This is the story of MD Shaad, a 3 year old blood cancer patient who has been battling cancer for the last one year.
His father MD Ikramul Ansari who is a labour worker, a resident of Dhanbaad district of Jharkhand, has been going through immense difficulties to bring his son to CMC which is the best hospital for the child's type of cancer. All his earnings had been going towards supporting his child. At this time, lockdown struck upon them and they were stranded in Vellore, having to pay room rent even though, they had to get back to Jharkhand and return in 6 months for chemo. Through an NGO we helped them travel back and now also come back to Vellore. This type of cancer is highly curable in children, however the cost of treatment of chemotherapy is 8 lakhs. This is not affordable by the family. The amount is very high, but millions of droplets together make an ocean! So open up your kind hearts, keep aside your reservations, appeal to your true self and help this child in genuine need. I cannot sleep in nights, thinking about this child's condition. If we help in time, we can surely save him. Let India not lose a bright mind of tomorrow to cancer today!
