Mahmuda Akter Mousumi, 25, an honours final year student at Mymensingh Ananda Mohan College, has been suffering from Chordoma, a rare type of cancer.
Mousumi, a mother of two, was detected with the disease in June this year. Later, she was referred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for better treatment.
Her family has already spent Tk 5 lakh for her treatment and are not financially able to continue.
Her doctors advised her to get treatment outside the country, but it will require a further Tk 35 lakh, said Shafiqul Islam, Mousumi’s husband.
Family members have appealed to the affluent members of society to help continue her treatment.
