Little Mehnoor has cancerSaveena and Mintu were very excited when they had Mehnoor; she was their first child and the joy of becoming parents for the first time was beyond compare. They wanted to give the best to her and she became their world. But last month, Mehnoor had an extremely high fever and her body turned pale. Without any delay, the parents took her to the hospital. The little girl underwent some tests and the reports left these parents devastated.
“They said that my daughter has cancer, a disease that can leave even the strongest of adults weak. Why her? She is just a 4-year-old baby!” - Saveena, mother
Despite a fear of needles, she is compelled to undergo daily transfusionsMehnoor suffers from Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a severe type of blood cancer. AML progresses rapidly and is typically fatal within weeks or months if left untreated. She needs continued chemotherapy and radiation to survive.
“She is admitted in the hospital currently and my wife is with her. I travel daily from our home as I am not allowed to be there for long periods. My daughter is afraid of needles, but every day she has to undergo platelet transfusions as her levels get critically low otherwise. I try to be there and boost her courage, but I don’t know how to save her life.” -Mintu, father
They are struggling to save their daughter, you can help
“With the help of my family and friends, in addition to what little savings I had, I managed to afford her treatment so far but I am unable to continue now. The entire treatment will cost us lakhs of rupees and I am just a tailor. I cannot afford it.” - Mintu
The treatment will cost the parents 10 lakh rupees which they cannot afford. They need help to save their child and you are their only hope.
