Santhosh has left his job in Chennai and has moved to Hosur to his brother's place for the treatment
Santhosh is from Dharmapuri, he works in Chennai. He and his wife were living in Chennai until they moved to Hosur. He has to go to the hospital at least 2 days in a week and sometimes he has to be admitted for the chemo. As they don't have any support here, they shifted to his brother's place in Hosur. He hates to be dependant on others, but recognizes that there is no other choice.
Gowri's mental strength and determination has surprised everyone. In fact, it is her support that makes Santhosh believe in possibilities for the cure. Gowri is a nursing graduate and she wishes to pursue a job, but the situation doesn't permit her to do. She stays with her husband and takes care of him.
"It is so unfortunate that we have to go through this, I'm forcing myself to be strong and not to break down. I don't want him to feel bad for me or for anything. His health is my priority, I'm willing to do anything to save him. He is such a wonderful husband a wife could ask for. At this young age, he is worried only about me and his father and hardly thinks about himself. He deserves a life" says Gowri.
Santhosh's father is a farmer who sold his land to pay for his treatment. His father and his brother have still not come to terms with the reality, they couldn't believe that Santhosh is battling cancer. He has always been an active, fun-loving and a very kind person. Santhosh and Gowri are hopeful to recover and live a normal life.
