The doctor from the town suggested Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) in Mumbai and said that the doctors at TMH would have a cure for this disease. So, with his whole family and a whole lot of hope he left for Mumbai.
Ranjeet and Chinta devi also have a daughter and another son. Three children- the daughter being the eldest, followed by Chandan and a younger son. Chinta devi is a stay at home mother helping Ranjeet run the household. He has a small piece of land in his village, growing and selling his crops is how he feeds the rest of his family.
After moving to Mumbai for Chandan’s treatment Ranjeet Shah took up a job as a street hawker- selling clothes near TMH. He earns around Rs.7000 a month. He slowly joined all his children in school. Chandan had to take a chemo injection every 7 days. Although the immediate effect of Chemo was pretty mortifying for Chandan and his family to take it, but over the years he has started to become better. He used to pay for the treatment through various trusts such as Ratan tata and cancer society.
Soon as Chandan showed a considerable improvement in his health and they went back to their village in Bihar. Again in 2012 when Chandan’s health started to worsen, they came back to Mumbai for the chemo injections. As Chandan did not show any improvement, the doctor at TMH decided for a blood cell transplantation to offer a permanent cure for Chandan.
Ranjeet Shah has exhausted all the money he saved up under the trusts and cannot afford this permanent cure with his meager earnings of Rs.7000 a month. This is where we need your help in supporting Ranjeet Shah see a permanent cure for his son Chandan Shah.
The approximate cost for the transplantation is 12lakhs and here is a supporting document.
