"He is still my baby- but has to act as the man of the house."
How it started:
Farida started feeling weak around March 2017. The family took her to the doctor in Khargone. Doctors refused to treat her as they said the case was complicated. Farida was then admitted in a hospital in Vadodara and underwent a week long treatment of blood and platelets transfusion.week long treatment of blood and platelets transfusion.
Finally, with the support of their extended family, Farida's family took her to a haemetologist, at CHL Cancer Hospitals. Dr Vinay Bohara diagnosed her with leukemia. The treatment prescribed was 10 cycles of chemotherapy- and only one is done so far.
How can you help?
Fatema's family has exhausted all means of support. They have borrowed money from friends and relatives. Fatema cannot even stay at the hospital for her remaining sessions of chemotherapy as the day care session costs Rs 10,000 a day.
Her condition is curable. Fatema needs just Rs 3 lakhs to make a full recovery- please help her now!
