Help Farmer's Baby Fight Cancer


Baby Basavaraju, has has been diagonsed with Cancer. This fundraiser is to support the care for this little boy who was diagnosed with Rhabdomysarcoma of the urinary bladder. This is a genetic condition that affects the muscle tissues. He hails from a very poor socio-economic background. His parents are small-scale farmers and live in a remote village in Karnataka. 

Though his cancer care is supported under the government funding scheme of Karnataka, they are struggling with day to day costs of travel from their village for hospital visits/stays, expenses during such visits. In more than one instance we have been extremely worried about his safety due to significant delay in them seeking care even in the setting of neutropenic fever. 

We feel that it is imperative that they stay close to our center for the remainder of his treatment (approximately 6-8 months). This will prevent delays in his treatment. 

Funds raised through this campaign will pay for the rent and living expenses for the  next 6 months.

Hence, we, the pediatric hematology and oncology team at the Mazumdar-Shaw Cancer center/ Narayana health city kindly seek help for Basavaraju in acheving our goal.

We believe his case is curable, albeit, we fear that he may die of a serious infection due to delay in seeking care. Please feel free to communicate with me for any questions.

Dear All,

Your contribution has helped us arrange safe and hygienic residence close to the hospital for Basavaraju. Another young girl with cancer who was in need has also been benefited in the same setup as it has 2 bedrooms with a kitchen and attached bathroom.

We have given them detailed instructions to maintain hygiene as they share the setup. The money was transferred from Milaap directly to the guest house's bank account for the first 2 weeks. We will continue the same every two weeks. They both are following up on time as advised. They also appear happier overall.

Basavaraju's father has found local employment to support the rest of their living costs. Our hospital's internal funding through has ensured coverage of Basavaraju's radiation treatment cost.He is receiving daily radiation for the past week and has five more weeks to go. It indeed takes a village... a nation and international support to heal.

Thank you very much 🙏🏼
