"My little son got rashes all over his body, which makes his skin so itchy that he scratches himself until the blood oozes out. The pain caused by the rashes is unbearable. Whatever little food he has, he immediately throws up. To make this worse, he got a mouth ulcer and he completely stopped having food and now he is surviving only on liquids which are being fed through the tubes. He has become so weak that he stopped talking to us. It is painful to see my son struggling for life like this." said Neelam, Yatharth's mother.

Just when they were hoping that their son would fully recover and lead a normal life, cancer relapsed and their trust in the future was completely shattered.
"A few months ago, my son was happy when we told him that he can play with his friends again. He was just beginning to regain his health but suddenly he started having rashes on his body. My husband and I were scared and rushed him to the hospital. We were told that he is fighting death again. We were shocked and terrified, never in our wildest dreams we thought this would happen to him again. They said, this time it’s worse than before. We immediately admitted him in the hospital without giving a second thought.” - Neelam.
