Hi. My grandma who is 80 years old is suffering from Level 4 Cancer. Doctors have informed us that the maximum span of life left for her is 6 months. I quote the sentence from Doctor. "If we give treatment for it, she will live for 2 years but I doubt if her body can bare the pain and struggle. On the other hand, if it is left without treated, she will have pains which would require regular treatment and medication and she will be with us for 6 months”. The doctor finally added that he would be doing the latter if the patient was his mom or any close aid. Our family, decided to go on with the option 2 . Before continuing any further, I would like to brief about my family. My dad, a retired machine operator, manages his frugal expenses through his pension amount and my mom is a home maker. I have a younger sister who is pursuing her final year of academics . I being , the only earning member of the family is a 23 year old Software Engineer living in Bangalore. My grandma is currently living with my parents in Coimbatore(400 kms away from Bangalore). I would love to spend some time with my grandma at home devoting all my time for her but to take care of grandma’s medical and my family expense, I am in need of working in this job . Here is my proposal. I want to go on a sabbatical leave for a month or two(whichever gets approved by my Manager) and spend last moments with my grandma. I would be needing a frugal amount to take care of our family + medical expense of grandma during this span. I propose to get funding of 500$. Here is the split up of how I am planning to use this expense. I earn 800$ per month out of which I transfer 600$ to my dad to meet family expense and 200$ I keep it to myself to support my food and shelter. If I go home, I believe the family can manage our basic needs with 500$. Please help me fulfill my wish. Regards, Vignesh
