Help 8-Year-old Tasmiya Fight Cancer

21st July 2016
Dear Supporters,

I am Sudhakar, a Milaap Open Fellow in  Bengaluru. I met with Tasmiya and her father, Rahamath Ulla on 19th July at BGS Global Hospital, Bengaluru while her fourth chemotherapy session was in progress. Little Tasmiya and her brother, Mohammad Huzer  were busy playing a game “Ulta Pulta” on the phone borrowed from her father, when I visited them. 

Tasmiya’s first chemotherapy session was on 30th May. She has been undergoing chemotherapy session every 15 days since then. The current chemotherapy session was delayed by a week because the platelets count were not as high as desired. 

Tasmiya’s father  has rented a house at a driving distance of 15 minutes from the hospital. Hearing about Tasmiya and her fight with cancer, the landlord waived off the usual security deposit required for renting a house.
“We first came to know about Tasmiya’s condition on 23rd Jan 2016. I was worried about how I would manage the entire finances required for the treatment . But, because of good samaritans like the contributors at Milaap and my current landlord, I have been able to provide my daughter with the needed treatment,” said Rahamath Ulla, expressing his  gratitude for everyone.

Blood tests will be conducted a week after the current session of chemotherapy to ascertain the further course of treatment.
Tasmiya has been responding well to chemotherapy. She had no other option but to discontinue her schooling. She is  in the 3rd standard. She will resume the same grade once she joins back after the treatment ends. Let’s all pray for her quick recovery so that she resumes school at the earliest.


I am Rahamath Ulla. I am from a small village called Ramnagar, near Tumkur. It was earlier this year I got to know my 8 year old daughter, Tasmiya is suffering from blood cancer. With bare minimum facilities available in Tumkur, I decided to bring my daughter to Bangalore to give her the best treatment. 

Her chemotherapy sessions have started at BGS Global Hospitals. Doctors are positive with a aggressive chemo sessions, Tasmiya could be completely cured.


I work as a driver and get a maximum of Rs. 400 for a trip.  With constant hospital follow ups, my service has dropped too. I have been struggling to arrange for the chemo sessions and medicines but have managed to pay for his treatment by far with help from family and relatives by loaning the funds. But to arrange 10 lakhs is next to impossible.  As his father I cannot give up. The only way to save my daughter is by your support. Please make a donation and support us. 


How can you help this father?

Rahamath Ulla works as a driver for a small car-rental agents in Kengeri. His wife is a homemaker. His younger son is 4 year old. “With so much going on, I cannot afford to send him to school this year. I need to save my Tasmiya. I had to pick between my daughter’s health and son’s education. I have loaned from friends and family but it is never enough.”

Arranging for medicines and tests since January has already been a struggle. It's not easy for a parent to see his child flight a disease this grave. Your support will save his  8 year old daughter. Please contribute now and help Rahamath Ulla
