Jajarkot man struggles financially for his son’s treatment

Niraj Sharma, 15, of Kushe Rural Municipality-3 in Jajarkot is currently undergoing treatment at Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital as he suffers from blood cancer. However, due to financial problems, Ram Chandra Sharma struggles to continue his son’s treatment.

Earlier, Niraj had undergone a health check-up at Mission Hospital in Chaurjahaari, West Rukum, from where he was referred to Bir Hospital in Kathmandu. After Bir Hospital suspected that Niraj could be suffering from blood cancer, he was then transferred to Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital.

Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital then sent Niraj’s blood sample to Delhi for further testing, the reports of which proved that he had blood cancer.

Ram Chandra, who has been taking loans for his son’s treatment, shared that Rs 170,000 has already been spent for the treatment and yet the doctors tell that Niraj has to undergo chemotherapy for at least another six months and should be medicated for three years. He is worried about how to carry out his child’s treatment when his finances are in a delicate state.

He is the only breadwinner in the family with three other children.
