"The hardest thing for a mother to do is to look at her sick child and know that she cannot afford the cost of his treatment".
11-year-old Vedansh is a blood cancer patient. Every day is a struggle for him. He is terrified of going to the hospital, but the treatment is the only thing keeping him alive. He can be saved if his family can afford the treatment.
He was diagnosed because of a severe stomach ache
Vedansh fell sick again. This time, Veena was determined to admit him. They had previously consulted with Dr Vinay Bohara - and now went to him at CHL in Indore. Dr Vinay diagnosed Vedansh with Leukemia - blood cancer.
Vedansh's illness has changed the family
Veena and Rajan live far away from the hospital. They cannot afford to have Vedansh admitted in the hospital. They have temporarily moved in with Veena's sister, as her place is closer to the hospital. Vedansh's brother Tushar stays with his grandparents, and goes to school from there. Lately, says Veena- Tushar has been feeling lonely without his family, and worries about never seeing his brother again.
