Maulik Patel NEET: Such is Maulik's story

In an interview to the media, Maulik said, 'It was the year 2022 when this terrible storm came in my life, which I will probably never forget. I was in 11th then. Suddenly there was pain during urination. When the test was done, it was found that there was a 10 cm tumor near the bladder. After this, a biopsy was done, which revealed that I had cancer (sarcoma).'

'Within a month, I started feeling changes in myself. Severe pain during urination, weakness all the time, high fever. A month after that, the first operation took place in June 2022. Then the process of chemotherapy started. Going to the hospital for chemotherapy for 3 to 4 hours every day. By October 2022, there were three sessions of chemo. I started having constant constipation, hair on my head fell out. Pain is a different matter.'

'After this procedure, my tumor was reduced to 4 cm. During that time I also gave coaching tests to prepare for NEET. But after 2-3 months it was found that the tumor had again become 16 cm. Surgery was required again in January 2023. That year I could neither give the board exam nor NEET.'

'The second surgery took place, then the same sequence of chemo. By July 2023, 31 radiation therapies had been done. My medicines stopped in December 2023. But during all this, I did not leave my studies. I could not go to school-coaching, but kept studying online daily. I believe that- no matter what happens in life, do not give up. It is important to keep courage. You will win only when you think of winning.'
