An old picture of Sayfer
They said it is cancer but told us that there is hope for our boy - he wouldn’t have to lose his leg
“The doctors told us that Sayfer would not lose his leg but they have to operate on the cancerous tumor. With my elder son helping us and my husband, borrowing money at steep rates from moneylenders, we somehow arranged for the surgery,” - Imona Khatoon, mother.
But even after the surgery, Sayfer is not fully cured. He needs chemotherapy that would cost the family about Rs 4 lakhs.

Sayfer has withdrawn into a shell after he got to know that he is suffering from cancerGood in studies and always an active child, Sayfer would never spend a single minute of his day whiling away. He was always full of funny anecdotes that happened at school. But since few months, his older brother, Hazrat noticed that Sayfer was not quite himself - he had some problems while riding his cycle.
“Sayfer complained of a pain in his left leg. We took him to the local doctors but the medicines he gave didn’t make my brother any better. I saw him get weaker by the day. He almost stopped talking to all of us. It was terrible to see my younger brother struggle through so much pain,” - Hazrat, brother.
