Krishna, son of Ramasamy was 13 years old, when he had a fracture on his femur bone in 2014 . Inspite of the regular orthopedic treatments the fracture refused to heal. Finally after one year he was diagnosed with sarcoma of the bone and was advised to undergo surgery to replace the bone with a rod and undergo chemotherapy and radiation . Krishna underwent 14 doses of chemotherapy and one month of radiation at Vellore CMC hospital close to Chennai.
Ramasamy he was in tears when he heard about his son's ailment. All of us at Punarnava consoled him and convinced him that the Community will be with him in this journey. All our well wishers pitched in to support him financially . Finally after close to a year Krishna returned to coimbatore in crutches limping but full of confidence to move ahead in life . He is a fighter and has bounced back to health and presently is following preventive Ayurveda treatment.
Krishna's story is one of our success stories of community living . Krishna came from sickness to health holding numerous hands that were extended towards him.
