“The pain started from his leg and now it has spread to his entire body. It hurts him so much that he cries for hours and becomes breathless while crying. His screams wake up the entire ward at night. His legs are like sticks now, and he can't move them without help!” - Nur Banu, mother
Nur Alam has Ewing Sarcoma - a type of cancerous tumour growing in bone or soft tissue, and it is eating his bones from the inside.
1900 kilometers in train with my sick child
“We took him to so many doctors in our village and the nearby cities too but my child was suffering more and more each day. I couldn't bear to see him like that. We thought taking him to a bigger city with better medical facilities is what we need to do but...”
The parents didn't have a single minute to lose, their son needed immediate treatment. But they couldn't afford a plane ticket so they had no choice but to take Nur Alam to Bangalore in a train. He travelled for 37 hours, crying in pain. But now after all their efforts, after finding out what it was, still they are helpless.
Chemotherapy can cure his cancer but...The parents can’t afford the cost of the treatment. Abdul is a labourer and his income is not enough. Moreover, the family has been in Bangalore for a month now and all this while Abdul couldn’t earn that little money also. 16 lakhs is way too much for them.
“1 lakh is all we had and that was not even enough for his tests and medicines. We don’t even have enough money to feed Alam. Please help me, I beg you.” - Nur Banu
