Success Stories

Mr. Ishrafil Shaikh

 “ My Father Mr. Ishrafil Shaikh was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma in November 2016.  My entire family was shattered to hear this bad news. It was difficult to bear such a big amount of cost for treatment. He was advised 6 chemotherapy cycles which he completed, but one lump in his neck did not shrink and after some time it started enlarging. It was then that a biopsy had to be done again and further chemotherapy cycles were advised. I approached CARF for help in March 2017 and they provided me with Chemotherapy medicines and injections free of cost. The injections were very costly and I could hardly afford even 1 injection. Thanks to CARF that they provided us medical aid.  I appreciate the service given by the staff and am very grateful to them for the help given.”

   “Our 15 year old son, Rahul, had complaints of unexplained fever, body aches, joint pains and weakness in the year 2014. We tried to get him treated by our family doctor, but he had no relief. He was then taken to Mumbai, where he was diagnosed with Blood Cancer. We had changed 3 hospitals and the cost of treatment was too much to bear. We approached CARF for help and they helped us financially,giving us moral support that in due course if help is required, CARF can be approached.My son after undergoing 5 chemotherapy cycles has now recovered well and is under his last maintenance phase. He has resumed school and has passed his Std 10th board exams. All thanks to organization like CARF who has helped us during our difficult times”.

Master Rahul Gupta

 Master Saud Thange, a III Std boy, started complaining of terrible stomach pain. When first diagnosed the sickness could not be traced so, he was advised Sonography.  The reports revealed he had Neuroblastoma (a kind of Cancer that occurs in Children). His family was totally shattered as their financial background was very weak. They approached CARF for support. Master Saud was treated with 7 cycles of Chemotherapy pre and post surgery. Today, CARF is very happy to have helped and saved this precious child’s life. Thanks to all the wonderful donors with whose help Master Saud is now hale & hearty once again.

Master Rohan Dubey

  10 yrs old boy Master Rohan Dubey from Santacruz (E) started getting recurrent fever. When admitted in Nanavati Hospital & investigated, he was diagnosed as suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (a type of Blood Cancer). On medical grounds he was advised Chemotherapy for total recovery from cancer. His father being a small time tailor hardly earns enough to feed his family & was not able to afford such huge medical expenditure. When he approached CARF for help, he received not only financial support from CARF but was also counselled to decrease the family’s difficulties. Now Master Rohan is studying in 4th Std, attending school regularly. He enjoys a cancer free world & is often seen attending our programs organised for motivating other cancer patients.
