“I cannot bear to see my poor son in this condition. He cannot even get up to go to the washroom anymore. He urinates and passes stools on the bed itself. He cannot have solid food and is given liquids through a tube in the nose. Just a month ago, he was so active and healthy. Look at what has happened to him now.”- Swetha, mother.

Saurya is suffering from a type of cancer called Non-Hodgkin lymphoma that begins in the body’s germ-fighting immune system. It is fast-growing and can spread from one part of the body to another within days. This is exactly what has happened in Saurya’s case too – it has spread from his stomach to his legs, and completely weakened him. Without continued treatment, it can spread to other parts of his body and even kill him.

‘We believed it was harmless stomach pain, but we were so wrong’

7-year-old Saurya was playing outside with friends in late May, this year, when he started experiencing stomach pains. He stopped playing and went home immediately. His parents, Swetha and Sambunarayan, believed he may have pulled a muscle. But from that point on, Saurya’s health only started worsening. 

Doctors at first believed it was constipation and put him under observation. But the pain got more intense, and his parents had to admit him in a hospital, in their hometown in Nepal, for a few days.

“He did not get better at all. Finally doctors in Nepal told us to take him to India for a proper diagnosis. We brought him here, and the next thing we’re told is he has cancer. And that it is spreading fast.”- Sambunarayan.

The family, in happier times

‘I have helped many people… I pray I get the help I need so desperately now’

With great difficulty, Sambunarayan was able to pay for two cycles of chemotherapy that Saurya desperately required to stay alive and stable for now. But he has no more funds left for further treatment that is crucial for his son’s recovery.

“I work as a disaster awareness coordinator in Red Cross, Nepal. I have helped many people in their time of need. Now I am in need, and I hope you can understand my plight and help me save my son.” - Sambunarayan, father.

These parents are asking for your kind help to save their son whose condition is critical.
