“I had to leave my job. I had to leave my 12-year-old son with our relatives in Raichur so I could have my son treated at this hospital in Bangalore. They loaned me Rs. 80,000 when I left, but that was hardly enough for the first few days. Now he is unconscious, and if he doesn’t wake up, then we end our lives with poison.”
“Chetan first began to bleed from his mouth. It scared us out of our minds. We immediately rushed him to the doctor, who noticed that he had jaundice. This was in 2014. Soon, when he was not responding to the treatment, they ran a few more tests, and it took a while to figure out that what he really had was end-stage liver cirrhosis. His liver was failing, and because of the cirrhosis, the portal vein that carried blood through the liver was under immense pressure causing bleeding in the stomach, and blood vomit. Unfortunately, there is no treatment for it. His liver had to come back to normal.”
“With whatever few rupees we have, we will buy poison and end our lives if we lose Chetan”
Chetan needs to continue treatment as it is crucial to his survival and recovery. He is under medication and the family is unable to afford it.
Our help will not only save Chetan and but will save his whole family from a great tragedy.
