I, Shuvo have started this Fundraiser on behalf of my colleague Amandeep Kaur. In October 2017, she was diagnosed with CML (Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia). With prescribed medicines, she was able to lead a normal life. She rarely took time off from work and continued giving her best at all times. Unfortunately, on 13th May 2020 she was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukaemia). This is an aggressive and life-threatening form of Blood Cancer which requires intensive chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. She was admitted at Westmead Hospital from June 2020 to October 2020 for three cycles of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, after the third cycle of chemotherapy, infection spread to her liver, kidney and other vital organs. She had to be moved to the ICU and she remained there for three weeks. The entire treatment cost her close to $100K and though her Health Insurance paid most of it, she still had a 30K out of pocket expense.
Amandeep has to continue with her treatment and this huge financial burden she cannot bear singlehandedly. The bone marrow transplant alone will cost her $40K. In her current condition she cannot work and has no other source of income. I urge all of you to make a donation and help raise the required funds so Amandeep can have her bone marrow transplant and hope for her life to get back as close to normalcy as possible.
