Kamal’s family took him to Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurugram, where he was operated on December 29, 2020.
The results of the biopsy of his tumor said that it was cancerous and that too of the last stage. But neither he nor his surgeon and family lost their hopes.

The subsequent treatment cost may extend to lakhs of rupees.
With his current situation, he and his family are facing difficulty paying for the sessions and further treatment. so Kamal has sought financial help from the public.
