The diagnosis hit Channaswami and his wife hard. “Our daughter was just a baby. We knew nothing about an illness like this. We didn't know how we would face tomorrow. But it has been 10 years, and with my friends' and family's help, Chinmayi has grown into a quiet, good child.” he says.

“Chinmayi used to ask me why her friends don't call her any more. Now, she feels that they want to play and don't call her because she cannot. She prefers to play carrom or chess indoors. The disease has made my little girl grow up very fast,” Channaswami says.
