Siya Aggarwal's Drive for Cancer Charity
326 days remaining
Children look at the world with fresh, untarnished eyes. The courage they carry with them is inspirational. When my mother was diagnosed with Cancer, she too revealed tremendous bravery. However, the journey wasn't without its fair share of hurdles. I have vivid memories of my mother’s struggle with cancer. We were fortunate to have the financial ability to provide her the necessary care. When I watched my mom battle the vicious disease, I couldn't fathom the distress and anguish faced by the less fortunate, who go through similar pain and suffering. Some of them are just little children. These are kids and their families from smaller towns and villages, most end up living on pavements near the Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital.
Why are these children inspirational you may wonder? They knew not their fate nor did they have the means to fight. Despite this, these kids don't let cancer wipe out their beaming smiles nor diminish their spirit. My mind often pondered about these same kids. As a result, I set my sights on ensuring they keep the hope twinkling in their eyes and their infectious laughs radiating. I resolved to do something that could make getting through this disease a tad bit easier on them. Yes, Prayers, Hope, and Empathy are comforting, but Cancer demands medical care, which requires money.
Hi, My name is Siya Aggarwal. I am 17 years old, studying in 11th grade at Ascend International School. I have been running the Mumbai Marathon for the last 5 years in support of cancer patients at Tata Memorial Hospital. I will be running at the Tata Mumbai Marathon for the sixth time with my father Girish, my mother Priti, my Aunt Jigi, my little brother Vir to raise funds. We run a combined total of over 65 kilometers annually, ever since 2016, when we raised around INR 8 lakhs in support of these kids. Last year, we were able to raise more than INR 10 lakhs.
All funds raised through this campaign go directly to the Tata Memorial Hospital to finance treatments for underprivileged children fighting cancer. Every penny is valuable and makes a difference. This year I hope to raise more than INR 10 lakhs.
Some Kind Words from our Friends and Supporters in this Noble Cause
Tata Memorial Centre Runners of Hope Initiative for the treatment of children with cancer (TMC RuHI), raises money for underprivileged children undergoing treatment at Tata Hospital.This is an integral part of the Hospital so the the entire amount is used for treatment. TMC RuHI wishes Siya Aggarwal and her family good luck for the Tata Mumbai Marathon and Thank you for supporting this charity.
Such a commendable initiative by young Siya! Last year, I remember that she not only ran in the Mumbai marathon, but took great initiative in collecting contributions from neighbors, friends and relatives for underprivileged kids affected by cancer. All the best to her for meeting the ₹10 lakhs target for this year!
The Tata Memorial Hospital gave my mother a second lease on life, just as it’s been a beacon of hope for countless other families. It is truly humbling to experience the tireless, selfless work of all the TMH professionals and we’re privileged to support TMH, in a small way, in the treatment of Cancer patients. All the best to Siya 👍
