    Jeevana Aedulamala

    from Hyderabad, Telangana


A year back 15-year-old Jeevana was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia which is a severe form of cancer that needs to be urgently treated in order to avoid it from spreading to other parts of the body. This is when Jeevana was asked to urgently undergo stem cell transplantation.

Unfortunately, while undergoing treatment for the cancer, Jeevana recently developed GVHD which is a disease that occurs during transplants. Now, Jeevana has grown very weak and needs to urgently undergo treatment in order to survive.

Jeevana has finally almost beaten cancer. Now she is fighting graft-versus-host-disease due to her transplant

 Jeevana has been bravely fighting blood cancer since February

All Jeevana and her parents want is for her to recover as soon as possible so that she can go home and return to school and do things a normal teenager would do.

Over and above this, her parents are unable to afford the cost of her treatment which is around 8 lakh INR. They are willing to do everything it takes to save their daughter and are not ready to give up.

Jeevana's father has spent everything he has for her treatment

Jeevana developed Acute Myeloid Leukaemia – blood cancer - before she could even give her class 9 exams. Her cancer was growing at a very fast rate and without treatment, it would have spread very fast in different organs of the body.

Her father Virupachi is a tenant farmer who didn't have funds for cancer treatment. But he borrowed as much as he could and brought her to Hyderabad where her treatment could start. A crowdfunding campaign, as well as help from the Chief Minister's funds, helped her get treated with chemotherapy and a bone-marrow transplant.

“She has suffered so much. Fever, vomitting, passing blood in her urine, bleeding and ulcers in her stomach. The medicines made her very sick, but she never complained. Cancer has caused her to grow up sooner than her time,” Virupachi says.
