In the times when kids complain about almost everything around them, 3-year-old aarush tries to explain his problems as much as possible to his parents. Probably, he understands that his parents have been trying to save him without much support.
Aarush is the youngest child of Single Mother Neelima. He is pampered not just by his mother, but his elder sisters, 11-year-old savita and 7-year-old prabha. Since Aarush's birth, the entire family has kept him in a shell.
Neelima works as house maid in Thane, Mumbai, where they live. With her meagre income, Neelima somehow managed the expenses of his family. For Neelima, happiness used to be more important than her monetary success.
The world collapse around Neelima when Aarush was diagnosed with Nephroblastoma. She is doing everything in her power to keep her only son safe and get him treated for the illness. Aarush used to be a very active and healthy child. But now he is pale and barely has the strength to get up. The entire family is not being able to save the child. His body has almost given up and his cancer might silence him forever. Chemotherapy is the only way to save him.
“We have such a big family. But even our combined efforts are failing. I am willing to take away all the pain of my child. But instead, cancer is taking my baby away. Losing a child is the toughest thing to deal with. I pray even my enemies are not hit with such a disease.”
Little Aarush’s condition has gone from bad to worse. His screams make the others in the hospital cry. He keeps asking her mother to take him away from the hospital. He cries and tells his sisters that he can’t take any more needles.
How can you help?
Cancer can kill Aarush anytime if he doesn’t get the regular chemotherapy. He has already got 3 cycles of chemotherapy. His mother is out of money to carry out his treatment. She is still trying to do everything she can to save her youngest child. But the cost required to save the little one is Rs 6 lakhs and she have no means to arrange such huge sum of money.
