This 23-year-old B.A student from West Bengal was looking forward to complete his education and get a new job. However, Krishanu's dreams were shattered when he was diagnosed with bone cancer in the femur bone upon returning from his school exams.
"Few months back, while I was returning home after giving my exams, I fell down from my cycle. I got home with so much pain in my knees. Something did not seem right, and I thought that my bone must have been broken because when you generally fall down, it shouldn't hurt this much.
We went to the doctor and he diagnosed me with bone cancer. Due to the cancer, my bones had become extremely fragile and hence even the slightest hit could break them", said Krishanu. "I think this happened sometime in March. I have been in pain ever since",
"Please just save my son"
Krishanu was receiving his cancer treatment at Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital. But due to his accident, his treatment had to be stopped. The doctors referred him to Narayana Health for knee replacement surgery. It is only after this surgery, will the doctors carry out four remaining sessions of chemotherapy to rid him of the fatal disease.
"He is so much in pain for an year now. Please someone make it stop. Please help me give a life my son deserves", said Krishanu's father, Joydev Sardar.
Krishanu's father owns a tea shop. His younger brother is also a student. Their parents have somehow arranged 2 lakhs for Krishanu's cancer treatment, but now this knee replacement due to the brittle bones, is an added burden on them. They are struggling to manage the funds.
"I am not scared for my life. I just want my parents to be at peace. And maybe, for this pain to go away", says Krishanu.
The income of Rs. 4000 is barely enough to feed the family. As Krishanu's treatment progressed, the family lost everything. Now his doctors have recommended a knee replacement surgery to save Krishanu.
How you can help
Krishanu has a whole life ahead of him but he is fighting to save his life. He can saved if his family can afford the surgery. Funds raised for this fundraiser will help this 23-year-old stay healthy and alive.
