Nine-year-old Vanshika has malignant lymph node growth in her neck. It is a soft tissue that forms when the cells in the neck multiply and form a tumour. Vanshika suffers from various symptoms, including a chronic sore throat, nasal blockage, frequent nose bleeding, jaw discomfort, unexplained weight loss, numbness or paralysis in the head and neck region, and severe ear infection. Her tumour has spread worse and reached the middle stage.
Vanshika was hardly five when her parents noticed a small pimple-like lump on her neck. Her mother presumed it was just a small pimple that would disappear with time. But she was wrong; it turned out to be deadly. It grew in size and became a ball-sized cancerous cyst. Vanshika cannot move her neck and faces trouble eating and lying on her back. The cyst continues to spread over her cheeks and below her neck. It irritates her day and night, as the pain is intolerable.
"My child can't move her neck. She doesn't even eat anything. She can't focus on studying as the other children make fun of her. I am afraid to lose my child." Seema Devi, mother.
Her parents have no financial assets or other resources to afford her treatment. Therefore she urgently requires funds for surgery followed by chemotherapy and prolonged medical management for mentioned disorders.
Vanshika's father, Subhash, is a labourer who earns merely Rs 200 per day to feed his family. He is overburdened with the responsibility of four daughters. He is in deep depression as he is left with no means to arrange funds for his daughter's treatment. He already borrowed money for his one daughter's wedding and Vanshika's treatment which he couldn't repay.
Vanshika's parents have no idea how to pay for her treatment. They hope for a miracle to heal their daughter. Her mother is a housewife. She can't stop crying from the inside as she can't help her daughter.
"She was born with twisted feet. I made every possible effort to treat her, but everything went in vain. Now she is nine, and her suffering continues." Subhash, father.
Vanshika is in pain, and her parents are helpless. Nothing is worse for parents than seeing their children dying in front of them. Please come forward and donate to Vanshika's treatment.
