Udupi: Appeal - 49-year-old Sunil Fernandes seeks help for medical treatment

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SB)

Udupi, Apr 20: A 49-year-old man, who should have been taking responsibility of his family like other heads of the family, is fighting for his life instead.

Sunil Fernandes, a resident of Badanidiyoor, Thottam here, had many dreams for his family. He wanted to provide good education for his daughters studying in primary school. He was determined to make his dreams a reality through hard work. Unfortunately, luck was not in his favour. In the month of November last year, one morning, he suddenly felt weak and experienced problems while breathing. After a specialized medical check-up, he was diagnosed with oral cancer. Later, he was compelled to undergo regular surgeries and chemotherapy.

Now, Sunil is undergoing specialized treatment in Kasturba Hospital, Manipal. He is in the fourth stage of cancer and fighting for life. The cost of treatment exceeds approximately Rs 50,000 per month.

Sunil's family has already spent over Rs five lac over medical expenses. Now they are unable to afford the hospital expenses. They are under immense pressure. If the required surgeries are not performed, Sunil may have to suffer for life.

The family members are now helplessly watching in dismay as Sunil's health is deteriorating with each passing day. They are now seeking financial help from willing donors to provide treatment for Sunil. They hope his treatment continues and he can lead a normal life again.

Those who wish to donate and help Sunil may send their contributions to the following bank account details:

    I know him personally. He is a very very good human. He didn't had any bad habits. He is always motivated towards his family and their happiness. I was shocked when i got this news in last December. Everytime i ask question to god: Why him??? I am sure god will answer with his recovery. I plead everyone who can help him financially please go ahead. Let us all keep him in our prayers.

    Unfortunately there is no proper cure or treatment for Cancer in Allopathy, chemotherapies do not help but only make it worse for the patient. Alternate treatments like healing or yoga may help to some extent.

    Rahul Jeppu,do you know what you are writing?Yoga ?Now in fourth stage.?Second when one person is suffering with cancer ,whatever the stage is,absolutely has no immunity,is very weak ,then with chemotherapy person is hardly able to stay off.May the good Lord give him now some strenght to bear his pain and some help from donors .Wish his family to be strong in this situation to help his recovery .So feel sad to see him in this situation .Chemotherapy helps depends n which stage and have to suffer a lot during this .Depends on also on which part etc.Person looses weight ,no taste ,and mainly mental stress.feel weak even after the therapy ends .wish him good luck and fast recovery.May God give him his blessings .

    Some times I think why God allow us for suffering. Still I believe in god's plan. When Joseph was put in pit and sold to ismailites. He didn't blame his brothers when he met them in Egypt. He told to his brothers God is responsible for all this. Today also for Sunil it is god's plan for him. Through his suffering may his family will come more closer to God. Nothing has happened in Sunil life. Even the hairs of head God has counted means this is nothing for lord This sickness is not unto death but for the manifestation of god's glory.John11:4
