This 3-Year-Old's Tumor Has Damaged His Brain Cells & Threatening Life

“When Naman underwent a surgery for his brain tumor, we hoped it would be the end of his sufferings. But it was just the beginning. We believed that the tumor had gone for good, but it has grown back near his eyes and threatens to make him blind. His left side has become weak because a few cells in his brain got damaged. Even after a year, he still can’t walk properly on his left leg and can’t hold anything with his left hand. I don't have the resources to help him win his battle against this aggressive tumor,” Naveen, Naman’s father.

What his parents believed was an eyesight issue turned out to be something worse

3-year-old Naman’s love for football and running about makes his parents think that he might be a sportsman one day. But all of these dreams may not come true because of Naman’s rare tumor.

“Last year since March, my child would complain of headaches every day before going to sleep. As he loved watching videos on my phone, Babita and I thought his eyesight might have a problem. Over a week or 2 when we were getting him tested, his headaches worsened. The MRI reports slapped us hard with reality- our son had a rapidly growing tumor and needed urgent treatment.”

Despite a surgery, Naman's tumor has come back stronger than ever

Little Naman has craniopharyngioma, a rare type of brain tumor. He had this since his birth, but sadly it couldn’t be detected until he was almost 3. Naman needed a surgery or radiotherapy without any delay. But being a toddler, his body wouldn't have been able to take the effects of radiotherapy. Therefore he underwent a surgery.

“We had no time to waste. Last year in June, my baby underwent a major surgery. After hours of surgery, only a part of his tumor could be removed. We had to go back for constant check-ups. The first 2 MRIs showed that the tumor is not growing back rapidly. We had to wait for Naman to grow a little. But in June when we did his MRI again, it was very late.”

Naman is at the brink of death and has very little time left

Naman’s tumor has grown back rapidly now. This time, surgery is no longer an option for him. The tumor is very close to his eyes and a surgery has a high chance of making him blind or worse, can even kill him. Radiotherapy is his only option now. The cancer is spreading badly every day. If Naveen doesn’t get his son treated soon, he will lose his child.

“In a situation where everyone loses hope, Babita and I have remained the strongest and are looking forward to take a healthy baby home.  He is becoming weaker than ever, but we are determined to not give up.”

Naveen’s struggles can no longer save his son, he needs urgent help

Naveen works in a private company. He has already spent Rs 7 lakhs and is now struggling to save his only son. He has to take his baby to the hospital every day to ensure that he lives. Now without support, Naveen will not be able to save his only baby from succumbing to this rare disease.

How you can help

3-year-old Naman is suffering from a rare brain tumor. Even after a major surgery, his tumor is growing back rapidly and will kill him without urgent radiotherapy. The cost required to save him now is Rs 3.5 lakhs and his father has nothing left to save him.

Your support will help this child get rid of brain tumor.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for showering blessings on my son.

Naman is at home and is feeling fine. He was undergoing radiotherapy but that has stopped now. Initially during the radiotherapy he would complain of frequent headaches everyday, sometime multiple times in a day. But now that has reduced.

His medication is going on and the doctors have asked him to undergo an MRi after two months so they can see the effects of radiotherapy.

Thank you all.

Dear Supporters,

I want to thank you all for your support. Here is an update about Naman's health.

He is at home now and his radiotherapy is over. Due to the radiotherapy his head hurts a lot. The doctors say that this is normal and usually happens, and he is receiving medication for the same. He has a check up scheduled in a few weeks. The doctor will let us know how he is doing when he goes for that check up.

After two months, an MRI will be conducted so that we can monitor how much the tumor has reduced after the radiotherapy. The doctors say that it will take some time for the tumor to reduce.

We are all praying and wishing for his speedy recovery. Thank you all for your support!
