“When my 3-year-old son, Bhavya was admitted to the hospital, initially he would cry and ask us why he has to be in the hospital. But now, he is too tired to even ask that. He's in so much pain that he just keeps crying continuously. Recently, I was fired from the the job because I had taken too many leaves to take my son to the hospital regularly. Now I am able to be by his side every day and night, but I am running out of money to keep his treatment going,” - Himansh, 3-year-old Bhavya’s father.
A small fever was the sign of deadly blood cancerLittle Bhavya started suffering from very high fever in August. He was prescribed antibiotics as usual, after a visit to the doctor. But when the antibiotics couldn’t make his son any better, Himansh knew something was terribly wrong and admitted him to the hospital immediately. Bhavya’s condition began deteriorating and blood count dropped rapidly. After a series of tests, the doctors confirmed that he is suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a form of blood cancer. He needs chemotherapy to stay alive now. In just a few months, their lives have changed in the worst possible way.
Having lost their jobs, parents are struggling to save their little sonHimansh and Vandana live in Ajmer with their two children Bhavya and Nishasree . Himansh worked as a dentist in a small hospital. For the past 2 months, he had to take a lot of leaves as there was no one else to take Bhavya to the hospital on a regular basis due to which he lost his job. Vandana worked in the accounts department in the same hospital. When Bhavya was diagnosed with cancer, she had to resign from her job too. Now the parents are running out of money for their son’s treatment.
“Every time we get ready to go to the hospital, he starts screaming. We have told him that he has blood infections and only if he goes to the hospital, he can get rid of this. He has become so irritable now. He has mouth ulcers and keeps vomiting. It’s so painful to see my little baby not being able to eat anything.”
Bhavya with his parents and elder sister, Nishasree
Little Bhavya cannot even get up from bed now, needs urgent helpBhavya loved playing and listening to stories. He also loved reading books. But now, he no longer has the energy to do anything. When his 5-year-old sister, Nishasree goes to play with him, little Bhavya fails to even get up from bed. Now all he wants is to lie on his mother’s lap and listen to stories. Despite struggling too much, the parents are slowly losing hope. The parents are scared that their baby will lose his battle against death.
“In just 2 months, we have already spent Rs 6 lakhs. Whatever Vandana and I had earned over all these years, is gone now. We don’t even have relatives to seek help from. Neither of us has any income now. I don’t know how I will arrange Rs 9 lakhs for my son’s treatment. Doctors have told us that he has good chances of complete recovery, but if I fail to arrange the money, I will lose him.”
