Jahangir Layek, a 33-year-old male, was diagnosed with cancer of the right lower buccal mucosa. Responsible for his wife, young son, four brothers and elderly parents, Jahangir’s monthly income of Rs. 3,000 barely covered the expenses of his household. After what seemed like an injury, that had been present on Jahangir’s right cheek for over seven months, Jahangir was taken to the local doctor and prescribed routine medications. After the routine medications were deemed ineffective, Jahangir was taken to Kolkata Medical College for further management. It was here Jahangir was diagnosed with his extensive disease and advised to travel to the Tata Memorial Hospital, far from his home, for further management.
Upon arrival, Jahangir was advised treatment in the form of chemotherapy followed by surgery. Having already spent Rs. 1,50,000, for the intensive phase of his treatment, Jahangir exhausted all of his funds after selling the entirety of his family’s land and utilizing the entirety of his personal savings. Jahangir is in need of an additional Rs. 90,000 to complete his treatment. Upon return, Jahangir wishes to resume his responsibility as the sole breadwinner of his household and support the education of his younger siblings and son.
