We the students of Anna University, currently
pursuing our third year B.Tech(Information Technology) have
joined our hands together in prayer and urgently seek your help
for our fellow colleague and classmate S.Vigneshwaran.
S.Vigneshwaran has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a
complicated and rare form of cancer. He has been battling the
disease with tremendous fortitude over the past four years, and
has been operated upon twice, during 2001 and 2004, for blood
transfusion. He recuperated well and has been performing very
creditably in college.
Regrettably, fate intervened, and in April 2006, he has been
diagnosed with a serious and debilitating condition and has been
admitted into Apollo Specialty Hospital, Teynampet. Doctors have
suggested that a Bone Marrow Transplant be performed upon him
followed by chemotherapy for relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia
(AML). This operation needs to be urgently performed within 10
The cost of the operation alone is Rs. 15 Lakhs. Having already
spent Rs. 16 Lakhs on former treatments, his parents are without
resources for the current operation. They have liquidated all
possible assets to keep their son and hopes alive and now are
unable to afford further expenses for the treatment.
As friends of Vigneshwaran, we seek your intervention to save a
life, a valuable resource of the country. We are trying our best
to rally round and raise contributions and financial assistance
for this expensive surgery. We need financial help.
At this hour of crisis we have turned to you for help and are
confident that we will not be disappointed. We humbly request
you to contribute generously towards the operation. The students
of Anna University, Chennai shall forever remain deeply indebted
to you for any financial assistance you could provide to enable
us defray the expenses for the operation and save a life. We
have full faith in your benevolence and will anxiously await
In your able hands we humbly place the case and firmly believe
that you will help us spark rather than snuff out this light of
From students and staff, alumni of our institution.
