Dear Friends, As some of you might already know, Indira, has been battling with pancreatic cancer. This is a life-threatening condition and whole family is very scared. Indira is a mother of two beautiful young girls (8yrs & 10yrs) who are very attached to her. We are all praying that she can fight and come out of this dreadful disease. She was initially diagnised on June 15 2015 with stage 2 pancreatic cancer with tumor on pancrease head and near by blood vessels. She underwent close to 10 chemos and had whipple surgery couple months back. Even after the surgery, she went through 6 more chemo sessions to get rid of any residual cancer cells. Surgery raised her spirits to get back to her normal life but unfortunately recent scan results showed Metastasis where the cancer had spread through the abdomen and it is in stage 4. She has health insurance which will cover partial amount for the treatment. Her husband, who is the main source of income lost job around same time during her diagnosis and managed until now for the treatment and other expenses. Its becoming very challenging for the family to meet the treatment costs and other medical expenses. We are also looking for few promising treatments in Bangalore(India) and clinical trails here. We are asking for any donation that you can make to help Indira in overcoming this hurdle. Whatever you can give will be welcomed and received with deep appreciation. Thank you for your support.
