Faith is all about seeing a light of hope with your heart when darkness is all around. When everything in life seems to be lost, faith is the key to survival. 11-year-old Vanshika, who cannot stand or lie down without being in pain, has blind faith in God.

She visits the temple barefoot two times a day, keeps fast, and performs pooja with the hope of a miracle to heal her. When all doors were shut, she knocked at the entrance of Almighty, where nothing goes unheard.

"For the last few years, my daughter has lived a miserable life with a hump on her back. She has turned so weak that she is in pain day and night. Now her condition has worsened. She has become a subject of mockery for children in school. Her spine is so bent that she can't hold herself anymore." Pushpa Devi, mother.

11-year-old Vanshika is suffering from Kyphoscoliosis. Kyphoscoliosis is an abnormal spine curvature in both a coronal and sagittal plane. It combines kyphosis and scoliosis and requires deformity correction surgery costing lakhs.

When Vanshika was five-year-old, she developed a high fever. Her parents rushed her to the nearest hospital and were shocked to discover that their little angel suffered from such a rare spine condition. This condition has hampered Vanshika's growth. Even her upper body is short due to the curved spinal cord.

"My chest, stomach and back, ache badly. I can't sleep at night. I spend the whole night sipping on water. My classmates tease me by calling with weird names. I want to study hard and become a police officer. I want to make my parents proud as they suffer a lot because of me. Please help me." Vanshika.

Vanshika has a curved spine with a big hump on her back. Her back hurts as she sits, stands or lies down. She also experiences chest pain with difficulty in breathing. She can't even eat properly due to continuous stomach aches. There is a significant change in her posture, making it difficult to walk. The doctors advised that she needs to undergo surgery at the earliest to avoid further complications. Unfortunately, her parents are unable to afford it.

"My daughter is a strong girl. She accepts and fights strongly with her deformity. My child has faith in God. She visits the temple and prays for her wellness every day. I am confident that God will have some mercy on us. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to afford her treatment. I have already spent everything I had." Shokinder, father.

A poor labourer with minimal earnings cannot afford the surgery to give his daughter a new life.

Vanshika's father is a poor labourer. His shoulders are breaking with the responsibility of five children, his parents, and his ailing daughter. He barely affords two meals a day for his family. Her mother is a housewife. She prays to God to heal her daughter every day.

Vanshika's condition is getting worse with every passing day. The curve of her spine is now pressing against her heart. The throbbing pain in her chest makes it difficult for her to survive. Only surgery can save her life.
