“Her blood levels were dangerously down and she needed an immediate blood transfusion. But her veins... they couldn’t find her veins for almost an hour. She was crying so much and then she fainted. I thought we lost her.” - Parvati, the mother
Just when the parents thought everything is okay, the doctors told them ‘If she is not taken to a bigger hospital immediately, I am sorry but she won’t be able to survive.' Sunanda was diagnosed with Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia, a type of blood cancer. Her only cure is chemotherapy.
I would have lost her that night itselfParvati and Binoy live in an interior village on the outskirts of Kolkata and they had to take Sunanda to Bengaluru immediately for treatment. But they had no time in their hands and hundreds of kilometers to cover.
“Her life was in danger and coming by train would have taken 3 days to reach, but we did not have that much time nor did we have the money. It was only with the help of my employer that I could afford the flight tickets. Otherwise… otherwise, I would have lost my daughter that night itself.” - Bijoy
Bijoy cannot afford his daughter's chemotherapy
“Even though my income was less, it was enough to run the house. After Sunanda was born, our house was always full of joy. I would desperately wait for my work to get over so that I could go and spend some time with her. We were a happy family and look at us now…”
Bijoy is a worker in a small gold-shop. He borrowed money from his employer for Sunanda’s treatment but it is not enough. The treatment will cost 10 lakh rupees which includes chemotherapy, supportive medicines and the ward stay.
