THE STORY:

It was in the year 2008 when my father was diagnosed with Laryngeal Cancer. I still remember the day when my mom walked into my room and said- "your dad has cancer". I didn't know what to do or say. I didn't know if I should cry or stay strong for my parents. I only had few minutes to make my decision since he was sitting in the living room expecting me. I decided to stay strong. I walked up to him, hugged him and told him- "it will be okay". That's all I could say.

His cells were very aggressive therefore, they multiplied at an enormous rate giving him only a year with all of us. He lost his speech after the surgery and went through endless sessions of chemo and radiation therapy. My mother and I witnessed each and every moment of his life from the day he was diagnosed to the day he took his last breath, Sept 19th 2009. The experience made me a very strong person and I now look at life with a whole new perspective. Everyday I hear somebody being diagnosed with this monster disease. Enormous efforts are being made to fight it. Endless donations and fund raising events are being created for it. I too want to start my own journey for this cause but I need you all to support me.

Please help me reach my goal. Be it $1, $5, $10, every penny counts. I would like to raise this money by Sept 19th, my dad's 4th year death anniversary.

I would really appreciate your help and support on this.

Thank you so much
Samridhi (Sam)
