This 6-Year-Old's Cancer Will Spread Rapidly Without Urgent Treatment

The only thing that distracts Gabriel from the world of needles and tubes that have now become his life, is drawing. He gets lost in his art and forgets his pain, even for a few minutes. But now, Gabriel has no escape from the excruciating pain of cancer. Whenever the nurses put a needle in him, he flinches and asks his parents ‘Why me?’ He wants to know why he is in the hospital and why his joints hurt so much that he can’t even move. Little does this innocent child know that blood cancer is destroying his body, cell by cell. He cannot survive without urgent treatment, but his parents are running out of money to save him.

“He has always been a very curious kid. We tell him to take rest but he comes up with more questions instead. His mother and I tell him all kinds of lies. Our poor baby believes us. I don’t know how much longer we can keep doing this”-Joseph Daniel, father of 6-year-old Gabriel.  

Little Gabriel’s life changed when he got a fever that refused to go away

Around 2-3 weeks back, 6-year-old Gabriel was so excited about going back to school after a long summer vacation. Before his excitement wore off, he fell sick with high fever that did not subside for a few days. Even several trips to the local doctor in his hometown of Porur in Chennai could not make him alright.

“We did a blood test soon to find out what was wrong with him. As soon as the test results came in, were referred to another super-specialty hospital because the doctor told us that things did not look good for him”-Jennifer, mother

This poor child had to undergo an urgent blood transfusion to prevent him from losing his life

Gabriel had abnormally low levels of hemoglobin and a very low platelet count in his blood. There was no time to waste and he got a transfusion as soon as he reached the new hospital. After a day or two, the doctors broke the news to his unassuming parents that their child had cancer. It shook them.

“Just a week ago he was telling about all the things he would like to do at school this new academic year. Now he has been diagnosed with cancer. This is devastating. Nothing could have prepared us for this.”-Joseph, father

Jennifer couldn't process her sadness and fell sick after learning that her son had cancer

Gabriel is incredibly close to his mother. Jennifer couldn’t hold back her emotions in front of the doctor when she learnt of his cancer, but tried to be calm in front of him. However, she fell ill soon after.

“She had burning fever for two days. We have a 3-year-old daughter too – it was very difficult for Jennifer to take care of her and deal with the fact that Gabriel was very ill. I saw her struggling with herself for the first time in my life”-Joseph

Joseph tried to sell the only piece of land he owned to fund his son’s treatment, but in vain

Joseph works in a private company in Chennai, for a modest salary. He was somehow able to take care of his three-member family without any problem till now. But Gabriel’s sickness has been a rude shock to him. He cannot fund his son’s treatment and needs help.

“I have spent almost Rs 2,80,000 on his treatment so far. I had to borrow from friends and family for arranging this amount. But Gabriel needs more than that to survive. An injection he has to get once every two weeks costs Rs 55,000 alone. How will I fund the rest of his treatment? Real estate is down and I am not even able to sell my land in this emergency”-Joseph

How you can help

Cancer has made Gabriel so weak and his whole body aches as a result now. He needs intensive chemotherapy to survive. His cancer is so fatal that it can spread to the rest of his body without proper treatment. His father, Joseph, has not gone to work for the past 3 weeks and therefore his financial condition is very poor. He has already used up all his savings for miscellaneous hospital costs till now. Gabriel deserves a chance to live, and you can give to him.

Your small contribution can help Gabriel fight deadly cancer and live

Dear Supporters,

My son underwent multiple tests recently, and reports said the cancer cells have relapsed and affected both BCR, ABL & CNS. Dr stated the treatment has to be restarted and expense will cost around 18 - 20 Lacs this time because a Bone Marrow Transplant would be required. We never expected this would happen again to our Child. I kindly request all to please support and share the campaign and help me in saving my child.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your support and love.

After the 30th March 2019 update, My son regular protocols going smoothly, we felt his health improvements based on the multiple tests.

But One month before my son had a headache in his backside head. And vomiting also he did, And his eye vision also was not in normal, he said he feels two images showing, While I see him in straight look, His left eye was moving one side (Crossed Eye). Then we contact eye specialists with our regular cancer treatment doctor knowledge in Sri Ramachandra Hospital, Chennai. They said the vision is normal no major issues on his eye, That happened due to power change, so we give Glasses to my son based on their report, but again cancer treatment doctor suggested taking an MRI test and consultation with neurology doctor in SRI Ramachandra Hospital. he also says it's nothing, And he gives one tablet to stop the Headache of backside head. But eye vision looks the same. But the Cancer Treatment doctor said after his regular LP treatment this Eye vision will change.

As per my son's regular maintenance, the LP process happened last Wednesday. During the time they took below the attached tests and said cancer cells affected his CNS. Doctors said again the treatment will start like the initial 2018 stage protocol, And the Expense also will come from 18 LAC to 20 LACS, Because this time if required Bone Marrow Transplant will be, Please help me to save my child.
