Soliman Faruk, a 25-year-old MA student, was taken to the local doctor for what seemed like mere symptoms of a fever. After a blood test revealed low haemoglobin and low platelet count, Soliman’s family sought a second opinion. Amid a second opinion, Soliman was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, Soliman was advised to leave his home in Bangladesh and travel to the CMC Hospital in Chennai, India. Upon arrival, the costs of treatment in Chennai were estimated to be Rs. 50,00,000. Unable to afford such an expensive treatment, Soliman travelled to the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, seeking a more affordable treatment.
Once Soliman reached the Tata Memorial Hospital, his treatment costs were estimated at a reduced cost. This estimate, however, was also unaffordable for Soliman. After selling his family’s land, utilizing the entirety of his personal savings, selling his family cow and taking loans with interest, Soliman was only able to cover the intensive phase of his treatment before exhausting his funds. Soliman is in need of Rs. 6,00,000 to complete his treatment. Upon completion, Soliman wishes to return home and be reunited with his widowed mother and younger siblings.
