"Doctors asked us to take him to a bigger hospital. I sold the little piece of land I had to bring him to Chennai. He is my only child, I can't imagine losing him. It is unbearable to see him in constant pain. He is showing improvement after the chemo, so I will not give up at any cost." -
Upen Kaushik has completed one cycle of chemotherapy and needs three more cycles of intensive chemotherapy. Kaushik is scared of injections and he refuses to let anyone come near. This little boy who was once full of life is now fragile and exhausted. His pain and fears are heartbreaking.
Kaushik's mother Dippi spends sleepless nights and she has still not come to terms with Kaushik's condition. She does not understand the language spoken in Chennai and has no one to talk to. She feels anxious and refuses to leave Kaushik even for a moment.
Kaushik is pleading with us to take him back home. He doesn't understand why this is happening to him. I wish he recovers soon, I can't see my little one crying in pain. We don't have any money left with us, I dread going back home without him." - Dippi
Upen is a farmer and he has sold off the little piece of land he had to bring him to Chennai. They have rented a room here and have no source of income. Yet they are determined to save his life. Kaushik is showing signs of improvement. Doctors are hopeful that he'll recover soon if he completes the chemotherapy. This gives his parents the strength to continue the battle despite all odds.
Upen and Dippi have come all the way to Chennai from Assam. They have sold all their land. They are struggling to save their only child. There is a good chance of recovery if the treatment is completed. They need Rs 10 lakhs for the treatment which is beyond their means. Only your contributions can save Kaushik's life.
