“After my husband passed away, our world came crashing down. With a disabled daughter and a younger son, I thought it would be impossible for me to sustain them.”-
I never lost hope and started working to earn a living. My children are all I have, and I was determined to ensure they have a roof over their heads and food to eat.
My husband passed away due to kidney failure. He was an alcoholic. Due to his bad habits, his body gave up.
It has been a year since his demise, and we still face difficulty affording two square meals daily. I work on the farm as a wage labourer. I earn merely Rs. 150 daily.
I was trying my best to look after my children until that fateful day…
Manthan and I went to the hospital to get his plaster removed. He had hurt his ankle while playing football in school.
On our way back home, I noticed a mild swelling on his ankle. Thinking that it would subside, I did not pay much heed to it.
Months passed by, and his swelling worsened. Manthan complained that his ankle was hurting.
Unable to heal it with home remedies, I took him to the nearest hospital.
Upon arrival, the doctors took him in. They began to run a series of tests and scans. They performed MRI, CT scan, blood test, and more.
It felt like an eternity waiting for the results. I was hoping that it wasn’t anything severe. Little did I know, it was the beginning of our problems.
The doctors diagnosed Manthan, my 9-year-old son, with Ewing Sarcoma.
Ewing Sarcoma is a type of tumour that forms from a certain kind of cell in bone or soft tissue.
I took my son for further treatment. The doctors started his cancer therapy immediately.
They advised 15 cycles of cancer therapy costing Rs. 13 lakhs ($ 15892.28).
I was trying to stay strong all this time, hoping that things will improve. But everything is crashing down one by one.
I can barely make ends meet. By no means can I gather such a huge amount of money.
My daughter is disabled. She cannot speak, hear, and eat on her own. I left her at our neighbour’s place and travelled all the way for Manthan’s treatment.
Financially exhausted, I have no means of helping my child anymore.
Manthan is just 9 years old, yet he’s been fighting his cancer with a brave face. Please, don’t let this disease snatch away my innocent son.
