The first passion that I remember I developed at a younger age was dancing. My love for dancing had been enormous. Dancing was my method to express myself. Little did I know, that at the age of 25, all my dreams would drown in uncertainty after a cancer diagnosis. 

In 2018 I was told I had Biphasic Synovial Sarcoma- a rare cancer of the soft palate.

Not only did my dreams of becoming a dancer come to a striking halt, but the entire fabric of my life was altered forever. 

My happy family was shattered because of this debilitating illness.                                                                           As I consulted the doctors, I was made aware that cancer has spread to my lungs. Cancer in my lungs was fatal to my health and life. I was not willing to take any chances with my life.

I had to undergo multiple rounds of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. 

The only surprise waiting for my poor family was that the treatment would cost us a whopping amount of Rs 6 Lakh. My parents had already spent a good amount of money on my continued treatment. To make ends meet, my mother works as a cook and my humble father has an electrician’s job. 

So you see, arranging lakhs is really a big amount for a family like mine to manage. 

We had heard about Impact Guru’s crowdfunding platform. We were glad that we could have complete transparency while we raise funds on Impact Guru’s crowdfunding platform. 

We placed all our hopes on ImpactGuru and that was the right decision. 

My hopes finally came true when I received an amazing response from 308 donors who contributed and also shared my story 337 times. 

You have helped me when all hope seemed slim. But you became the beacon of light for me. Because of your generosity, I can now go back to following my dreams. Because of you, I’ll live a life free of cancer. Thank you ImpactGuru donors.
