Aniketh's cancer was not diagnosed for over a year
Looking back, Aniketh's parents are appalled that they didn't see the signs - Aniketh's regular diarrhea and constipation. Only when he became weak and his stomach started swelling did they realize that it wasn't just a digestion or toilet training problem. They decided to come to Bangalore for a diagnosis.
The treatment has made Aniketh cranky and weak
“We found out that he has cancer. It has spread to the pancreas and was obstructing his intestine. Which is why he's been having trouble with motions. All this time, he was trying to tell us that he was hurting, but we didn't realise until this late.” says Krishna.

“The visits to the hospital have made Aniketh cranky and even the sight of a doctor is enough for him to start begging to go home. Over and over we tell him an injection or the pain of a needle is just for a few minutes. Now, he has a chemo-port in his chest and we have to make sure he doesn't hurt himself by pulling it out,” Krishna says.
