“We have left everything behind and come to India from Nepal with one aim: take back our son healthy at any cost. He has been fighting acute blood cancer bravely for more than 2 years now. But his body is giving up now. Without an urgent bone marrow transplant, he will die. I am a poor daily wager who has been jobless ever since his treatment started. We are left with no more financial options and are are desperate for help.”-Bhaikishan Tamang, father of 11-year-old Mandip Tamang.
“The doctors in Nepal only told us that it may be cancer. We were scared nevertheless. Nobody in our family had faced this prospect before. He was so healthy – we couldn’t believe how a vibrant little boy like him would have something so deadly as cancer. I took him to Kathmandu within the next few days and there it was confirmed that he had blood cancer and needed to be started on chemo immediately.”-Bhaikishan.
“I got Mandip admitted to a hospital in India that specialized in cancer care. I sold my ancestral property that I had and used up all my savings. When even those were depleted, I borrowed money from friends to keep his treatment in full-swing. Even when Mandip would wince in pain from the needles and strong medicines, he would beg me everyday to take him back home. He desperately wants to go back to school and be a footballer when he grows up. I don't know if he will be able to do that ever.”-Bhaikishan.
“We had just started a new life. Mandip was doing so well at school. There was always a smile on his face – my poor boy even told me once how happy he is away from hospitals and medicines. When we heard his cancer had come back, we felt defeated. I cannot explain the helplessness I feel as a mother who can only watch her son go through the same painful cycle all over again.”-Manju, mother, with tears in her eyes.
“The doctors have told us that his cancer is more dangerous and advanced this time. His blood levels are dipping. There is no way he can survive this nightmare with chemotherapy alone. If he gets the transplant, he will be able to become healthy and normal again. He will be able to study and chase his dreams. But we are running out of time and funds to save our son. We are stranded in a strange city without money or help ”-Bhaikishan.
