This 2-Year-Old Can't Even Open His Mouth To Eat Because Of Painful Cancer

A high fever and a terrible weakness - that’s all little Protik had. His parents, Litan and Priyanka didn’t waste a single moment to take their son to the doctor. But they never expected to hear what the doctor told them. Protik’s test results were the rudest shock they have got in their life - it said their son has cancer.

Protik can’t even speak because of his pain

2-year-old Protik is in dire need of chemotherapy. That’s his only hope to beat Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, which is a deadly form of blood cancer.


“He is so weak that he can’t even open his mouth to speak, let alone eat or drink anything.Every day we live in the fear of losing him. His painful screams just breaks my heart…”– Litan, Protik’s father. 


They have travelled from their village to come to Mumbai for their son’s treatment. They have even rented out a place but now they can’t afford to continue the expenses. It costs over Rs. 20,000 every month just to meet basic needs. They have borrowed from everyone they know - they don’t know who to go to for help.


“The chemo has left him very irritated. He is always cranky, he screams a lot these days. Gone are the days when he would sleep at the sound of my lullaby. There are days where he just won’t eat anything. All this is so unfair…” - Priyanka, mother breaks down.  


Litan Banik works as a labourer in a shop and he earns a meagre sum Rs. 7000 per month. Litam’s old father is begging other villagers for money now, while the desperate parents are spending sleepless nights worrying about the future of their baby boy. They’ve sold whatever they could and now are left with no savings in order to pay 5 lakhs for the continued treatment.
