“Even then, we thought Girish had dengue and went for a blood test. We do not really have big doctors and hospitals around. Even if we do, we cannot afford that. We make around Rs. 200 a day each, and it’s a family of 5 including my older son and my mother. To us, having to go to the hospital means having to spend the money we are missing with the day’s work.”
A disease more dangerous than Cancer:
“I will never forget that evening, the overnight bus to Bangalore, and the diagnosis that came after. My little son was suffering from a disease worse than cancer. He needed to be given blood constantly so that I could keep him alive. This meant many more trips to the big city, many more days of missing work, maybe many days of my family going hungry.”
“My wife had to stop working. Now, it was the 5 of us, and just my wages. We had to accommodate the trips to the hospital, and the treatment as well. That itself would cost us more than twice our household income.”
Why you should help:
“They say that I still have a chance to save him. As his father, I would go to any extent to save him, and I hate feeling so helpless. He’s too small to battle death. He has barely seen life. I really don’t know who you kind people are, but to me you all are Gods. I can only pray and hope I can give my son this second chance at life,” his voice breaks.
Your support can give this little boy a second chance at life.Supporting Document
