My little Shrishail has been in hospital for the past three months. Unable to afford his treatment, it feels like we’re just counting the days until his cancer snatches him away completely.
Shrishail is terrified of the hospital. He begs us to take him home, where he can meet his friends and play with his sister.
He doesn’t fully understand the gravity of the situation, and that he has no chance of survival without treatment.
It all started in 2019 when my son was just 5 years old.
Yet, even after a few days, Shrishail kept complaining about the irritation in his eye.
However, that same night, as my son was sleeping, I noticed his body had turned pale. Upon checking his temperature I realised Shrishail had a fever, and immediately told Santhosh we had to take him to the hospital.
Now, my baby’s cancer has relapsed.
His illness has already left him with a deformity in his eye and two years of suffering.
Too young to understand what is happening, Shrishail is constantly crying and in pain.
This time, he will need a bone marrow transplant in addition to the chemotherapy to save his life. It’ll cost us Rs 25 lakh ($ 33422.04).
We’ve sold everything we own- including our land, which was our only source of income. Now we have nowhere left to go.
Your donations are the only hope our boy has. Please help save him before it's too late.
