Manoj's parents did not want his life to be like theirs, they dreamt of a better life for himManoj's biggest wish is to earn well and take good care of his struggling parents. They are his inspiration. His mother Chandrama is the strongest woman he knows both physically and mentally. He hasn’t seen her lose hope or give up on her hardship. Even today, she stays just as strong looking after her son who has been diagnosed with cancer.
“Manoj was like any other 21-year-old before this disease. He who loves spending time with friends and family. He loves to travel and wished to take his parents around the world. He's a brilliant student who was pursuing an ITI diploma and further wished to study mechanical engineering. His parents did their best to educate their son and give him a good future.” – Manoj’s Uncle

If I could give up my own life to save my son, I wouldMadesh, Manoj’s father says he feels helpless when he looks at his son. He says if he could give up his life to save his son, he would do it willingly. Unfortunately, the only thing that can save his son is a bone marrow transplant that costs 15 lakhs.
“I used to earn 250 Rupees per day but now since I’m at the hospital with Manoj, I’m not getting even that. I am depending on my brothers for my basic needs like food and travel. Even they are not wealthy enough to do anything more than that. My wife and I give each other hope that our son would be normal again. Doctors say that the treatment to save my son would cost lakhs. Where will I go for so much money? I don’t even know how much is a lakh.” – Madesh, Manoj’s Father
They can only pray for their only son now, but you can do more - you can help save young Manoj.
