Help Us to fight with Cancer!!

With summer vacation being over, the month of September 2019 started like others in previous years, preparing our 2 boys Kartik (14) & Rishab (12) for a new school year as they were looking forward to reuniting and catching up with some of their friends. Little did we know that 2 weeks into the month our lives would be forever changed. On Sept 17, after a routine bloodwork came back with devastating results, our son Rishab was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). We were in shock but had no time to absorb or react to what was happening, he needed to be admitted to the hospital for additional tests and start chemo therapy immediately. After a couple of weeks in the hospital he was ready for the outpatient treatment but that only lasted a few days because it turned out that he also needed the intrathecal chemo which is given during a bone marrow and spinal tap, this treatment requires him to be hospitalized for a few days at a time. It breaks our hearts to see our son in so much pain, we would give anything to take the pain away and see him healthy again. Rishab is a brave and strong 12 yr old boy, (he is very quite/reserved boy. He likes to play PS4 with his friends and good in studies. Me and wife are full time employees and have been using the last few days left of this yr.’s vacation/ sick/ personal days and taking turns, weather staying with our son in the hospital or taking him to treatments etc.. The past few months have been very difficult for our family, mentally, emotionally and financially now that the medical bills are coming in. We have medical insurance but with such enormous medical expense the out of pocket charges are draining the little savings we have. Nothing could have prepared us for anything like this. We could use as much help as possible to cover the out of pocket medical costs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support, donations and prayers. We will keep everyone updated on Rishab’s progress as we’re looking forward to the answer to our prayers, to have our son back in full health and being the happy child he deserves to be.
