This Mother Struggles Alone To Save Her 10-Year-Old From Cancer

Manju always tried to be the best mother she could be for her two beautiful young daughters. Manju's husband, Kailash, was rarely ever home because he was an Indo-Tibetan Border Police jawan. In his absence, she had to be twice as strong, raising their children on her own. But her strength was put to the most extreme test when her younger daughter, little Disha, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia a little over three years ago, at the tender age of 7.



Manju did not stay scared for long.




"I researched treatment options, I researched doctors. I found out that the closest and best place to give Disha a fighting chance at life was in Delhi. So I brought her here as quickly as I could . Ever since, I've been bringing Disha to Delhi every few weeks for her sessions, she was getting better,"- Manju, wiping tears
 


But Disha’s cancer has relapsed, only five days after the official end of the treatment plan she was on.

"I don't understand what happened! It was supposed to be over! I was supposed to be able to take my child home once and for all!  My husband calls whenever he can to ask about how the treatment is going, how Disha is. It was one of the best feelings in the world to be able to say 'Our daughter is going to make it. She's beating cancer.' But now I can't even say that,"- Manju, crying.



The only way to save Disha's life now is for her to get a bone marrow transplant, an extremely expensive procedure. To afford Disha's treatment, Manju and Kailash had pushed as far as they could. They sold everything they could sell, they borrowed as much as they could from friends and family. They have nothing left to give now.



"I'm so tired. I just want to go home, I want to go back to school. For the past few months mom has been telling me I'd get to leave and everything would be fine, but now everyone is saying I'm still sick. Why is this happening to me?" - Disha, when asked how she feels

For five days this little girl got to finally live her dream before it was snatched away from her by a cruel twist of fate. You are her only hope now. Her family can't afford the treatment that will save her life. Donate whatever you can.

Dear Supporters,

We have some news to share with you today.

Despite the best efforts by doctors, Disha's health is not showing any sign of improvement. She has undergone intensive chemotherapy and her body is not responding further to the treatment. She was in ICU for ten days but her health has continued to deteriorate.

Her family has taken the tough decision to take her home so that she can be surrounded by her loved ones. Please pray for her health and miraculous recovery. Funds raised towards this campaign will be utilised to settle down hospital expenses incurred on her treatment. Thank you for your love and support.

Dear Supporters,

Disha is an exceptionally brave girl who is fighting her disease with great courage. She is now recovering from a very intensive block of chemotherapy. She has been in intensive care for 3 days but with everyone’s wishes and blessings is now recovering well. She will be reassessed in terms of her disease control after 2-3 weeks before planning further management.

A very big thank you to everyone for their wishes and support.

Regards,
Amita Mahajan
