Garima has been a national level gold winner in the 800 meters sprint and has also run half marathons before, but life threw a curveball for her when she met with the accident and her family grappled with severe financial constraints. Garima’s father, who used to work as a driver in Uttarakhand, lost his job, mortgaged their house and took loans from three banks to arrange money for her treatment and just when she met with the accident her mother was also diagnosed with cancer. As a result, to provide for the family, Garima’s brother dropped out of college to work as domestic help in Mumbai.
Garima still wants to prove herself. Being pessimistic and only thinking negative in life isn’t going to get you anything, it will only harm your mind and body,” said Garima
She is suffering from 'Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury'. Due to the weak financial condition of the family, they cannot afford the medical expenses which will be approximately 20 Lakhs INR hence raising this request of arranging funds in order to make her win gold for us again.
