"When everyone comes together to save a person suffering from cancer, my sister’s husband was the first to bolt when she was diagnosed. Now she is fighting to stay alive to support her children."
When low back pain turned to cancer, her husband left her
“As soon as the diagnosis came in, her husband left her. He said. ‘All my money will go in your treatment. I cannot support all this.’ He abandoned his own children and did not care that she was fighting a deadly disease. He even got remarried. My parents, our relatives and I pooled everything we had to fund surgery and chemo to make sure she beat the disease.”
She thought the fight was over and 3 years later she had a relapse
“We were terrified when they said it was a relapse. This time chemotherapy alone cannot save her. She needs a bone marrow transplant. Her daughter (12) and son (16) are always by her bedside when not at school. My wife and child, our parents, are always trying to give her hope that she will make it. The problem is, even if we pool all resources, we can only arrange Rs. 2 Lakhs for her treatment.”
