Manoj, just sixteen years of age, is our youngest patient. He lost his mother when his younger sibling was born. Poverty and ignorance caused his mother’s death. His father, a D group employee at Infosys lives with his two children in Raja Rajeshwari Nagar. Manoj had a spinal surgery 5 years ago and went into renal failure due to complications. He was referred to us by a doctor at the Victoria Hospital and has been undergoing dialysis for the past one year at the Raja Rajeshwari Hospital. The saddest part is that there is no cure for renal failure other than dialysis or kidney transplant. Manoj obviously cannot afford the transplant. He is strapped for dialysis throughout his life.
