Her family travelled from West Bengal to Bangalore in search of a cure
For daily-wage farmers, Gautam and Neetu Patra, their daughter’s illness came as a shock. They did not know how to react when she complained of twitching and spasms in her right hand one day. Hoping it would fade away, they advised her to rest. When it happened again, they rushed to a hospital. The doctor suggested a CT scan of the brain, which confirmed a brain tumor.
“We were referred to Bangalore, so we came here and had to go through many tests. We did not know how much all this would cost, and what she needed. Everyone in my family, sold their tiny bits of land. With about Rs. 1.5 lakhs, we admitted her to the hospital. Scans showed she had a brain tumor. She was immediately operated on, but a biopsy of the tumor showed that it was cancer.”
