Mangalore, Oct 9, 2014: Twelve year old Nitin S.D., a class VI student hailing from Bellare in Sullia taluk, is a very bright student who was bustling with enthusiasm like others of his peer group, until recently when he was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukaemia.
The boy who is the son of late Deviprasad and Bhagyashree, a daily wage worker, is presently under treatment at K.R. Hospital, Mysore.
Doctors treating on him have said he required chemotheraphy and that the treatment period would extend for about two years. The poor family of Nitin is now at a loss not knowing how to arrange for the approximate sum of Rs 10 lakh needed for treatment including surgery, hospitalization and cost of medicines.
Nitin’s father had died last year in a road accident and his mother has no other source of income as of now. Though Bhagyashree raised loans for treatment of her son and even his school teachers and students contributed their little bit, that was far from enough to meet the medical expenses of Nitin.
The family is now expecting financial aid from kind-hearted donors. Those wishing to contribute to the cause can remit their donations to Bhagyashree P.M., Account Number : 02542210006113, IFSC Code – SYNB 0000254, Syndicate Bank Bellare, Sullia Taluk (DK). The contact number of Nitin’s mother Bhagyashree is 8105702933.
