    Baby of Radha

    from Bangalore, Karnataka

Radha and Vijay welcomed two precious twin daughters but with a heavy heart. One of their babies has a cancerous tumour in her liver and needs to undergo rigorous treatment. Unfortunately, she has developed seizures and her parents need help to save her. 

Vijay Kumar runs a small Internet browsing centre in Hosur, Tamil Nadu. Every month, he manages to earns between Rs 10,000-20,000. Coming from nothing, he considered himself moderately successful. He had saved up Rs 1 lakh for the childbirth and had even planned how he would fund the kids' higher education.

But in the ninth month of pregnancy, Vijay and Radha were told that one of their babies had a lump in its liver. A C-section was performed and the babies were born on April 21. Soon after birth, she underwent a biopsy and her tumour was found to be malignant. She had to start on chemotherapy right away.

While Radha and Vijay are thankful that their second daughter is healthy – they worry about their baby battling cancer all the time. It'll be another five years before they can stop worrying when she can be completely cancer free.

Right now, Radha's baby needs a lot of care and Vijay has not opened shop in the last one month. This has affected their income and the family is worried sick about funds. Vijay has already spent over 4 lakhs on the treatment and needs another 8 lakhs to make sure his baby finishes treatment.
