Jessy is just 9 months old. It was only two months ago that Yovanraj and Sutha came to know that their baby is suffering from blood cancer. A supervisor in a small lodge, Yovanraj just earns just Rs.300 a day which gets cut if he does not show up at work. Now, the couple has no money left to pay for the treatment and Jessy's treatment is at stake.
