“It had hardly been 6 months since the birth of my first child that I performed his last rites. Our baby spent his last 4 days in the hospital before he left us. The incident left us paranoid. Every time my second child fell ill, we would rush him to the hospital praying it would not turn out to be a liver problem. 2 years went by, and he remained healthy, That is when Ananya came into this world, our daughter. We were overjoyed to have a daughter. She is so beautiful!” Ananya’s father Jitheesh says.
“It was like a déjà vu. That was the same age, the same symptom. I just knew it could not be the same ending,” Jitheesh sounds strong.
“Here, they provided free treatment for Cancer, but Liver problems were not covered. By the time we travelled to the hospital and completed the tests, the Rs. 4-5,000 we had brought with us got over. We had to return for a follow-up in a few days, but we only had enough money to return, and so we just did that.”
“An amount in lakhs is something I have not thought about even in my dreams. When I was told the cost of the surgery, my head started reeling. I really thought I would faint. I have no friends who would be rich enough to pool in that kind of money, I really have no way to get through this, but I have promised my baby I will not let anything happen to her.”
