Tasleem got the wrong treatment for 4 months
“We spent over Rs 60,000 thinking that she had a lump in her thyroid and that needed to be fixed. When she became so sick, we took her to Hyderabad. There she was diagnosed with blood cancer. All these days my daughter was suffering this horrible illness and she was taking the wrong medicine,” Rahiman says.
The family needs a hope to carry on
“A person needs some hope to go on. We are poor people and can't hope for a lot of happiness. But I cannot take away what little peace my wife and children have by telling them that Tasleem has cancer. It would break them and I cannot imagine what will happen,” Rahiman says.
Tasleem's father is the only one who knows that Tasleem has blood cancer
