Help Fellow Punekar Parnavi Kherade

In the recent past, we had published a story about cancer survivor, Parnavi Kherade, who’d been suffering from cancer of the Femur (thigh bone). She took the possibly-fatal illness as a challenge and overcame it, against staggering odds.
CancerCertificateParnavi was recently given the shattering news that the cancer has recurred and needs to be treated with chemotherapy and radiation. Her single mother has worked extremely hard at various jobs so she could incur the payments of her daughter’s numerous treatments in the past. (Parnavi’s father passed away when she was still an infant.)
I sincerely appeal to you to contribute any amount of money that you possibly can. As you can see in the certificate, the treatment will cost Rs. 3 Lac and will be carried out over a duration of 1 year.
Parnavi’s bank details are mentioned below. If for some reason, you’re not able to make a bank transfer but would like to send over a cheque or DD, please email me ( and I’ll get you in touch with the family.

Do keep the girl in your prayers. Here’s hoping she comes out of this ordeal healthier and stronger than ever.
I will make sure to keep you updated on her progress. Let’s join hands and help Parnavi bounce back to the strong, adorable and bubbly girl she’s always been!
