Kanchan Das, a 20-year-old student, was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia after a routine check-up with a local doctor. The youngest of two brothers, Kanchan spent much of his free time helping his father, a farmer, and his mother around the house. After having a continuous fever for over two months, Kanchan’s parents took him to the local doctor where routine investigations revealed low haemoglobin and a low platelet count. The local doctor urgently ordered for a blood transfusion and referred the patient to the Kolkata NRS Hospital. After confirming the diagnosis of Acute Leukaemia, Kanchan was recommended to travel to the Tata Memorial Hospital for an opportunity for more affordable treatment.
Upon arrival, Kanchan was advised for six cycles of chemotherapy. Having already exhausted his funds arranged from selling his family’s land in West Bengal and his mother’s gold, Kanchan does not have enough money to pay for the remainder of his treatment. Kanchan is in need of an additional Rs. 2,00,000 to complete his treatment and return to his hometown. Upon completion, Kanchan wishes to return to completing his education and being able-bodied enough to return the favours to his extremely supportive family.
