Story


"The sight of my baby with this dreadful cyst makes my heartache. I can't do anything to relieve him of his pain, and so I pray relentlessly hoping that God will have mercy on him. He finds it hard to perform basic activities like eating or speaking. But what can I do? I want my baby to live a pain-free life and get rid of this tumour, but I have no money.  Is this too much to ask for?" - Aisha, mother

Alarming alert! Baby Adil has a growing tumour inside his mouth that is qucikly taking hold of him, and affecting his head, ears and other body parts.


3-year-old Adil's woes began when he was born with a little cyst on his cheek. Initially, it was a small benign cyst that quickly turned cancerous due to lack of proper treatment, because of which he is leading a life of suffering and pain at such a tender age. The doctors have assured that Adil can be saved, but he will require multiple surgeries and prolonged treatment, including plastic surgeries. 

"At first, it was hardly noticeable, and we didn't even think much about it. But when it started getting bigger and he complained of pain, we realised it was serious and rushed him to a hospital after borrowing money from our friends and family. We were shocked to discover that our negligence had caused a cancerous tumour in our child, and he is paying a heavy price for the delay now. The doctor told us that any further wait could cost him his life!" - Adil's grandmother


Adil spends his days and nights in restlessness, as the pus-filled cyst wreaks havoc on his life. The cyst is now the size of a ball, and he also has a big blister on his tongue. The pain it inflicts on him makes it hard for him to even open his mouth, due to which he is unable to eat or speak properly. 

As his mother feeds him, tears fall uncontrollably from his eyes. With the tumour taking control over his face, he cannot hear from his left ear and his vision in his left eye has been impaired. He often complains of splitting headaches. His family fears that his helath will only only deteriorate as his cyst grows, and claim his life.


"There isn't single day where I don't wake up in the middle of the night to lull him back to sleep. He wakes up crying from the pain and discomfort. As days pass us by, I look at my child helplessly and fear that there might come a day where this tumour may take him away from us forever." - Aisha

Adil's father, Ajmeruddin, a poor labourer, is battling hardships each day to feed his 7-member family. Even though he struggles with his livelihood, he has left no stone unturned to give his child a healthy life. The sole breadwinner of the family, he is working relentlessly in hopes of gathering enough money for his child's surgery. But, looking at his income and family size, it seems impossible. His child is his hope for a better future, but now, those very same hopes are slowly waning with each day that Adil goes without treatment.


With no resources in hand and a scanty income, the family is knocking on every possible door to save their little bundle of hope, leaving them disheartened. The family resides in a shattered dwelling, where their only hope to get out of their impoverished state is their son, who will study, build his career and turn their lives around. But, this can only happen if Adil gets proper treatment.
 
"My son can't openly tell us that he is in pain, because of the blister in his mouth. I want him to have a healthy life and a successful career, but we can't afford his surgery. My husband only earns enough to put food on the table. If my child gets treatment, we can all look forward to a good future." - Aisha


Despite life throwing frequent curveballs at this family, they have gathered the courage to come forward and ask for help, rather than  give up on their child's treatment. With their depleting finances, they have left everything to fate and await a Samaritan who can help them save their child's life.
