After Mark John Gaitley’s unfortunate demise, the hospital wouldn’t release his body the last rites, until his family cleared his medical expenses.

Mark John Gaitley battled cancer valiantly for 3 years before the illness took his life. After his death, all Mark’s family wanted was to give him a full burial, but the hospital wouldn’t release his body until all his treatment expenses were settled. The family had been in financial distress for a while, struggling to pay off the expenses. After much coaxing, Mark’s body was released by the hospital, with the condition that all the expenses be settled by 4th March, 2017. 

They needed Rs. 3,65,000 to clear the dues at the hospital, and watching them struggle to arrange the money, one of Mark’s friend started a crowdfunding campaign via Impact Guru’s online platform.
