Jitesh has been in hospital for months and his condition has only just been diagnosed
For two weeks, Jitesh needed 24 injections just to live
“At first we took him to a hospital in Palghar. They started him on penicillin but then they stopped mid-way and discharged him. Unaware that the treatment was not over, we came back home. But in May, his condition became critical and we took him to the hospital again,” explains Neha.

“The doctors wanted to keep him in the hospital because he is so sick and needs to be monitored closely. But we brought him back because we don't have the funds needed to keep him there. Even now, he needs injections worth Rs 9,000 every day and we should not stop it,” Neha says.
It is hard to manage even the daily treatment at home

“We have settled bills worth Rs 3.5 lakhs and we need to pay another 1.5 lakhs to different vendors. Father's medicines are very expensive and we don't know how we will arrange for all of this. Even all the money we have paid is borrowed and we feel very alone and helpless without his help,” Neha says.
