We, Katy (71 years) and Dara (82 years) Palsetia, are the parents of Nushafreen Palsetia. Our daughter needs urgent treatment for relapsed Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL), which is a very aggressive form of cancer.
Nushafreen was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma last year in the month of April 2019. She underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment to the tonsils, which went on till November. The disease responded to the treatment. After a year of enduring aggressive treatment, positive spiritedly she tried to get back to her normal life and work, trying to put all this behind to rebuild her life.
Unfortunately, cancer relapsed in the liver in May 2020 which was an unexpected major shock, leaving her and all of us overwhelmed. Doctors planned to perform an autologous (her own stem cells) bone marrow transplant in India after the salvage chemotherapy but further tests showed involvement of the bone marrow as well. Hence, her treating doctor recommended the modern CAR-T Cell therapy treatment, finally giving us hope for a cure.
The CAR-T Cell therapy treatment is available only in the USA, UK, Israel, and a few European countries. Soon after Salvage Chemotherapy which she is taking in India, in the extremely brief period of remission she has to undergo CAR-T Cell Therapy and/or Bone Marrow Transplant.
We have found Israel as the most affordable option as compared to all other countries offering the treatment. We reached out to Sheba Medical Centre in Israel which estimated the medical expenses as 200,000 USD (approx. 1.5 crore Indian Rupees). The treatment will require her to be hospitalized for a month or more for the response to treatment and immediate follow up.
We are both retired and belong to a middle-class family living a simple life with the help of our savings and some amount of our daughters' earnings.
We have exhausted her medical insurance and have utilized most of our sparse savings for her treatment last year. Besides, insurance does not cover treatments abroad. We are unable to afford the high medical expenses involved for the life-saving treatment she requires.
Since she is so young, her doctors are positive that she will make a complete recovery and lead a disease-free healthy life if she receives the recommended timely treatment.
Our daughter, Nushafreen, is an intelligent, hard-working, lively girl, employed as a software engineer. She is ready to bravely face the challenges ahead of her. Our daughter is an invaluable treasure. We humbly request your financial aid to enable us to continue her treatment, which is our only hope to save our precious daughter’s life.
