“She kept crying that her stomach hurts. We thought it was just a cry for attention like always. If I had taken her to the doctor earlier, she would not be in this situation, fighting cancer now.”
A few months back, 3-year-old Sanvi, daughter of Santhosh, was diagnosed with a severe form of blood cancer called Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
What is Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
It is a cancer that starts from the early version of white blood cells called lymphocytes in the bone marrow. Leukemia cells usually invade the blood fairly quickly. They can then spread to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) if not treated at an early stage.
Sanvi was advised to begin chemotherapy treatment at the earliest and she needs to undergo numerous chemo sessions and treatment in order to fight the cancer. The total cost of the treatment is around 12 lakh Rs.
Unfortunately, Santhosh does not have the funds to pay for her treatment and is worried that without the money he will lose his daughter.
Santosh is a farmer from a village in Basavakalyan in Karnataka. It has been months since Santosh tended to the crops on his field. He has been in Bangalore living in a rented room close to a hospital, caring single-handedly for his 3-year-old daughter Sanvi, who is fighting a severe form of cancer.
