Everyone Cried For Her, No one Spoke of Her TreatmentNandini is the second child of Arumugam and Manjula. Arumugam and Manjula are daily wage workers. Nandini's elder sister, Durga Devi is in her first year of college. After Nandini's class 10 exams, she developed a fever. A visit to a local hospital said she was suffering from Typhoid.
When the fever continued, she went another hospital and took a blood test. The result showed she is suffering from cancer. Her parents went into depression hearing this, relatives gathered and everyone was discussing the future of the teenager who has cancer. "Will she lose her hair? Who will marry her?" After a day, everyone went back to their own lives. No one spoke about treating Nandini. Her parents were caught in the cries and cues of the relatives. All the sympathy her relatives showed her, ringed in her mind as accusing her of having cancer, being a burden to the parents.
Nandini didn't have time to cry or think about how her life has changed. "How will I get cured? How will I go to a hospital and get treatment?', these thoughts flooded her mind. She couldn't face her parents.Her mother breaks down whenever she sees her. Finally, she approached her elder sister who discussed to her parents. Having the thought of seeing their daughter recover made them confident. They decided to do whatever it takes to treat her.
Months of Chemotherapy Did not help herNandini was admitted for chemotherapy. Owing to the financial condition of her family, she was given free treatment for 5 months which included chemotherapy, hospitalization charges, and food. After 5 months, her cancer was under control. Nandini joined school again.
