Story


"His screams keep me up all night, but I can do nothing to soothe him. My heart weeps as I watch him squirm in pain. The giant ball like knot behind his neck weighs almost as much as his head, growing with each passing day. It is tormenting his body, affecting his personality, and all I can do is watch him helplessly." Sanju, mother.

26-year-old Atul is a victim of a cancerous cyst. It grows in size if not treated on time. Surgery costing lakhs is required to remove the cyst.


He was born healthy, but there was a small pimple-sized knot behind his neck after he turned a year old. His parents ignored it, and as he turned 8 years old, it got more significant in size. It got worse, and his parents could do nothing as they had no money for treatment.

Now Atul can't lie down peacefully as his neck hurts so bad that he can't even sleep without a painkiller, which causes weakness in his body. His neck is extremely stiff, making it difficult to make any movement. He experiences constant headaches. He can't even lift heavy objects due to excessive strain on his neck. Pus flows from the cyst as he straightens his neck, so he always has to bend it forward. It is worse, affecting his spinal cord. Therefore he needs immediate treatment.


"My child's life is tough. He screams with pain. It feels like he has no future. He works with me to support me because we have no other option. He faints with weakness. I am a helpless father. Please heal my child." Vinay Partap, father.

Atul's father, Vinay, is a daily wage earner. He works whenever the work is available as his health is not that stable. At times days pass, and he gets no job. His mother, Sanju, is a housewife. In such times of financial crisis, Atul has to work to support his family despite his health condition.


He is troubled by his neck and back pain but has no other option. Being the eldest brother, he has to support his siblings and parents. They already borrowed money for Atul's treatment which they couldn't even pay off yet. Atul is in dire need of treatment. Otherwise, his disease will worsen, and he will get bedridden.

"I survive on the painkiller. My neck breaks with pain, but I can't tell anyone as I have to work to support my family. My shoulders are overburdened with the responsibility of my parents and siblings. I can't afford to die as they all look up to me." Atul Kumar.


Atul's life is hanging by a thread. His condition is very fragile, and he is short on time. He needs urgent treatment, and these parents are turning to you, hoping that you can help them. Your contributions can give Atul a chance at life and his parents' hope for a better future.
