I Am Not Ready To Leave Everything Behind And Accept Defeat, Help Me Fight Cancer

Sheni and I have been married for over 3 years. Russell is now 2 years old. Fatherhood came easily to me as I had to care for my siblings at home. My father and I used to go to the fields right from when I was a little boy, and we would toil all day to provide for the family. Around the time Russell was born, my father passed. Although we don't usually believe in reincarnation, I see a little of my father in my son. I am not ready to leave all this behind yet.

After my father passed, I had more responsibilities. My brother and I turned into fitness trainers. I also manage the farm. This helps us support the family. At the end of last year, I began losing a lot of weight. I even lost my appetite. I knew something was terribly wrong. the doctor told me it was acidity, and I took medicines that were prescribed.
Soon it became clear that this was more than just a bad stomach. I was in pain all the time. I visited so many doctors. Finally, after a scan, I received the worst news ever. I have a tumor in my liver and that has damaged over 90% of my liver. Because it is a high-risk case where any wrong intervention can have the worst effect, several doctors refused to treat me and referred me to other hospitals.

Shankara gave me some hope. So far I have had a few cycles of chemotherapy. The side effects are killing me. I hoped all this pain would eventually help me beat cancer, but an MRI showed that the tumor was growing and spreading.

I had to stay in bed. The doctors said I can never workout again, which meant my days as a fitness trainer is over. As a father I only want one thing, to see my son grow up. As a parent to my siblings, I want to see them all have good lives. Now I am scared that I will lose this battle and never get my dream.

We have been shelling out every rupee on my treatment, and we are increasingly aware that running out of money means I have to say goodbye to my family. Russell should be going to school this year but he cannot because we cannot afford. No matter how terrible this disease makes me feel I want to spend all the time I can with Russell, and give him the best childhood memories.
Although I seem strong in front of my family, I am afraid of what is to come. The pain sometimes gets to me, and the fear of losing everything I love is even worse. I want to fight this disease. I want to be alive - for me, for my son and entire family. I want to go to work, and make sure my family has a good life. I am out of options so I need your help.

Ronald is just 35. A young father, he shoulders the responsibilities of his entire family. All he wants is to battle cancer and live the rest of his life. Your support can save him.
