Aishwarya Sanjukta Roy Proma was a student at St. Francis Girls’ School and gave her HSC exams from Holy Cross College. She is currently studying in the Department of International Relations at the University of Dhaka.This talented 2nd year student was diagnosed with Stage 2 Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system. She is undergoing treatment at the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, India. The cancer could reach Stage 3 unless she completes 6 rounds of chemotherapy on time. But each round of chemotherapy will cost her family Rs 2.5 lac, or approximately BDT 325,000 ( 250,000x 1.3= 325,000). Along with her chemotherapy expense, her family will also need to pay for her 7-day stay at the hospital after each chemotherapy round; each day will cost them Rs 7000, which will amount to approximately BDT 4 lacs (7000x1.3x7x6= 382,200). The additional expenses for medicines, medical tests and other miscellaneous purposes will put the total cost for her treatment at BDT 30 lacs (2,332,200+ 600,000 in additional expenses) or, 37,395 USD or, 35,230 EUR approximately.
She is amongst the top scorers in her batch, with an impressive CGPA of 3.72 on a 4.0 scale in the previous semester and the manager of our department’s cricket team. She was also one of the best debaters and dance performers in the Holy Cross College. She is an irreplaceable asset to our department and the university at large. The best thing about Aishwarya is her loyalty to her friends and family. We earnestly believe that if someone else in our batch were sick instead of her then she would be the first person to help them. Her fierce spirit and generous soul have been an inspiration for all the people who have gotten to know her. Even though the chemotherapy is taking a heavy toll on her body, she continues to reassure us with a smile that she will soon come back to us. Her words and her hopes for a happy life amongst the people whom she loves drive us to campaign relentlessly for her all through the noon and night right after our everyday classes. We have already received over 12 lac Taka worth of donations for her treatment, but we still have a long way to go before she can come back to us.
It is not possible for her father, who is the sole breadwinner of a middle-income family living in Dhaka city, to afford such immense expenses for the treatment of his only daughter. Let us help to bring back the gifted young girl who is a loving daughter to her father, a compassionate friend to her classmates and a familiar face to everyone at the University of Dhaka.
