“In the last few months, she looked very pale and her fever kept coming and going. We had to take her to the hospital every 15 days. She needed blood transfusions as well. But no one told us this could be cancer. If I got to know about this before, maybe I could have saved Jhumur from the pain,” - Bishnupada (father).
The parents helplessly look on as their baby suffers in painJhumur had just started talking. Saraswati and Bishnupada used to wait eagerly for her to learn new words. Sometimes, when she mispronounced them, the entire family couldn’t help but laugh at her childish babble.
“She is undergoing painful tests almost every other day, she can’t even sit up because of them. The little girl who used to run around the house, playing with her sisters can hardly turn sides without crying out loud in pain."
‘I wish I could understand what my daughter is going through, I am scared I will lose her’Bishnupada is a construction worker and Saraswati stays at home looking after their three daughters. They are unable to understand what treatment their daughter is undergoing for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a deadly cancer. The only time they had heard of cancer was on TV. They don't understand why their daughter is being given so many injections and they are scared.
“She has high fever and often she can’t sleep. Every time they push an injection, I fear that something will go wrong in her body. I fear I will lose her,” - Saraswati (mother).
Jhumur’s treatment has been funded by loans and grants until now, but even that is not enoughWith no helping hand at home, Bishnupada has not been able to go to work for the past 6 months. He has been taking care of his two elder daughters while his wife has been constantly by little Jhumur's side
“I had applied for the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund and it is with that money that I have been able to start Jhumur’s treatment. I have also borrowed from my nieghbours for her. But I need 5 lakhs more. Please help me save my daughter.”
With your help, Bishnupada and Jhumur will be able to cure their little daughter from deadly cancer and take her back home. A little contribution will go a long way.
