“It took 1 year for the treatment, away from home and I couldn't go to work. Each day was so difficult for us. Vivek was brave the entire time, he never complained about his pain but I know how much he suffered and now... all of this is happening again. Where do I find the strength again.”-Jairam, father
Everything changed in one night
“He loved dancing so much, he would make me do it too. He loved going to school and hated going to tuition and in the evening he would play with his friends and...I wish everything was like before that’s all.”- Bhagyama, the mother
Since the diagnosis, Vivek couldn’t continue school. He had stayed mostly in the hospital, on the bed. Just when they thought their struggle was finally over and Vivek had recovered, his cancer came back again within two months of the treatment.
They have the courage but not the financial strength
“I put my all to save him but never thought he will suffer again. I have nothing left,I am just a tailor. My son is brave and he can go through this again but how... I am already in debt, no one wants to give more...”- Jairam
Vivek (17) needs chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant to fight blood cancer. The treatment will cost 18 lakhs. Jairam spent around 15 lakhs on his son’s treatment the last time by selling his house, gold and taking loans. He does not have the strength to bear the cost of treatment again, he is desperately in need of help.
“I see bruises and marks all over his body. He is losing his strength I...I don’t know what will happen. The doctors say only a transplant can save him but...how to afford it.”- Bhagyama
Bhagyama is a match for the bone marrow transplant. They have hope, they have the donor and if they get the financial support too, Vivek can survive. All of this will be possible only with your help.
