Despite Losing All His Hair And Strength, This Boy Bravely Fights Cancer

“He’s been in the hospital for 3 months, and not a single day has passed without him being in pain. I don’t know what to do, he doesn’t even eat properly. Where will he get the strength to fight cancer? My Charan is just not the same anymore…” – Jyotsna, mother

The side effects are taking a toll on him, but it's the only thing that can save him

Charan is only 7 and he is fighting blood cancer. His parents did everything they could to start his treatment. He is now undergoing chemotherapy and his body is facing severe side effects.

“Every time he has his chemo cycle, he is getting infections and he starts vomiting. He feels so tired and weak..he’s lost so much weight. but he has to get it, it is the only option to save him.” - Jyotsna

I'm not as brave as my child

He keeps asking about all the medicines he is taking and why his hair is falling out but I have no answers. I just say that his health is not okay and he needs injections. He never complains, he is very brave. But I am not as brave as my child.” - Sathish, father

Charan even underwent surgery because of an infection (one of the side effects) that spread on the back of his shoulder but no matter what the treatment is, little Charan is fighting it bravely. He just doesn’t give up and watching him, Jyotsna and Sathish refuse to give up. Unfortunately, they have nothing to continue his chemotherapy.

Charan's brother waits for him at home, his parents are helpless 

“I work as a supervisor at a skill workshop, I don’t have the energy to bear the cost any further. I already borrowed 8-9 lakhs and exhausted all my savings... 15 lakhs more? It is way too much for me, how will I save my son?”

Charan’s elder brother is back at the village waiting for him to return home. He once in a while visits the hospital and refuses to go back. They both are very close and at this point the parents are helpless, unable to explain why Charan is in the hospital for so long.

“Everyday he calls and says he wants to come and be with Charan, but we don’t want him to see his little brother in pain. All I want is to take my child home but we have no source left now. We will lose our son if we are unable to arrange for the funds. We don't know what to do.” – Shathish

Your kind contribution can save little Charan's life. With your help, this family can take him back home safe.
