This Driver Is Forced To Quit His Job To Save His 6-Year-Old Daughter From Blood Cancer

“I can't even think of going to work when my daughter is in the hospital fighting blood cancer’ says Chinnaya as he tries to comfort his little daughter who cries in pain due to the countless injections she gets in a day. And when he’s not in the hospital, he runs around the city pleading everyone he knows to help him save his daughter. Chinnaya wants to save his daughter but with no funds left he fears he might not be able to save her.

Parents never thought Nitiksha’s pain in her arm would turn out to be a deadly cancer

When Nitiksha started complaining about pain in her right arm, her parents did not take it seriously and thought it might be because of writing and drawing for hours. Though she was given medicines after doctor’s consultation, the pain didn’t subside and a few days later she got a swelling in her shoulder. After a series of tests, she was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, an aggressive form of blood cancer that affects the immune cells.

She needs chemotherapy, without that she’ll not survive

“I have told her that she has blood infections. She's too little to even understand what cancer means. Every time I take her for the chemo session, she would just hide behind my back and clutch my hand tightly saying she doesn't want this treatment. But she needs this. It’s the only way I can save her life.” - Chinnaya, father


Chinnaya works as a driver and earns a decent income, well enough to look after his family of four including his wife Sujatha and son Nikhil (3). Chinnaya could start Nitiksha’s treatment by taking help from his boss. Nitiksha has undergone 2 chemo sessions and she needs to continue her treatment for one more month.



“My wife takes care of my son at home and I stay with my daughter in the hospital. I don’t even have any savings or property to sell. I don’t know how to arrange Rs 10 lakhs for her treatment. My boss has been generously helping me with about Rs 3 lakhs for Nitiksha’s treatment. But how much more of help can I ask him?” - Chinnaya.

Nitiksha needs to continue her chemotherapy but Chinnaya have no funds left

The estimated cost for Nitiksha’s treatment is Rs 10 lakhs and Chinnaya is struggling to meet the impending expenses. He is the only earning member in the family and now he has stopped going to work just to take care of his daughter. Nitiksha longs to go back home and play with her little brother. With your help, Nitiksha can fight cancer.

Chinnaya can only save his daughter with your help
