He needs chemotherapy to survive5-year-old Rohit suffers from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow that affects white blood cells. It occurs when a bone marrow cell develops errors in its DNA. Rohit is highly likely to recover completely but he has to go through rigorous chemotherapy and supportive care.
“When we heard he has cancer, it was hard to believe. We went to different doctors in hopes that it would prove to be an accidental or wrong diagnosis... but it wasn’t. Within a week he had to be admitted in the hospital for blood transfusion and further tests. Soon we were asked to take him to a bigger hospital for treatment. Chemotherapy is the only way he can survive, but we are failing to afford it.” - Raju, father
Merely a tailor, this father cannot afford his son's cancer treatment
“I stitch clothes for a living and I never felt or thought low of my work. But today, when I look at my son crying and suffering in pain, I just wish I was not a mere tailor... I am failing to save my son, even though I'm doing all I can. I don’t want to lose him.” - Raju
Chumki is a homemaker and Raju works as a tailor. What he earns for the day is what puts food on the table - they practically live hand to mouth. Raju's income is nowhere near enough to meet Rohit's treatment expenses, i.e Rs 15 lakhs.
They need your help
“I have never seen my son so weak and dull. He loves to play and talk endlessly. It took just one month for this wretched disease to turn my child’s life upside down. He needs prolonged treatment to survive. It is a long battle, I know, but the fight hasn't even begun and yet we're already struggling. Our son, who has barely seen the world, is on the verge of losing his life. It kills us that we are helpless in saving our son.” - Chumki
Rohit is a bright child with a bright future but cancer is killing him slowly. He needs your help to win against cancer. Your small contribution can make a huge difference in this 5-year-old’s life.
