My name is VANDANA AGARWAL and I am a teacher at the DPS Bangalore North, Yelahanka.
My fellow teachers & I got to know about crowdfunding and how we can help children suffering from Cancer who come from the economically weaker classes of society. It definitely sounded like something I would want to do. Cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents around the world and is devastating for both the child and their family.
While all of us complain about how things around us need to improve, very few of us actually get to do something about it. It's all talk and no action. Thanks to the tie-up with Rotary the cost of intensive treatment for chemotherapy (that is what we are funding) is done at cost of just 6000 INR per month for a child over a 12-month period. This is versus a very high cost of between INR 2.5 to 5L for the same treatment at other hospitals. I have undertaken this campaign because I don’t think children belong in hospitals.
My aim is to raise INR 9000 to support a child for 45 days. ( since INR 6000 per month is the cost).If we can raise 18000 INR we can fund the treatment for 3 months and so on. 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 on social media.
