Samyek's strength in his fight with cancer
Samyek is a young boy who suffers from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system. He is from a poor family and did not have proper food to eat.
When he was brought to St. Jude India’s Child Care Centre, he was rapidly losing weight because of malnutrition and the illness. He was shy and kept to himself.
Over time at the center, Samyek began to come out of his shell. He started opening up and making friends. The educational sessions got him more involved in his studies.
The center also helped his family cope through the difficult time. His parents got deeply involved with the activities at the center. They learnt more about their son’s disease which helped them move past wrong ideas that they had about it.
The food he got at the center helped Samyek stabilize his weight and continue his treatment. He is now undergoing his second chemotherapy and his treatment so far has been free of complications.
It is important to provide children battling with cancer a good environment and a healthy lifestyle. Mental well being and physical strength is crucial to a child who is undergoing treatment.
