“He fell down, unable to breathe. With one hand on his chest, he kept gasping for breath. It was a horrible sight and we were so scared. We immediately took him to the hospital. Since then, I've been trying my best to save him from this disease. I also have to take care of my disabled husband. I'm trying to do it all on my own, but I just can't.” - Aparna, mother.
Two months ago, Ajit and Aparna could never imagine the way their life would change. They got to know that their only child, Sayan is suffering from kidney disease. His disease is at a stage that only a transplant can save him. But these helpless parents don’t even have the money to buy Sayan’s medicines. They don’t know how they can save their son.
A few tests later, the worried parents were told that their son’s kidneys are giving up on him.
He doesn’t want to leave the house now, he fears it might kill himSince the day this teenager has got to know about his disease, he is terrified that he will die. He is weak and most of the time thirsty. But he knows that he is not allowed more than a few sips. He keeps asking his parents if he will ever be fine.
“What do I tell him? How can I tell him that we don’t have the money to afford his treatment - the only treatment that can save him?” - Ajit, father.
I cook for 10 families but even that’s not enough to save my only child’s lifeA near-fatal accident has left Ajit handicapped. He needs to support to walk, he can’t walk very fast. He was driving an auto a few months ago but then his health gave up on him. Now the only earning member in the family in Aparna.
“I cook for 10 families, I take on as much work as I can. But I need to stay at home to take care of Sayan too. I am managing somehow, we have spent almost a lakh for his treatment,” - Aparna.
Sayan’s parents are struggling to afford 10 lakhs that they need for the transplant. There’s no way they can arrange so much without your help.
