Narayana is a 40-year-old with blood cancer. Due to lack of funds, his cancer was diagnosed very late and he now urgently needs treatment for his cancer. He needs to undergo chemotherapy followed by a bone-marrow transplant. He needs funds to fight cancer.
Narayana has borne responsibilities from a young age
Every family has that one person they go to in times of trouble. In his family, that person is Narayana. Quiet and compassionate, people seek him out when they need help or advise. The eldest of 6 children, he is used to people looking to him to handle things especially after his father passed away.
Narayana has to live for his two small children
Narayana has two children – 5-year-old son Suhas and 8-month-old daughter Selvi. They haven’t seen him in 20 days and Suhas is starting to ask questions. “We have told him his father is in Hyderabad, so he asks the neighbour to take him there on his bike. I haven’t told him his father is sick, but he sees me and his grandmother and knows that something is wrong,” Krupa explains.
Narayana’s mother Mariamma is in the hospital with him and his wife has stayed back in Kurnool because the children need her. “He is her support – and it is killing her to see her son fighting a battle for his life. We are all praying he gets better and comes back to us,” Krupa says.
In the end, what helped Narayana decide was that his family still depended on him. He knows that he needs to get better and survive cancer for them. Despite his monthly income of just Rs 10,000 per month, he made the brave choice to come to Hyderabad and get treated. He borrowed some money for early treatment and has spent Rs 2 lakhs so far.
