Help 3-year-old Samarth fight a cancerous brain tumor

A few months back 3-year-old Samarth, son of Raghavendra,  was daignosed with a cancerous brain condition called Medulloblastoma
"It started again after a month. For a week, my son would not get off the bed. He was that weak and tired from fever. The doctor kept prescribing medicines. When it happened over 4 times, our doctor said it was best to get him admitted. I never thought he would be diagnosed with brain cancer."

What is Medulloblastoma
Medulloblastoma is a cancerous tumor that starts in the region of the brain at the base of the skull. These tumors tend to spread to other parts of the brain and to the spinal cord if not treated at an early stage.

Samarth has been advised to undergo chemotherapy in order to treat his condition. The total cost of the chemo is around 8 lakh Rs.

Raghavendra only earns 8000 Rs a month and is unable to afford the cost of treatment. He is scared that without the funds he would be unable to save his son from cancer.
"This treatment will cost more than Rs. 8 Lakhs. I have spent Rs. 5 Lakhs already by borrowing heavily and exhausting my savings. Now I am afraid I will have to stop treatment for my son because I will run out of money."

He needs our help. Your contribution can save Samarth and give him the treatment he deserves.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your love and support. This couldn't have been possible without you.

It gives us immense pleasure in informing you all that Samarth has successfully completed his treatment and is doing well now. He recently finished radiotherapy. He developed a minor infection in between and was treated and has now recovered. An MRI is scheduled in the coming few days to observe him closely and check for any irregularities. He is now on follow-ups.

Thank you everyone once again! This means a lot to us.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the overwhelming love and support that you have shown towards Samarth.

I have some good news to share with you today. Samarth has undergone the surgery in November and is showing a good response to the treatment.

He has also completed the chemotherapy session after the surgery as a precautionary treatment. We will be visiting the hospital on Monday and the doctors will be suggesting the future course of action based on his health. He was hospitalised recently as he was nauseous and his blood count had reduced, but the doctors suggest that this is normal and he has recovered from these side effects.

He is a really jovial kid and likes playing a lot. Playing pranks and making sure he is being chased has become like an everyday routine. I would like to thank you all once again. Please do pray for his health and speedy recovery. Will keep you posted.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for the support you have shown Samarth. He is doing better now and he has undergone his first chemotherapy cycle. His response to the chemotherapy cycle was good and he did not have any side effects as such. The doctors have adviced a follow up on the 30th of this month, based on his health and the reports they will be suggesting the date for the next chemotherapy cycle.

He turned '3' this November third and we just cannot say how much the support that you have shown us means. This will definitely help him to fight this ailment hard and come back to us completely hale and hearty. Would request you to please pray for his health and speedy recovery.
