7-year-Old Shajah is suffering from cancer.
Saleem from Kasaragod used to work in a shop. He left his work to take care of his 7-year-old son, Shajah who is diagnosed with cancer. His family of 5 were in for a shock when they found out their little son has cancer. Shajah has an elder brother and a younger sister.
Shajah underwent chemotherapy in a hospital in Mangalore in 2015. It was with much difficulty that the family arranged for funds, borrowing from relatives and friends. Shajah was cured of his cancer. The family’s prayers were answered and Shajah’s life was returning to normal.
But the family was in for another shock when doctors informed that the little one’s cancer has relapsed. Now Shajah needs to undergo a bone marrow transplant to be free from cancer.
His Father Was the Only Bread Winner.
The family was surviving on Saleem’s income but now that he is unemployed the family is helpless and sees no way to arrange funds for Shajah’s transplant
Over 6 lakhs was spent for his chemotherapy in 2015. Now the transplant will cost nearly 20 lakhs and this is a huge amount for the family. The monthly spend is Rs.10,000.
