Hemanth was diagnosed at age 5
“I don't remember how much we have spent on his treatment. Sometimes, we spent a few hundreds, sometimes thousands and even lakhs. We sold off our 2-acre family land for his treatment. We knew we couldn't get a surgery so we spent as much as we needed to keep him healthy,” she explains.

“Even though he is retired, I went to our doctor in Pamidi. I poured out all my concerns to him and he scolded me for giving up on treatment. He convinced me to bring Hemanth to to Bangalore and promised to put me in touch with doctors who would save him,” explains Radha.
