    Debabrata Bhattacharya

    from Howrah, West Bengal

Two months back 27-year-old Debabrata was diagnosed with Germ cell tumours in his body and needs to urgently undergo four cycles of chemotherapy in order to treat the tumours and recover at the earliest.

Debabrata used to work at a small provisions store as a helper, earning a meagre income to support his mother and himself. When he noticed that he had vomited, with stains of blood, he knew it was something serious.
Upon consultation, a few scans revealed the lump like growth inside his chest. A biopsy brought back their worst nightmare. Debabrata had developed tumours that need immediate treatment.
He has been advised to undergo chemotherapy urgently before his condition becomes more severe and risky. 

Unfortunately, Debabrata’s father had also been diagnosed with Blood Cancer. Due to a dire lack of funds, however, the family could not afford treatment. They had to helplessly watch a member of their family die a slow, painful death. Now, Debabrata is all his mother has.
 All panic struck when Debebrata noticed the blood stains.

Debabrata’s mother Nirupama is completely broken now. With no means to save her only son, the widowed mother is now forced begging for alms on the streets to continue his treatment. With some support from her neighbours and distant relatives, she has obtained the diagnosis and provided him with medical care so far. However, she has no way to arrange for the funds needed for chemotherapy.
