She cannot lift weight or walk for a longer time
Her growth and all activities are hamperedFew months back, Thanuja had a high fever. She became very tired and she often complained of back pain. Her parents thought it was just a mild pain and she’ll be well in few days but her conditions became worse. It was then they noticed that she couldn’t stand straight and pain worsens if she bends down or carries any weight.
Thanuja was taken to the hospital and her parents were told that she needs to undergo a spinal surgery to straighten her spine. She is in pain every day and is on regular medication to help her sleep. The condition, without correction, will get progressively worse. Further delay can even make shoulders and legs dysfunctional. She is hardly able to do any work on her own now. She cannot carry her own school bag.

“Our world just turned upside down. It is so hard to see her in pain every day. We have sleepless nights thinking about her health and future”
The last thing I could do is to make the Surgery a RealityThanuja’s parents have tried all possibilities to relieve her from pain. Thanuja is now undergoing physiotherapy every day which takes a huge toll on their expenses yet, they are not giving it up. They are desperately hoping that she should grow normally just like any other girl of her age would.
Thanuja’s teachers and friends are supporting. Despite all the pain and trauma, she is following her lessons with the help of her friends. She is afraid that she may have to compromise her studies for the health. She is trying her best to follow her routines. Her parents have promised her that she will be able to walk and stand straight and the surgery will happen soon. The poor girl is also aware that the parents are struggling to arrange money for her treatment.
