Mangaluru: Thank you readers - Rs 6 lac generated for cancer patient Santhosh D'Silva

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (SB)

Mangaluru, Sep 15: The large-hearted readers of daijiworld have once again made a miracle possible in the life of a family in need. Santhosh D'Silva of Bejai, who needed financial support after being diagnosed with bone cancer, has now been bestowed with a new ray of hope with over Rs 6 lac pouring in for his medical care.

Last month, Daijiworld published the story of Santhosh D'Silva, a taxi driver residing in Barebail, Bejai who is suffering from bone cancer. Santhosh had experienced a severe thyroid issue and complained of difficulty in swallowing food, followed by other health issues. On consultation with a doctor in the city, he was asked to undergo an operation to cure the thyroid. He was recommended to rest for a while following his operation. One day, while having a bath Santhosh collapsed in the bathroom and suffered a fracture on both legs. Due to the severity of the fracture, Santhosh's wife had to immediately rush him to a nearby hospital. On conducting a medical examination of his bones, the family was shocked to learn that the doctors had diagnosed Santhosh as suffering from bone cancer which he required him to undergo specialized radiation treatment.

After reading about Santhosh’s plight, daijiworld readers contributed about Rs 6 lac to the family which was badly in need of financial support for his treatment.

Speaking to daijiworld, Sumana, wife of Santhosh said, "I was completely shattered when doctors informed me about my husband's bone cancer. The huge medical expenses stood in front of me like a mountain. I met many with a request for financial support but the current poor economic condition prevented me from getting help. When I lost all hope, daijiworld came to my husband’s rescue as a messenger of God. I thank all daijiworld readers for their generosity and kindness. I will keep them in my daily prayers. I got my husband back only because of them."

Daijiworld thanks its readers for responding positively for the cause. We hope our readers continue to suppport our efforts to alleviate the problems of the less privileged or those who are in dire need.
