Month and Year of Birth: October 2015
Arpit Raj was 1 year 6 months old when he was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma. He is from the coastal area of Kerala, where a high dosage of phosphorus usage in fields is causing health issues. His father had RB and both eyes were enucleated in his childhood itself. He already received 6 chemos in Aravind hospital, Coimbatore. Ms. Jernie (Dr. Fairooz's receptionist ) contacted them as the child was in media seeking financial support. They visited the Prabha clinic on 22nd November 2018 and continued treatment with financial support from Iksha. He so far received 12 cycles of chemotherapy and his left eye had to be enucleated. The custom-made prosthetic eye was done. He is on yearly follow-up now and is attending his school.
