Story


"I am afraid to look into the mirror. My bizarre-looking face scares me. Why am I born like this? It would have been better if I had died rather than living such vulnerable life. I cannot listen, hear or see properly. If I don't get proper treatment, I will die. Please help me." Jagdish.

19-year-old Jagdish is living a dark life away from colours of happiness. Nineteen years of pain, suffering, humiliation and embarrassment have ruined Jagdish's life. Apart from the ungainly look, he suffers from multiple health complications.


When Jagdish turned six months old, he developed a little pimple on his nose. Parents thought it would go away with time. However, things turned worse as that tiny pimple began to spread over his entire nose and then towards his left eye. Meanwhile, his father brought him to the doctor for treatment, and the doctor prescribed drugs for a few days, but that did not provide any comfort.

The cyst has expanded over his face and nearly covered his left side, so he cannot see anything from the left side. He can't breathe properly since the cyst has partially blocked his airways, and he occasionally feels dizzy and unconscious.


There is a continuous flow of blood at times. In addition, he finds trouble eating as he cannot open his mouth completely. He started complaining of hearing loss since the cyst had expanded near his ear. After years of humiliation, he has lost his health, self-confidence and precious childhood.

"I am dying every day looking at my child. I can't do anything for him. Please, God, answer my prayers." Meena Devi, mother.


"We sold off every little thing we had so my son could get the treatment he needs. But whatever we have and whatever we borrow is not enough. We made every possible effort, but nothing could cover the cost of the whole treatment." Chand Kishor, father

Chand Kishor, Jagdish's father, is a labourer. He earns merely Rs 6000 in a month. So he liquidated everything he had to save his son's life. He borrowed money from relatives but couldn't gather enough to support his child's treatment. Meena Devi, Jagdish's mother, is a housewife who looks after the children and does domestic chores. They are helplessly looking at their son, crying in isolation. As a result, parents are pleading with folded hands to save their child from misery.


Jagdish can live a long life with a bright future once the cyst is removed. Your contributions will help him get the surgeries he needs. You can be his beacon of hope.
