Please Help Syamacandra Das

by Bhakta Ziad

Posted November 27, 2010

It has been 6 months since 25 year old Syamacandra das, a truly resilient soul,has been diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma-a rare form of bone-marrow cancer which eats away at the bone and ultimately leads to spinal tumors,of which this humbled devotee has 9.

He is a devotee of HH Bhakti Caitanya Swami, who has been in the KC movement for the past 15 years. He has gone from being temple secretary to being head pujari for 4 years before and after the New Jagannatha Puri in Durban, South Africa,had opened its doors.

Syamacandra prabhu is in the third stage of his cancer and doctors have now said there's nothing more they can do. There are a few things that Syamaji would like to do before the Lord calls him home...if that is His will.

The most important at this stage is his intense desire to visit Sri Vrindavan Dham. Hence my humble request to each of you.

I have been with him since diagnosis and can unfortunately not do very much in this regard as I have not worked since. It is therefore my plea to the members of this group to assist in any way, in order to make this wish a reality.

I have taken it upon myself to facilitate a "fund-raiser" on his behalf.

For those willing to offer Lakshmi towards this endeavor, please find both my email address and banking details below.

I thank you all in advance for your assistance in this regard. May Lord Krishna bestow countless blessings upon your souls.

Jai Sri Krishna!
Jai Srila Prabhupada!
