There are times, when we’re afraid, fear runs through our vein, blood comes to eyes in the intensity of the moment; Eyes got still but hands tries to find another hand in the darkness to hold on, to make believe that you’re not alone. This sense helps to stand firmly and make steps forward and that is how humanity survives.
Humans are most beautiful species not because of mind they possess but because of heart they have that always want to connect with other hearts and cherishes when we are together and help each other to make life beautiful.
The pain of chemos increasing day by day, cancerous cells are getting hold inside his body but he still have hope…
Today beautiful heart of one of my friend is in pain, his hands are looking in the darkness to get hold of other hands, eyes want to see new light of beautiful morning. The pain of chemos increasing day by day, cancerous cells are getting hold inside his body but he still have hope not just because of his never dying spirit and positivity but also because he believes in humanity, he knows helping hands will come to hold his trembling hand and make him win this fierce battle.
We may not be connected with common experiences but we all humans are connected with common emotions.
There is no Them. There are only facets of Us. We may not be connected with common experiences but we all humans are connected with common emotions. So, helping each other is all about what the life is.

Nitesh, a bright alumnus of IIT-Kanpur and IIM-Calcutta is battling with final stage metastasised cancer. He was diagnosed with Stage III cancer in 2016, and recent scan report shows a development of 12 tumors in his bilateral lungs, pelvis, and abdomen.
While doctors in India have shown less hope of recovery, Nitesh has been advised clinical trial as alternative treatment, which is only possible in USA for Nitesh’s case. For someone from lower middle class family, the estimated cost of USD 500,000 is impossible to bear, and so we have come to you.
Who is Nitesh? And what happened to him?
Eldest of all the siblings, Nitesh was the sole earning member of the family and was working hard to improve the family’s lifestyle and to provide for his brother’s education.
Nitesh’s life turned upside down when he was diagnosed with a Cancerous Tumour at Stage-3, almost an year back. Nitesh and his family, after the initial shock, were prepared to give a tough fight against the disease. His will to live was financially supported by his friends, family, batchmates and alumni of IIT and IIM, who helped Nitesh bear the initial cost of the treatment.
Nitesh, since then has been giving a tough fight against cancer, and to say the least, is very inspirational!
Nitesh, along with his treatment, recently completed his MBA degree from IIM-Calcutta and got happily engaged to his friend from the campus – Dimple Parmar who had been a strong support throughout his treatment.
Just when we all thought Nitesh had won over cancer, his post treatment scan of June’ 17 showed that the disease had metastasized to lungs, pelvis and other abdominal areas – a total of 12 tumors.
As we write this campaign page, Nitesh is undergoing his advanced chemotherapy. He has fought this earlier but the only difference this time is that the Indian doctors have shown less hope of recovery and this calls for immediate action to go to USA for further treatment. The life expectancy at this stage ranges from a few months to a few years.
Nitesh has been recommended for a clinical trial and immunotherapy as an alternative treatment. As per the prognosis, further treatment needs to be carried out in the USA. The cost of the treatment is expected to be around $ 500,000 (INR 3.19 Crore).
“Being a lower middle-class family, arranging for a big amount all of a sudden has come like a shock. Unfortunately, I also do not have medical insurance to take care of any expenses”, Nitesh says.
For Nitesh and his family, this cost is realistically impossible to bear. However, this young, bright chap is determined to live, deservingly so. The amount is big, however, we have immense belief in the power of people. Your contribution can give Nitesh a second chance at life. We urge you to contribute your part to the campaign.
