She was leading a very happy life with her family members and the people around. But things changed in February 2017 when she complained of a light pain on her right leg. First, she was not taken seriously but one day in the middle of the night she suddenly woke up from sleep and started crying in pain.
Her parents got scared and rushed her to the nearest government hospital.The doctors gave her some medication and sent her back home. Her parents felt that she will be fine with time but her condition kept on deteriorating. Prateeksha’s father had to take her to a hospital in Bangalore. An MRI scan showed she had Cancer.
Her father is a school teacher in a small town of Chickbellapur. He has no friends or relatives in Bangalore. He had no option of staying in Bangalore and undergoing his daughter’s treatment. Once in every three days Prateeksha’s father has to take leave from his school and travel with her for more than two hours to reach the hospital.
Prateeksha needs to go through another 8 sessions of chemotherapy followed by a limb surgery to get cured of cancer. Her treatment has to start immediately to save her life and her dreams. Everyone in her community has come forward to help her in whatever way possible but it is not enough for a surgery that will cost around 13 Lakhs.
