Parents never thought Nitiksha’s pain in her arm would turn out to be a deadly cancerWhen Nitiksha started complaining about pain in her right arm, her parents did not take it serious and thought it might be because of writing and drawing for hours. Though she was given medicines after doctor’s consultation, the pain didn’t subside and a few days later she got a swelling in her shoulder. After a series of tests, she was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, an aggressive form of blood cancer that affects the immune cells.
She needs chemotherapy, without that she’ll not survive
“I have told her that she has blood infections. She's too little to even understand what cancer means. Every time I take her for the chemo session, she would just hide behind my back and clutch my hand tightly saying she doesn't want this treatment. But she needs this. It’s the only way I can save her life.” - Chinnaya, father

Chinnaya could start Nitiksha’s treatment by taking help from his boss. Nitiksha has undergone 2 chemo sessions and she needs to continue her treatment for one more month.
“My wife takes care of my son at home and I stay with my daughter in the hospital. I don’t even have any savings or property to sell. I don’t know how to arrange Rs 10 lakhs for her treatment. My boss has been generously helping me with about Rs 3 lakhs for Nitiksha’s treatment. But how much more of help can I ask him?” - Chinnaya.
