Helped Dikshit Fight Cancer

10-year-old Dikshit is currently undergoing Chemotherapy for advanced cancer of the Kidney. Below is the statement from Dr. Shashidhar V. Karpurmath, Prof and HOD, Dept of Oncology, Vydehi Hospital.

"Master Deekshit (hospital no, 6354933) is a case of advanced Wilms tumor. He requires salvage chemotherapy 3-4 cycles of ICE (ifosphamide/carboplatin/etoposide) followed by Autologous stem cell transplant. The cost of the treatment will be approximately Rs. 50,000 x 4 + 4,00,000 = Rs. 6,00,000/-"

His father, Mr. Shivanand does odd jobs such as repairs and used to earn around Rs. 5000 per month. His mother used to work as an Aaya at the government school, earning Rs.2500 per month. Dikshit is the only child, a very bright and academically good student. However, for the last 10 months, he has not been able to go to school and both parents have had to quit their jobs to take care of him. So currently the family is not earning any significant amount. He is currently undergoing treatment at Vydehi hospital.

We have personally spoken to Dr. Roshan who is treating the boy. He informed us that the initial Chemotherapy costs have been covered under Ayushman Bharat.

But now, they will require an additional amount of Rs. 6 lakhs for 2nd line Chemotherapy treatment and transplant. This part is not covered under Ayushman Bharat. We need to raise this amount in 2 weeks.

How Right To Live is helping:

As per our background verification, Dikshit’s family members cannot afford the cost of this treatment. The ‘Right To Live’ team is trying to raise funds for the Dikshit’s continued treatment.

Please remember that 100% of your donation goes to the Dikshit’s treatment. We don’t use any part of donations for admin expenses, since those costs are covered by our trustees. The payment is released only to hospitals and not placed in patients’ hands. So, please come forward and lend a helping hand in supporting Dikshit to get proper medical treatment.
