Help This 1-year-old Whose Cancer Has Spread To His Chest

"Rihan should be in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy. His cancer is spreading – it is now in his chest and stomach. Instead of fighting it, he’s at home, spending every minute in unbearable pain." - Riyas

Rihan cries all night. He cannot talk yet, but his parents understand the pain he’s going through. Unfortunately, Riyas and Parveen cannot do anything but watch him suffer – they have no means to even start his life-saving treatment. If they delay his treatment any longer, they could lose him forever.

'A lump on his genitals turned out to be a tumor and he needed surgery'

8 months ago, when Parveen was giving Rihan a bath, she noticed a small lump on his penis. Her concerns grew when the swelling increased. Riyas and Parveen took him to a hospital where he was diagnosed with Yolk Sac tumor, a rare, malignant tumor of cells that line the yolk sac of the embryo. These cells normally become testes. It all happened so quickly, Parveen and Riyas didn’t have any time to waste. Rihan’s tumour was surgically removed.
Happy and playful Rihan before cancer took over his body

'That was not the end, it came back and now it is killing him'

For 3 months, Rihan seemed to be cancer-free. His reports were all normal. The parents let go of their anxiety but a few follow-ups later, they got worse news. Suddenly, Rihan's condition deteriorated. He was crying non-stop and had a high fever for days.

"The doctors asked us to take him to a hospital in Bangalore – his cancer had spread to his chest and stomach. We just ran from the hospital to the bus stand, and caught a bus to Bangalore. He was in a lot of pain. He couldn’t breathe because of his cough and cold, and as soon as we reached the hospital, he was given oxygen support." - Riyas


They came back home without any treatment

Rihan needs chemotherapy. Ideally, he was to start the first cycle on the day they admitted him. Riyas could not afford the medical bills, so he returned to Bidadi with his son.

"I had no money. I went with Rs. 1000 to the hospital. Chemotherapy costs lakhs. Now I risk losing my son because he did not even get one cycle. If it spreads to his blood, he will die." - Riyas

'I can't make 6 lakhs even if I worked continuously for a year, and my son doesn't have that much time'

Riyaz is a construction worker in Bidadi, Karnataka who earns Rs 500 per day. With this, he manages to pay rent for his small house and feed his family. He barely has anything left to save. He needs Rs 6 lakhs for the treatment which he cannot earn even if he works the whole year. 

Rihan's condition is critical and they do not have any time left with them, but they took him back home with a heavy heart because they do not have anything left with them to continue treatment.


Baby Rihan can have a chance to fight cancer with your help.
