Story

Basavaraju is a 45-year-old man with a cancer in his neck. He is a daily-wage worker who is unable to go to work because he can't eat, breathe or speak properly. He has no funds for his treatment and needs some financial support to get treatment.

Basavaraju has been on a liquid diet for the last 6 months

December 2016 was when Basavaraju was paid last. It was when his cancer spread through his neck and he developed so many tumours that he couldn't speak. He lost weight from 50 kgs to 30 kgs. He was diagnosed with cancer and had to stop working. 

Cancer has made Basavaraju a shell of the person he used to be

Since then – he has been too sick to work and all his treatment so far has been funded by the loans his older sister Sudha managed to get. She had managed to arrange only Rs 2 lakhs which has been used for the treatment so far. 

Basavaraju's cancer is growing and threatens to choke his throat 

He has taken radiation and chemotherapy till now. He needs to continue treatment that will shrink the tumours. But his family has exhausted all their funds and desperately need support. 

Basavaraju's whole life has been full of struggle

Basavaraju's father passed away when he was very young. His mother was devastated and had nowhere to go. With the help of an uncle, his elder siblings took care of Basavaraju and Prema – the two youngest children. 

Basavaraju's only family are his two sisters. Basavaraju with his sister Prema 

The family's suffering did not end here. Basavaraju's mother developed a mentalillness and his older brother passed away a few years back. In the last 10 years, Basavaraju was on his own. He worked as a daily-wage labourer making tiles and earned Rs 5,000 per month.

It is the hazardous nature of his job that could be responsible for Basavaraju's cancer – his sister suspects. His two sisters are his only family now and they feel terrible about what Basavaraju is going through. They also feel bad that he does not have his own family standing by him as he fights this terrible condition.
