Ravi Krishna's son should be in school. He should be fighting with his brother, throwing tantrums, playing football, and annoying his parents all day long. Unfortunately, all this little boy does, is cry out in pain until it echoes through the house. He hardly eats, and he is certainly frightened of the disease that seems to be killing him slowly from within.Except for my wife and I, nobody knows that my 7-year-old son is fighting cancer. Not even his 11-year-old brother.
This story has been written from the perspective of Ravi Krishna.
We never imagined that a stomach ache could have actually been a sign of cancerSrithan was finishing his exams when he complained of stomach ache. We first thought it was simply a cry to get out of exams. When it continued through the holidays, we believed it was the junk food. Even the local doctor prescribed medicines for his bowels. He said it could be a stomach infection. Months went by, and my son’s pain only got worse. He begged us to take him elsewhere.
Cancer! My 7-year-old son is suffering from a killer disease and we are feeling helpless.
Our world crashed in the minute we learned that Srithan's life was in grave danger
Ever since Srithan fell sick, every happy feeling has been sucked out of our lives. He cries out of pain. He does not eat at all. Vomiting has become synonymous with breathing. We have to force him to eat food. All he can tolerate is a liquid diet.
All that pain and he does not even know what is happeningSrithan cannot understand what is happening to him. As his father, I do not have the courage to explain. He is extremely scared of going to the hospital. He comes because he is close to his mother and will go wherever she goes.
His stomach pain is persistent, and he keeps vomiting. Going to school or even playing outside the house is bad for him. Yes, it is frustrating.
Would you please help us save our boy?
Nobody helps us, financially or emotionally. So there is no point in telling people.
