I forward this letter to you for Medical help for Miss Zenobia Kersi Shroff 17 yrs. old, studying in Std. XII at Tapiben Chhaganlal Lalji Valia Junior College at Vile Parle(West), as this college is very close to Nanavati Hospital where Zenobia has to go thrice a week for dialysis. She has secured 75% in Std. XI.
Zenobia is suffering from End Stage Renal Failure and had been advised a kidney transplant to which her father, 54 yrs. old, had agreed to donate his kidney and several tests were being conducted for the same. Unfortunately, he suffered a paralysis stroke and was advised against donating his kidney. She has now been registered with Bombay Hospital and Nanavati Hospital for Cadevar Transplant. Till such time a donor is found she will have to continue on dialysis.
She has to go to Nanavati Hospital thrice a week for Dialysis to Dr. Sharad M. Sheth M.D.M.N.A.M.S. Head of Dept. Nephrology and the cost for each including the medications is Rs.1,050. Therefore the cost per month comes to Rs.20,000 which the family finds it very difficult to finance.
Zenobias mother Dinaz, is a housewife, and used to go home to home for cooking and making chappatis to make ends meet. Now she is unable to do the same as she has to look after her ailing husband and two daughters. Her younger daughter has just finished her SSC securing 90%. Both the children are very hardworking and clever.
They live at the below add ress :
Miss Zenobia K. Shroff
R / 28, Shapurji Bharucha Baug,

If you or any of your friends, family, acquaintances would like to ease their financial burden and help this family to meet the cost of education and Medical bills, please send your cheque directly to them.They will be most obliged and humbled by whatever little help you can give.
Thank you, God Bless.
