PHYSICIAN: Dr Harit Chaturvedi _ Current doctor
HOSPITAL: John Hopkins Maryland / US – Planing
God bless you Nora for starting this initiative.
My mother is diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma of high grade touching many retroperitoneal structures. Her sarcoma is 18 cm wide and there are not many hospitals/ surgeons who have the ability to treat this demon. I am residing in Canada and my parents live in India. We plan to travel to John Hopkins, Maryland to get the best possible treatment for my mother. I have also written to Dr Nita Ahuja from John Hopkins for her advise and know more about our options to get treated at this hospital. My mom is all I have and I am really really scared by the thought and the slightest possibility of loosing her. Her doctor told her that there are more than 50% chances of the cancer returning after 1-2 years post surgery.
I had to leave my job to take care of my mom and we don’t have any other source of income apart from some savings that I am using right now. Any help from your behalf will be very appreciated.
Thanks a ton.
