A few months back 4-year-old girl Puthul Kumari Paswan was diagnosed with a severe eye cancer called Neuroblastoma.
What is Neuroblastoma?
Neuroblastoma is a type of cancer that occurs in the nerve tissues and causes severe pain in the tissues and nerves.
Puthul is suffering and has severe pain in her eye. She has been advised to undergo chemotherapy followed by a bone-marrow transplant in order to treat her condition.
Puthul's cancer has damaged her right eye. If untreated it will take her second eye as well as her life.
Now, what is left of Puthul's swollen eye often bleeds. She has a heavy bandage on her eye which needs to be changed once in two days. Sometimes, it needs to be changed more frequently if there is excessive bleeding. But the worst of it is that her second eye seems to be getting affected too.
Puthul needs this treatment at the earliest before her condition becomes even more critical. The treatment costs around 24 -27 lakh Rs.
Unfortunately, Puthul's father, Shivanath Paswan, only earns a salary of 5000 Rs a month and cannot afford the cost of treatment. He is extremely worried that without the funds his daughter will not get better.
“I have not faced so many difficulties and come this far from home to give up on Puthul's treatment”
