“Despite irregular income, a small house, and fewer facilities available, we were living a decent
life. My son Balaji is a brilliant child, he is the source of our happiness. But my poor child is
suffering so much. Nearly a year ago, we noticed that Balaji often gets tired walking a short
distance. We saw that his body was inclined to one side, and he was facing difficulties walking,
sleeping, or standing. Worried we took him to a hospital where we found out that he was
diagnosed with a deformity that was present since birth. A surgery is needed to correct the
deformity, but we are not able to gather the huge sum of money that is required.”-
16-year-old Balaji is the son of Mr. Manjunath and Mrs. Umadevi who hails from Chikkaballapur,
Karnataka. Balaji was diagnosed with Congenital Kyphoscoliosis, a sideways curvature of the
spine that is caused by a defect that was present at birth. The parents discovered the diagnosis
a few years after his birth when Balaji started walking differently. His body is inclined to one
side, and it causes him immense pain in everyday activities. Balaji is taking treatment at Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital. Karnataka. The doctors have proposed Vertebral column
resection to correct the spinal deformity. The estimated cost of the treatment is Rs. 6,00,000/-
(Rupees Six Lakhs Only).
“I am a labourer and so is my wife. Collectively, we manage to earn Rs. 5,000/- (Rupees Five
Thousand) a month, this barely supports the expenses of our family which consists of six
members. I don't know how I am going to arrange the amount that is required for my son's
treatment. He is in immense pain, and I cannot see him in this situation anymore. We need your
help, please donate in whatever capacity you can.”
