“I feel like I am cursed. First my wife, then my elder son and now this cancer is taking away the only family I am left with- Vishnu. If I lose him too, who will I live for?”- Sankara, the father
Sankara blames himself for his elder son’s deathVishnu’s mother’s sudden demise in 2011 shook the entire family. She was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour and within days, she passed away. It was very hard for them to recover and just when they did, Vishnu’s elder brother was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia - blood cancer.
“He could have lived, he could have been with us right now but I couldn’t save him... I failed to save him. I begged and borrowed and tried everything I could but the cure, it was way beyond my capabilities. And now the same thing is happening to Vishnu…”
He watched his brother suffer and he is scared that the same will happen to himVishnu and his brother Pawan were very close to each other. Pawan’s death shook Vishnu to the core. His best friend was taken away from him and he still hasn’t recovered from the loss. Now, he is scared for himself but he is scared for his father the most.
“It’s only me and papa now. Without me, he will be alone. I want to live and take care of him, be with him… I don’t want to leave him too.” - Vishnu
I am just a labourer with no land or wealthVishnu needs chemotherapy to fight this deadly cancer but it is going to cost 10 lakh rupees. Sankara is a daily wage labourer and his income is not enough to bear such a cost.
“How do I comfort him? How do I say it’s going to be okay when I don’t know for myself what I am going to do. I am failing again and it’s scary. I can’t let this happen but...but I am helpless.”
Sankara is helpless and devastated. You are his only hope to save Vishnu. Your contribution can save him. Click here to help.
