My name is Sakshi and I am here to raise funds for my old cook's daughter Vaishnavi Dahiya who is from a small town in Madhya Pradesh. She was detected with Retinoblastoma when she was 1 year old. She had to undergo treatment and surgery one year back in Sankara Nethralaya.
Now it has relapsed and she has to undergo chemotherapy sessions every 22nd day. Apart from the hospital and medical expenses living in a city like Chennai is becoming unaffordable for them. The cheapest lodge they can afford is costing Rs.500/day, which is far more than the father's monthly salary.
He had a blue-collar job and had to quit for this prolonged treatment in Chennai as travel back and forth from MP every 22nd day (for a year almost) is also not feasible in times of corona with a 3-year-old who is immunocompromised because of her chemo sessions.
The family has appealed for funds and I can vouch for the authenticity of the appeal. If we can collect 2.5 lac he will be able to sustain in the city and there are chances that Vaishnavi will be back to having a normal childhood. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this with friends and family.
