A Parent Is Doing Everything Possible To Save The Life Of Their Child. One Such Father Did This, Who Cycled 300 Km And Gave His Son Special Medicines.
The Father, Working As A Construction Worker, Traveled By Bicycle For Three Days From His Ancestral Village Ganigankoppal To Bengaluru Near Bannur In Tarasipur Taluk To Arrange Life-Saving Medicines For His Son.
The Child Is Suffering From Health Related Problems Since Childhood. He Is Being Treated By Doctors From the National Institute Of Mental Health And Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), Bengaluru, For The Last 10 Years. His Father Used To Go To The Hospital Every Two Months To Buy Medicine.
However, The Father Could Not Go To Bengaluru To Take Medication Due To COVID-19 Lockdown. He Decided To Go To The Hospital To Buy Medicine On A Bicycle.
He Left Ganigankoppal On 23 May And Returned Home On 26 May With Medicines.
He Told The Deccan Herald, “Doctors Said That If The Boy Stopped Taking Drugs Before He Turned 18, He Was More Likely To Have An Epileptic Attack. I Traveled On A Bicycle. Upon Knowing About The Incident, The Doctors At NIMHANS Gave Me Rs 1,000.”
