    Aaradhya Mondal

    from Katwa, West Bengal

“I look at Aaradhya’s face and cannot imagine that just two months ago everything was fine with her and now she has something as deadly as cancer. She has become very weak and cries all the time, my chirpy little baby is no longer the same. She is very scared of the hospital and doesn’t want us to leave her side at all. Nights after nights she cannot sleep because of the pain she is going through. All I had is my land, I sold it  yet I cannot afford the treatment, I don't know what I can do to save her."- Utpal, Father of 2-year-old Aaradhya. 

Baby Aaradhya is battling a rare form of bone cancer and the only way she can survive is through chemotherapy followed by an urgent surgery. But her family is too poor to afford the surgery which might save their little daughter.

The parents were shocked to know that their daughter has a rare form of bone cancer

Things were looking fine for Aaradhya until a harmless swelling in her right shoulder started growing and scared her parents. Utpal, Aaradhya’s father and Jayanti, took her to the hospital where after some initial tests they were told that their little daughter has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing Sarcoma. It is a cancerous tumor that usually affects the long bones, such as the thigh bone, shin bone and upper arm bone. An aggressive form of cancer, this spreads to other parts of the body like that of lungs, bone marrow and other soft tissues.

“Our whole world came crashing down as we heard the word ‘cancer’. I couldn’t believe that my daughter who was all hale and hearty just few days back will die unless I arrange for the surgery. Jayanti kept on crying uncontrollably and there was no way I could do anything to console her,” - Utpal. 

Chemotherapy has made Aaradhya very weak and she cannot eat anything at all

Soon after she was diagnosed with cancer, Aaradhya has been undergoing chemotherapy. The chemotherapy has taken a toll on the 2-year-old’s health. She is unable to eat anything, throws out whatever she eats and is always crying out in pain.
“It is heartbreaking to see Aaradhya go through so much pain. She is just 2 and at a time when she should be playing around she is going through such a painful treatment. I wish there was something I could do to make her feel better even a little,” - Jayanti. 

The poor father has sold his land for his daughter’s treatment and still doesn’t have the funds for the surgery

Utpal is a small farmer and who used to work in his land and struggled to make the two ends meet. When Aaradhya was diagnosed with cancer, he decided to sell his land  without a second thought to arrange for the funds for the initial treatment. But the surgery would cost him 7 lakhs and there is no way in which he can arrange for that much money.
“I didn't even think twice before selling my land. At that point in time all that came to my mind was my Aaradhya’s treatment. But now the doctors have told us that an urgent surgery is her only chance to survive. I am a poor farmer and I don’t know how I will arrange for so much money which I have never seen in my life,” - Utpal. 

How you can help

2-year-old Aaradhya has been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of bone cancer that affects less than five thousand children in India. She needs an urgent chemotherapy followed by a surgery in a month’s time. She is in a lot of pain right now, and the cancerous tumor in her right shoulder will soon spread to other organs of her body without necessary treatment. Her father is a poor farmer and he is not in a condition to arrange for the huge sum of money for her daughter’s surgery. Your kind contribution can help Utpal and Jayanti save their little Aaradhya’s life and give her a healthy future.
