    This fundraiser will benefit

    Usha Srinivas

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

10 months old, my daughter should be walking, talking and discovering life. Instead, she is fighting the worst disease that can ever inflict a person, much less, a child. Usha has cancer, and we are struggling to save her.

A swelling in the neck led to the diagnosis

We got concerned about a swelling on Usha's neck when she was just 6 months old. It began like a small bump from a mosquito bite. I thought it would go away in a few days, but it didn't. I took her to a doctor at Indira Gandhi Hospital. He gave drops to dissolve it. 2 months we used those drops, it just got bigger. 

I was scared for her now. I took her to a private hospital where the doctor suggested a biopsy. Ready to do anything, I agreed. This is where we received the diagnosis that Usha has neuroblastoma. 
Usha needs chemotherapy to stop this cancer from spreading
Rajeshwari almost fainted when the doctor told us in simple terms - a type of cancer. We rushed Usha to Apollo where a doctor reconfirmed her diagnosis after more tests, and suggested a treatment plan. He said this was low-risk. If we start now, we had a good chance of saving Usha, especially because the worst symptoms haven't shown up yet.

This tumor was affecting her nerves, silently waiting to kill her. My baby girl looks normal and happy on the outside, but she is slowly succumbing to this disease on the inside, and she can't even tell us.

With Rs. 500/day income, and an unsteady job, this father is unable to save Usha 

Usha is all we have. We don't have anything else other than each other in this family of three. I work as an electrician's assistant for a daily wage of Rs. 500. I have spent over Rs. 70,000 so far on tests and even that I had to borrow from everyone I know. For chemotherapy, we need to arrange Rs. 4 Lakhs, but I don't have that kind of money. 

Now I have a chance to save Usha. Without 4 sessions of chemotherapy, tests, medicines and everything needed during the following months, I might just lose my daughter. 

Your help will be a blessing

Srinivas and Rajeswari have reached out to everyone they know but they are unable to raise enough for the treatment. The money raised through this fundraiser will help baby Usha continue treatment and beat cancer. 

Save 10-month-old Usha from this tumor and help her have a healthy life.
