Doctors are very pleased with her fighter spirit but are hoping to find a long-term solution for her condition.

From the start of this year till today, her medical bills are touching lakhs. Her immediate family and friends have borrowed money to clear about 50% of the expenses thus far. The family is in immediate need of raising more funds to clear the balance 50% of the payment. In addition, they also need funds to sustain the treatment for the coming weeks.

All funds donated will directly go to Ana's account and will only be used for medical treatment and rehabilitation.

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
