Chitram (Vinesh) Ayana
Chitram Ayana (Vinesh) is a thirteen year old child who was originally diagnosed with liver cancer; however, after seeking a second medical opinion, it was determined that he has a rare type of Sarcoma. His condition is critical as the disease is aggressively spreading. Treatment is available but only through a very limited amount of specialists, it is also extremely costly. Funds are urgently needed to help pay for his treatment. Please help us save his life.
On February 4, 2019, Chitram was accepted at a specialized medical facility in the US and he is currently receiving treatment. He was given a positive prognosis with a treatment term of one year. Chitram’s doctors are incredibly optimistic that his cancer is curable and they are excited to move forward with treatment.
Update (June 21, 2019): After 6 rounds of chemotherapy, Chitram’s cancer is in remission. We are grateful to everyone involved in getting Chitram to this point. He will return to Guyana in early July 2019, but will have several follow-up appointments in the US.

We are raising funds to help pay for his medical treatment, living expense, and basic necessities.
