Little Mitakshi came in like a blessing  to Paresh and Dayaben's life. 

The young couple's world was complete with their little daughter. Despite Paresh's small income, the family was very happy. They started making plans and working very hard to give the little one all they could.

In her ninth month, Mitakshi started falling ill very frequently.

Mitakshi had started getting frequent spells of fever. Her health was deteriorating fast. Paresh desperately started running around, taking her to the best doctors he knew in and around Junagarh. The medications did little to help, and the fevers got worse. Her legs stopped working. By the age of one and  a half, she could barely use her legs anymore. Paresh's income did not allow him to opt for better medical facilities.

Paresh borrowed a sum of Rs. 33,000 to be able to give Mitakshi better medical care

Helpless but not hopeless yet, he took his daughter to HCG Ahmedabad. Here, little Mitakshi was diagnosed with blood cancer. Her treatment began, and she slowly started recovering. Paresh was left with just 20,000 of the amount he had borrowed.
Due to his humble background and limited income, the hospital ensured Mitakshi's treatment for cancer was provided free of cost. They offered him help worth over 3 Lakh.
Little  Mitakshi was 2 by now, and was responding well to the treatment. Her little legs had also started working again.

However, he is finding it hard to continue the treatment now.

"I borrowed Rs. 10,000 on interest from a diamond merchant in our area. My wife has started taking up tailoring work to help compliment my meagre income. It's been 6 days now. I have not been able to open my puncture-repair shop. All these days in the hospital and constant treatment and medication have left her very scared and changed. She does not let me leave her side. What do I tell her? I just sit with her all day, because she just won't let me step out of the house. I open the shop for two hours a day or so when she sleeps. There is almost no money coming in, but how will she understand all this? She is just a baby."
Under these circumstances, Paresh and Dayaben desperately need help to keep Mitakshi's treatment going. Mitakshi will not be able to survive if the treatment is discontinued at this point.

Your support can help Paresh save his daughter.
