My name is Arshiya Dhiman and I am a Grade 12 student at Delhi Public School, Bangalore North.
The power to fight cancer comes from heart and soul. But most of all, it comes from being able to imagine day when you are cancer free. My classmates and I got to know about crowd funding and how we can help children suffering from cancer who come from economically weaker sections of the society. Thanks to the tie up with Rotary, the cost of intensive treatment for chemotherapy is done at a cost of just 72,000 INR per child for a 12 month period. This is versus a very high cost of between INR 3 to 5 L for the same treatment at a different hospital.
I have chosen to be a part of this campaign because I believe that every child deserves to begin his kindergarten school year with a nap, a flu shot and a backpack. My aim is to raise INR 18000 to support a child for 3 months. (Ie. INR 6000 per month).If we can raise 36000 INR we can fund the treatment for 6 months. So please do not stop funding my campaign even after we get past the goal. Please contribute generously and do support this initiative by spreading the word.
