Bhandhan

Month and Year of Birth: March 2019

Bandhan is one of the twins. Parents noticed a white reflex in his right eye. They immediately consulted a government doctor as they already lost their elder daughter to Retinoblastoma. They then took him to a hospital in Kolkata and was diagnosed with retinoblastoma. They were referred to a hospital in Bangalore.  At hospital both the twins were examined under general anesthesia. Bandhan Mal was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma. Parents decided to stay in Bangalore till the child completes 6 cycles of chemotherapy as traveling from West Bengal for every 3 weeks is hard. Bandhan received 6 cycles of chemo. No other treatment was planned as the tumor is already spread to the brain.
