A few months back, 13-year-old Devadharshini, daughter of Chandru, was diagnosed with a form of blood cancer called Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
By the time cancer was diagnosed, her gums were swollen and she couldn't even talk.
The only treatment for her now is chemotherapy which is amounting to around 10 Lakh Rs.
13-year-old Devadharshini is a fun loving person. Her presence has always made people around her happy. But now, this bubbly girl hardly looks like herself anymore. Chandru is a driver and he earns Rs 8,000 on an average and Nandhini is a homemaker.
In just 2 weeks of the hospital admission, they spent nearly 5 lakhs. They need to spend 10 lakhs more for the induction chemotherapy in the coming days. This is far too high for Chandru to afford who needs our help to save his daughter.She is longing to go back to school and believes she will return home soon.
“She asks us what had happened to her, but we can’t even imagine saying ‘cancer’ to her. How can she bear it? I have told her she has an infection and she needs blood transfusions. She asks why she is admitted to a cancer hospital. Every time we tell her different stories and manage to convince her. Don’t know how long we can do this,” says Chandru
Your contribution can give Devadharshini the treatment she deserves.
