Raj Kumar and Uma Maheshwari have come all the way from Avinashi to Bangalore for the treatment. They are struggling to even pay for the travel to the hospital and to buy medicines but they can't turn a blind eye to the financial stress, they are determined to save their son's life.His mother is the donor for the transplant but they can't afford the cost"God has given a chance to save my son from the dreaded disease, I can't wait to see him grow without pain. I will not be able to forgive myself if I miss this chance. He deserves a life"
