My brain surgery is still pending as it’s already widespread all my right side of my body till my lungs and it will only be possible if I heal with chemotherapy first with just 30% hope,” she wrote.

The former Miss India Tripura further added, “I just wanted to let everyone know that me and my family is going through a rough time and the last 2 years have also not been easy with regular hospital stays and visits.I am accepting donations as of now because we have exhausted all our savings on my treatment since the last two years. I thought letting everyone know what I am going through will also make me feel better.”
