Help 9-Month-Old Baby Fight Blood Cancer

The following appeal is written on behalf of Yovanraj, father of Jessy.

My name is Yovanraj and my wife's name is Sutha Selvi. My 9-month-old daughter is suffering from blood cancer. I work as a lodge supervisor in a lodge in Thiruchendur, Tuticorin. I earn Rs.300 everyday but lose my daily wages if do not go for work. I miss work since I have to accompany my wife to take Jessy to the hospital.

She was having fever continously and we took to her a clinic. But it didn't help. Doctors there said her WBC count looks abnormal. Further tests showed that she has cancer. With the help of out relatives, I spent over a lakh for her treatment but now I am helpless and has nothing left to manage her treatment. 

How You Can Help

Now I have exhausted my funds and need help. She is undergoing treatment inMeenakshi Mission Hospital, Madurai. She will get admitted when her blood counts drop. We bring her back home if she is doing well.  We need over 6 lakhs for her chemotherapy and then she needs to come for regular checkups.

I have hope to receive support from you as this is my last option.

Dear Supporters,

This is Haritha, a Milaap Fellow. I got a chance to speak to Jessy’s father.

Jessy’s health has improved. Apart from monthly blood tests to see if she is recovering well, everything has been going well.  While on the phone with Jessy’s father, I could hear Jessy screaming and talking in the background. 

“To see her this active is a dream come true. My daughter was really sick but now she is back to normal life and is recovering well. Everyday we realize how your support has helped us save our daughter and everyday we thank and pray for you”, says her father

Here’s a recent photo of Jessy,
Your support has made this happen! Thank you all.

Dear all,

Here is an update on Jessy.

Thanks to your support, Jessy has been discharged after completing her chemotherapy. Jessy's father has expressed his gratitude to each of you. Jessy needs to visit the hospital once in a month to get a blood test done and get the medications for the next month. Till she turns 2 years old, she has to go for regular check-ups.

Thank you for the amazing support and prayers. We are in touch with Jessy's parents and will keep you posted on her progress.
