30 Jan Mr. Bhupal B. Kami Blood cancer treatment
Mr. Bhupal B. Kami is a 14 Year old boy from Badagau, Salyan; a rural community of Nepal. Salyan is also known to be a place below the poverty line. His parents are farmers. Bhupal has blood cancer, he was transported to Kathmandu for his treatment. His treatment started in December 2018 and will continue for 3.2 years at Kanti Children Hospital.
The boy was helping his family in their farm and studying at grade 8 when he was told he had cancer. He was performing well in his studies; he was an active student, good in sports and outgoing with his friends. It is said that he went into depression after he heard the tragic news. His parents too were helpless.
Farming was not enough to pay for Bhupal’s treatment. We have taken responsibility for all his treatment, doctor appointments and counsel. With their earnings they are unable to bear the financial cost of bringing their child back to life. With costs being high and emotions running low they were in the verge of hopelessness.
Doctors have said he needs 5 cycles of chemo therapy.
