Her father has slept on the hospital steps for 7 months to save her, but it's not enoughFor the past 7 months, Sreekanth has spent every night sleeping outside the cancer hospital in Bangalore. He has braved the cold and rain – but for him, this is nothing compared to what his 3-year-old is going through inside the hospital. Little Jhansi has blood cancer. It’s been months of gruelling chemotherapy and numerous injections, and her fight is still not over. Sreekanth has done his best to get her treated so far, but it’s not enough.
“She thinks that the pain is part of her life now. Even though the injections still scare her, she doesn’t cry much. It’s scary to see that my daughter thinks the hospital is her home. She’s brave. We named her after Jhansi ki rani (queen), we wanted her to be fearless and strong, and she is.” - Sreekanth, father
Jhansi has undergone 4 cycles of chemotherapy so far, she needs it for the next 2 months to beat cancer for good.
Sreekanth has not earned a single rupee in the past 7 monthsAs soon as Sreekanth and Shilpa found out that their child’s persistent fever was due to cancer, they wasted no time in taking her from Kurnool to Bangalore for treatment. Sreekanth had to mortgage his 2 acres of land to start her chemotherapy.
“I went there with Rs. 50,000, but it was all over in just a month. I’ve spent 1.5 lakhs on her treatment so far, it was all I could manage to borrow. I used to earn Rs. 300 per day, but I haven’t gone for work since August. Both of us have to stay in the hospital. Shilpa can’t leave Jhansi alone, and someone has to run around for the reports and bills. Getting work in Bangalore for a farmer like me is very difficult.”
Jhansi still needs to continue chemotherapy to beat cancer. Her parents have sacrificed a lot to get her treated so far, and Jhansi’s condition has improved – all of this will be in vain if Sreekanth and Shilpa can’t continue it further. They need your help to save their only child.
Little Jhansi has been away from her home and in severe pain for 7 months because of blood cancer. This is her only chance to fight it. She needs your help.
