Ramesh Gupta Memorial Trust arranged the full treatment of Mr. Samarpan Mishra in Cooperation with Nepal Cancer Hospital & Research Centre.

In 2018, Samarpan Mishra was diagnosed with high risk acute Lymphoncytic Leukemia. He was just 8 years old at the time.

In Nepal, around 100 children are diagnosed with Lymphoncytic Leukemia each year. It is the most common leukemia in children & adults. It’s a type of cancer that starts in cells that become certain white blood cells (called lymphocytes) in the bone marrow. The cancer (leukemia) cells start in the bone marrow but then go into the blood. The leukemia cells often build up slowly. Many people don’t have any symptoms for at least a few years. But over time, the cells grow and spread to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes, liver, and spleen.

Mr. Samarpan Mishra, living in Lalitpur, Kathmandu is the only child of a disabled father and a mother. They try their hardest to make a living running a simple tea shop in Lalitpur. By all means, it is very difficult for the parents to arrange financial and informative support for the boy’s treatment. Mr. Samarpan Mishra is the family’s only hope for their future.

Since December.2017, Samarpan has had at least 3 doses of chemotherapy, countless nights in hospital, multiple blood transfusions and stem cell transplants. Next on his schedule is radiotherapy and immunotherapy which will continue until at least November 2019.

Ramesh Gupta Memorial Trust has arranged and takes responsibility of the full treatment of Mr. Samarpan Mishra in Cooperation with Nepal Cancer Hospital & Research Centre.
