“When he was born, they said he only had 10% chances of survival and that he might not make it. You can't even imagine what we went through. The thought of losing our child left us devastated. But my brave child kept fighting.” - Amit, the father
I couldn’t see him, I couldn’t touch himSonia and Amit’s baby was prematurely born in the 8th month of pregnancy. It led to many complications. Other then his low body weight and respiratory problem, he also has low blood sugar and meningitis- inflammation in the brain and spinal cord.

He fought death and is getting betterWithin a few days in the ICU, their baby’s health started to improve and he started gaining weight.
“When he was born he was just a few grams but now he is 1.5 kgs. I know it’s still very low but it is so much better than before. I could have lost him but he stayed and fought death.” - Sonia
However, his life is still in danger
“I can’t afford the treatment anymore. I am just a helper in a kirana store. I don’t get enough to afford even one day's cost of his treatment. But I managed it so far by taking advance salary and loans. But I don’t have any source left and he needs the treatment for 1 more week. I don’t want to lose him now... after so much struggle, I just can’t lose him.” - Amit
