“He knows there is something wrong with his body. He hesitates to ask. We never got the courage to tell him. He is just 7! What would he even understand? If the disease doesn’t, fear might just kill him!”
"We roamed from one hospital to the other for 2 months. Nobody gave us an answer. Finally, we heard the worst news. A doctor told us after tests, that our son had just 6 months left because his liver was damaged."
"Here we discovered that whatever milk he was drinking was not getting absorbed. There was a blockage in his intestines and he needed a surgery. The surgery would be dangerous with his liver condition. We went for it anyway because he was bleeding on the inside. The government scheme helped us through it. "
"We had applied for PM and CM funds. We never received them. It has been years, and only now we have received a response. My husband, Srinivasa, is a coolie getting Rs. 300/day. With this we take care of our daughter (10 years) and our son. Our parents have been supporting us so far. Debt has chased us all our life."
“We used to send him to school for 2 days and that would exhaust him so much that he would be bedridden for 3 days. He even had epileptic seizures at school and we had to rush him to Rainbow.”
"We cannot afford to stay in the hospital or in the city. We take the night bus reach the city, get treatment and leave the same day. How can we afford a surgery that will cost us Rs. 16 lakhs?"
