“Unlike other children his age, Rehan was not very energetic. Visits to the doctor became a part of our daily routine. But in our heart we hoped that he would get better soon. Now he is lying down in a hospital bed fighting cancer and the only thought on my mind is to take him back home, fully cured. But with no job in hand, I don't know how that is possible. I had to choose between my son and my job, and I chose Rehan.” - Ajay, father.
Rehan hides behind his mom every time the doctors come to check on himRehan is very scared of the doctors and nurses who constantly come to check on him. He is afraid that every time they come they are going to pierce his skin with sharp needles. He hides behind his mother, Pooja and pleads her to ask the doctors to go. But Rehan, who is fighting blood cancer, is in urgent need of chemotherapy. He doesn’t know that the only way he can get better is through this.

With no one to help, Ajay has lost his job while taking care of his sonFor the last two months, Ajay has been busy taking care of his little son. He hasn’t been able to go to the garment shop where he works. The family's only source of income stopped a month ago when Ajay lost his job.
“I have lost my job but I know that bringing my son to Bangalore from Kolkata was the right decision. Now, I am looking for a job here so that I can bear the expenses for Rehan’s daily medicines.”
