My 6-year-old son Anand has been in the hospital kilometres away from home, since the last 210 days. Anand was diagnosed with a condition called ‘Recurrent Anaplastic Brainstem Ependymoma’ in 2014. Since his diagnosis, his brain has shown presence of tumours three times, shattering our world every single time. 


Seeing my son battle hardships is one of the most difficult things I’ve done in my life. Today, my son is breathing with the help of a ventilator, eating with the help of tubes inserted in his mouth, getting medicines directly into his lungs and brain through pipes. He cannot be taken off these machines, they’re keeping him alive. This disease has confined him to his bed, eliminating his trips to the toilet, even his excretory system is connected to tubes. My son needs radiotherapy that needs a total of Rs. 7,00,000. He is going to need treatment for another 9 months, if God is not on our side, it could even take longer than that. I’m in desperate need of money - please help me save my son’s life.


I’m Vikram Singh, Anand’s father. I live in Shamli, Uttar Pradesh far away from where I work. I’ve spent Rs. 11 lakh so far and have nothing left since the savings I had have all been used to pay for his treatment so far. I used to work as a consultant and make Rs. 15,000. Since the last 12 months, I’ve been unemployed because I don’t have the choice to leave my son and wife alone in a hospital that’s not even in the same city as me.

It all started with a stubborn fever in February 2014. Even after cooking things he likes, Anand drastically reduced his food intake. We were horrified when his head started tilting to the sides. It seemed like his neck couldn’t carry the weight of his head. We rushed him to the hospital. After running tests for almost a month, a tumour was detected in my son’s brain. This life threatening condition was prepared to take my son’s life if not operated. In a very short period of time, I gathered Rs. 6 lakh to get him operated in Mumbai. The operation destroyed his tumour and my son lived a happy healthy life for around 3 years after that. 

In December 2016, however, the fear of losing our son hit us again. My son showed the exact same symptoms. I kept telling myself that maybe it hasn’t not come back, maybe I’m just being paranoid. But my biggest nightmare had come true, my son’s tumours were back and so was his cancer. We admitted him to a hospital in Mumbai by January 2017. For a few months, it looked like he was better until a strong dose of chemotherapy led to lung failure. 

Vikram is struggling to pay for his son’s radiotherapy. Your donations can help him save his son’s life.

This was the worst phase of our lives. My son was unconscious for a month from June to July. For one month, we did not hear his voice or see him smile or even move. He was just like a breathing corpse. My daughter and wife spent every single day by his bedside, talking to him, telling him stories, trying hard to bring him back to consciousness. 

Since May 3, 2017, Anand has shown a mix of courage and bitterness. There are days he wakes up saying, “Call the doctors, I’m not scared of syringes.” And there are days when he just wants to go home and the remote-controlled car he plays with doesn’t keep him busy. I’m longing to see my son out of the hospital, I’ve forgotten what he looks like without these machines attached to his body.

The doctors have explained that no surgery can cure his condition, he needs continuous radiotherapy for nine months. The hospital charges along with the cost of all machines Anand requires right now is coming up to Rs. 2 lakh every week. Whatever I’ve paid so far has come from my friends and family members. But what now? I still have a long unforgiving journey ahead of me and no source of income. My son has gone through enough - please help me out.
