Hasini is a 4-year-old with an aggressive blood cancer. If she gets treatment, she has a good chance of getting better. But her family's resources are dwindling and they are finding it very hard to continue Hasini's treatment and need help saving her.
Since June, Hasini has been undergoing Chemotherapy which will continue for a total span of six months. She has already finished two months of chemotherapy and has another 4 months to go in order for her to fight the cancer.

While Hasini's parents are worried about their daughter's health, they have an added concern to think of as well. They are not from Hyderabad, which is where Hasini is undergoing treatment. Hence, they have added expenses of accommodation in Hyderabad. Hasini's parents are struggling to pay for her treatment. Now, after paying for 2 months they have exhausted their funds but are not yet ready to give up on their daughter.
“We got her new books and notebooks for school, she was so excited. Now, she has become very quiet. The minute we enter the hospital gate – she stops talking. She cries when they take blood from her or give her injection, but otherwise, she says nothing. It really hurts to see her so scared,” says Suresh.
Suresh has sold what little gold the family has and is now considering selling his small home too to save Hasini. But even if he does that – what he gets will still not be enough to complete Hasini's treatment. Through his sorrow, he feels unable to save his sweet, happy child.
