Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently helped a 12-year-old boy who was suffering from a rare and a deadly disease to receive proper treatment. 12-year-old Parth was suffering from a brain disorder. His family reportedly wrote to PM Modi asking for his help. In what came as a surprise to the family, the Prime Minister responded personally.
In an interview to public service broadcaster, DD news, the boy’s revealed that he had given up on all the hopes of his son getting better until he wrote to the Prime Minister. Adding that due to a financial crunch he was unable to provide adequate treatment to his son, the boy’s father told DD news that he had even sold off all his property and wife’s jewellery in order to arrange for the money.
Parth suffers from Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis (SSPE). His father wrote to the Prime Minister four months after he was diagnosed with the disease.
