About one year back, Anuradha’s entire body turned pale and everyone suspected it to be jaundice. Soon her health deteriorated and she was diagnosed with Leukemia, blood cancer. She underwent chemotherapy and now her body is ready to get a bone marrow transplant that can save her life.
She knows she is sick and wants to recover as soon as possible
“She doesn’t know what cancer is but she knows she is sick. My strong little child understands that these injections, machines and all these pills will fight her disease and make her better. She just wants to go back home quick and play with her siblings.”- Arti,mother
It’s been 11 months since they have gone home
Ramchandra is a daily wage labourer and works on others' farms. The transplant will cost him Rs 22 lakhs. With a mere wage of Rs 200 a day, he barely manages the household expenses and is devastated at the thought that he will never be able to save his daughter.
If we can’t afford this transplant, her cancer will come back
- Arti, holding back her tears
Anuradha did not give up on living despite all these hurdles. She loves to play in the park, goes to school with other patients and is happy now. But without this transplant, her cancer will come back and will threaten this little child’s life. You can save her.
