Find a Cure for This Rare Cancer

A lot has changed since the last year, when I had just turned 23. It feels like a long time back when I was living a perfectly healthy life, working hard for myself, my family, and the society through running my own NGO. At that time, the biggest dream I had was to have a cat someday; only if I knew even small dreams were too much to ask.

February 2019 I learnt that I have an advanced-stage ovarian cancer. And it didn’t stop at that. As it turned out, I had the rarer sub-variety of the disease – Low-Grade Serous, a type of cancer which remains to have a cure, and almost no research goes into this cancer type which kills thousands of young girls and mothers every year.

My entire universe, in which I had finally found some balance in, shattered all my aspirations of a tomorrow. My elderly parents who I was supposed to take care of, were fighting to help me survive. All I could think of was – I too deserve the only shot life gives us all. I want to be around my family to watch them laugh. I want to be around for all those who have learnt they have cancer.  I want to talk about hope and strength. And the last thing I want is anyone to be alone in this battle.

I would love to have your helping hand in my pursuance, and the pursuance of many thousands of women across the world to survive – please be a part of finding cure for Low Grade Serous Ovarian Carcinoma through funding its research.

On the observance of the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month September, I am working to raise funds for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and MD Anderson Cancer Center and their official partners. The funds will be directly utilized for ovarian cancer research, especially genome sequencing research, to find a cure for my rare cancer variety: low-grade serous ovarian cancer (details below). Remember, no contribution is small. Also, help me in spreading the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

The cure will not be here immediately, but I have hope and belief one day it will be. And that day we will celebrate what we have undertaken to do. We will celebrate all those fighters who have died, and all those who would see a future they never hoped for. We will celebrate an exhilarating killing of this silent killer. And we will be in this together. With love and hope, Nishtha.
