battle when he was diagnosed with Spindle Cell Sarcoma.
After suffering from itching that was occurrent throughout Kamlesh’s body for over a year, Kamlesh was led to a routine checkup with a local doctor. This doctor prescribed Kamlesh routine medications and as a result, no improvement was seen. Six months later, Kamlesh developed a lump on his left shoulder. A local surgeon advised a blood test and biopsy and post-operatively sent the sample of his tumor to a histopathology lab in Banaras. The results revealed Spindle Cell Sarcoma leaving Kamlesh with one option: traveling to the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai for a more effective treatment.
In order to arrange for the expenses at the Tata Memorial Hospital at Mumbai, Kamlesh used his monthly income of Rs. 1500, took a loan on interest and borrowed money from relatives, friends and various trusts. These funds, approximately Rs. 1,00,000, were short-lived and only covered the cost of the initial phase of Kamlesh’s treatment. In order to complete the advised six cycles of chemotherapy needed for Kamlesh’s treatment, Kamlesh is in need of an additional Rs. 1,25,000. Upon completion, Kamlesh wishes to return to his hometown, be reunited with his wife and children and help support his family once again, financially. He hopes, especially, to prevent any potential strain his disease may have inflicted upon the completion of education for all three of his children.
