Tanisha Doesn't Know That The Needles In Her Body Are To Save Her Life

Tanisha tries to rip the needle off her hand. She is just 2 years old, but this little girl can no longer bear the pain. She has been away from home since her second birthday. She doesn't know that she is a cancer patient and that her time is running out. Her poor parents are facing a huge challenge to continue her treatment.

Shortly after celebrating her second birthday, Tanisha got a high fever. She became extremely dull and unresponsive. Seeing the sudden shift in their daughter, Taraknath and his wife, Toushima, took her to the hospital. Tests showed a big drop in her platelet count and Tanisha needed immediate hospitalization. A bone-marrow test showed that she had blood cancer. Since then, baby Tanisha has been under constant observation and grueling treatment.

She lost her hair and is very weak now
Tanisha is just 2 years old but she does realise the change in her appearance. It's the chemotherapy which makes her unhappy and irritable. She doesn't understand why her parents brought her to a place where everyone pricks her with needles and leaves her alone in the room.

"Her agitation has worsened to a point where she no longer keeps the needle in place and all the drugs have to be administered via the Hickman line - an IV inserted to a vein in her chest - so we can at least hold her hands and restrain her".

She tries to smile whenever she is little relieved from pain
Tanisha has been hospitalised for about 6 months now, with chemotherapy sessions scheduled every alternate day.

"She smiles through the pain, not knowing how grave her illness is. She’s too young to be this sick, if only we could somehow reverse fate.”
Taraknath and Toushima are ready to give their lives to save their daughter but these unfortunate parents are struggling for money.

Her father has no money left for the treatment
Taraknath works as a contract labourer with a small firm that manufactures gates and grills. He earns daily wages of Rs 4,000 a month and his wife is at home, taking care of their ailing daughter and household chores.

"I make Rs 4,000 a month, how can I afford a treatment worth lakhs of rupees? I have borrowed so much money that I feel uncomfortable even stepping out of the house. I don't know how I will ever return it."

Tanisha before she became sick
So far, Taraknath has spent over Rs 12 lakhs. He has borrowed money from his employer, his friends, relatives and even his customers. He has sold all of Toushima's jewelry to arrange fund for this treatment. Let his poverty not decide the fate of his little girl.

How you can help
These parents are in a desperate situation. Even after borrowing and selling everything, they are unable to save their daughter. With our support, they can save their little girl. Funds raised through this fundraiser will go towards Tanisha's life-saving treatment.
