The family of Chandrika Purohit are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

Chandrika was diagnosed with breast cancer in early 2010. With various types of cancer-related treatments and therapies, she went into remission by end of year 2010 and did not require surgery. We were all encouraged and so thankful with this wonderful news. However, in March 2012, there was a turn of events and Chandrika's breast cancer returned. She has stage 3 cancer and it is now in a few of her lymph nodes as well. The doctors have immediately set her up for chemotherapy, which she has been doing since this past April. In addition to chemotherapy, Chandrika will require a mastectomy to remove the cancerous tumor and tissue in its entirety. Following surgery, she will need to undergo further post-operation radiation to make sure all cancer cells/tissue are removed from her body. As you can imagine, this has taken a toll on Chandrika both physically and mentally. For those of you who have known her long, she has always been a go-getter and fighter in life. This cancer has really changed her life drastically and has put a huge burden on her shoulders. Chandrika is unable to work due to the frequency of her breast cancer treatments and appointments. In addition to this, her husband is retired and unable to look for any type of work because he needs to be with Chandrika at home or at appointments. Because of their current situation, neither of them have any additional income coming in to help with their medical bills and expenses. Insurance has expired with Chandrika being on disability and supplemental insurance is not affordable for either of them with their need to pay for all other cancer-related expenses at the moment. Chandrika is in the battle of her life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from her. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

God Bless,

Chetna Macwan
