“Her nine-month treatment incurred a cost of about one crore. Our family along with relatives, neighbours and friends managed it. As advised by doctors, she was taken for a follow-up check-up again where she underwent a few tests and doctors said that she needs treatment for another six months. Her treatment will cost around 80 lakhs,” he said.

He added the family has already spent their entire savings on her treatment and were not in a position to continue her treatment so crowdfunding was the only option available to them.
