Cancer Has Brought My Son to the Brink of Death Once Again

Anvay was barely 2-years-old when he was first diagnosed with blood cancer. Hema and Raghavendra’s life came crashing down, but their son fought long and hard to beat cancer. Anvay had only just begun living the life of a normal child when his cancer returned. Now, Anvay lives in fear - of hospitals, injections and being alone. All Hema can do now is hold is hand and try to comfort him while he struggles. Cancer threatens to take away this 6-year-old’s life once again, and he’s running out of time without urgent treatment.

Cancer has taken away Anvay’s childhood and happiness for the second time

The day they told us that he was cancer free was the happiest day of our lives. He finally had a chance of going to school and growing up. For two years after that, he and his brother filled the house with happiness and laughter. Every day we were grateful to have him back with us. Maybe it was all too good to be true. Now he’s suffering more than ever. Cancer has brought my son to the brink of death once again, and this time there’s no going back if he doesn’t get treated.”

Anvay’s cancer was diagnosed in 2013, but after a brave fight, he recovered. His parents thought he had beat cancer for good, but two years of health and happiness later, Anvay is back in the hospital fighting an even bigger battle. This time, only a bone marrow transplant can save his life.

The excruciating pain of cancer has taken over Anvay’s life and he's afraid to be alone

Anvay is always in pain. If not for the numerous painkillers that he’s given, he wouldn’t even be able to walk without his legs trembling in pain. He’s too weak to move and only finds solace in his mother’s presence.

I can’t leave him alone for even a minute. He’s so scared all the time. He keeps crying and saying ‘amma everything hurts, I just want to go home’. I stay strong and tell him I’ll take him home soon, but when I’m alone I can’t help but break down. He’s going through so much and I feel so helpless as a mother. I wish I could suffer from this pain instead of him, he doesn’t deserve this.”

Anvay can be saved, but his parents don't have the means to get him treated  

We don’t have anything left anymore. We only have a roof over our head to call our own, but all our savings are gone. When we found out about his relapse, we didn’t even know if we could afford to admit him. We begged and borrowed from people, thinking that we’ll take each day as it comes. We can’t give up on Anvay, but we’ve come close to stopping his treatment. No matter how badly we want to save him, our debts are holding us back.

Raghavendra works as an assistant accountant for a transportation company and has spent all his life’s savings on saving Anvay from cancer the first time. After years of paying for treatment, his hands are tied, and pockets, empty. The dark cloud of worry about his medical expenses looms over the couple constantly. They have no one to turn to, and without treatment, Anvay can’t escape the eventuality of cancer.

Anvay’s fight with cancer has begun again. He has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but with treatment, his parents can finally take him home again and he can have a chance of a bright future.

How You Can Help

Anvay needs chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant to survive. It’s his only chance to beat cancer for good, but Raghavendra and Hema have no means to afford 30 lakhs for his treatment. Despite their best efforts, all they can assure their son is moments of comfort. They need your help to give him the treatment he needs.

Your support will save Anvay’s life.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support that you have shown towards my son Anvay. He is currently undergoing the eighth week of salvage chemotherapy and as per what the doctors have told us it is a strong dosage.

Once he is done with this chemotherapy session he will be undergoing a few tests. The reports of these tests will suggest the future course of action. If all goes well then he will be admitted to the hospital after this session for the bone marrow transplant.

I would like to request all of you to please share this campaign further with your friends and family to help us in raising funds towards his treatment. A simple act of sharing this campaign will help us immensely in raising funds towards his treatment. Will keep you posted.

Thank you!
