His 3 Year Old Has Cancer And This Father Is Striving To Save His Son

3-year-old Ritam Chakraborthy had a fever. A casual visit to the doctor revealed a terrible diagnosis. He has blood cancer and the family is still in denial about their baby boy fighting such a terrible disease.

Sarath, Ritam’s father is a devout Brahmin, following the family tradition of working as a priest at a local temple. The family is from Jamtala, Jharkhand. They live on an unstable income from pujas and manage food with the Prasad from the temple. Ritam is the youngest of two, with a 7-year-old brother who is in 2nd standard.


“Around May 12th, he had a high fever. We took him to the doctor because it came with a blister near his eye. We thought it was because of heat. The doctor suggested a blood test and saw that his haemoglobin was extremely low. He gave medicines and asked us to return after a few days.”

When Ritam’s fever did not subside and his blister got worse, the family took him to another doctor who suspected it was more than just a viral fever. He suggested they take him to a bigger hospital. On 25th May, the family rushed their son to Kolkata.

The family began collecting money from friends and relatives to pay the hospital bills, while Ritam was being treated. After chemotherapy, Ritam needs a bone marrow transplant to cure him of cancer.

“He does not know what is happening to him. He is so scared and keeps crying throughout the day as they keep pricking him with needles. I cannot bear to see him this way. Tell me how to comfort my 3-year-old?”



Ritam’s father has been praying every day hoping a miracle would save his son. He is unable to afford this cost. With the family in Bangalore, they do not have the means to earn whatever little they had. They need all the help they can get to save this little boy.

Your contribution would save 3-year-old Ritam from cancer.

Dear Supporters,

We are immensely happy to share that Ritam is doing better now. He is currently undergoing the fourth cycle of chemotherapy. He has normal side effects like weakness, hair fall, nausea etc. There are no transfusions that take place but he is being administered injections on a daily basis.

The doctors have advised that the treatment should continue for four more months. They are very optimistic about his response to the treatment and suggest that he might not require a bone marrow transplant.

Thank you for all the love and support. We request you to please keep him in your prayers. Will keep you posted on his health and treatment.

Regards,
Team Milaap.
