Fever that leaves her shivering and infections that can be fatalDue to her weak immune system, Mayra is very prone to infections and even the smallest of infection can turn out to be fatal.
“No matter how much I clean the house or take precautions, infections find a way to reach her. She has high fevers every now and then which crosses 104 and sometimes even touches 105 degrees. Every time it happens, her small body shivers and she cries endlessly. If this continues, doctors say she might...that we might lose her.” - Shivani, mother
She is getting better but this happiness won’t stay for long without a transplantIf you see Mayra now, you wouldn’t believe she is suffering from a life-threatening disease. Her smile will make your heart melt. This is the best that Mayra has ever been but it might not last long.
“6 long months and it is now that we see her smile a little. She recognizes Karan and me and is so much better now. But her hardships aren't over yet, she needs a bone marrow transplant at the earliest and it should be done while she is healthy but…” - Shivani
No middle-class family can afford this much of moneyThe transplant will cost 35 lakhs which Karan and Shivani cannot afford and that too within the next few days. Karan works as a medical representative and Shivani use to work as a nurse in a hospital. Their income and savings are not enough to save their only daughter and they are devastated.
“4 lakhs, 5 lakhs...how much more can a middle-class family save? That’s what we had and we spent it all to save her but 35 lakhs more? How will we ever manage that?”- Karan
