“I didn’t even recover completely from my surgery and my son is fighting for his life. After being through so much, after my near-death experience, we thought the worst was behind us but no. I still can’t believe that my son has cancer. And the scariest part is that, I am unable to afford his treatment," - Vishwanath, father of 11-year-old Vedanth.
Vishwanath suffered from brain hemorrhage and underwent a major surgery just 6 months ago. Vedanth was a very active and happy child.

As soon as he stepped into the house after school, he slept on his bed instantly. He was always tired and lost his appetite.

His parents were devastated when they got to know that Vedanth has cancer. They brought him to Bangalore for his treatment from their hometown in Udipi. While their elder daughter (15) stayed back which her aunt. She is constantly worried about her brother and keeps asking about him but the parents can't explain her little brother's struggle.

I was so terrified of losing him and now… I don’t know if I can handle this, but I know I have to be strong, stronger than ever for my child. He is already so weak, I don’t even want to imagine what he has to go through ahead," - Nirmala
