Help This Bus-Conductor Save His 1-Year-Old Baby From Cancer

2 Year old Ruthik has been diagnosed with White Blood cell Cancer. He needs your support to undergo treatment for it.

Ruthvik had just completed one year when they found a lump in his neck. When they took him to the hospital – a cancer diagnosis was the last thing Srinivas and Chaithra expected. Ruthvik needed an immediate operation that removed the cancerous lump.

Not one, but three lumps were removed from Ruthvik's body and he started chemotherapy immediately. Finding the money for the treatment has been an uphill struggle for Srinivas. They sold off what little possessions they had to make sure Ruthvik got his treatment. 

Srinivas has earned nothing in the last one month
“I came to Bangalore and became a bus-conductor for BMTC on contract basis. Every month, I am paid depending on the number of days I work. But the last one month, Ruthvik has been very sick so we had to visit the hospital almost every other day. I  couldn't attend work and was paid nothing,” Srinivas explains.

Ruthvik has taken 10 cycles of chemotherapy for the cancer and the next 6-months his parents have been asked to keep a close eye on his condition. Even the slightest change in his condition needs to be reported to the doctor or his life could be in danger. 



Help Srinivas save his 1-year-old baby

Till now he has used up all his savings and heavily borrowed and spent over Rs 6 lakhs on Ruthvik's treatment. He needs another 6.3 lakhs to complete Ruthvik's treatment and save him from the aggressive blood cancer that is wracking his body.

Ruthvik has a very good chance of recovery if he gets the right treatment before the cancer spreads. The last few months have been a very difficult time for them, but not once did these brave parents give up hope. Your contribution will help them save their child's life –making their painful struggle worth it.

Dear Supporters,

Here is a quick update on Ruthik's health. He is undertaking chemotherapy and is done with one cycle of it. The second cycle, started a week back and will go on for another five weeks. His response to the treatment has been very positive. He has very mild side effects like cold, fever etc.

The doctors suggest that he will be administered another cycle of chemotherapy after this cycle has been administered. Then they will conduct a few tests, whose results will help ascertain the future course of action and they are very optimistic based on his response to the treatment so far.

Thank you all for all the love and support you have shown Ruthik. Will keep you posted. Please do pray for his speedy recovery.

Regards,
Team Milaap.
