My name is Kamlakar and I live with my wife Shubhangi in India. Our daughter has been living in Canada since 2003 with her husband and 3 boys.

One of our grandchildren, Govind, was diagnosed with high risk stage 4 Neuroblastoma in April 2013 and underwent one and half years of treatment at Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary. He was in remission from October 2014 until April 2016 when he relapsed with same cancer. He has been on treatment since then with oral medication. However the medicine has not shown much effect and the cancer is still growing.

Now they are planning a new treatment which will require him to be hospitalized every month starting from July. We want to visit our daughter to stay with her in this difficult time and support her in every possible way.
