US Student Raising Funds For Cancer-Ridden Indian American

rt, the student fraternity in the campus assisted Hill and Pierce by spreading the word about the event.

There is no cure for AML, and patients need treatment as soon as possible after diagnosis. Nikit was diagnosed 17 months ago as being affected with the M4 myelomonocytic subtype of AML.

Treatment is expensive, whether in the form of intensive chemotherapy or drug prescriptions. Single treatments can cost up to $40,000.

Nikit has already undergone two bone marrow transplants and is being treated with 30 days of chemotherapy for the next six months at St. Louis University Hospital in Chicago.

"It is important, especially for an immigrant family, to show that people care," the report quoted Pierce as saying. "That's the most important thing, and of course, (the Patels) can use the monetary aspect to pay for the treatments."

Last week's event in the coffee shop raised $1,700. Additionally, $800 came from separate donations. The money, according to the report, is being transferred into a TCF National Bank Trust Fund to help pay for Nikit's medical costs.

Apart from last week's event, donation boxes have also been placed at Carmen's Chicago Pizza on Sheridan Road and the subway on Broadway and Berwyn Avenue in Chicago.

Expressing gratitude for the support shown by Loyola students, the patient's father said: ""It helps my son with the medicine and the treatment. Leukaemia is a very bad kind of cancer from what I have experienced and read. This fundraiser definitely lets people know more about the cancer."
