They were a blessing to this motherPooja had a miscarriage early on in her marriage and when she was pregnant with the twins, she was terrified that she would lose them too. She was scared to death when they were prematurely born. For almost a month both her children were in the ICU struggling to survive and the poor mother prayed to God that they should never face anything like this ever again.
“I couldn’t believe it when they said my child has cancer. They say his condition is very serious and no medicine can save him. There is only one option- a bone marrow transplant but we will never be able to afford a treatment like that." - Pooja
I don't have the luxury to skip work even for a dayParveen, the father, is a vegetable vendor and his income is only enough to put food on the table. For the last 4 months, he has struggled a lot to keep the house running.
“People like me don’t have the luxury to stay at home safe. If I don’t step out and sell the vegetables, there will be no food for my family for that day. I don’t go near my children, fearing the virus might get to them, I stay as far away as possible from them. In a condition like this, how will I afford my son’s treatment that will cost me lakhs?” - Parveen
He asks me only one thing- when can he play with his brother again?By gathering every rupee that they had, they were able to start Krish’s chemotherapy which is needed to stop the spread of cancer but they are struggling to afford anything further. The little child is now suffering from a very high fever, one of the side effects of the treatment.
“He struggles to even open his eyes let alone play or talk to me. On days when he has a little energy, he asks me only one thing, ‘Where is Harsh? When can I play with him?’. He misses his brother a lot and whenever possible they talk on a video call. I want to take him back home, back to our normal life. Watching him go through all of this is so painful, it’s so hard not to cry in front of him.” - Pooja, trying to hold back her tears
