After every test, there were only more questionsA year ago, Sandhya had frequent fevers. She complained about severe body pain and slowly turned very pale and weak, it was then her parents took her to the hospital. The doctors suggested to take to a cancer hospital but the results again were negative. When her condition became worse, they took her to a hospital in Hyderabad and another biopsy confirmed that she has aplastic anemia, a serious condition in which the body stops producing enough new blood cells.
"When doctors explained her condition we broke down but she was not afraid. She asked a lot of questions to the doctor, even the doctors were surprised. The injections were painful, she was not able to do anything that she likes but she never complained once. She easily made friends in the hospital. When she gets tired, she just sleeps, sometimes the whole day," - Mangamma
