      This is to bring to your attention about Mr. Thomas Kurian, 45 years, suffering from colon cancer. He is undergoing treatment at Medical College Hospital, Kottayam. 10 courses of chemotherapy are needed as part of the treatment, of which 7 are completed. They are strained for finance to complete the remaining courses. It seems a radiation treatment will also be needed subsequent to completion of chemotherapy.


      They are financially very challenged, they don’t own a house, currently living in a small rented house.


      The patient was the only earning member till he was diagnosed with cancer. He was a mason working under a daily wage. His wife, Beena, is diabetic. She has now got a temporary, contractual job.


      They have a son, Jerin Thomas, a +1 science student, staying at Njaliakuzhy Dayara, Kottayam, for the last 4 years. He is an active Sunday School student, a regular acolyte at the Alter during H. Qurbana on Sundays, and take part in all Church activities with keen interest.  


      They are members of Mar Gregorios Orthodox Church, Kumaramkode, Puthupally. Fr. Zachariah Ninan, Vicar of the parish, can be contacted for verification of the case. Ph: +91-481-2354720


      This family need our support. Any financial aid to help them is appreciated. The joint account of Thomas Kurian & Beena Thomas is 67207277711 with State Bank of Travancore, Puthupally, Kottayam.
