Day 6

19th November, 2016

The date 19/11/2016 is very special for 40-64 Family because it was the first death anniversary of our dear Tr. Utkarsh Jani (UJ). We have decided to male this date special and decided to do something which can be considered as our small gesture to our dear friend UJ.

 We have decided to adopt a girl child named Manisha who is suffering from Leukaemia (a type of Cancer). The doctor who was doing the treatment of UJ had told his wife Chaitali that if this girl gets chemo-therapies and medicines at appropriate time, there is 80% chance that the girl child can be saved.

 Post gaining knowledge over the medical expenses properly which is proposed to be incurred on the girl child, our Table and Circle had jointly decided to adopt the same girl and start with her treatment immediately. We have informed the doctors to start with the treatment immediately. On 19/11/2016, when we gave the cheque, the doctors have express the gratitude towards the noble cause done by us.

 On that day after the project, we felt happy and satisfied on doing this wonderful project . UJ my brother you will always be missed.
