After two months of treatment, her weakness and stomach pain persisted. A biopsy of the stomach brought the family some shocking news. Kavya has neuroblastoma, a very common cancer in children. That's when her parents decided to get her treated in Narayana Hrudayalaya, Bangalore. Now she needs 6-9 months of chemotherapy after which the doctor will decide if she needs a bone-marrow transplant.
Elangovan, Kavya's father can hardly believe how much his daughter has changed in the last one month since she started chemotherapy. Her hair has fallen off. Her tiny frame has lost 5 kgs and she has no appetite left. Knowing that her stomach has painful tumours, beyond a point, he doesn't insist she eat. He is just thankful she still enjoys drinking Pediasure (a protein drink).
Help this family in their time of need.
