29-year-old Sanjit has severe kidney failure for the last nine months and has been on dialysis since then. He has become too weak to work and only a kidney transplant can help him get better at this stage.
A damning diagnosis
"From as far back as I can remember, I have always seen my family suffering. So when I got to know about my disease, all I could think of was how much more my family will now suffer because of me," said Sanjit.
After doctors confirmed kidney failure, Sanjit moved to Bangalore to ensure timely treatment. Married just 2 years ago, he does not want to take any chance with his life. His family's survival dependant on him getting better. But his hope is wavering, as the doctors say that kidney transplant is the only option he has left. He has to arrange for funds before he can go to the hospital for a transplant that can save his life.
A mother's unconditional loveSanjit's 55-year-old mother who is willing to do whatever it takes has willingly offered to donate one of her kidney's to her son. Despite knowing the risks of having only one kidney at her age, Sanjit's mother is ready to take the plunge without paying any heed to the consequences.
"She's a brave woman, my mother. But it kills me to know that she too will have to undergo a painful surgery just to save me. How do I ever repay everything that she continues to do for me?" said Sanjit.
A family of humble meansSanjit and his brothers are daily wage labourers and barely make Rs 100 per day. The estimated cost of entire treatment is Rs 5 lakhs and with their meagre means, the family is finding it extremely difficult to arrange for the required funds.
