Sayed came home from school. But I had never seen my child this dull. He was running a temperature. We rushed him to local government hospital. They said it could be due to weather change and should recover in couple of days. But the fever just would not subside. Soon we took him to a bigger hospital in Hubli and the doctors confirmed my son has Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a type of blood cancer. I remember sitting in the doctor's room, holding my son tight. The fear of losing a child the scariest feeling the world.
