Udupi: Juliet Saldanha seeks help for medical treatment

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi

Udupi, May 11: Juliet Saldanha, a 53-year-old woman who should be enjoying a happy family life, is instead struggling for survival each day. Performing even simple daily tasks has become challenging for her, and she often relies on others for assistance.

Originally from Santoor Kopla near Mukamar in Udupi district, Juliet has been battling bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) for the past five years. Her journey has been marked by numerous hardships, including major surgeries and regular chemo radiation therapy, all aimed at fighting the disease.

To cover the expenses of her treatment, Juliet has already sold her gold ornaments and other properties. However, the cost of her ongoing medication continues to mount, with over 30 lakh already spent on specialized treatments. Her monthly expenses for treatment, including chemotherapy and immunotherapy every three weeks, pose a significant financial burden.

With the loss of her husband eight years ago, Juliet's 24-year-old son now takes care of her. In her current situation, Juliet is reaching out for financial assistance from generous donors willing to contribute to her treatment expenses. She hopes that with their support, she can lead a better and more normal life. Juliet also asks for prayers, seeking strength to endure her illness.

Those who wish to donate and help Juliet, can send their contributions to the following bank account details:

    John Doha ,you are right.Problem is we normalos cant undertake anything.but health officers inspectors are there to look into this and prohibit it by strict rules for not getting into open drain and through this die fish and people get sick.They must have pumped enough money so to get licence.It is not normal a petrol company allows its crude oil pass through middle of city in open canal.Where are these MLAs or health Inspectors of nation ?Normally such industries should be out of city far from lots of people live,for the safety of people and co2.But who will listen and who will ask?I only Pity this lady suffering this disease because I can imagine how serious and suffer .May God give her enough strenght to go through in her pains and aches.
