|“Helping others, without expecting anything in return is what true self-worth is about” ~ Gaving Bird|
|This is the story of another young kid who is a victim of cancer. Nithin is a 13 year old, from Lakkampally, Nadhipet Mandal. He is the only son of Gangasailu and Godavari who comes from a very poor background. One day he suddenly had a sever fever and was admitted to a nearby hospital immediately. After many tests he was diagnosed with blood cancer and the cost of treatment was estimated to 20 Lakhs. |
As the family is not in a state to pay for such high expenses and they had to reach out to many non-profit organizations outside to help them. Ashvattha also came to know about this from one the volunteers and our team members visited the family at Rainbow Children’s Hospital in Hyderabad. We talked to Godavari, Nithin’s mother, who is taking care of her son staying in hospital for about 6 months now. She is very grateful for all the people coming forward to help her son. The doctors are performing chemotherapy but it is a long process which takes a lot of patience, energy and cost. Specially, it was very difficult as Nithin was having some digestion problems and he couldn’t eat enough to withstand the process of chemotherapy. It was very disheartening to see Nithin lay on bed helpless, at this very young age. We feel really sorry for Nithin and his family who has to go through these tiring process. From Ashvattha, we donated a check of Rs.25,000. We sincerely pray and hope that Nithin recovers soon to continue his schooling and education.
A big Thank you for all the Donors and Volunteers for coming forward to help Nithin!
