A cause we care about needs your help! NANMMA joining hand with Rafeeque M Octeberene’s family, friends and colleagues.
Rafeeque M Octoberene (Octo, as he is known among friends) is a very smart, intelligent, academic, successful and accomplished Engineer living the dream life in US with his wife and 7 year old son in New Jersey.
In May of 2018, his world was turned upside down! Octo has been diagnosed with a glioblastoma, an aggressive and incurable grade IV primary brain tumor. Since then, he has undergone surgery, radiation treatments, and multiple lines of systemic chemotherapy. Unfortunately, his clinical condition is declining despite aggressive treatment. Due to his illness, he is aphasic, unable to communicate well by speaking. For past 15 months, Faith, love and support of family and friends enabled them to fight through the odds. Octo and his family is facing some financial constraints as he was the sole bread winner for family. His wife Ramya took up a job recently and very soon she had give up the job as his condition is declining.
May Almighty God make it easy on Octo and his family to get through this difficult phase. Please keep them in your prayers.
NANMMA, Octo’s extended family, Close friends in USA, colleagues at Horizon BCBS , College friends from TKM, CUSAT and UC College is starting this campaign to help raise money for his medical bills and other expenses that are piling up at this point.
