All panic struck when Debebrata noticed the blood stains.Debabrata used to work at a small provisions store as a helper, earning a meager income to support his mother and himself. When he noticed that he had vomited, with stains of blood, he knew it was something serious.
"When we went to the doctor, the scans showed there was a lump inside his chest. A biopsy brought our worst nightmare. Debabrata has cancerous tumors that need immediate treatment otherwise I will lose him just like I lost my husband."
He lost his father, unable to afford treatmentDebabrata’s father had also been diagnosed with Blood Cancer. The family begged and borrowed but could not pool enough to treat him. Unfortunately, they had to helplessly watch him die a slow, painful death.
"I have seen my husband go through the same thing. I know what it takes to fight the disease until the last dying breath. If I need to protect my son from the same fate, he needs 4 cycles of chemotherapy."
She is now begging to collect alms for his treatmentDebabrata’s mother Nirupama is completely broken now. With no means to save her only son, the widowed mother is now forced begging for alms on the streets to continue his treatment. With some support from her neighbours and distant relatives, she has obtained the diagnosis and provided him with medical care so far. However, she has no way to arrange for the funds needed for chemotherapy.
With some support from us, she can save her son’s life
