My little boy has cancer and even if I work extra hours, I can never afford the treatment. Everyday, I live in the fear that the disease will take him away from me forever,” - Abhimaan, father.
Sanskar till a few months back was a cheerful little boy just like any other 3 year old. He dreams of becoming a police officer when he grows up. He would do many many rounds around his house with the gun in his hand catching the thieves. But off late he started falling sick very often. His weight started dropping and even a small walk till his best friend’s house would worn him out. His parents who are both farm labourers could not understand what was going wrong with their beloved son.
A small test asked to be conducted by the doctor diagnosed Sanskar with blood cancer. He has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia - a type of blood cancer that affects the bone marrow and white blood cells. He is often in acute pain and prone to infections. His father Abhimaan Magar is a daily wage worker in a farm at Usmanabad with meagre income of Rs. 10,000 -13,000 per month and a family of 4 to be taken care of. Abhimaan has somehow managed to start Sanskar’s initial treatment by borrowing funds from his friends and family.
But all those funds have dried up too and he now needs urgent monetary support to save his dying son.
A spirited little boy who wants to play again
Sanskar is an innocent little boy who has no idea of his life threatening illness. All he knows is that if he behaves well, listens to the doctor’s and nurse didi’s, he will get well soon and go back to his home. He is very understanding and stays with his kaki, chachu or the attending nurses in the hospital while his parents are out for work. Every evening when Sanskar meets his mother the first question he asks is “Are we going home today”? Putting up a brave face his mother hugs him and tells him “Very soon baala (My child)”.
Sanskar trusts his mother and only with your help will this mother be able to keep her promise to her son.
An emotionally strong family needs your financial support to save their son
In all the unexpected tragic turn of events, there is one silver lining and that is Sanskar’s disease has been diagnosed at a very early stage and is completely curable. The results of his initial treatment are also positive. A few rounds of chemotherapy followed by regular treatment will cure him completely giving him a chance to live a happy and healthy life.
The cost of his treatment is Rs 7,00,000 and the family looks up to your financial support to give their son a second chance to live.
