The life of a rare individual's parent is unlike anybody else’s. Mostly, parents are their children’s primary caregivers till late in the child’s life, and it is likely that they do not have qualified support. Parents thus have to juggle multiple priorities leading to hard decisions. For instance, whether to take up a job or not given the child’s needs? Should the family shift homes to seek treatment to ease the rare child’s life? These become significant questions.
While each family is unique, this episode features Dr. Suhas Indurkar, the mother of 43-year-old Kedar Indurkar who has cerebral palsy because of which he has little physical strength in his body.
