Thank you and update on Bir Bahadur
April 23, 2016
Bir Bahadur Basnet is a wonderful friend, husband, and a father. He and his wife Tara Basnet have been married for 14 years and have a beautiful daughter and a wonderful son. He works in New Road, Kathmandu @ Bishal Bazar as a Sales Assistant . He rents a flat in Kupondole, Kathmandu. He had his own little world and a happy family until things took turn for the worse. On 29th December 2015, while working, he felt dizzy and started coughing blood .He was afraid of the medical costs and did not bother to go see a doctor. But as the coughing continued, he felt very sick, and finally gave in and went to see a doctor. After checkups, he was told that he had a liver cancer on 2nd January 2016. He has been going through chemotherapy for a couple of months now. He has had 3 chemo sessions (15 Jan, 5 Feb and 26 Feb) so far. During chemo sessions, he has been staying in the hospital for 5 days at a time which sure racks up the bills. He is missing time with the family, and missing a lot of time from work and getting behind on bills now. He is staying positive about the whole situation but it is getting more and more difficult for him to work after returning home from chemo each time. Medical expenses are very high in Nepal especially for chemo treatment. He still needs to go through a few more chemotherapy sessions and he needs our support. Anything helps, even if it is just a few dollars! I am grateful for all those that can help to make this easier on him and his family. Please share with everyone you know. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
