“I think he knows. But he doesn’t talk to me about it. He has always been the quiet kind. He doesn’t complain much but I know he is going through so much pain. I wish I could do something to take away his pain,” - Biplab, father.
His pain became so severe that he could hardly stand upA little over a month ago, Debrup complained of a pain in his legs and waist. Biplab and his wife, Sampa, took him to an orthopedic - the medicines and injections gave him some relief.
“But it came back and this time he could hardly stand up. We got so scared - what was happening to my son. What was this disease that has almost paralysed my son? Finally, when we took him to NH, we got to know that there is a growing tumour in his hip bone. We were shocked!” - Biplab.
Three cycles of chemo is over but he needs continued treatmentBiplab works in a small computer shop in his hometown in West Bengal. His earning is just about enough to take care of his family - his one son and one daughter and his wife. But the news of Debrup’s cancer came as a bolt from the blue.
“I didn’t know what to do when I heard about Debrup’s cancer. Shampa and I couldn’t believe it at first. Debrup has always been very healthy and now...cancer! But I did everything I could and arranged for 2 lakhs to start his chemotherapy,” - Biplab.
“Debrup is supposed to appear for his 10th board exams, he has so many plans. He keeps talking about those to us. But now each time he says anything, Shampa and I look at each other - not knowing what to say. We are afraid that he might not live that long if we can’t afford the treatment…,” - Biplab.
