Baby Madithati before her diagnosis
She hasn't left the hospital since her diagnosisAll it took to bring a smile on baby Madithati's face was to take her outside. She enjoyed playing or even being taken for her walk by her father. However, ever since her cancer treatment began, she hasn't left the hospital. Madithati is now in Bangalore undergoing chemotherapy. She is very prone to infections and is restricted to the four walls of the hospital.
"If she sees the nurse carrying injections in her hand, she starts crying out loud and tells us she doesn't want it but otherwise when they come to see her, she smiles at them. We have just started the treatment, I dread to think of all the pain that lies ahead of her. But this is the only thing that can save her." - Suguna
