13-year old Ashwini has been battling cancer for the last three years. She has been under chemotherapy treatment and never had the funds to get a bone marrow transplant done.
Her parents are flower sellers with a very meagre income that takes care of just the household expenses .
Prema and her husband Mahadeva had to make many tough choices since their second daughter developed cancer. With a monthly income of 6,000-9,000 per month, over the last 3 years, they spent months away from home for their daughter's chemotherapy in Bangalore.
Mahadeva gave up. They just didn't have any money left. They had two other children too. A heartbroken Prema was convinced by a fellow-patient to go to Narayana Hrudayalaya. “I heard that Narayana Hrudayalaya takes up cases like ours. When we went back, I worked on convincing my husband. We can't give up on our daughter,” she says.
At the hospital, they heard of crowdfunding and this is the parents' last hope to save their daughter. They need Rs 30 lakhs to get her the bone-marrow transplant that can save her life.
In these three years, Ashwini's cancer has relapsed twice and with each relapse her parents feel overwhelming helplessness.
