When Their Peaceful Life Changed Overnight
JO and his wife, Litty, are from Idukki District in Kerala. Jo is a farmer and Litty is a homemaker. Tom is their only son and attends Anganwadi in their village. Their peaceful life changed overnight when Tom was diagnosed with Leukemia (B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). Tom is currently admitted in CMC Vellore for advanced treatment. According to the doctors, the ideal treatment for this disease is chemotherapy followed by Stem Cell Transplant. The estimated cost of the Stem Cell Transplant would be as high as Rs. 50, 00000. Jo is not in a position to raise such a huge amount as his only source of income is farming.
This Mother Has No Answer To Her Son's Questions On Returning Home
Tom's day starts by visiting the doctor and returning to the small rented place near the hospital. His relatives who came over gave him few toys to play with and he treasures these by keeping it near his bed. When he is done playing with his toys, he is reminded of his village and his friends. He goes to his mother and hugs her tight. Litty knows what he is going to ask her next but she has no answer. She has tried telling him that he has to stay at Vellore till the doctor's say so but he is not convinced. He wants to know more.
At these times, Jo and Litty try to distract Tom by discussing his favourite games. What else can they do? They need him to stay happy and smiling and are ready to do whatever it takes to.
