He Has Sold Everything He Had, Still He Can't Save His Daughter

For 3 years, this father has done everything he could to stop his family from breaking apart. With no other choice in hand, Sunkanna had to sell the last piece of land he owned to save his daughters. Now one of them is sick again and he is left with nothing. He is forced to sell even the utensils in the house to save Dhanusha.

Dhanusha was diagnosed with blood cancer at the age of 2 when she had a fever, which refused to go down. Sunkanna sold his house and with that money he managed to treat Dhanusha. But this was just the beginning of their hardships.

Soon their elder daughter was diagnosed with cancer too 

When the parents came back after finishing a year long treatment for Dhanusha, Geeta (their elder daughter) was diagnosed of a similar kind of blood cancer and it was fatal. This time, Sunkanna sold all the land he owned and started working as a daily wage labourer to run the house.

“They are so young to bear all of this. It’s like a cycle, one daughter gets better and the other gets sick. We were so happy when we came back home with Dhanusha but soon we noticed that there was a  lump in Geeta’s neck.  I was so scared that it would be cancer and my worst fears came true.”- Sunkanna
One would think that life couldn't be more unfair. But it was to this poor father. Dhanusha's cancer relapsed and now without a bone marrow transplant she will not be able to make it. The cost of the treatment will be 25 lakhs, which this farmer family cannot afford.

Dhanusha’s cancer is back and this time it will take her away if I cannot…

For three years I somehow managed to keep my daughters alive but now...I just don’t know anymore. I wish I was educated enough to get a job that could pay me more. I am ready to do anything, just...I just want them safe and healthy. Her cancer is back and this time it will take her away if I cannot…”- Sunkanna. 
Away from her mother and sister, little Dhanush cries inconsolably. She wants to know when she will be cured of cancer, completely. She keeps begging her father to take her home. But Sunkanna doesn't know when that will be...
Geeta and Laxmi,the mother, are back at home waiting to hear good news and for Dhanusha to come back home. But it won’t be possible without your help. Your generous contribution can save the little girl’s life.

Dear Supporters,

As mentioned in the previous update, Dhanusha's family had spent almost 3 to 4 lakhs for her treatment before enrolling to Milaap. We are transferring this amount to them as it would be a great relief for them, since Dhanusha's elder sister has also been diagnosed with cancer.

Please keep the family in your prayers. Thank you all.

Dear Supporters,

As mentioned in our update dated 24th March 2020,  Dhanusha passed away during the course of treatment. Here's a follow up on the funds raised:

All outstanding medical bills and expenses incurred by the family at St John's Hospital have been settled. In addition, we have also initiated a reimbursement of Rs. 3L  worth of bills to the family. This was already paid by them as part of the treatment expenses just before the fundraiser was initiated.

With the consent of family, the money available will be used towards the treatment of other patients with urgent needs.

To begin with, Pushpadhami, aged 2, is suffering from Lymphoblastic Lymphoma and requires chemotherapy at the earliest. They have not been able to raise much out of the required amount of Rs 7 Lakhs. A sum of Rs 6 Lakhs will be transferred towards the same from this campaign for the treatment to begin. Here is the campaign link:

Samarth, aged 4, is suffering from Lympho Histiocytosis and requires Bone Marrow Transplant at the earliest. They have not been able to raise anything out of the required amount of Rs 20 Lakhs. A sum of Rs 4 Lakhs will be transferred towards the same from this campaign for the treatment to begin. Here is the campaign link:
