Abhishek is a guy my age battling cancer. He is an alumni of the Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, a Product Manager with Brittania. I was forwarded the link to his site (http://www.helpabhishek.com/) by a friend of mine. As I read through his story, I realized that this could have happened to any of us.
I know what it is like to be 30 and have a family. The money is just about enough to cover the dreams that you have dreamt and fulfil some more by the side. Am sure, this couple is not too different. They are now faced with the daunting task of raising close to Rs. 1 Crore for treating the cancer.
These folks need all the help they can get. They are educated and young, and their personal story is very similar to the life we live ourselves. Please help Abhishek if you can. The different modes for making the contribution are listed on his website.
In case you have a blog or a webpage, please carry this link on your site. Am sure, this help will not go waste.

This touched a nerve. I will surely carry this link on my blog.
Thank you so much for doing this !
Yes carrying in link also will help. What we can also do is, talk to our HR and ask them to mail and ask for contributions from whole company. Even if people contribute 500 its ok.. together we can have a good amount. I am sure all our company’s have a cell for charity. We can tell them about this and ask for help.
Ashish, this is a second such case I have come across. The first one being that of Gaurav Tondon who also suffered from a near similar disease. A similar effort was done to help raise the funds and he is now ready for the implant – http://www.helpgaurav.com.
@ Sumathi: All help will be useful I guess…
@ Renu: So good to see that Gaurav was able to gather the funds needed for his treatment !
