“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The quote is about not giving up under any circumstances. If all seems lost, and you are at the end of your rope, just hold on, and help yourself by adding a knot at the end. Many things in life take effort. If everything was easy, nothing would have much value. 

Here is the story of another strong soul fighting cancer. Challa Varma, a young man, has been suffering from Adenocarcinoma (stomach cancer). He works as a mechanic at RTC, on contract basis, with a salary of Rs.5000 per month. He is married and have a 3 year old child. It’s unfortunate that he has to suffer through this process at a very young age. As the cancer is in advanced state, he had to undergo a surgery at Continental Hospitals in October 2018. He also went through 3 sessions of chemotherapy at Vivekananda Hospital, Begumpet. Unfortunately Varma’s family ran out of funds for further chemotherapy sessions. Their family requested Ashvattha for help through a volunteer. We reached out to Varma, met him at the hospital and donated a cheque of Rs.30,000. 

Thank you Volunteers and Donors of Ashavttha for making a difference in Varma’s life. Let’s wish he gains all the strength needed to fight cancer and hope he recovers soon!
