Story

Chinmayi is 10-years-old and suffers from a blood disorder that makes her unable to exert herself. She needs blood transfusions every 20 days and the frequency of transfusions will only increase. The transfusions are also damaging her organs because they leave excess iron in her body.

Chinmayi's father Channaswami runs a small medical shop in Malebennur, a village in Karnataka and earns Rs 40,000 per year. He spends more than twice his monthly income on Chinmayi's medical expenses. A bone-marrow transplant (BMT) is his only hope of finally curing Chinmayi.

Chinmayi is her parent's first child. When she was just 9-months-old, she fell so sick she stopped moving. “She was suddenly too tired to feed, or even turn over. We took her to the hospital and found that her blood level had dropped and she needed blood,” Channaswami explains.
