“My son hides in fear when he hears us say 'hospital.' We lie to him that we are going to a park and at the entrance of the hospital, he manages to slip from our hold and runs away. But his weakness won’t let him even walk five steps. My son weeps until he exhausts the little energy left in him and all I can do is carry him into the hospital with a heavy heart for a treatment that can help him survive.” - Enosh’s mother, Padma.
